Name: Angel Case Number: #2656
My name is Angel and I am a sweet, sassy gal! Right now, I'm staying at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh, but I can't wait for day I'm adopted and get to live with a loving family in my forever home.
I love everyone, even the most unusual of strangers. I just need to learn to be more polite when meeting them. I like playing with people and simply love toys, but I can get over-excited. I’ll need to learn some impulse control in order to play politely. Because of my exuberance and lack of impulse control, I’d be better with teens and up until I learn some manners.
I’m comfortable with all types of handling and will readily share my resources with people. I get upset when scolded and take a little time to settle back down.
I tend to be stiff and inappropriate with other dogs. I should really learn some manners and impulse control when around other dogs. Even then, I’d do best having play dates and developing friendships with patient dogs who won’t take offense to my antics. Ultimately, I may well be happier as a people-centric pooch.
I don't know any basic commands but I'm eager to learn for a taste of my favorite treats! I definitely need to learn to walk nicely on leash, not to leash-bite, and not to be jumpy, though I’m only a mild offender. Training will help us forge a relationship.
