Maybe it's just cold at the Manhattan Animal Care Centers. Or maybe Liquorish knows his number came up on Thursday, and he's hours past the time when he can officially be put down.
Maybe he shivers from a general sense of a world - a world that saw him purchased from a pet store and then given up because, according to a Facebook post from animal rescuers who work with the shelter, he's "too hyper."
That same post notes, however, that he was only taken for walks twice a week. If that's the case, a certain pent-up energy may be understandable. And maybe a certain sense of betrayal too.
But shelter workers see no hint of bitterness in this love-starved dog.
