Many people love cream cheese and I certainly hope that our very own Cream Cheese will be a hit too. Cream Cheese was found with his housemate Teddy roaming free in an apartment building. Who knows, may be their family was evicted…?They both have been so nicely cared for, are in great shape and perfectly dressed. Cream Cheese got up immediately when he saw me at his door. His tail was low wagging and he was surely ready for his walk. He is the perfect guy for me.. Strolling at a nice pace around the block, respecting pigeons and other dogs alike, doing his business outside his kennel…Sounds like a great pet to me…Free in a pen, he sniffs a lot his new territory. Many dogs have been playing on that grass….I wonder what all those scents are telling him. His tail wags+++. Although a bit aloof at the beginning of our time together, Cream Cheese’s face begun to un-wrinkle and a smile appeared. He even went after a ball…briefly. He accepted petting and looked gently at me……It’ s tough to find oneself homeless and an orphan..and at the ripe age of 9…Well, Cream Cheese is a good guy, in great shape, with good manners, friendly and as we can observe in our doggy playgroups, comfortable with his peers…He certainly could have his second chance around to be once again, a beloved and well cared for family dog.. There is a match out there for everyone!! Meet Cream Cheese at the Manhattan Care Center and make him your very loving and loyal companion...
A volunteer adds: Cream Cheese was a bit lost when I first met him, although he gave me a big smile and a tail wag at the end of our encounter. Since then, he has made a huge turnaround, revealing himself to be a fantastic runner and ball player. Who would have thought? Yes, he is 9 years old, but acts like a young man, so spry and energetic although never hyper. He still has an eye for the ladies and would not mind having 6 year old June as his new girlfriend…romance at Manhattan ACC!!! Cream Cheese is very respectful of his peers in playgroup and in a nutshell seems to be a wonderful pet to have at one’s side. Cream Cheese is all ready to be yours, your fun and loyal companion. Come and meet him soon.
A volunteer wrote: My name is Cream Cheese, and I’m a 9 year old guy. My human friends says that I live up to the true definition of a gentleman, which I think is sure nice of them to say! I love seeing my human friends and spending with them. I take treats very politely and walk very well on a leash. I really, really love checking out all the snow we just had–can you believe all that white stuff? It’s the best! I hope you will consider coming to meet me so I can be your new best fur friend!
On intake, Cream Cheese would not walk out of the crate on his own. Once leashed, counselor gave a little tug and he came out. His tail began to wag and he allowed counselor to pet his head and back. He sat nicely when asked and counselor offered him a cookie. He gently took the cookie from the counselor and ate it. While sitting, counselor collared and walked Cream Cheese over for pictures. He sat nicely for pictures but kept getting up to approach counselor with camera but would sit back down when asked. His tail low-wagged the whole time.

Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
Summary: Cream Cheese displayed no concerning behaviors on his assessment.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
3/7: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Cream Cheese is tolerant when approached and offers a small wag. Otherwise, he keeps to himself.
3/8: Cream Cheese mostly keeps to himself in a group of male and female dogs. He is tolerant of polite greeting. Cream Cheese becomes tense and avoids when introduced to another dog from the same household (A1105444 Teddy).
During his initial medical exam, Cream Cheese was tense.
We have no history on Cream Cheese so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. At the care center, he displays a medium activity level.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
