Adoptable Animal of the Week: Meet Yankee

Name: Yankee
Case Number: 6190

My name is Yankee and I am a sweet, loving chap.

I love everyone, even the most unusual of strangers, and relish being petted and massaged.I’m such a social butterfly that I might well make a great therapy pet with a little training. I enjoy playing with people, and though I’m not terribly playful with toys now, I may become more so once in a home.I am a little uncomfortable with some handling (muzzle), and I tend to be a little hand-shy and I act as if I’ve been hit in the past.

I will readily share my resources with people. Because of my sensitivity to certain handling, I'd be better in a home with older children. I am very interested in other dogs and will enjoy their company. Since I’m somewhat inexperienced in dog play, some dogs can be a bit too much for me; Play dates and developing friendships with dogs who play like I do, would help me gain experience.I'm housebroken, and although I don't know any basic commands, I'm eager to learn some for a taste of my favorite treats!

One thing I definitely need to learn is to walk nicely on leash. And training will help us forge a relationship.

Right now, I'm living at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh, but I'm looking forward to the day I can meet my new forever family.
