Petfinder recommends that you should always take reasonable security steps before making online payments.
If interested in adopting please read everything written below and submit an adoption application (www.socialteesnyc.org) if the pup seems like a good fit for your family.
Please Note: We can not guarantee breed mix or age or full grown size, Both are an educated guess.
Energy Level: Higher - As an adult will need a minimum of 90 minutes of walking/physical activity a day.
Home Recommendation: Can live in the city or out of the city. Is a puppy so has the potential to be an amazing pal in the city. Wouldn't say no to the burbs. A high active household that is ready to take on the joys (and lots of hard work) of raising a puppy. These pups need adopters that have some dog experience under their belt. Adopters should be really comfortable with taking care of dogs. Should have some primary dog ownership experience or really solid fostering or dog sitting experience (of high active breeds). Should have more experience than just petting a dog on the street or growing up with a dog. Hounds are amazing dogs but thier love language is walking and outdoor adventures. So if you don't enjoy spending lots of time outside and you don't already go on frequent walks or runs - this isn't the dog for you. They are smart and require a lot of stimulation, exercise and training. Adopters will need to be ready to spend a considerable amount of time and energy doing training - we are huge fans of professional training.
His foster says: Endive (Cooper) is such a little cutie! Pictures make him look deceiving large, but he currently is a small 20-25 pound puppy with LONG legs. His right ear flops backwards often which is adorable. He is adjusting to New York City incredibly well. He likes to be active, is a medium energy level but will likely be high energy as an adult. He is the best cuddle bug! (Medium). He will try and kick you off the couch if he wants to stretch his legs out! He is surprisingly well potty trained and has a fairly easy schedule. I have been taking him out at 7-7:30AM in the morning to pee. Breakfast around 8AM. He will sleep again for a few hours, followed by a longer walk (11AM-12:30PM). He poops once a day during this walk. For the remainder of the day, I will take him out about every 4 hours with one longer evening walk (30 min). He will sit at the door and come to you and whine if he needs to go out. He sleeps in the crate well at night - he will occasionally whine for a minute but settles down by himself. He can hold his bladder from midnight to 7AM without issue. He is very comfortable with strangers and has been a superstar walking around New York City. He is good with children but will require supervision for younger kids (he will jump up when excited or riled up). He is also generally good with other dogs without size preference. He is timid if they are more excited and run up quickly but he meets and plays with dogs well. I have not seen him interact with other pets ie cats yet. As a puppy, can be mouthy (medium) and will occasionally try to gnaw on a blanket or your hands but is very easily redirectable to chew toys. In terms of leash manners, he is in the WTF is a leash stage. He loves to sniff and explore on walks, but he is very food motivated and will likely learn fast to stay more focused. He is a low/medium for jumping on people to say Hi, especially if the person is excited as well. Regarding separation anxiety, he whines a bit when you leave but quickly self-soothes and settles.
House Trained: Yes!
Separation Anxiety & Leash Manners: On par for age. Learning to self soothe. Cries for a few minutes when left alone. Good on leash, loves to say hi to everyone and everything.
Cuddle Factor: High
Mouthiness: Medium, respectful of your furniture but loves to chew on toys.
Good With Other Dogs: Yes!
Good With Cats: Yes! Can be cat tested if requested by an approved adopter.
Good With Kids: Okay for a home with kind and respectful kids 8 and up. Adopters should be aware of teething stages of a puppy if they have children in the home. If adopting a puppy with kids in the home: adopters need to have a solid plan for handling puppy teething and children.
Medical Status: Altered (spayed/neutered) and microchipped. Up to date on vaccines. Treated with de-wormer upon intake.
How They Ended Up With Social Tees: This pup was originally left anonymously at a high volume shelter in TN where they were at risk of euthanasia. Our rescue partner based down there pulled them, had their initial veterinary care done, and transported them to NYC. While in Social Tees care, they are kept in attentive and loving foster homes. Many dogs are rescued from the south because the pet overpopulation problem there is much worse than it is in the northern parts of the country. This seems to be because far fewer people are having their pets spayed/neutered in the south, the climate is warmer so animals are reproducing year round, and the human population in these areas is less dense so there aren't enough people to adopt them. In NYC and the surrounding area, we have a large human population, which in turn means the animals find forever homes at a higher rate up here. :)
PLEASE NOTE: This animal is not at the Social Tees office all of our dogs and cats are in foster homes while they wait to find their forever families. :) If you'd like to apply to adopt this pet, please complete an adoption application at socialteesnyc.org. Because we are a small team and receive hundreds of applications each week, we are unable to respond to every application and every inquiry email, but we do our best. Please have patience! If your application is approved, you will for sure hear from us. If you have questions, please take a look at the Adoption and Fostering FAQs etc. on our website as all common questions are answered there. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we work to save these innocent lives!!
