GIZMO – 18664
Safe - 1-25-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Gizmo. My animal id is #18664. I am a desexed male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 years old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 19-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as other.
Gizmo is at risk for behavior reasons. Gizmo is very nervous in the shelter, and with people and dogs he does not know. Gizmo readily displays distance increasing signals, but with a very slow approach and coaxing, Gizmo has warmed up to select handlers. Medically, we have no concerns for Gizmo, who presents as a healthy dog.
My medical notes are…
