KINGSLEY – 9760
Safe - 11-19-2017 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Kingsley. My animal id is #9760. I am a male white dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 months old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 14-Oct-2017.
Kingsley is being placed at risk for behavior. Over the past few days Kingsley has been showing signs of behavioral deterioration. Today Kingsley displayed extreme signs of distress and is in danger of causing harm to himself. He is biting and tearing at the kennel walls and the opening of his transfer door. This behavior is a direct effect of being housed in a shelter environment for a month.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Kingsley is such a far cry from the scaredy cat he was when he first arrived that if it weren’t for his Phantom of the Opera mask and wonky eye I might not even recognize him! This guy is a DELIGHT and I always make a point to spend time with him when I’m at the shelter. He is always eager to go out and about, not only because he seems very housebroken, but because he has loads of exploring to catch up on. He pulls hard on a regular leash, but walks very nicely on a front clip harness. He’s super curious and does adorable things like get his face stuck in a coffee cup discarded on the sidewalk and meticulously drink water from a leaky fire hydrant. Still, Kingsley can be cautious and unsure of certain things and might bark at that suspicious looking dumpster or go on alert if there’s lots of commotion. He can be reactive to dogs on leash, but has done well with others off leash in our playgroups. When he’s at ease Kinglsey is so much fun and it’s like the whole world is just him and his person. He loves toys and is quick to sprawl out with them, will eagerly do the kangaroo hop (and eventually sit) for treats, wags his tail a mile a minute, and takes little breaks to plant himself himself in my lap and graciously lick my hands. He might have some quirks, but he is an absolute sweetheart…please come meet him at Brooklyn ACC and see if he’d fit in your world!
