Enon melts your heart as soon as you spot him. This New York City transplant is still adjusting to his new home in the Big Apple. While he’s made strides during his time with us, he’s still looking to take those next steps. An understanding adopter in a quiet home with teens and up sounds like a dream for this boy. Does that sound like you?
Big fan of: His people! Enon is a timid pup at first and tends to be a little nervous around people he hasn’t yet met. As he learns to trust you and that you’re a friend, you can physically see Enon’s love for you grow. When he gets a little spooked, Enon turns to his people for comfort. When it’s playtime, he pulls out all his goofy antics to make his friends laugh and brings his toys back for a good game of fetch. When it’s time to relax, Enon is right there on your lap. And, Enon’s love doesn’t end with just humans—he enjoys the company of other dogs too! Just like with people, he takes a little time warming up to new canine friends, but his playful side blossoms.
Working on: Coming out of his shell! When Enon first arrived to the ASPCA Adoption Center from one of our partner shelters in the south, he was understandably pretty scared of the loud sounds, fast movements and intimidating people that are par for the course in New York City. Every day he gets better and better, and Enon would thrive with some positive reinforcement training that can continue to help him bring his confident side out.
Dream home: Because he isn’t a fan of the hustle and bustle of the big city, Enon is looking for a home in a quiet, low-traffic neighborhood. Kids are a little frightening for this sweet boy, so his new home should be comprised of humans who are teens and up. Enon’s adopter should understand that he will need some time to settle into this new home before showing his true colors and that the wait is completely worth it! Our Behavior team would be happy to speak about how you can help Enon transition successfully into his new home.
