A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I found Butch with a crowd of admirers in front of his door, all phones out, videotaping him and asking him to sit. Yes, Butch sits without treats, just on command. He so enjoyed the company. Time to go out…Butch is leashed in no time and ready for his walk around the block. He does pull some but nothing I can not manage. He so would love to meet other dogs. His tail his wagging, can we, can we..? You had your chance at playgroup with your friends this morning. Tomorrow is another day. Butch is a young adult very close to puppy hood. He is sociable, super friendly, likes caresses, does not mind to be outfitted with a scarf and absolutely loves treats for which he will show endless sits. He did not play ball with me but Butch is so eager to please that I am sure he will learn in no time. Butch is a very good looking little guy, very medium size, well made and well dressed who will make an amazing forever best friend once he knows he will be loved again…Come and meet Butch at the Manhattan Care Center.

Date of intake: 24-Jan-2018
Summary: Butch was social.
Date of initial: 24-Jan-2018
Summary: Butch allowed handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Butch so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: Butch has been highly social with handlers throughout his stay at the care center. He seeks attention from volunteers and staff constantly and solicits petting and interaction. He displays typical puppy behaviors and enjoys time outside of his kennel.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
Potential challenges: Basic manners/poor impulse control
Potential challenges comments: Basic manners/poor impulse control: Butch jumps up a lot on people. It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute any frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended.
