07/31/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Juno is by no means, unkempt. He is a smart looking, well groomed and compact little guy who seems to know the ABC’s and more of all that a good dog should be. He was a family dog, adopted from our own care center few years ago and surrendered to us as his owners are moving out of state. Juno comes with excellent recommendations and is deemed by our own behavioral department to fit in almost any home setting. He is seen quite often strolling around the block with volunteers who have only good things to say about him. Juno pulls on the leash, but once he relieves himself, his pace slows down. He is very sociable, welcoming people and dogs alike with a wagging tail and a big smile. He has to be coaxed to go back to the building as… he would like to return to a home sweet home and not a kennel. Juno is a smart little guy. He knows what is out there, he knows what his heart desires… You, a family, a place to call his home. Free in a pen, Juno is rather low key. He comes right away when called, sits on command, and for treats that he takes very politely from my hand. He hops on the benches when requested and lays across my lap for caresses. Juno is an endearing chap, real cute with his one ear up and one ear down. He is a friendly, sociable and affectionate pooch who was a family dog just yesterday. Come and meet him at the Manhattan Care Center and give him the chance to be again what Juno does best… being a loving and loyal pet.
