Meet Sir! Sir arrived @brookhaven_shelter in October of 2017 after being found stray by a Good Samaritan. He patiently waited for his family to come and find him, but sadly no one ever called, no one ever came. Sir is yet another stunning forgotten soul sitting behind shelter walls far too long.
When Sir first arrived at the shelter it was immediately noticed that he was leash biting in reaction to other dogs or when being corrected. He is not a fan of either dogs or cats and he has severe food aggression as well as a high value treat (rawhide, bully sticks, knuckle bone) aggression. Sir has also exhibited a bit of stranger danger while at the shelter as well.
Please DO NOT pass over this wonderful boy for adoption because of his fears, he just needs someone who will take the time to get to know him and understand him. Sir is around 6 years young, weighs 62 pounds, is neutered, micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations and heartworm negative. He is obsessed with tennis balls and loves squeaky toys. He knows the entire agility course, and really enjoys the activity. He walks well on a leash, knows sit, leave it and will give both paws. He loves to play tag with his best human girlfriend at the shelter, loves to get on his bed and cuddle with a good cozy blanket.
The best home for Sir is with a very special Mom or Dad — savvy, highly experienced with resource guarding individual(s) who are committed to and will put in the time needed to gain his trust. An adult home, with not a lot of people traffic or visitors going in and out. Loving patient individuals who will give him the time he needs to decompress and adjust to home life. No kids, no other pets.
Sir is available to a highly experienced adopter through RESCUE ONLY.
Don’t hesitate to give yourself the wonderful opportunity to brighten Sir’s life, you will not regret it! #rescueme #rescueonly #adoptdontshop #shelterdog #shelterdogsrock #shelterdogsofinstagram #nydog #dogsofinstagram #pitmix #pittiemix #pittielover #pittielove #brookhavenanimalshelter
