06/24/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Mister… what a cute name for a sharp looking little guy! He reminds me of a tap dancer with a top hat and a cane. Mister is so ready to go for a walk. He is right behind his door, all eyes on me, body wiggling and tail wagging. He is welcoming of anyone coming his way. Mr. Congeniality! Mister pulls a little on the leash and does his business at once. He marks a little his territory as he is an un-neutered male, but meets quite politely other dogs in the street. Free in a pen, he comes immediately when called, sits on command and loves, loves , loves treats. He was taught to play ball and showed me his skills. He jumps on the bench upon request and gets his “shot” of caresses. He is a good looking little guy, well groomed in his dark coat splashed with copper and dotted trimmings. Clearly, Mister is used to being around people, and according to his former owners, he seems like the ideal family dog. Great with kids, welcoming of strangers, playful with toys and other dogs, affectionate, not destructive… still, he was relinquished to us as his owners had no time for him and could not afford his care anymore. Mister, I bet, misses his home and family but will be a new owner’s best friend if he is given a chance. Come and meet Mister at the Manhattan Care Center. He is a born family dog!!
