Case Number: #5300
My name is Pudding and I am a sweet little gal looking for love! Right now I am living at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh but hope to find my forever home soon.
While I’m personable with everyone, my personality really blossoms when I’m with my special people! I was not particularly playful during my evaluation, but that's because I am pretty upset being in the shelter. I will likely be much more playful once I am in my new home. I’m a little uncomfortable with some handling (muzzle) but will tolerate it. I will readily share my food with people though.
I may get a little shy with unusual new people (limping, hooded, …), but if given a little time to adjust, I will make friends with them. Patient introductions with people who concern me, and having them give me treats, will help me get more comfortable with them. I look to my human companion for direction. Due to my shyness, I may be more comfortable in a household of teenagers and up.
While interested in meeting other dogs, I wasn’t very playful when I was evaluated – I was more interested in just making their acquaintance. I have lived with another dog in the past.
I don't know any basic commands but I'm eager to learn for a taste of my favorite treats! One thing I definitely need to learn is to walk nicely on leash. Training may help build my confidence and will help us forge a relationship. I may have some trouble with aloneness and may be a bit vocal about it. I will need to learn how to tolerate being left alone better.
I've also already been altered and I'm up-to-date on my shots.
