RIDDLE – 19504
Safe - 2-19-2018 Manhattan
SAFE 2/19/18 WATCH HER VIDEO! Riddle is a sweet beauty who is in need of a loving home. The lacerations on her right thigh and tail–at least 2 weeks old are healing. A volunteer writes: This is a pretty girl with the softest coat. When I met her, she was really enjoying her food, and loves treats. She is a little slow to warm up, but then really likes having her head scratched. I suggest that with this sweet girl you just have to move slowly until she gets to know you. She also has a very clean home.
