A volunteer writes: Did you know that we have a diva here at the Manhattan Care Center? We could not find a better name to give her…So, we call her Diva, the diva….Diva is a medium size stocky gal, all muscles wrapped in a magnificent and flawless sepia coat. She is gorgeous. I close my eyes and I imagine how serene and majestic she must have been feeding her last brood. She owns shiny and laughing eyes and her smile is almost legendary. I used the word..legendary because Diva and her housemates Cream and Lola have been with us for quite a while for no fault of their own. But their chance has come to show the world how great they are, how wonderful pets they would be if …you too give them a chance….Diva does everything with passion. She is an enthusiastic girl who knows how to show her love for her caretakers like each and every one of them is the one and only…. She is a snuggler and a kisser. This is one of the reasons why she is very much liked here at the care center. She seems fine with all dogs met in the center or in the street, even if they bark nastily at her… Diva is an athletic gal who flies high like a rocket after a ball and propels herself forward, in mid air to catch it. 52 pounds defying gravity!! It is quite a sight to see her in action. She retrieves beautifully having mastered the art of sharing with her human friends. Diva is not hyper or too energetic….Not at all, our tomboy does everything with measure making her an incredible candidate for world’s best forever best friend!!! Diva loves life, loves people and most likely other dogs too. Come and meet this amazing gal at the Manhattan Care Center and make her your friend for life…
Diva walks nicely on leash; she was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. She was calm and relaxed during handling. She engages in play, loose body, wags tail, mouth is open. Diva did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Diva took the toy from the assessor’s hand quickly, but was easy to handle when chewing on the toy and rawhide.
Lola was brought to the care center in August 2015; upon intake, Diva was playful and interactive with staff and she walked nicely on leash. Lola was relaxed throughout the assessment and remained social towards the assessor with a soft body; she also approached the helped dog with a soft body, wagging tail and showed no behavioral concerns. The Behavior Department feels Diva can go to an average home.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
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 closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc.
Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
Food 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish’s movement. Dog’s body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. She lifts her head when hand is pushed against her cheek.
Toy 1. Dog takes toy from assessor quickly, settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Rawhide 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the rawhide.
Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body soft, tail well above spine level and wagging, ears forward.
