Mikey

Hello, my name is Mikey. My animal id is #30304. I am a desexed male cinnamon dog at the . The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 1 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a stray on 05-Jun-2018.

Reserved

Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Mikey is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs and will require a course of antibiotic treatment. Mikey came to ACC along with 3 other dogs, one of which is Donnie, also at risk. They would be happy placed together, or separately. We suggest that a dog experienced home would be best, due to size and energy levels.

You may know me from such films as...

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A volunteer writes:A roly-poly ball of friendly fun, Mikey looks and acts like a playful puppy and he's so unbelievably cute that everyone falls truly, madly, deeply in love the instant they see him. His eager eyes, floppy ears and hilariously silly ball-grabbing leaps make for fantastic 'action shots' and if you've been searching for the latest Instagram superstar, we've got him right here! Mikey was abandoned outside the Care Center with his 3 brothers (Leo, Ralph and Donnie) so it's no surprise that he gets along well with other dogs, joining in playgroup shenanigans with a smile and even getting exuberantly bouncy once he feels comfortable with his new friends. He's a champion ball fetcher and a wonderful teammate, always happy to share his toys and move back from the ball to wait for another throw and out in the street he takes treats politely and walks quite nicely on leash, checking in every so often with his person. Gorgeous, good-natured and wonderfully goofy, Mikey truly has it all. He aced his behavior assessment and now that he's been neutered, Mikey's ready to jump right into a new home and start charming your family today!

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)

Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

Potential challenges: : Fearful

Potential challenges comments:: Fearful: Mikey is a bit fearful at the care center, especially with quick movements. It is important to always go slow and give Mikey the option to walk away from any social interaction. Mikey should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Mikey’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Mikey would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
