BUTTONS – 7956 (ALT ID – A1125156)
Safe - 11-18-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Buttons. My animal id is #7956. (ALT ID – A1125156) I am a male fawn dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 1 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a data import – incoming on 01-Oct-2017
Buttons 7956 is at risk for behavior concerns (Experience determination). Buttons is a long-stay in the care center and is beginning to show signs of distress from the extended kenneling period. He has been timid but social with his human caretakers throughout his stay, but has recently begun to display increasing levels of anxiety both in and out of kennel. Out of concern for his stress level, we recommend that he move into a stable home environment quickly, and we at this time we recommend adopters with some previous dog experience. There is no noted medical condition for Buttons at this time.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Behavior determination: Experience A volunteer writes: As cute as? You bet! Gorgeous in his blonde coat and sparkling almond eyes, Buttons is up front in his kennel, letting me know a walk would be sooooo good. Energetic and playful, Buttons loves having the run of the backyard pens, scooting after a ball, then a toy, then a ball again. This is so much fun! Tug is also a good game, and when I let him win (shhhh…), he brings the toy back for another round. 2-Buttons, 0-me. Once played out, Buttons is in my lap for some hugs and kisses, and then rolls over for a belly rub. Can we say ‘awwwwww…’? A brief rest recharges his battery, and he’s off to chase a ball again, and then moves away to give it a good chomp. When I try to get a picture of Buttons and his ball, he moves away as if saying, ‘can my ball and I get some privacy, please?’. Buttons is equal parts energetic play and snuggles, and both make him so happy. Fun, friendly and lively, there’s no way to face your day with the glums with Buttons by your side. Remember the game we played as kids, “Button, Button who’s got the Button?” It could be–and should be–YOU! Cute as a button, (I suspect that’s where he got his name from), Buttons is sweet like candy. Perhaps like button candy, colorful dots on a white strip of paper. Each color representative of the different shades of him: yellow reflects his golden coat; blue, for his mild and gentle nature; pink for when he has a burst of playfulness, chasing the tennis ball but not really knowing what to do with it once he gets it. I’m sure he has many more colors on his strip of paper that he hasn’t shared yet. Perhaps he is saving the rest for his special person. Will this person be you?
