A name that describes her so well : Zoye or Life in Greek…. Indeed, our Zoye is a lively young gal who loves everything she does, eating, playing, snuggling with her caretaker or going for a walk around the block. She can sit on command and for treats and seems house trained as I could observe during our stroll. She walks quite well on the leash, wagging eagerly her tail, sniffing a lot the ground, not chasing pigeons and rather ignoring other dogs met. . She comes when I call her and sits by my side for bonding time. Zoye loves balls. Her eyes light up when she sees one, she dances on her hinds,she is a little impatient, she must have it…I throw, she runs and jumps after it, catches it and hop on the bench, plays with it, delicately like it is a very cherished object…She does not mind me sitting with her and caressing her while she busies herself with her toy. She would love having 3 or 4 balls at the same time to play with. She was quite shy in her first playgroup with other dogs .I imagine that she willget the “hang of it” and enjoy herself very soon. Zoye is a beautiful young gal, perfectly made and dressed in a well groomed tricolor coat. A mother she has been once upon a time. She is passionate, enthusiastic in all what she does and would love an active owner or family with whom she could run and play…Zoye is at the Manhattan Care Center, eagerly waiting to meet you and leave as your forever best friend.
Zoey pulls a bit on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Zoey became overaroused during the tag interaction (mouthy with a moderate pressure). She took the toy with a soft body language.
Zoey show a bit of concern during the tag interaction she became a bit over arousal she was quick to use her mouth in play and has poor body awareness, resulting in her mouthing handlers with moderate pressure. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 3. Dog responds with her tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body checks the Assessor. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
When off leash with other dogs Zoey is nervous. She does not allow greeting and will turn away and lip lick when approached.
11/28 update: Zoey is uncomfortable when interacting and will avoid the other dogs.
