TO BE KILLED 1/18/2019
CARMELO is a gorgeous puppy, barely 11 months old, and full of joy and love for people. He spent all his time during intake trying to jump up on the ACS trying to get a hug, and it didn’t stop there! During his behavior, this soft, social, incredibly affectionate boy just wanted to give jump up hugs and sloppy kisses to the Assessor too! There is nothing more heartwarming than to see puppy who is so innocent and sweet, a puppy whose tail is nothing but a blur as he wilggles and wags for the amusement of his new human friends. There is also nothing as heartbreaking as knowing that his precious life will be cut short simply because his parent seemed to be inexperienced with #dogs and dog training, and never bothered to give little Carmelo a structured home life, or training on calming commands like “down” and “place”, so that Carmelo's enthusiasm and #puppy playfulness could be channeled in a way that would allow him to remain calm in the face of life’s distractions. We are questioning his parent's story as well, because puppy mouthiness can be confused with nippiness. It's important to understand the difference! And that's just one more puppy trait that needs training! Just like human children, a puppy needs guidance. CARMELO is a winning combination of good looks, eagerness to please, and over the top affection. He is GREAT with other dogs too. He just needs the training he never got, so he can be the VERY best #pup he can be and learn big boy skills. Don’t let this precious youngster die.
CARMELO, ID #50714 @ 11 Mos. Old, 54 lbs.
#Brooklyn ACC, Large Mixed Breed, Tri-Color, Neutered Male
I came to the shelter as a Stray, 1/3/2019
Shelter Assessment Rating: New Hope Rescue Only
Intake Behavior Rating: 1. Green
AT RISK MEMO: Though we don't have any history of Carmelo's behavior on his previous Home we do know that he has a bite history and that he is a young, enthusiastic, social #dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him stimulated.
