A volunteer writes: Everyone knows ‘Grumpy Cat’ but have you met Grumpy dog? Andy’s perpetual pouty mouth makes him look like he’s always cranky or having a bad day! And Andy does have a few things to be grouchy about…He was originally adopted from us over two years ago but recently found himself landed back at our care center due to “personal problems” of the owner. Upon arrival, he was infested with lice, had patches of missing fur, especially on his feet, and was a few pounds lighter than his first visit. But the irony of Grumpy Dog—err Andy, is that he’s the farthest thing from grumpy! Despite his predicament, Andy is one of the happiest, fun-loving guys around. Due to his zest for life and adventure, Andy sometimes pulls on the leash, but it seems he’s likely housetrained, and is always eager to relieve himself outside. In the yard, he loves to play with toys, but is just as likely to be found sitting on the bench with his volunteer friends. His previous owner indicates that he is playful towards other dogs that he sees on walks and has lived with a teenager. Andy enjoys taking baths and even is friendly when he meets new people! Andy is the type of dog that will let you dress him up, pose him in ridiculous situations and will provide laughs for anyone who meets him. Worthy of his own Facebook page, all Andy needs now is a place to call home. Come to the Brooklyn Care Center and ask to meet Andy today!

Andy previously lived with two adults and 13 years old. The owner stated Andy is relaxed, playful and respectful towards everyone he meets. The owner mentioned Andy is house trained, has a high activity level and well behaved when home alone. The owner describes Andy as playful, confident, excitable, affectionate and friendly.
At intake it was reported Andy was whining but had loose body posture, he allowed all handling. During SAFER Andy came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, he was friendly, social and very playful towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Andy joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Andy was easy to handle when engaged with the items. When off leash with other dogs, Andy rushes in when greeting and is very sexually motivated. He is highly aroused and ignores the helper dog’s corrections. When a strong correction is offered, Andy escalates, jumping on the helper dog and growling. He responds to human interrupters but is slow to de-escalate. Due to some concerns with his dog to dog interaction, the behavior department recommends a thorough dog to dog interaction before place into a permanent home; we feel he can be suitable for an experience adopter.
