I found Petey, sitting peacefully in his kennel, not in a negative posture, not intimidated by my presence, but totally relaxed and somewhat inquisitive as to who stood before him … “Hum, could be someone I’d like to know. I like friendly people and I like his unique face.” I called to him and he peacefully came to the front of the kennel, and then he came to life. Petey is a beautiful dog, brindle in overall color, and good looking in every way, a perfect body style, trim and muscular, and so well-proportioned for his breed. His nature is just as I’d hoped it would be, gentle, but affectionate, responsive and attentive. On our walk, Petey immediately fell into the pace, of being a good doggie, while I led. Petey did his business just where he should, letting on that he is very likely house trained. He is also was soooo friendly, and eager to “Sit” on command, knowing that I would reward him for his action, and so he did, “Biscuits, biscuits, I love biscuits!” He loved to be rubbed and scratched, as most dogs do, and sit by my side, when we stopped for a spell (My very favorite thing to do). As far as I can see, Petey will make a great addition to any one’s life, as your companion, and as the families pet. Won’t you please come into our Brooklyn Care Center today to meet Petey, for sure, he’d love nothing more than meeting and greeting with you, and more, coming home with you today. Adopting an animal is an experience not gotten by another. It’s a joyous event, heart felt and truly over the top in every direction. It’s not something that lasts but for one day, it’s something you are guaranteed to last a lifetime, in your mind and heart. “Come in today and make that difference … Come in today and see.”

If you like larger dogs, who are affectionate, responsive, good natured and good looking, this is the dog for you. Petey loves to be scratched, hugged, and given attention to. Petey loves treats, and loves to sit on command. He does his business, right where he should, letting on that he’s house trained and smart, knowing that his inside space is not a litter box. He does pull a bit, being a larger dog with large strides, he’s a challenge. He needs teaching for better walking habits. Petey likes to play with and has a gorgeous brindle coat overall. Open up your heart today and come into our Brooklyn Care Center to meet as your families pet and companion.

Behavior: Experienced Home
Petey came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake Petey was friendly and approached everybody with a loose body and wagging tail. He was very strong but listened when asked to sit, he remained excited throughout the intake and allowed everyone to handle him. During SAFER Petey came into the assessment room with high energy and tail wagging, also on his relief walk he pulls very strongly on the leash. Sensitivity he leans into the assessor with soft body and tail wagging and his mouth opened, tag interaction he joins the game in a playful manner and approaching the assessor at the end, when both paw squeezes was attempted he didn’t response but licks the assessor hand showing no signs of aggression. Food and toy item he displayed minimal interest by sniffing it, for rawhide item he showed no interest. Petey appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. The behavior department feels he can go to an “experience” adopter.
