#364 Manny

Adopted on 1/26/2013

Biography

Manny has had quite a few changes in his seven years, but he’s managed to adjust each time and is eager to please; Manny [3]he’s food-motivated and enjoys doing obedience exercises for treats.

He came to GSRNE from a shelter, and we were told that his former owner had adopted him from there five years ago and was now losing her home to a foreclosure.  The reason he was turned in the first time was due to the owner’s homeowner insurance being canceled because she had a German Shepherd dog.  Sadly, the people didn’t check around for another insurance company.

At one point, Manny lived with 6 children, ages 8-16; and with 2 cats and a Pomeranian, so he’s had a variety of social experiences.

Initially, in foster care, he would race around the fenced yard as though he didn’t know what to do with himself; hisManny [4] foster Mom called it having the “Zoomies.” He would charge at the fence when the neighbor’s dogs were out in their yard barking at him, but can walk past other dogs on leash as long as those dogs are under control.  Manny is constantly learning new words and commands, and he has let us know that he really likes chewing on a bully stick or a marrow bone or playing with a stuffed toy.  When he was given a Kong stuffed with peanutbutter, though, he did not show much interest.

Mostly, Manny likes doing things with his humans and is not interested in having another dog for a playmate.  If you’re looking for an active guy who will find you more interesting than anything else in his world, he may be the one you’re looking for!
