ONYX – 17935
RTO SAFE 01/16/18
Hello, my name is Onyx. My animal id is #17935. I am a male black brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 7 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 09-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Onyx is at risk due to behavior, Experience determination. We recommend Onyx go to a home prepared to teach basic manners and impulse control due to concerning behaviors in the care center. Onyx has displayed extreme dog reactivity. There are no medical concerns for Onyx at this time.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Elegant and lanky in his gorgeous, shining brindle (think dark chocolate marble cake) coat, Onyx is ready to come out and play. And go potty. Surrendered due landlord issues, Onyx joins us with the resume of a loving family dog who lived with older children, is friendly to all, doesn’t guard his stuff, is “very” housetrained when walked regularly, likes to be brushed and be held but doesn’t like baths. Onyx loved chasing a ball off leash, but as it was crusted with ice, picking it up to bring it back for another throw was not his favorite thing to do. If he could speak, he’d probably want to know what I could do to make the ice disappear! Giving me a quick woof if I wasn’t fast enough with my throw, he’s poetry in motion as he runs after the ball, even when he slips on the wet surface. Oh Onyx, the sun will shine soon. Up on the bench for some hugs and kisses, Onyx is a non stop tail wagger, ready for some lively entertainment and good hugs. I loved this telling comment from his former owner, “Onyx can’t be walked off leash because he will run across the street to greet people”. What a super friendly guy, everyone needs to be his friend! Lots of hugs, lots of playtime, and lots of love is what makes Onyx a happy dog. It should be an easy give, so ask to meet him today.
