BILBO DOGGINS – 19402
Safe - 2-3-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Bilbo Doggins. My animal id is #19402. I am a male chocolate dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 28-Jan-2018.
Bilbo Doggins is at risk for behavior reasons. Bilbo Doggins has a low threshold for arousal, potentially tipping towards aggression, and also shows signs of resource guarding. For these reasons, we are seeking placement only with a New Hope partner who can further assess these behaviors. Medically, we have no concerns for Bilbo Doggins, who presents as a healthy dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Bilbo Doggins is ready to go on an adventure. The more epic, the better! He’ll tag along wherever you want to roam, and is always so happy to make new friends, both human and canine, indoors or out. Socializing, long walks and lingering sniff sessions are what this hunky hero lives for, and while he does pull enthusiastically on leash, he also responds well to correction and trundles along happily in a harness, immediately taking care of all his business once we hit the street. He greets passing dogs of any size with relaxed manners and has enjoyed his playdates with four-legged lady friends in the yard, too. Bilbo’s super chill when off leash, and apart from a few short breaks to play, he’s content to wander around the yard exploring with his nose, and even licks a few patches of ice just to see what they taste like. Toys of all kinds (but especially plush) are his other great love. He’ll sit on command to wait for my throw, run to fetch, then walk around with his prize in his mouth, dropping it when he spots something more exciting so I can pick up and toss again. Posing indoors is not Bilbo’s thing, yet despite vocal protests, he never turns his frustration on the photographer and really does try his best to sit still and look pretty, succeeding brilliantly on the second task, if not the first! In his den, he’s tail-waggingly thrilled when visitors stop by, and content to indulge in gentle, blissed-out chew sessions with his toys the rest of the time. If you’re having a bad day, I guarantee the sight of a sleepy-eyed Bilbo lounging on his bed while munching a plushie in slow motion is sure to bring a smile back to your face. If your family is all grown up, dog-savvy, outdoorsy and able to provide this happy chappy with the space, toys and exercise he needs (doggie siblings are a bonus!), then Bilbo’s ready to embark on the journey home as soon as you are. Ask for him by name at our Manhattan Care Center and get set for the adventure of a lifetime!
