Neo was originally surrendered to Mansfield Animal Control after he was owned by a UCONN student who wanted to use him as an ambassador for his online clothing line. He also got a female American Bulldog who was an exotic color so he favored her, and Neo was neglected. He was not allowed to have dogs at his apartment so he was surrendered to Animal Control while the other dog was taken by a friend. Neo is a 1 ½ year old American Bulldog. He was adopted from the pound but returned for being mouthy with his new adopters. Our Staff and Volunteers were working with him through the Adopt-A-Shelter Program, and Neo even came to our Family Companion 1 class in Manchester before we had space to have him join us at the Sanctuary.
Neo is still settling in, but we’ve been keeping him busy at the Sanctuary between walks, play yard time, busy boxes and taking a dip in the backyard kiddie pools or the pond! He has shown some of his previous behaviors that the adopters found, but we have the time to work with him to teach him new ways. He’s much like Milo so they are receiving much of the same training.
