Still a baby, Kano has the cutest face on a puppy body he doesn’t quite know what to do with! He reminds me of a giant dachshund, a short, plump little body with a funny little flat head. When taking him out of his kennel he just can’t wait to give me a hug! We make it outside and every step I take he’s practically velcroed to my foot, his head bumping into my knee with every step, he looks up at me with a silly grin and unyielding gratitude. Kano is the epitome of the term ‘Velcro-dog’, along with a heaping dose of sillyness thrown in to match. He’s behind me, he’s in front of me, he’s under me, yes Kano VERY much enjoys and purposefully ducks in between your legs, looking up, proud and happy to be with you. I not once felt a tug on the leash, in fact I almost wish I had, perhaps someone taught Kano or maybe it’s all him, but he heels like a pro, perhaps a little too well. I knew there was the risk, yet we made it all the way too the park before it happened, I stepped on his poor little paw. I bent down horrified, but he responded by apologizing to me, a huge hug and a sloppy kiss. Puppy Kano came from a family home, kids and all the love he could get, all he desires is to make you, the all-awesome human happy. His previous family got the sniffles supposedly from him, but Kano holds no grudges. Give Kano a chance and you will instantly become attached at the hip, literally, and he awaits your visit at the Manhattan Care Center.
Another volunteer writes: Ask Kano where he loves to be and he’ll tell you between your legs, looking up at you adoringly while you scratch under his chin. It’s true! He even tries to walk between your legs on leash, and we volunteers have laughingly dubbed a walk with Kano as the “Kano shuffle”. Surrendered to our care when the child in the family developed allergies, we’re told that he played gently with his child even letting the baby lie on top of him. He also lived and played gently with an older Yorkie, and had play dates with male pit bulls. Kano likes meeting new people but can be a bit nervous at first, is all puppy when he plays, doesn’t guard his ‘stuff’ and waits for his person to snap his fingers before eating. Left loose in the house all day he’s well behaved, housebroken and will use a wee wee pad if left alone for more than 8 hours, knows ‘sit’, ‘stay’ ‘come’, ‘wait’, and ‘give paw’, goes into his crate at night to sleep and loves to play basketball! Kano is a snuggly dream, happiest cradled in my arms for hugs and kisses, enjoyed some treats after posing like a pro for some pictures, wags his tail at everyone and everything, romps in play group, and greets everyone as if they’re his long lost best friend. Kano is a smart, fun, affectionate little dude hoping to find a new family to love forever. All puppy playful and energetic and ready to make you the center of his universe, Kano is hoping you’ll meet him today.

BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE

uriniate slightly. He was allowed the counselor to pet, scan for
microchip, collar, and photograph. He was nervous to go into the
kennel at first but after coaxing went in

During intake, Kano approached the admissions counselor with low body, slightly urinating, allowing all handling.He walked very close to handler during his relief walk, weaving in between legs.Kano allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, fast wagging tail. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, open mouth pant, body soft.Kano followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, a bit distracted, open mouth pant. He pulled his paw back quickly on both attempts. Kano showed no interest in Toy, though this may be due to environment as owner reports he enjoys chewing on his chew toys/bones, and will run around and play when outside. His favorite game is to play basketball with his owner, running around the court and chasing the ball while his owner dribbles the ball. When off leash with other dogs, Kano initially ignores the helper dog and approaches the human handler to seek attention. Eventually, he approaches and sniffs the helper dog- then postures to mount. The Behavior Team feels Kano would do best with an Average adopter. He may benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of daily walks, runs, exercise, and play as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his high energy and enthusiasm. He may benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners.
