Gordon

STATUS: AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AT MANHATTAN AC&C

[shelter info at bottom of post]

Meet GORDON!!! ID# 0922377

Male

1.5 years old

58 lbs

Entered the shelter as a stray

A volunteer writes:  Be still my heart; Gordon is a knockout!  And, it isn’t just me – he got so many compliments as we were walking through the park.  He is a beautiful white/amber boy, his coat shiny and healthy.  Gordon appears to be housetrained, taking care of business as soon as we were out the door.  His leash manners are wonderful, he sits on command, and took treats from my hand so gently I could barely feel it.  He is calm, gentle and a sweetheart.  As I was tethering him to the fence for his photoshoot, he kept giving me kisses and hugs.  Gordon would rather kiss than do just about anything!  He posed well for photos as if he has done this 1000x before.  What a rock star!!!  I fell head over heels in love with Gordon today and I am sure you will do the same once you meet him.    Don’t wait too long – Gordon is ready to find his new family and begin a new life.  If you are lucky, it will be with you.

Nena

STATUS: AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AT MANHATTAN AC&C

Meet NENA!!! ID# 0922066

Female

10 months old

50 lbs

*Another photo of NENA is posted in this album – check it out! http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151202504555403&set=a.10150712209565403.706595.323965755402&type=1&theater

A Volunteer Writes: At first, Nena seems very frightened in her kennel, overwhelmed with finding herself here. But within moments of having her out on a walk, her true, happy-go-lucky spirit emerges. She’s an absolute riot, completely curious about every single thing and every single person, wanting to say hello, check it all out, and then doing a little dance dance dance of happiness. She seems absolutely delighted to be near other dogs, and is desperately eager to please, responsive on a leash and allowing her walker to correct her immediately. Nena would make a wonderful pet in a loving home, and we are so eager for her to know what it is to be loved again, with stability and sweetness so she never has to be frightened again.


Another volunteer writes:  I really wasn’t prepared to fall in love with Nena, but fall in love I did.  Nena is a stunning brindle with a healthy shiny coat.  She is shy at first, not sure of me, not sure of how she should behave, not sure of what this walk will bring.  Within minutes, she decides that all is well and she can be herself and she bursts with love.  She gives hugs and kisses, her tail wags a mile a minute and she radiates good will.  People watch her on the street as she is so clearly a lover in a brindle body that one cannot help but smile as she passes.  One of our kennel workers kept looking at her and saying “she is so gorgeous”.  He repeated that several times in the course of 10 minutes.  She is both gorgeous outside and inside and is waiting to find her forever.  We are hopeful that her forever will start today and will start with you.
