About TROY

Hi.  My name is Troy.  I am a handsome 6-yr-old Akita mix. If I look intimidating to you, I’m really just a gentle giant….once I know you’re not going to hurt me.  My history with humans hasn’t been very good.  I spent the first 5 yrs of my life living outside on concrete.  My “owners” did not provide me with the human interaction I craved or allow me the chance to socialize with other dogs.  When neighbors started complaining about me being outside crying in the frigid temperatures, my owner sent me to the highest kill shelter in NY.  Thankfully I was rescued and have spent the last year living with the greatest foster dad ever.  He has provided me with the love and structure I desperately needed and deserved. Thanks to him, I am now crate trained, housebroken, walk well on a leash. I am very food motivated.  I won’t lie….I can become possessive of my food, but I’m working on it and don’t mind eating breakfast and dinner and my crate.  Although I have never shown any signs of aggression, I do take time to warm up to people since I was never properly socialized.  For that reason, it’s best if I’m the only dog in the house.  I love to cuddle in bed and will roll over for belly rubs once I know you’re not there to use, abuse or neglect me.  Please contact nypeticare@aol.com
