“*AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION from the MANHATTAN ANIMAL CARE & CONTROL in NYC* Meet HARLEM (ID# 0941951)!! There is no question about it: HARLEM is a gorgeous masterpiece of a dog! Truly, he looks as if his coat has been hand-painted by a gifted artist whose work could appear in the finest museum. But even more important than his unique good looks, HARLEM has a playful, loving personality that SHINES! He is just exquisite all around. PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTING HARLEM and PLEASE SHARE!”
10 months old
Entered the shelter as a stray
A volunteer writes: Handsome Harlem is impossible to miss in his kennel. He coloring is so unusual and his eyes so dancing that I simply couldn’t resist him. Harlem looks like he is wearing the newest fashion - a camouflage coat!! His coat is shining and healthy looking, his tail wags as we go out the door. He ‘goes’ immediately so may be housetrained, but is a puppy so may need a refresher course. Harlem has wonderful puppy energy - he would love to be out for a run, chasing a ball anything that is physical. He has that playful puppy stuff going on and I wished I could have just let him run! Harlem came up into my lap for hugs and kisses but at this stage in his life is more interested in playing. Needless to say he attracted alot of attention during our walk - between his unusual coloring and his friendly outgoing personality people are drawn to him - as I was. And, as we hope you will be too. This energetic boy is looking for an active household, one in which he will thrive with plenty of exercise, and training to help him develop into the rock star dog he will be.
Formal behavior evaluation: “Experienced/no children: Harlem was excited and mouthy during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. He was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Harlem did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. He was easy to handle when chewing on rawhides, but was not interested in toys. Harlem was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful.
AVAILABLE FOR DIRECT ADOPTION at the Manhattan Animal Care & Control in NYC (326 E 110th Street, New York, NY 10029) (shelter website:http://www.nycacc.org/).
