Returned After One Day But They Can't Convince That It's Andrew's (Archie's) Fault.

He's awesome!!! Just read his notes and watch his videos. A volunteer writes: "Andrew wants to know, “which way’s the beach??” Yep this adorable, low-riding hippo has muscles to spare but he’s hardly all about the gym. He’s all about the kisses! Little Andrew (“Andy” to friends) is sweet as pie and equally delicious with his obvious bulldog heritage and that cappuccino coat.

One look at him, calm and sweet in his kennel, and I just know I’m in for a treat. He is easily leashed and a tired girl’s dream trotting right by my side on those little toothpick legs. Once in the park he sniff, sniff, sniffs nearly every inch of grass before at long last choosing just the perfect spot. He later leads us to a bench where our little teapot (short and stout) sits beautifully for pictures drawing quite the crowd. And in no time everyone is smiling, giggling, and/or laughing with nary a shortage of “oohhh”s and “awwww”s.

Andy is a lover of treats and takes every one with picture-perfect manners (and maybe a side of drool) right from my hand (hint: turkey is a favorite). Unfortunately this is not Andy’s first stay with us. He was adopted then returned after only one day. But don’t shed one tear for our hungry hippo I tell you not a one. Because that only means that Andy’s perfect family is still out there searching, waiting, and readying for our boy, and how lucky they will be. No need to look for the beach because that’s just what life is if your life has Andy in it. Little Andrew (that’s “Andy” to you) is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC."
