TO BE KILLED 11/20/2018
Neglected Walker lived with 3 kids. Is said to be friendly, playful , outgoing. His owner had him for 3 yrs & never once bothered to take him to a vet. Nor has he ever had his nails trimmed. And now his former family just can't be bothered at all. And dumped him in a scary place & just forgot about him. Now the ACC wants him gone as well...but this time for good..
I am a male gray dog at the #Brooklyn
ACC. The shelter thinks I am about 4 years old.
I came into the #shelter
as a owner surrender on 14-Nov-2018, with the surrender reason stated as animal behaviour - too active.
AT RISK due to behavior concerns; Due to the behavior observed in the ACC combined with his known #history
of biting someone when startled, we believe Walker may be best set up to succeed if placed : EXPERIENCED rescue partner who can reassess his behavior in a more stable home environment where he can first decompress. Walker is otherwise Healthy
Weight: 70 lbs
DVM Intake Exam
Microchip noted on Intake?n
History :o surrender. o says appetite declining unless o eats with him. good musculature but ribs are showing. ate wet food & treats.
Observed Behavior -allows exam, wary of examiner. once muzzled would thrash but no growling etc
No bite history in his bio...😕 .

Behavior History & Assessment
