Meet SARAH!!! ID# 0922012
3 years old
Entered the shelter as a stray
A volunteer writes: I met Sarah on the day she came to the shelter and was struck by her beauty and soft manner then, and had the same reaction to her on my second meeting. Sarah is a stunning gray and white pittie, with healthy, shiny fur and a lovely way about her. Both times I have seen her she is trembling in her kennel, unaccustomed to the roar of activity and loud barking of other dogs. She is happy to be leashed for a outing, stepping ladylike out of her kennel and heading towards the door. She relieves herself immediately indicating she is likely houstrained. Sarah has wonderful leash manners, walking quietly by my side, never pulling. She sits on command and takes my offered treat very gently. Sarah is affectionate in her quiet way, giving hugs and kisses and happy to receive them in return. She seems to like other dogs we passed, wagging her tail in friendship to all, regardless of size or breed. Sarah will fit into any family situation and all she asks is that she be loved. Knowing Sarah, this is not a hard ask. Please meet her today.
This dog is located at the Manhattan AC&C (326 E 110th Street, NYC 10029). Please act quickly and GO DIRECTLY TO THE SHELTER to adopt (open 7 days per week from 8AM-7PM, adoptions opens at noon).
