PUMPERNICKEL – A1037582
***SAFE 06/01/15***PUMPERNICKEL IS A DELICIOUS, HEALTHY AND SWEET BUT SCARED CREAMSICLE! Pumpernickel is a year and a half old hunky gingerbread man who was devastated at being surrendered due to “allergies” by his owner who had him since he was a kitten. He is described as gentle, playful, somewhat friendly, glentle when he plays with his owner but shy around new people. Everyone knows creamsicle boys are the sweetest and surely Pumpernickel is no exception. He was just very upset at losing the only home he ever knew so was grumpy during his behavior eval. He will surely decompress once he feels safe and secure in a loving, new home. Please offer this handsome fella a new “leash” on life. Please contact a NH rescue for assistance. Put a little love in your heart and home with the delicious Pumpernickel!!!
