Cottonwood is an adorable crumpet toasted to perfection and sweetened with chocolate and honey…Delicious……is the first word that comes to mind after having spent just few minutes with him. This five month old little boy is genuine innocence…A little timid at first in his kennel, he lets me scoop him up and carry him close to my chest. The yard is our playground. Cottonwood seems quite happy to be in company. He is lively, all wiggly and tail wagging. He follows me like a shadow, even sits on commands and loves my treats. He is a bit on the thin side and of course, has a lot of growing up to do…Cottonwood owns the sweetest and most eloquent eyes, a very tender face, a lovely silky coat and has that very special way to tilt his head….I want to hug him tight and make him feel all better, safe and loved…Cottonwood has a weak left hind but it does not prevent him to run, trot, jump up and down a bench. He seems to like other dogs, half play bows to some and would not mind, it seems to cross the gate and join them…What’s not to like about Cottonwood? His name is cute and whimsical, his ways are friendly, sociable, loving and needy..He is a good little boy…who needs… you to grow up into the wonderful adult, the man(woman)’s best friend his mama wanted him to be… Come and meet Cottonwood at the Manhattan Care Center. He is so eager to meet you.

Meet Cottonwood!! This cutey is only 5 months old and looking for a home. He came to the care center with a lameness in his left hind leg, but is still in high spirits. Cottonwood is just a happy go lucky pup! He was found as a stray, and the finder brought him home for the night, saying he was respectful of her cat. Please pull baby Cottonwood from MACC today!!
Possible pain on long bone palpation

Cottonwood was brought into the shelter as a stray, after a client found him roaming in the street in her neighborhood. Client kept Cottonwood overnight. She stated that he was fine with her cat that she has at home. Client stated that while the cat was scared, Cottonwood seemed unbothered by the cat’s presence.
Behavior during intake
Cottonwood was relaxed and playful during intake. He accepted treats from my hand, and allowed me to touch and pet him. Cottonwood was easy to handle, and showed no signs of aggression during intake.
