TO BE KILLED - 10/19/2018
Handsome, sweet, wiggly & WONDERFUL, Armstrong is adored by the STAFF and VOLUNTEER at the Manhattan Center. And boy, he loves his toys! This smiling wiggle butt may have come to the shelter as a stay but he wasted no time gathering every heart at his paws, & making friends in #DOGGY
playgroup too! We loved that when he entered the room for his #behavior
assessment he ran right up to the assessor & jumped up & kissed him (or her). He got STELLAR scores too, and that was no surprise to us, given how absolutely #perfect
he is. What a complete doll. This BEAUTIFUL boy is dreaming of a place to call his own...will it be you who makes his DREAMS come true? HURRY for time is of the #ESSENCE
