FULHENZIO – 18969
Safe - 1-30-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Fulhenzio. My animal id is #18969. I am a male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 22-Jan-2018.
Fulhenzio is at risk for behavior reasons. The shelter environment is a particularly difficult one for Felhenzio, who is becoming more dog reactive with each day here. At the care center, Fulhenzio has been observed to react to other dogs on leash, lunging towards them, barking and growling. Once out of the kennel and off lead, Fulhenzio demonstrates good sociability with other dogs. We recommend placement within a dog experienced home, one that can work with him to properly assess and address these issues. Medically, we have no concern for Fulhenzio, who presents as a healthy dog.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A staff member writes: Fulhenzio’s big brown eyes and smiling face will surely catch your eye right away! Once you stop in front of his kennel the real show starts, with his wiggly body and endlessly wagging tail, you can tell what he wants more than anything in the world is to take a walk with you. Once we get outside he calms right down, explores the yard and leans all the way in to my legs for petting and rubs. At first he doesn’t seem to have much interest in the toys, but with some encouragement he plays and plays, running back and forth and shaking them all around. While he will need some help learning polite leash manners, this smart cookie already knows to sit for treats and waits to have his leash replaced to go back into his kennel, where he flops down on his bed and waits to wiggle and wag right into your heart.
