Home Recommendation

His Foster parent says:

Although Pecan is a a young adult dog, he has the abundant energy of a puppy. He loves exploring on long walks, sniffing literally everything there is to smell, and meeting every other dog we pass. Don't expect to be out and back in under an hour, he enjoys a long stroll to get his energy out and to go potty. Pecan enjoys rough housing with other dogs in the park by tackling and nipping, but it's never been a problem - except for me trying to keep him from getting tangled on his leash! He doesn't rough house unless his playmate approves. He's a jumper, often putting his paws up on me when he's excited. And when he's excited at home, usually at the prospect of going for a walk, he will go absolutely bonkers. But throughout the day and at night, he's a complete sweetheart. He loves cuddling on one of his many blankets, or sitting on the window sill looking out on the street. Whenever I go to pet him, he immediately shows tummy and begs for some chest scratches. I try to keep him off the bed, but when I wake up in the morning I find him cuddled up against my legs, and once I start stirring he comes up to be closer.

Level of Dog Ownership Experience Needed

INTERMEDIATE: This dog will need significant structure and plenty of daily exercise, training, and mental stimulation 90 consecutive minutes of movement in the morning plus potty break walks and brain games throughout the day. The adopter must have relevant primary care experience with a similar breed, temperament, and/or energy level. (Primary care experience includes ownership, fostering, or dog sitting as an adult, not a dog you grew up with.)

Energy Level

MEDIUM: Needs a daily 60-90 minute walk or window of quick paced exercise (minimum) in addition to potty break strolls (10-30 min each). Also needs significant socializing opportunities outside the home and mental stimulation at home like tricks training practice, chew items, and puzzle toys. (This is regardless of dog size many small breeds were designed for lots of activity and will exhibit unwanted behavior when they're understimulated.)

Cuddle Factor

Somewhere between medium and high. He definitely has the drive to be a non-stop cuddle bug, but I try to ignore him during the day to prevent separation anxiety. Even when I'm not actively playing with him, he likes to sleep near me while I go about my work day.

Potty Trained

Yes - - Fully potty trained!

Comfy With Strangers?

Yes - -Wants to be friends with everyone who walks by, super social butterfly, loves anyone who will stop to say hello. But he is more interested in meeting other animals. Dogs on the street, neighbors cats, even NYC street rat

Social With Children? (ALWAYS requires supervision)

Yes for 12 and up may be a little energetic or a little skittish, best with older children that can be extra gentle or that are big enough not to get accidentally knocked down. He likes to jump to get attention and show excitement. He also likes to nip when he's excited. We're working on that behavior.

Social With Dogs?

Yes - - Peacan LOVES other dogs! He would do great in a home with another playful dog. He tends to meet the activity level and play manners of who he's playing with. Smaller dogs tend to not jump on him, but he likes wrestling and nipping at dogs who are just slightly larger than him. And he pouts when he leaves his play friend!

Social With Cats?

Yes - - This breed tends to be pretty good with cats once you set the boundries in.

Mouthy Play

Medium - Likes to nip at hands and clothes when he's excited. I've caught him nibbling at a rubber slipper, but nothing destructive.

Leash Manners

Working on This Skill - - Does pretty well for a Beagle (they are ruled by thier noses after all). Just wants to smell every scent and meet every dog on the street. But is generally good about it and responds well to directions and gentle tugs. Doesn't pull much.

Jumping Manners

High- very excited to greet everyone and has no idea how to do so politely. Jumps up on most strangers or other dogs that bo by. In the puppy phase or wasn't trained as young adult.

Separation Anxiety

Lower - - Does cry for a bit when he is left home alone but calms down after a while and chills out.

Medical Status

Up to date on their DHPP, Bordetella Vaccine and Rabies Vaccine. Heartworm Negative, Spayed(females)/Neutered (males) and microchipped. De-wormed upon intake.

How Did They End Up With Social Tees Animal Rescue?

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 this dog, had the 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!!
