His favorite thing to do is to be pet - former owner A friendly affectionate playful shy & mellow MISTER 50 16s 8l Preeious e Mantdttan AC INTAKE DATE – 192019 “His favorite thing to do is to be pet” -- Former owner MISTER is wondering if he will EVER find a family that stays Given to his most recent owner by someone who found him only 3 months earlier in an empty apartment this poor boy has been bounced around His latest owner gave him up for NO TIME! Friendly affectionate playful shy and so mellow he is most comfortable crawling into your lap for cuddles and comfort Who can blame Mister? He has had a cuddle deficit and he just wants to know that his life matters that his happiness matters Volunteers adore him and that’s no surprise and he loves them right back He has “cherry eye” a condition more annoying than painful but it can easily be remedied with surgery Gentle with children shyly friendly with new people he also knows commands like “sit” and he only pulls on leash if he sees a squirrel 😊 He had a stellar safer too! So please message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmailcom for assistance fostering or adopting her MISTER ID # 52176 @ 2 Yrs Old 50 lbs Manhattan ACC Medium Mixed Breed Brown Unaltered Male Owner Surrender Reason No time Shelter Assessment Rating LEVEL 2 see bottom of post for new rating system Medical Behavior Rating 1 Green OWNERR SURRENDER NOTES – BASIC INFORMATION Mister was surrendered to our facilities due to the owner not having enough time or space to provide proper care for Mister They had been given Mister by someone who had originally found him in an empty apartment about 3 months ago He is a red brown medium mixed breed male dog reported to be around 2 years old He previously lived with 1 adult and 1 child Around strangers Mister is friendly but may be shy at first He will play gently with adults Mister lived with a 6 year old for the past 3 months Around the child he is reportedly respectful tolerant quiet and playful He will play gently with the child and play chase outside Mister appears to be dog reactive towards larger dogs Sometimes he is not bothered by other dogs and sometimes he may whine growl bark or lunge The owner was not sure what causes the differences in types of reactions or what his background around dogs was prior to owning him Mister has not been around cats but does not seem to react when he is walked outside and sees stray cats Mister does not have any resource guarding behaviors though the owner was unable to ever try to take a treat away from him because he would eat them so quickly He is not bothered when his food or toys are touched and will also drop a toy on command For the past three months Mister did not attempt to bite anyone or any other animal He is not housetrained and has a medium activity level When Mister was originally given to his most recent owner he had wounds of an unknown origin on his face and muzzle They healed on their own Other Notes Mister will use the bathroom indoors both urinating and defecating He is also frightened of loud noises such as thunder or fireworks He will shake He is not bothered if pushed or pulled off of furniture if disturbed while sleeping or resting when given a bath or when a stranger approaches the owner or family He enjoys being brushed He will grumble or growl if he hears someone in the hallway The owner did not try to trim his nails For a New Family to Know Mister is described as being friendly affectionate playful shy and mellow When you are home he usually sleeps and may lay on his bed He liked to play with the owner's son's hard plastic toys He would play chase when the son would run around He has been kept indoors mostly He would sleep in a variety of places including on the dog bed in the living room and at the foot of the owner's bed He ate a variety of types of wet and dry food The owner would fill the bowl twice a day and he would snack on the food throughout the day He is not house trained and will urinate and defecate indoors He will attempt to cover his feces with something like a blanket He also uses the bathroom on any surface when taken outside When left home alone he is generally well behaved He has never been left alone in a yard or been crate trained He knows the command sit He is used to walks on and off leash as well as running in the park for exercise When walked on leash he pulls lightly and primarily only when he sees a squirrel He has been walked off leash and wanders off a bit but comes back when called His favorite thing to do is be pet INTAKE NOTES – DATE OF INTAKE 192019 Upon intake Mister whined throughout and kept his tail low but wagging He allowed all handling and leaned in for pets and scratches He sat on command and took treats very gently He put his front legs up on
