About Me

If you’re looking for a dog to be your companion, Manny is a dancing, prancing little bundle of happiness and personality! He loves to chase balls, and he’ll even fetch for a while. He’d be an ideal companion for an outdoors-lover and could definitely excel in a multi-dog household.

Walks are great but Manny needs a yard where he can run around, ideally with a dog and a human playmate. Manny has spent many months in the company of a wide variety of dogs and is a favorite companion and playmate. The friendship continues inside when everyone relaxes and Manny grooms other dogs like he’s a cat. That’s Manny, a unique personality!

Although Manny is fed in a crate and will often seek out his open crate to relax in, he’s had free-rein on the main level in his foster house. Not only is his house-training solid but he doesn’t destroy things that are not his; he owns many toys and chewables that he enjoys gnawing on. However, as with any dog in an unfamiliar home, Manny should be monitored carefully to be sure he has retained those in-home skills.

Manny does seem to think he’s human sometimes and loves to balance and walk on his rear legs. He would benefit greatly from continued training on basic commands like come, sit and stay. Manny is very smart and gentle voice correction or redirection is very useful for him to learn your expectations. He’s also a very affectionate little dog with people and loves to cuddle with you.

Grooming is a breeze with Manny’s short and sleek coat which only requires at-home brushing and washing. If you prefer less shedding inside your home, just increase coat brushing.

If you would treasure this loving young dog and can commit to providing a forever-home where his health and happiness are priorities, please complete an application for Manny!
