FRENCH – 13122
Safe - 12-11-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is French. My animal id is #13122. I am a male chocolate dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 6 years 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 19-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- new baby.
French is at risk due to deteriorating behavior in care center, adult only determination. French is frustrated in kennel and will hard bark and lunge at kennel door. He is no longer responding to additional in kennel enrichment and it is best if he is placed outside of a kennel environment as soon as possible in an adult only home. There are no medical concerns for French at this time.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Bright eyed and bushy tailed, French was woofing in his kennel, letting me know he needed to go out. And did he ever! His former family tells us that French is housetrained, and yup, no doubt about it! Surrendered when a newborn baby joined the family, we’re told that French lived and played with a 2 year old Chihuahua, and 2 female 6 year old cats. He was relaxed around all, but prefers eating in solitude, and would growl if they or a human came near him when he was eating. French didn’t mind baths, or having his nails trimmed, is described as affectionate and energetic, loves to play, is well behaved when left home alone, and loves going for walks. Handsome French was easily leashed, and once off leash in a pen, showed off his sit, gently enjoyed some treats, gave me some stand up hugs, enjoyed some petting as we hung out together, and was clearly happy to be out enjoying the sunny and crisp day. Fun fact: French is bilingual, able to woof in French and English. Kidding, of course. But I’m not kidding about what a fun, playful, affectionate dog French is; I so enjoyed meeting him, and I know you will, too. Ask to meet him today. A volunteer updates: French has become my ‘go to’ dog for a sweet and relaxing time at the end of my day. He’s a willing companion, always happy to see a friend with leash in hand giving him another chance to use the ‘facilities’. He smiles, he waves his luscious tail, and out we go. French loves being off leash, loves toys, loves getting a face massage, and has started to lean in close for cuddles. The more time I spend with him, the more I like him, so you better come adopt him quickly before I spirit him away (I wish). He has a great spirit, a bit independent, but loving and sweet. He’s waiting for you to come make him yours.
