Bunz aka Clutch
Hello, my name is Bunz aka Clutch. My animal id is #18979 (ALT ID – A1098715). I am a desexed male chocolate dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 23-Jan-2018.
Bunz is at risk for behavior reasons. Due to quick escalation to biting and attempting to bite other dogs, we are seeking placement only with a New Hope partner, and we recommended Bunz be the only resident dog in a future home. With people, Bunz is an enthusiastic and social dog. Medically, Bunz is a little overweight, but this aside, we currently have no medical concerns for Bunz, who presents as a healthy dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes:3 year-old Manhattan ACC resident Bunz is nothing but smiles this Monday. So really, what’s your excuse? You don’t have to be Sir Mix-a-lot to appreciate this special stunner. This lovable chocolate walrus is bursting with life, wiggles, and wags, and bound to make anyone loose hold of their heart. Note: there’s no itty-bitty waist here. Bunz is a bodacious boy at roughly 75 pounds, and while that’s certainly just more to love it also means he pulls quite a bit on leash. But hey that’s OK. You’ve been doing side-bends and sit-ups (and hopefully a few bicep curls), so as an active, experienced, strong owner – yeah. You got this. Now hopefully you’ve brought a toy (or two) for Bunz because that’s one fast track to our big lad’s heart. During our time together it’s a pink alligator stuffy that first catches his eye and steals his affection. But I’m happy to wait my turn. Now since his love of toys runs so very deep Bunz does have a tendency to guard them. And while he’s been observed to give appropriate warning, we would always recommend “trading up” when removing a toy from Bunz and no tiny fingers or toes please! Once Bunz and pink alligator stuffy wrap up their time together (RIP, pink alligator stuffy) Bunz is all eyes and velvety ears on me. And when he climbs up to my lap and settles in for a long, thorough butt rub, I’m utterly bewitched by his wiggly ways and that wide, bright shining smile. Bunz would do best with an experienced and active owner without young children. He has shown reactivity towards other dogs at the shelter so will also prefer to be the only canine apple of your eye.
