Patrick

  • ID# 78669

  • Dog

  • Manhattan Animal Care Center

Due to the need for extensive behavior modification, this animal is only available for foster/adoption through one of ACC's New Hope Partners. Please read the below information thoroughly about this dog and if you are interested in fostering or adopting, please fill out the pre-screener form. Do not click the "Adopt Me" button on this webpage. This animal is not directly available for adoption through ACC and is only available by completing the pre-screener form. Adoption inquiries sent directly to ACC will not receive a response.

Pre-Screener Form

Patrick was surrendered to the care center due to a bite incident with the four month old kitten in his previous home. Patrick bit the cat, resulting in death. He has also broken out of his collar before and bit another dog, unable to be interrupted until someone poured water on the two dogs. He is reported to be reactive to other dogs he sees while walking on leash, lunging towards them and barking. This behavior has also been observed at the care center. Patrick is otherwise reported to be friendly with people and have a high level of energy, and can sometimes get into items in the home when left alone unsupervised. During his stay at the care center, he also displays social behavior towards handlers, allowing petting and occasionally jumping up on them. Patrick readily engages in cue training and has learned to sit, lay down, hand target and "leave it." Due to the severity of Patrick's previous bite incidents, we feel he would best succeed in a single pet home and would benefit from wearing a muzzle in public due to the safety risk he poses around other dogs. A future adopter should also be prepared to provide Patrick with daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised and positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
