ORION – 18811
Safe - 2-9-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Orion. My animal id is #18811. I am a male white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 2 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 20-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as animal behaviour – aggressive to other animals.
Orion is at risk for behavior reasons. Orion can be nervous and fearful, and prone to resource guarding. He is reported to bark at and chase children. For these reasons, we are seeking placement only with a New Hope partner, and suggest that he be placed in a home without young children. Medically, Orion had a mild ear irritation when he arrived at the care center, which has resolved, and we now have no medical concerns for Orion.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 8.5625 lbs
