HENNESSY – 8105 (ALT ID – A1126189)
Hello, my name is Hennessy. My animal id is #8105. I am a female brown dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks i am about 2 years 3 weeks old.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Behavior determination: Average A volunteer writes: Hennessy is a sweetheart of a dog who was a little bit shy, even aloof, when I first met her. She was a “quiet water”, a little bit of a wall flower. That has changed 180 degrees for the better. Hennessy is still gentle and well mannered, but also lively and playful. We play tag in the yard through two large open pens, and she runs after the ball. She is really cute with her Boxerish face and underbite, a little plump, and wags her tail a lot in anticipation of more fun activities and treats, of course. She poses nicely for pictures and does not kick off a halloween unicorn head piece that I crowned her with for the photo shoot. She is a good smoocher and cuddler, of course, and a really sweet gal to spend time with. Hennessy is really a very good girl. She is fine in playgroups with her peers and meets them properly in the street as well. Hennessy will make a fine companion, a lovely friend to build memories and share your life with. Come and meet her at the Manhattan Care Center. Hennessy is waiting for you.

Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. Dog does not place his/her body between you and the toy. Summary: Hennessy displayed no concerning behaviors on her assessment and was social throughout. Summary (1): 9/22: When introduced off leash to a male greeter dog, Hennessy mostly keeps to herself and avoids interaction. 9/23: Hennessy is tolerant of greeting but mostly keeps to herself. Summary (2): Hennessy has been tolerant of interaction with dogs in the care center, though mostly has kept to herself. Based on these observations, the behavior department feels Hennessy may be most compatible with respectful, non playful dogs at this time. Date of intake: 1-Oct-2017 Summary: Loose body, wagging, allowed all handling Date of initial: 1-Oct-2017 Summary: Playful ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Hennessy so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
