MUELLER – 21000
Safe - 2-26-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges:
Hello, my name is Mueller. My animal id is #21000. I am a male brown brindle dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 17-Feb-2018
Mueller is at risk for both behavioral and medical reasons. Mueller has been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Mueller has also shown deteriorating behavior in the care center, with increased levels of dog reactivity. We suggest that Mueller would be best suited to an Adult Only home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Part playful puppy, part affectionate snugglebug, and 100 percent handsome hunk, Mr. Mueller is a brindle lover’s dream come true! You’ll always find him waiting right at the front of his den, tail wagging mightily and front paws propped on the door, a welcoming smile lighting up his gorgeous face like spring sunshine. He pulls enthusiastically for the street, but walks well in a harness, meeting other dogs with happy enthusiasm and taking care of all his business along the way before turning the charm on full blast once we stop for our photo shoot. At first, Mueller sits politely to gently mouth reward treats from my hand, but once I give him the ‘hug signal’ of patting my chest, he’s all over me in the best way, cuddling, kissing and loving as only an enthusiastic big boy can. We stay like that for a bit, his paws resting almost on my shoulders as I pet him, and he watches the world go by and then he’s off again, snuffly nose to the ground and happy tail reaching for the sky. Mueller aced his behavior assessment with top scores, but his size and jumpy playfulness mean he’d fit best in a home with no little people underfoot, and pet parents who’ll make sure he sticks to his best manners–and is rewarded accordingly, of course! I adore Mueller and you will, too. Ask to meet him at our Manhattan Care Center and come prepared to cuddle!
