TO BE KILLED - SEPT. 21, 2019
Sometimes life gives you a second chance, or even two! Not always, but sometimes. It's what you do with those second chances that counts - Dave Wilson
With a gorgeous white coat and big floppy black ears, Pinky is definitely something to talk about. He's absolutely gorgeous with his unique coloring and compact body. Pinky has been surrendered to Manhattan shelter because he had a little problem in his former home. However, other than that single incident, Pinky's family said he has been doing great as a family dog. Needs awesome new family who will love him unconditionally and provide him with the training and patience needed for success.

TO BE KILLED – 9/21/2019
Playful, wiggly social and sweet, BOSTON is a youngster who just wants to be around people. With his adorable mug, his brindle coat, and his eyes that just beg you to “please throw the ball” we can’t just can’t resist him. He is so eager to engage in some games with his friends at the shelter, & though he could benefit from some leash manners, he is both treat and toy driven so some dedication to teaching him “drop it, leave it” and also “down stay” and “place” would help him to redirect his youthful, misdirected enthusiasm in a positive way. These are essential commands for any dog. Putting your pup in a “down stay” allows them the time to decompress, calm down, and learn to relax in place. Boston is just a young kid, and he tries so hard. He truly deserves a chance with an experienced foster or adopter who can provide him the structured, quiet home where he can decompress and learn his “big boy skills.” Due to his jumpiness, he needs a home where there are no children under Age 13.
BOSTON, ID #75521, 3 Yrs. old, 65.8 lbs., Unaltered Male
#Brooklyn ACC, Large Mixed Breed, Brown Brindle / White
I came to the shelter as an ACO Impound, 9/11/2019
SHELTER ASSESSMENT RATING: New Hope Rescue Only
Medical Behavior Rating: 3. Yellow
AT RISK NOTE: Boston rapidly escalates to mouthing toward the handler's forearms and leash and when aroused and his lack of bite inhibition resulted in nipping the handler's leg leaving a bruise. As a result of these observations, as well as his initial fixation and hard barking toward staff when uncomfortable, we feel Boston would be best set up to succeed if placed with an experienced rescue partner ;help manage these behaviors in a stable, home environment and reassess him prior to seeking permanent placement. Boston was diagnosed with CIRDC and Otitis Chronic.
SHELTER ASSESSMENT SUMMARIES
Strength and pulling: Moderate pulling
Reactivity to humans: None
Reactivity to dogs: None
