I love kids and dogs.I am a mom, a pediatrician and a volunteer at the Manhattan Care Center Kids like dogs come with all kinds of temperaments and express all kinds of behaviors. We labeled them quickly as great, good or bad…Mostly when they are not ours.. Let’s look a little closer at the matter…Indeed, we all feel and react to things happening around us differently but ill-reactions can be modified, mostly in youngsters, with consistent training and teaching , lots of love and belief that we can make a difference. Life is precious and pups like kids have to be given a chance to live happily their full life…Juice is no exception. I met Juice a warm afternoon of April. She was waiting calmly in her kennel, all eyes on me, one ear up and one ear down, as cute as a button. I could not resist. I was a little tired and decided that I would lazy around in a pen. That suited Ms Juice all right.. She was one happy gal !, running around, going after a ball and laying on me , on her back, kissing me her head up side down.. She was such a fun, such a joy to be with.. Juice seems to love dogs and play bows to them in the yard or in the street. She walks quite well in the street after one aborted attempt to grab the leash from me. A firm no …and she understood. I was quite taken by Juice, a playful, really affectionate young and beautiful nine month old puppy. Her behavioral evaluation showed that she can become a bit too excited when she is pushed around which means , in other words, that she needs to be taught the proper manners to become a well behaved adult. It is not too late. There is hope for Juice. She is a young and loving girl I have put all my bets on her.

PHYSICAL EXAM-WITHIN NORMAL LIMITS
For more information on adopting please read the following:
DO NOT call the shelter and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff’s time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a “fake adoption” hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
For more information on a particular dog, email email@example.com but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates… the only thing you will accomplish is spamming their in boxes and causing REAL adopter emails to go unnoticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions. — with Christine Hendricks, Melanie Murphy, Asecondchance Foranimals and Cindy Jo Schlomm-Aliseo.
