SARGENT – 18105
Safe - 1-18-2018 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Sargent . My animal id is #18105. I am a male black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 6 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 11-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Sargent is at risk for behavioral reasons. In his kennel, Sargent barks, growls, and lunges at people who approach him. He has also allowed minimal handling from caretakers, and displays strong resource guarding behaviors. Due to behavior, we have not been able to perform a thorough veterinary examination of Sargent, but based on a kennel side examination, he appears to be a healthy dog.
