Safe - 2-6-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Red Hook Dog Rescue Please honor your pledges: https://www.facebook.com/Red-Hook-Dog-Rescue-102452760768/app/190322544333196/
My name is BELLA. My Animal ID # is A1024677.
I came in the shelter as a OWNER SUR on 01/22/2017 from NY 11218, owner surrender reason stated was PETS CONFL.
MOST RECENT MEDICAL INFORMATION AND WEIGHT
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/22/17 During initial medical exam Bella was friendly ENERGY LEVEL: Bella’s previous owner described her as excitable and having a medium level of energy. In the shelter, Bella pulls hard on leash and is enthusiastic. Bella will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him/her engaged and exercised. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration (It is reported that Bella barks and lunges at small dogs. Positive reinforcement, reward based training is recommended to teach Bella to look at you rather than focusing on barking at dogs around you. Teaching “Look” while walking her on leash and passing dogs is a great way to have her focus on you.)

A volunteer writes:
If I could put Sake in my pocket and skip town with her I would! Pint sized adorable, she’s smart, playful, affectionate, likely housetrained, great on the leash, happy to be with people… and I could go on and on. Playful in dog groups, if other dogs get too much for her she simply walks away and hides under the bench until she’s comfortable again. How smart is she! She’s quiet and playful, respectful, loves toys, posed for pictures, loves getting pet, sits when asked to… all this and only 10 months old! Our behavior team obviously thinks she’s pretty special giving her an average rating meaning she’ll be a good fit in just about any home. If you are ready for a pint size morsel of brindlicious, this little girl is waiting to come home with you. Let’s not make her wait too long!
Another volunteer writes: If this girl was a real Sake, she would be a sweet one! What a cuddly little pup. Snuggles up next to me immediately before we even get off the elevator to go for our walk. Snow is new to this little girl, so exploring it was so much fun. She just looked so adorable in the park sniffing and jumping around. She’s the kind of dog you can’t help just wrap your arms around and get some kisses. She will melt your heart, in this cold weather. Come meet Sake today! She is so sweet I feel she will probably be adopted to a loving home if you wait too long.
