Dreamy Creamy, Cream of the crop, Creamium (like premium, get it?), Creamsicle…I could go on all day with the pet names this wonderful, affectionate, friendly and playful hunk inspires but then there’d be no space for the many, many, many reasons you should hurry into our Manhattan Care Center to meet him! Cream arrived with his two equally gorgeous sisters, Lola (A1048752) and Diva (A1048753), and just like them he’s super social and very easy to love. Staff and volunteers adore the whole family but each has their own special character quirks and Cream is the ‘big boy’ of the group; 80 pounds of mushy, ball-playing, butt-wiggling, face-kissing, treat-loving goofball. He’s always happy to make new friends of both the two and four-legged variety and aside from a strong leash walking style his manners are impeccable. Cream seems to be very house trained, always comes when called, sits politely on command for treats or a throw of the ball and he absolutely LOVES having his butt rubbed! When I scratch the spot just above his tail he curls his body sideways and looks up at me with adoration in his eyes and if I stop the massage he ‘backs that thing up’ and leans waaay into my legs as a subtle hint that he’d like some more, please. Chasing and chewing the tennis ball is a favorite hobby and though you’ll find it hard to pry it from his grasp, Cream never guards his toys and is perfectly happy to ‘trade up’ for a treat or another ball, though I can’t imagine why you’d want to deprive yourself of the pleasure of watching him and his big mush mouth enjoying a chew session — the facial expressions are adorable! A gentle giant with a huge heart to match, this handsome guy already aced his behavior assessment and now he’s just waiting to go home. Cream is a total dreamboat and as much as I’d love to spend more time playing and snuggling with him, I can’t wait for the day I see him walk out the door with a new forever family by his side. If you’re very lucky, it could be with you!
Cream came into our center after he was found abandoned with two other dogs inside a vacant apartment. He walked well on leash and was playful and interactive in the center lobby. Cream held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, tag wagging. He leaned in during Sensitivity item, tail wagging, mouth open. Cream followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body soft, settling easily at end. He gently pulled his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Cream required a lot of pressure to remove his face from the Food bowl, but his body was not stiff. He kept a firm grip on Toy and Rawhide, neutral body. Cream approached the hellper dog at an appropriate pace, , ears forward, tail above spine level. The Behavior Team feels Cream would do well in an Average home. He may benefit from learning the command ‘drop it’ and trade up games.
