A volunteer writes: I’m sure you’ve come across lots of soda pop that claims to be refreshing and sweet, but our Soda Pop is not just refreshing and sweet, he is also devilishly handsome, bursting at the seams with charm, and tons of fun! His wrinkly mushy face and the way he was curled up on his bed when I first met him were all that was needed for me to fall in love with him, but I quickly discovered many more reasons to love him! He pulls some on the leash, but definitely not with all of his strength. He seems housebroken and will “sit” or briefly walk on his hind legs for treats (he’ll bark to let me know I’m taking too long to deliver, but once I do takes them like a gentleman!). He’s very friendly and lets me cuddle him all I want (he might leave some drool here and there, but it’s a small price to pay for his company!). He’s very playful, but even when he’s gotten jumpy or mouthy with me he is easily calmed down and seems to have some awareness of his size. He likes to chase tennis balls and pauses to do lingering play bows as he bounds around. I’m told he even does great with other dogs in playgroup. This is the best Soda Pop ever! He would be delighted to meet you at Brooklyn ACC.

Soda Pop came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Soda Pop was friendly and attention seeking. During SAFER Soda pop came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Soda Pop joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Soda Pop was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Soda Pop appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
