A volunteer writes: Picnic is not your typical posh pet nor your typical pound puppy. He seems a bit rough around the edges, tough and independent. He is quite unusual looking, though, and is overcoming his initial fears. I was pleasantly surprised this time to see him going on his own to his kennel door and getting leashed without fuss. Not the same dog I met the day after his arrival. Excellent! Picnic is a good walker, a bit of a marker, and seems fine meeting other dogs--even one who growled at him. He is particularly interested in lady dogs, and I bet that he will `court` with all his heart in playgroups with his peers. Picnic sits on command and loves treats that he takes very politely from my hand. He does not mind to be `in the spotlight` and be photographed. He even appeared to enjoy warming up his body in the sun and looked all relaxed. Picnic seems to have been well cared for. Gorgeous coat, well groomed, great weight and after all, a quite friendly chap. Picnic brews quite a number of breeds inside him, many of reserved and loyal nature. Come and meet Picnic at the Manhattan Care Center, try to guess who is ancestors might be, but mostly take him home as your forever best friend.

Another volunteer writes: It''s hard not to be attracted to this unique and good looking boy. His coat is lush and gorgeous with handsome tiger markings, and his dark tongue speaks of his Chow heritage. Initially scared when he first joined us, he now knows a person with a leash in hand means a nice walk and a chance to go potty. His leash manners are lovely, although he pulls towards the squirrels in the park. Off leash, he came in for some soft snuggles, and gave me a kiss to seal our friendship. Picnic may be slow to deem you his friend, but once you are, you''re a friend for life with all the trust, love and steadfastness that comes along with it.
