****TO BE KILLED 7/21/18*
Strudel seems to be thankful for the attention he is being shown now, to be petted and to be loved by the volunteers. Please share this lovely soul - Strudel deserves to be loved and cared for-as it should be- and to have a happy future ahead
A volunteer writes: Delicious Strudel lives up to his name.. He's sweet, full of flavor, perfect for entertaining a crowd or savoring as a special treat all by yourself, & while his former life was clearly no bed of roses, on the inside he's just a silly, affectionate puppy wanting nothing more than to love & be loved in return. Strudel acts like he's never seen a toy before & doing anything on command is a foreign concept but he's eager to please and walks very nicely on leash, takes care of his business outdoors & comes when called for jumpy hugs & butt rubs.
. I am a male #blackdog #Manhattan
ACC The shelter thinks I am about 5 years old.
I came into the shelter as a agency on 14-Jul-2018. AT RISK for behavioral concerns. He has shown decreased tolerance to being in the shelter environment. Strudel has had some interactions in playgroup with other dogs that has shown he should be adopted into a home with no other dogs and with experienced dog owners. Presently Strudel is a little underweight but there are no other medical concerns
Date of intake:: 7/14/2018
Spay/Neuter status:: No
Means of surrender STRAY, no known history
Date of assessment:: 7/15/2018
Look:: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor's hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity:: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag:: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body SOFT.
Toy:: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog may smell or lick, then turns away.
Summary:: Strudel was soft and allowed all handling without issue.
Summary:: Due to conflicting behavior observed toward dogs in the acc (playful during initial interaction, later attempts to bite), a single dog residence is recommended for Strudel pending follow up outside of the shelter environment. 💖💖
