Safe - 11-30-2017 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Lucas. My animal id is #14232. I am a male brown brindle dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 8 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 20-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- landlord won’t allow.
Barney is at risk due to being diagnosed with Canine Upper Respiratory Disease Complex and will likely require home rest and a series of antibiotics for up to 14 days. This is a contagious illness to other dogs. Lucas has also been intermittently rope reactive- jumping, flailing, biting on and thrashing with the rope while being removed from his kennel and while on walks.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Oh Lucas! It shouldn’t be any surprise that his former owner described his energy level as “very high.” Yep! You can say that again. Lucas is an 8 month old puppy (teenager as we call them) through and through. And with that comes a little mouthiness, a little rowdiness and a whole bunch of playfulness! Sure, Lucas needs some leash training, is sans the polishing of an older dog, but what he lacks in obedience he more than makes up for in total and complete goofiness! He will gallop around the yard, running toy to toy making decisions about what to play with next. You can get him to sit before you throw a ball, but he much prefers to bounce on his back legs in unadulterated joy until you release it. He hasn’t mastered the art of fetch and drop quite yet, but given his motivation for food, I doubt it will take long to teach him. Lucas’ former owner also tells us he’s lived with and got along with children and a small dog and is outgoing with strangers. He doesn’t mind being bathed, is crate and housetrained (you go Lucas!) and loves to run. Much like his normal lifestyle, Lucas can be rowdy in playgroup–engaging in chase play, leaping over fellow dogs, and even body slamming on a few occasions. So easy to picture that of Lucas! Lucas is ready for pet parents that can provide him the training, structure and exercise that all puppies need. If that sounds like you, ask to meet him today!
