INTAKE DATE- 6/6/2019
Django - dapper, daring, dazzling handsome hunk – and only 12 months old!
A volunteer writes: “The D may be silent but I'm pretty sure it stands for dapper! Just look at his perfect markings and sunny smile and tell me Django isn't the handsomest hunk you've ever seen? Perhaps it's D for daring, because he makes new friends so easily and bounds into any social situation with absolute confidence that he'll love everyone and be loved by them all in return. Playgroup is Django's favorite and while he enjoys being petted, treated and walked by us humans, this silly boy really comes to life among his peers and would thrive in a home where he has other big, friendly pups to play with. He already knows how to come, sit and get 'up' on command and seems very house trained as well. Django could use a little polish when it comes to leash manners but a harness does the trick and once he's tuckered out he actually walks like a proper gentleman...until he sees a new four-legged friend that is! As they say, a tired dog is a happy dog and dapper, daring, dazzling Django can't wait to find an active family who'll give him a chance to end every day with a well-earned smile.” If you can give this hunky, happy guy a home, you need to MESSAGE our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance.

ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Django so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.

*** NEW NYC ACC RATING SYSTEM ***
Dogs with Level 1 determinations are suitable for the majority of homes. These dogs are not displaying concerning behaviors in shelter, and the owner surrender profile (where available) is positive.
Dogs with Level 2 determinations will be suitable for adopters with some previous dog experience. They will have displayed behavior in the shelter (or have owner reported behavior) that requires some training, or is simply not suitable for an adopter with minimal experience.
Dogs with Level 3 determinations will need to go to homes with experienced adopters, and the ACC strongly suggest that the adopter have prior experience with the challenges described and/or an understanding of the challenge and how to manage it safely in a home environment. In many cases, a trainer will be needed to manage and work on the behaviors safely in a home environment.
