ENIKO – 15309 (ALT ID A1109315)
Safe - 12-16-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Eniko. My animal id is #15309. I am a desexed male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 2 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 03-Dec-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow (nycha).
Eniko is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. We suggest that Eniko would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: I don’t think I’ve ever met a dog with more unique markings than this gorgeous guy. His chest has brown and black polka dots, his face a mask of caramel, and his wide smile and fun loving eyes speak of a good time to come. Eniko is very housetrained, and although quiet in his kennel, once out with me it was playtime, hug time, kiss time, and more play time. Eniko chases a toy and brings it over, inviting me to play tug. I just love when dogs do that! Every time I let him win the game, he brings it back for another game. Joining me on the bench for lots of kisses and petting, when I stopped petting him he nuzzles me with his hand to carry on. I love that he loves to be petted and knows how to ask for it. Surrendered due to landlord issues, Eniko comes with a stunning resume which states that he’s relaxed, respectful and plays exuberantly with kids, chases cats (OK, no one is perfect), doesn’t guard his food, is friendly with strangers, is housetrained, knows some commands (sit, come, lay down), doesn’t mind baths, and gives a hello bark when the doorbell rings. Eniko pulls on leash, so a harness may help, and he likes making birds in our path fly. Eniko is a big puppy, absolutely stunning, friendly and lively with a big personality who is hoping to find a new family to love and who will love him to the moon and back, forever.

Eniko is friendly and outgoing towards strangers and usually approaches for a good sniff and jump. He’s spent time around children ages 3 and 7 and is relaxed and playful with them. He plays both exuberantly and gently with adults and children and enjoys sniffing other dogs on the street. His tail is always wagging but he has yet to actually play with another dog. He’s never spent time around cats so it’s unknown how he would react but he has never bitten another animal or human.
Eniko is nervous during loud noises and usually goes to his owner. His owner has yet to take away his food bowl so it’s unknown how he would react but he has growled when she tried taking away a treat, never snapping or doing anything else when taken away. When it’s a toy being taken away, Eniko thinks his mom is trying to play and becomes friendly. His owner tells him to “get down” when on her bed and he usually will jump down. His owner hasn’t held him from something he wants so it’s unknown how he would react but he isn’t bothered when awoken from his slumber and will get up to play. Eniko tolerates baths and having his nails trimmed and enjoys a good brushing. He barks when someone unfamiliar approaches his home but becomes friendly as soon as they step in the door. He’s friendly with any unfamiliar person that approaches his humans.
Eniko is friendly, affectionate, playful, and excitable. He loves attention and has a high activity level being a puppy. When he’s ready to play, Eniko loves tugging on rope, playing fetch with balls (but won’t always release), and chewing up stuffed animals. His owner loves how he knows when he’s done something wrong and how he chases birds outside. When his owner is home, he typically follows her around and will sleep on her bed or on his blanket in her room or her daughter’s room. He’s kept mostly indoors and is house-trained as of a few weeks ago! He is off weewee pads and will now go outside mostly on grass and dirt with the occasional cement use. He’s well-behaved when left home alone and will just destroy his stuffed toys. He’s crate-trained and knows sit and come. Eniko enjoys brisk walks on leash and will pull lightly. He eats Blue Buffalo dry and wet, about 2 cups dry with 1 can wet in the morning and 1 1/2 cups dry and 1/2 can wet at night. He loves chicken.
