Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Amandi . My animal id is #60919. I am a female brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 3 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a agency on 24-Apr-2019.


Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Amandi is at risk for medical reasons. Amandi was diagnosed with canine infectious respiratory disease complex which is contagious to other animals and will require in home care. Behaviorally, Amandi becomes quickly overstimulated and will benefit from behavior modification.

You may know me from such films as...

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A volunteer writes: Amandi is a ball of sweetness and love who will make a wonderful addition to your family! She is the epitome of puppy enthusiasm! She LOVES people, she LOVES dogs, she LOVES toys, and she LOVES belly rubs! On our walk she wanted to greet everybody with friendly tail waggles and happy pants for all people and dogs. In the yard she had happy zoomies just to be out. When I introduced a toy she had more adorable happy zoomies. After a few rounds of zoomies Amandi was happy to accept some belly rubs and treats, with no complaints about the drizzle of rain outside. Amandi is an amazing dog in need of an amazing person (people) who is willing to do some basic training with her (which is sure to be a success as Amandi wants nothing more than to please her humans). Come meet this bouncy ball of loveliness at the Manhattan ACC today!

We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
