Hello, my name is Max. My animal id is #125433. I am a desexed male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 10/4/2021, with the surrender reason stated as animal behavior - aggressive to other animals.
Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.
Max is on emergency placement for behavioral reasons. Max is reactive toward other dogs, and is highly anxious in the care center. He has displayed the potential to become overly excited when engaged with handlers, to the point of mouthing hard and leaving bruising. Medically, Max is apparently healthy.
Let's get to know each other a bit more...

Max is reactive toward other dogs and is highly anxious in the care center. He has displayed the potential to become overly excited when engaged with handlers, to the point of mouthing hard and leaving bruising. Medically, Max is apparently healthy. Max was brought into the care center as an owner surrender. He is reported to be playful in the home. As per his former owner, Max knows how to sit, lay down and give paw with hand signals, and is also crate trained. He appears to be conditioned to wear a basket muzzle. Max's previous owner has noted him to become reactive, lunge, and snap toward other dogs, as well as select strangers on bikes and skateboards. In one instance, Max had bitten his owner on the hand when they attempted to block Max from an approaching dog. In the care center, Max has appeared highly anxious, though has displayed some social behavior toward handlers he has met. Max has been observed to become highly mouthy and exuberant, to the point of leaving bruising when being handled by a staff member. Max would succeed best in an experienced, adult-only home with no other animals. He would benefit from additional positive reinforcement and careful management in his future home.
