BANDO – 11549
Safe - 11-15-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Rebound Hounds Please honor your pledges: http://www.reboundhounds.org/donate.html
Hello, my name is Bando. My animal id is #11549. I am a male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 03-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow (nycha).
Bando is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex which is contagious to other dogs. Bando will likely require in home care with a course of antibiotics. Bando should go to an adult only home that is prepared to manage possible resource guarding and high energy.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Beautiful Bando has been a family dog since puppyhood.His life was lived in playful harmony with two human siblings and a bevy of four-legged pals at the dog park. Days were filled by playing with squeaky toys and enjoying games of fetch. While he was anxious when his folks weren’t home and sometimes made toys out of whatever he could find, Bando was well behaved enough that he no longer needed to be crated. Walks happened 3-4 times each day, brushing (which he enjoys) and baths (which he tolerates) were regular, tasty food was plentiful, and life was good. He even learned how to ‘sit’ and ‘stay’ along the way. Sadly, due to housing issues, Bando finds himself alone in a strange land and unsurprisingly, it’s not an easy transition for this good-natured guy. Described as friendly, affectionate, playful, independent, confident and excitable by his former family, he’s clearly an energetic and well-rounded pet in his natural element, but as of this writing, still a bit shy of all the new people he’s meeting at the Care Center. Bando really loves going outside and comes to the front of his den to greet me before heading off to the park with his head and tail held high, a regal King keen to survey his new kingdom. He walks well on leash, pulling to greet other pups, and takes care of all his business along the way, too. In playgroup, Bando was polite and friendly and, as we’ve been told, he’s always been very tolerant and playful at the dog park. So a home with some canine siblings would suit him just fine. This uniquely gorgeous boy has so much to offer an active family, and he’d welcome the chance to show you just what a prize pet he can be.

Another volunteer writes: It’s hard to miss this handsome blue-eyed fellow in his kennel, patiently waiting for a walk. He needs to go potty and takes care of his business the moment we’re out the door, and it’s off to the park. He pulls on leash so a harness will help, and after a short walk we’re in the backyard. Bando has been lovingly cared for and it shows, his coat gleams, his nails are trimmed and his weight is perfect for his size. When a staff member he knows came outside, Bando’s tail waved in happiness as he ran to the fence to say hello. After a short getting-to-know-you warm up period, Bando decided I’m friend material, and he hopped up on the bench to sit beside me, tail wagging and giving me some kisses. Bando kisses–the best! He loves to chase a ball, but hasn’t learned retrieve yet, so his new family can teach him. Tail waggy, playful from time to time, affectionate when he’s ready, and absolutely stunning all the time, Bando will need a bit of time to get over the loss of his old family and fall hopelessly in love with his new one. He’s well on his way and adjusting to this new and temporary place pretty well, so the adjustment to a new family will be a cake walk with all proper procedures.
