AEROSMITH – 17604
Safe - 1-18-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Aerosmith. My animal id is #17604. I am a desexed male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 03-Jan-2018.
Aerosmith is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, due to high energy levels and a tendency to be mouthy and grabby during interactions, we suggest Aerosmith would be best suited to an adult only home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Aerosmith is a one man band! He runs, he plays, he hops, he chases balls and toys, gets the zoomies, never stops wagging his tail and loves to run around with a toy in his mouth. He doesn’t need backup — he’s got all the moves! Play, play, play–that’s his motto! He has what staff jokingly refers to as his “off button”, an imaginary spot on his side, which, when you start rubbing it, stops him in his tracks to give you plenty of time to keep massaging him. He’s even been known to slide down for a belly rub! But toys and balls rule the day, and Aerosmith is happiest chasing them down and bouncing around with something in his mouth. He’s a gorgeous puppy, his coat gleams, his weight is perfect and he’s friendly and social, perhaps a bit too much as he can be mouthy in his excitement over…well, everything. He loved his first time in playgroup enjoying some running play with females. Aerosmith is a puppy, so some training will be needed to teach him appropriate behavior when he gets excited. He’s a big personality, looking for his big personality human for a lifetime of love, fun and exercise. Couch potatoes need not apply. Come meet him and be his wingman. He’s waiting.
