In shelter Dog

Manhattan, NY, 10009
Pet name:
10 weeks, Hound Mix, 13lbs, Neutered male (Expected to be Around 55lbs Full Grown) 

If interested in adopting please read everything written below and submit an adoption application ( if the pup seems like a good fit for your family. 

Please Note: We can not guarantee breed mix or age or full grown size, Both are an educated guess. 

Energy Level: Higher - As an adult will need a minimum of 90 minutes of walking/physical activity a day. 

Home Recommendation: Can live in the city or out of the city. Is a puppy so has the potential to be an amazing pal in the city. Wouldnt say no to the burbs. A high active household that is ready to take on the joys (and lots of hard work) of raising a puppy. These pups need adopters that have some dog experience under their belt. Adopters should be really comfortable with taking care of dogs. Should have some primary dog ownership experience or really solid fostering or dog sitting experience (of high active breeds). Should have more experience than just petting a dog on the street or growing up with a dog. Hounds are amazing dogs but thier love language is walking and outdoor adventures. So if you dont enjoy spending lots of time outside and you dont already go on frequent walks or runs - this isnt the dog for you. They are smart and require a lot of stimulation, exercise and training. Adopters will need to be ready to spend a considerable amount of time and energy doing training - we are huge fans of professional training. 

His foster says: Endive is a friendly, loving, playful puppy. He gets along well with new people he meets. Endive loves playing with his squeaky toys and chewing on his bones. He also enjoys going on walks and exploring. Endive is a puppy and does have a few accidents but he is quickly learning and improving on his potty-training skills. Endive has learned how to sit and wait patiently for his treat. Endive can be very cuddly but he will also go into his own bed when he is tired. It has been an amazing experience with Endive and I am so excited for him to find his forever home! He has so much love to give and will make his adoptive family very happy!

What is a hound? Hounds were originally bred as the first hunting companions. There are many different kinds, and all are smart and high energy. Many are known for their ability to track by scent, and they have a reputation for being stubborn and willful they were bred to think and act independently out on hunts, so learning how to efficiently communicate with your hound can make or break your relationship. They are also known for their curiosity. We cant think of another breed more excited to get out and walk and sniff for hours.

What does owning this dog entail?: Tons of socialization, exercise, and mental stimulation is crucial. This dog is considered a working breed since their original purpose was to do a job. Its going to be very important to keep this pup busy both physically and mentally -- that includes a minimum of 90 minutes of quick paced outdoor time plus potty walks every day for this high energy dog. A perfect walking, hiking, and running buddy. They can also be very stop and go walking buddies sometimes because of that crazy nose of theirs, so some hounds require extra leash training -- they literally want to stop and smell every little thing. They are also quick to take off if they catch a scent, so you have to be extra careful with hounds off leash because they will disappear if you havent done enough recall training with them -- or even if you have sometimes, their instincts just take over. We strongly recommend not having them off leash in an unenclosed area. Hounds are excellent snugglers in our experience, and they are great dogs for active outdoorsy people. Heads up they tend to have high prey drive, which means adults are often quick to go for small animals like squirrels and cats. We strongly recommend a basic training course to get a more solid feel for this pups individual needs and how to best communicate with each other. A well trained and exercised dog is a happy dog.

Personality: Life of the party. Puppies this young are pretty similar to one another. Think lots of energy, equal amounts of napping. A zest for human connection and the potential to be incredible dogs with lots of training, routine and guidance. Puppies are incredibly loving and sweet. They just need lots of help learning how to be good boys and girls. Please note that a puppy this young is in the easiest stage of its puppyhood. Adopters should be ready for challenges and ready to put serious time, money and effort into training as the puppy grows into an adult 

House Trained: These pups have started their DAPP vaccine series. They currently arent ready to hit the streets so they are relying on pee pads at this time. Its important to be ready for lots of clean up on aisle PEE. Consistency, praise and patience are the ingredients to house training puppies.

Separation Anxiety & Leash Manners: On par for age. Learning to self soothe. Cries for a few minutes when left alone. Due to vaccine status isnt allowed to walk outside yet: will need to learn how to leash walk. 

Cuddle Factor: High - puppies are usually gluttons for affection and skin to fur contact lol 

Mouthiness: Medium to High - this puppy is just entering its teething phase so you can expect it to get worse before it gets better. These puppies are young so teething isnt bad yet. It will for sure be more challenging as they get older. Puppies enter their high teething phase around 12 weeks old and it can last for a few months. 

Good With Other Dogs: Yes! These nuggets are cleared to interact with healthy adult dogs but shouldnt be going on playdates with other puppies (they need a few more vaccine boosters before they are allowed to do that). Socialization with other dogs is a huge part of raising a puppy. They have all of the potential to be amazing with other dogs ... the ball is in your court.

Good With Cats: Yes! Fun fact: all puppies are good with cats. Its up to the owner to teach their puppy to not chase the cat and to respect the cats boundaries. If you own a cat and want to add a puppy into the mix its very important that your cat has met a dog before and was comfortable around it. You dont want to ruin your cats life by adding a dog, no one wants to live with a grumpy cat. 

Good With Kids: Okay for a home with kind and respectful kids 8 and up. Adopters should be aware of teething stages of a puppy if they have children in the home. If adopting a puppy with kids in the home: adopters need to have a solid plan for handling puppy teething and children. 

Medical Status: Altered (spayed/neutered) and microchipped. Up to date on vaccines. Treated with de-wormer upon intake. Adopter will need to finish out the DHPP series (at least two more vaccines). Adopter will also need to do the Rabies vaccine at 16 weeks of age. 

How They Ended Up With Social Tees: This pup was originally left anonymously at a high volume shelter in TN where they were at risk of euthanasia. Our rescue partner based down there pulled them, had their initial veterinary care done, and transported them to NYC. While in Social Tees care, they are kept in attentive and loving foster homes. Many dogs are rescued from the south because the pet overpopulation problem there is much worse than it is in the northern parts of the country. This seems to be because far fewer people are having their pets spayed/neutered in the south, the climate is warmer so animals are reproducing year round, and the human population in these areas is less dense so there arent enough people to adopt them. In NYC and the surrounding area, we have a large human population, which in turn means the animals find forever homes at a higher rate up here. :) 

PLEASE NOTE: This animal is not at the Social Tees office all of our dogs and cats are in foster homes while they wait to find their forever families. :) If youd like to apply to adopt this pet, please complete an adoption application at Because we are a small team and receive hundreds of applications each week, we are unable to respond to every application and every inquiry email, but we do our best. Please have patience! If your application is approved, you will for sure hear from us. If you have questions, please take a look at the Adoption and Fostering FAQs etc. on our website as all common questions are answered there. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we work to save these innocent lives!!
