04/08/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: My heart breaks for Precious, a sweet, gentle dog whose value as a loving companion and family pet was overlooked in favor of her ability to produce litter after litter of puppies. Not comfortable with being touched, her fear is noticeable, and though she’s extremely easy to handle and allows me to dress and cuddle her with no complaints it’s clear that she’s enduring rather than enjoying my closeness. She’s a fantastic leash walker and seemingly quite house trained as she keeps a clean den and does all her business outside but once loose in a pen she chooses the furthermost corner for herself, crouching alone against the wall and trying to be as quiet and meek as possible. Treats are flatly refused and though I know she likes other dogs from the friendly nose to nose greetings she offers through her kennel door, even a passing pooch isn’t enough to make Precious stir from her self-imposed exile. Sometimes a dog this frightened is distant and hard to read but Precious wears her heart in her eyes and it’s clear that buried under the fear there’s a loyal, affectionate girl who was never given a real chance to love or be loved. It’s time for this ebony beauty to finally be treasured as a pet, not a paycheck. Precious has waited 6 long years so if you’re an experienced dog lover who can offer her the caring, patient forever home she deserves then please don’t hesitate, let her new life start today… A volunteer updates: Precious is slowly learning to trust in the goodness of humans again and I’m happy to report that while she’s still quiet and shy, the petrified dog I first met is long gone. I can pet her all over with no cringing, she’s keen to get out for a walk and her tail wags happily as she strolls along while sniffing, exploring and enjoying the sunshine. If this beautiful girl can make such impressive progress after only a few days with us, imagine how wonderful it will be to see her transform in a real home. Come on in to our Manhattan Care Center and make both your dreams a reality, patient Precious is waiting…

Precious has shown fearful behavior around other dogs. In her first opportunity to interact with other dogs she was stiff and growling. Once muzzled, she was able to interact and continued to growl and bark once in close promixity to the male helper dog.
