A volunteer writes: Little Tortellini was left at our facility as her owners could not afford her anymore…Indeed, she is in need of some skin care which means vet’s bills and TLC…Tortellini might be 10 but she is as described by her former family an active gal who enjoys the company of people. Very little is said about her as far as house training or other useful information for new owners but she would be happier in a house without children. Tortellini is an easy going lady, quite pretty and well groomed. Her eyes that squint in the sun are still bright and her markings are lovely. She walks at a brisk pace, sits …on command, comes when called and eats roast beef with a hefty appetite. She relieved herself at our two outings but of course, we can not guarantee perfect house training.Tortellini is a friendly, cute, up and about elderly would would love to be given a chance, start a new page in her life and show that older is the new young…It’s all in the mind….Will you be the one opening your home and heart to little Tortellini? She is waiting patiently for you at the Manhattan Care Center.
