TO BE KILLED - 1/17/2019
PUBLICLY ADOPTABLE “His favorite thing to do is to be pet.” -- Former owner
MISTER is wondering if he will EVER find a family that stays. Given to his most recent OWNER by someone who FOUND him only 3 months earlier in an EMPTY apartment, this poor boy has been bounced around. His latest owner gave him up for NO TIME! Friendly, affectionate, playful, shy & so mellow, he is most comfortable crawling into your lap for cuddles & comfort. Who can blame Mister? He has had a cuddle deficit😕. Volunteers adore him, & that’s no surprise, & he loves them right back. He has “cherry eye” a condition more annoying than painful, but it can easily be REMEDIED with surgery. Gentle with children, shyly friendly with new people, he also knows commands like “sit” & he only pulls on leash if he sees a squirrel 😊 He had a STELLAR safer too! .☺
MISTER, ID #52176, @ 2 Yrs. Old, 50 lbs.
#Manhattan ACC, Medium Mixed Breed, Brown, Unaltered Male
Owner Surrender Reason: No time/space to care
Shelter Assessment Rating: LEVEL 2 (see bottom of post for new rating system)
Medical Behavior Rating: 1. Green
OWNER SURRENDER NOTES – BASIC INFO: He previously lived with 1 adult & 1 child. Around strangers, Mister is friendly but may be shy at first. He will play gently with adults. Mister lived with a 6 year old for the past 3 months. Around the child, he is reportedly respectful, tolerant, quiet, & playful. He will play gently with the child & play chase outside. Mister appears to be #dog reactive towards larger #dogs . Sometimes he is not bothered by other dogs, & sometimes he may whine, growl, bark, or lunge. The owner was not sure what causes the difference
AT RISK :behavioral reasons. While Mister has not shown concerns during interactions with people, Mister has exhibited worsening #dog reactivity in the ACC & will need behavior modification in this regard. Mister would be best placed into a SINGLE animal home & with an #adopter that is able to manage Mister's dog reactivity with reward based training. Medically, Mister has a Cherry Eye. .
