Momo could die if not adopted soon. Upon surrendering Momo to the shelter the owner lied on the surrender form. Claiming Momo is aggressive and has two previous bite history.
Yet upon behavioral examination, Momo did not seem aggressive.
Hello, my name is Momo. My animal id is #70412. I am a desexed male white dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 6 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 7/26/2019, with the surrender reason stated as animal behavior – aggressive towards people.
Behavior during intake: Momo had a soft and relaxed body during intake. He approached the counselor right away and began to lick the counselors hand and jump on the counselors lap. Counselor was able to scan for a microchip, collar and take a picture without any issues.
Date of Intake: 7/26/2019
Spay/Neuter Status: Neutered
Basic Information:: Momo is a 1 and a half year old neutered male that has no known current or previous medical concerns that the owner is aware of. Owner had Momo in the home since he was 2 months old but had to surrender due to Momo biting family members in the home
There are many people out there who lie on the intake form. Just so they don’t have to care for their companion anymore. Those that lie on the form need to realize that they are setting their companion up for the death penalty.
When surrendering an animal please be honest, with the receptionists. You will be surprised that more often than not people can be sympathetic to you. Knowing the difficulties of giving up a companion because of falling on hard times, forced to move and unable to care for due to failing health.
If you are in the New Hope area, and can adopt Momo, please help him out.
