09/15/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I met Moomoo( then Heather) two years ago and now again with a changed name chosen because of her gorgeous cow print coat. I remember her quite well, so playful with the ball, very lively and so affectionate… A pigeon chaser too.. She joined a family with children and two female Pities with whom she got along very well unless food was involved. Her owners dealt very nicely with the issue making sure all the pooches were fed separately. The main reason for Moomoo surrendering is the fact that she is very protective of her humans and would like them to live in a “bubble” safeguarded by her…. Her owners have other wise only great things to say about her. She was beautifully cared for and looks even more gorgeous than the day she left the care center the first time around. Her eyes are luminous. She is trim, healthy and wears a shiny dress. Moomoo loves food and will jump for it, search my bag but will listen when ask to stop. She sits then immediately, waiting for the next order. She walks briskly and eliminates as soon as she leaves the building. She is fine meeting other dogs in the street but seems to me at little uncomfortable encountering them in a playgroup, mostly if they are too pushy. I even saw her taking refuge high up on a bench … Moomoo just arrived at the care center. She needs a little more time to get accustomed to her new premises…Like any dog or any person, Moomoo has her flaws next to other wonderful qualities. Not every home is the same and I bet that there is a one out there just perfect to welcome lovely and affectionate Moomoo who is waiting full of hope at the Manhattan care Center.
