Rubio

  • ID# 84284

  • 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

Rubio shows some social behavior toward his caretakers at the Care Center but quickly becomes aroused, resorting to growling and leash biting. During his first stay at the care center, Rubio would growl, bark, and move away from handlers when attempting to take his picture. During both stays, Rubio will growl and leash-bite with prolonged interaction. His previous owner describes Rubio as friendly and playful, often jumping up to greet new people. Rubio is reported to growl when in the possession of toys. For these reasons, we recommend Rubio go to a experienced single-pet, adult-only home prepared to work on this arousal and fearfulness using positive reinforcement, reward-based training.

My friends say I have lots of energy and like to play with my leash, so if opposites really do attract then I would probably do best in a calm home where I can be your one and only pup...maybe with lots of toys, exercise and training to keep my mind moving, too. And while I may be handsome, no photos please! I'm a bit camera shy and it takes me some time to warm up to new people.
