Aladdin is not doing well and needs help!
**$1,000 STIPEND** Aladdin will show you the world, You don’t need a magic carpet ride to find shining, shimmering, splendor @ MACC
* A $1000 stipend will be offered to the New Hope partner that pulls Aladdin #71143.*
He stands and waits for attention, patiently, and he wags his tail. ALADDIN is so brave and stoic as he smiles through his pain, eager for love, asking for nothing but care and human kindness. His life has not been the happiest, but even after 7 years of neglect, he still dreams that somehow, some way, someone will see him for the treasure he is and pick him, will love him, and will make him whole again. He has so much heart. He is love personified. But he desperately needs a foster or adopter ASAP so he can get the vetting he needs. Aladdin needs a gastrostomy so he can get the nutrition he needs to not lose further weight (he is so emaciated), and he also needs a laparotomy so there can be a more comprehensive analysis of his abdominal cavity and organs because the ultrasound they gave him was not able to diagnose the source of his medical condition. Will you please give this dear boy a soft place to land. If you foster, the rescue that pulls will pay all medical, you add love and support. Aladdin is the sweetest thing – doesn’t he deserve a chance to live, be happy, and finally – be loved? Message our page for assistance – hurry please.

I can show you the world…Or the perfect pup! You don’t need a magic carpet ride to find shining, shimmering, splendor. You just need to head to Manhattan ACC and meet our resident prince of hearts Aladdin! At 7 years-young this silver-coated cutie is about as lovely and sweet as they come, whether it’s trotting along happily beside you on a walk, nuzzling his beloved tennis ball, or sitting and smiling for a treat! Aladdin arrived to us quite underweight but this heartthrob has been gaining weight as steadily as he has admirers and now is looking absolutely #swoon. And have I mentioned those ears?! One up, one down, one left, one right, if you can decide which way you love Aladdin’s ears the most – don’t worry! They change direction all the time like the wind! Wonderful Aladdin is playful, attentive, and bright, and can sometimes be over-eager with his treats, so might benefit from a quick brush-up on his manners. You don’t need a magic carpet or even a genie in a bottle to find your fairytale ending. Just come meet our Aladdin today. Aladdin is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC
Aladdin is ready for a whole new world <3

PLAYGROUP NOTES - DOG TO DOG SUMMARIES:
Aladdin initially displayed some interest in greeting select dogs in the care center. He has recently displayed some reactivity when greeting others dogs (growls, barks). Due to this selectivity, a dog park environment is not recommended for Aladdin. Future introductions to dogs should be monitored closely and conducted on a one-on one basis.
8/6: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Aladdin is soft and appropriate when greeting. He remains interested in re-approaching.
8/7-8/9: Aladdin approaches and greets female dogs politely.
8/11: Aladdin is more playful when greeting other dogs today.
8/12: Aladdin ignores the helper dog. He is fixated on growling and barking at dogs passing through the yard.
INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Date of intake: 1-Aug-2019
Summary: loose body, friendly, allowed all handling
