WESLEY – 10298
Safe - 11-1-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Wesley. My animal id is #10298. I am a male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 20-Oct-2017.
Wesley 10298 is at risk for behavior concerns (Adult-Only behavior determination). We have no known history of Wesley’s behavior in his previous home. In the care center, he has been hesitant to interact, retreating and avoiding contact when approached. With a slow approach and gentle handling, Wesley allows touch and petting but remains anxious, tense, and trembling; once comfortable with his handler, Wesley begins soliciting attention. However, due to his fear level with novel people we are concerned that he will not thrive in the busy adoptions room. We recommend an adult-only home and adopters who will allow Wesley to warm up to his new home and new family at his own pace. There is no noted medical condition for Wesley at this time.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 13 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 3. Yellow
