Mister arrived at the care center from his previous home. He has spent a brief period of time in an adopters' home. He has been described as an overall social dog with all adults met and is described as friendly, affectionate, playful and excitable. The previous adopter of Mister has reported him to become anxious when left alone, and that he has previously broken out of crates. He was noted to growl when food items in his possession are removed. Reports of reactivity toward dogs have been observed both by his previous caretakers, and within the care center as he may lunge, growl, or bark toward them. In the care center, he has displayed increased instances of resource guarding and fixation on toys, growling and vocalizing when approached while he has them, and often becoming frantic, vocal, and chewing at fences and other fixtures when unable to reach nearby toys. At this time, Mister may succeed the best outside of a shelter environment and should be placed into an experienced, adult-only home where he can be the only resident dog.
There is an adorable video of me on ACC's TikTok page. Click here to experience the cuteness!
A volunteer writes: Until he takes your surname, Mister's last name is definitely Wonderful. This waddly, meatball of a boy is the whole package, packed into a sturdy frame on short enough legs that, depending on how you look at it, he's the perfect big dog or perfect smallish dog. Regardless, he's all-around perfect. His former owner, who describes him as "friendly and exuberant," also says he has no reactivity to dogs, which we witnessed firsthand on a walk, as well as his lovely leash manners, as he pranced proudly along the street. Mister is eager to make friends with everyone, appears housetrained, and is an absolute joy of a companion. All he's missing is the last name to call his own!
