"Hi, I'm Coast! I am a 2 year old petite, lady-like and dainty pit mix (so I'm told), that weighs about 55 lbs. My foster family says I appear to be mixed with Dalmatian since my pattern of black spots and white fur is so prominent. Or, at least I *look* more like a Dalmatian, they say.
I'm not the type to boast as I'm typically very quiet and humble, but I'm told that I'm a little doll and the *perfect* family pet. I think that's because I'm house-trained, crate trained, I have good manners (I know - and respond - to commands such as sit, down, come, stay), I walk gently on the leash, I sit like a lady in the car, I hardly ever bark, and most of all, I LOVE other dogs, and kids, too!
My foster parents say they will be heartbroken to see me go to my forever home, only because they say I'm perfect in every way, but it's the only way they can continue to foster and save other nycacc survivors like me.
Right now, I'm sharing attention-time and yard-time with 4 other dogs here. I'm very grateful and appreciative to be safe here, but I really would like to get settled into the forever home that I know must be waiting for me for somewhere.... will you be my forever family? I promise, I'll be the most well-behaved pet you've ever had and I won't let you down! I am spayed, heart worm tested, have all my shots and I am microchipped too!
Thank you for considering me!"
