RYE – 18303
Safe - 1-21-2018 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Rye. My animal id is #18303. I am a male black dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 14-Jan-2018.
Rye was placed at risk due to the behavior displayed at the care center and his failure to thrive. Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, as well as Rye’s fearful/high stress level, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the biting and underlying anxiety.
My medical notes are…
