CHAMP – 15507
Safe - 12-12-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Champ. My animal id is #15507. I am a male brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 06-Dec-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- no time for animal.
Champ is at risk for behavioral reasons. Champ is easily aroused and his behavior tends to escalate quickly. Medically, we have no concerns for Champ who presents as a healthy dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: What do you do when a 79 lb dog wants to sit on your lap and give you a hug? You figure out how to make it work! Gorgeous Champ must have been a Yorkie in another life, as he thinks nothing of walking across your lap, hunkering down for a hug, paws on shoulders, and then turning around for a butt scratch, yes please! He’s big and strong, pulls on the leash, thinks squirrels are fun to chase, and birds fun to watch fly. Off leash, he’s a hunk of love, tail wagging, toy playing, smiling dog. Surrendered by his family as they no longer had time to care for him, we’re told he’s interacted with kids and allows them to pet him, has interacted with both small and large dogs and will play but can be pushy, (he’s been playful with a female in his first group, offering appropriate correction if needed), knows several commands (he showed off his ‘sit’ and ‘paw’), is housetrained, doesn’t guard his things, and can sometimes be aggressive toward strangers. We’re all strangers here and so far, Champ has been nothing but fun and friendly, wagging his tail at everyone, but it’s certainly something to be mindful of. Champ is a big dog both in stature and personality; he’s not for the faint of heart. He needs a person as big as he is to provide structure, guidance and love. He’s young, with a lifetime of love in front of him. He’s hoping to meet his soulmate today.
