A staff member writes: Meet Klay! He was surrendered because of landlord issues. When Klay was brought to the Brooklyn care center, he was friendly around his owner, but became nervous and began lunging at strangers. He is very trusting of his owner, but now that his owner is gone, he will need some time to warm up to a new one. This handsome fella needs to go to an experienced home, where he will be able to receive some behavior modifications. Help him out today!

Behavior: New Hope Only
Klay previously lived with 2 adults and a 10 year child, and the owner stated Klay was playful, respectful and relaxed towards everyone in the household. His behavior is unknown towards cats and dogs, and he was reported to bark, growl, and snap at strangers. He was said to have a high activity level and the owner described him as excitable, anxious and independent. The owner mentioned Klay has bitten someone in the past, and can be hard to control. He allows his owner to touch food while eating, and isn’t bothered when the owner takes his toys or treats away from his mouth. It was also mentioned that he likes to take baths but does not do well for nail trimmings.
At intake Klay was reported to be calm and allowed handling when muzzled, but when the muzzle was removed he barked and lunged. During SAFER Klay was not sociable, but did approach and sniffed the assessor’s hands and legs. When attempting to place the collar on Klay he became stiff and uncomfortable, and attempted to flee from the assessor. Due to this response and to avoid further stress from Klay the handling portion of the assessment was not attempted at this time. During the resources portion of the assessment Klay was easy to handle when engaged with the food, and only showed minimal interest in the toys or rawhides. When placing Klay back into his kennel, he became stiff and snapped at the handler. Due to the concerning behaviors displayed while in the care center we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provided behavior modification work to address these behaviors and can extensively counsel potential adopters before placement into a permanent home.
Food: 1. Dog lifts head and ceases eating when you reach to pull the bowl away or push him out.
Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog licks, then turns away.
Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide, dog licks, then turns away.
Group Behavior Notes: When off leash with other dogs, Klay is polite when greeted but is quite nervous in the yard. 6/26 Update: Klay is tolerant and explores the yard.
