A volunteer writes: Huck was the last dog I walked today–and I walked by his cage so many times while he waited patiently, I was amazed he didn’t bark at me once! Just patiently waited, and happily wagged his tail all over the place when he realized it was finally his turn. Huck is an energetic young man who can sit for treats (and take them very gently), seems housetrained, and loves people. His coloring and shape make me think he’s a boxer mix, and that typical boxer love for people is undeniable. Although Huck isn’t a big fan of other dogs, his snuggle quotient with people is very high. 🙂 This guy loves attention and can’t wait to find his special person! Please come and seem him at the Brooklyn ACC today.

Bruce was brought in as a stray. The finder found him tied to a pole on the street, the brought Bruce home overnight then brought him to the shelter. As per the finder Bruce was fed Cheerios when in her care and when left alone he would knock household items over and whimpers until someone interacts with him. No other information could be provided during intake.
During intake Bruce was relaxed with loss body. Bruce would jump up and try to lick the handler. Bruce allowed to be scanned (negative), collared, pictured, and placed in a dog kennel.
Bruce came into our center after a member of the public found him tied to a pole and kept him overnight. Finder states Bruce knocked over household items and whimpered if left alone, though this may be due to environment. During intake, Bruce was relaxed with loose body, jumped up to attempt to lick the handler. He allowed all handling and was easily placed in his kennel. Bruce pulled on leash for his relief walk. He was friendly and sociable upon entering SAFER assessment room, jumping up lightly/affectionately. Bruce allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, eyes averted, relaxed. He stood still during Sensitivity item, ears back, body soft. Bruce ran playfully along during Tag game, jumping and running, settled easily at end. He pulled his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Bruce showed no interest in Toy. Off leash with other dogs, When Bruce approaches the female greeter at the gate he stiffens and begins growling; as he is being walked away he begins lunging and barking, so he is muzzled. Once introduced he stands next to the female dog as she sniffs him, stiff, body forward and lip licking; she walks away and he does not follow. The Behavior Team feels Bruce would do well with an Average adopter. He would benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners as well as crate training for when home along. Bruce may benefit from being the only resident dog.
