A staff member writes: One look at that cute, concerned expression and anyone would melt. Sony is a beautiful, red nosed boy looking for a home. This big guy is always ready for a romp in the yard. Sony is an energetic dog that would love some owners who will give him plenty of walks and love. Do you have room in your home and heart for Sony? If so come meet him at the Brooklyn ACC.
A volunteer writes: Does Sony make Duracell batteries? Because this Sony NEVER RUNS OUT OF ENERGY! 🙂 Sony would be a perfect running buddy for an active person. Judging by his tall legs, big chest, and coloring (not to mention his high energy level), I have a sneaking suspicion that Sony is part Boxer. If you have ever owned a Boxer (like I do), you know that they are very eager to please, but need a LOT of exercise and stimulation (both mental and physical). Sony would do great with an experienced dog owner who is willing to provide Sony with the mental challenge of training (Sony isn’t good at sharing his toys right now), and help him use up that energy, too. Sony has a strong, curious personality– he’s a very unique and beautiful dog– but he needs someone who can give him the time and energy that he needs. For an energetic dog like Sony, being in the shelter is just the pits. Please come and see him today.

DOG HAD SOFT FORMED BM WITH LARGE AMOUNT OF ROUNDWORMS. STARTING ON PANACUR SID X 3D, RECOMMEND REPEATING IN 3 WEEKS AND 3 MOS
Sony came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Sony was friendly with loose body posture, he allowed all handling. During SAFER Sony came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was friendly towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Sony joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Sony freezes and growls on toy item. Due to some concerns on toy item, the behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed.
Toy 1: 4. Dog freezes and growls.
