Wishful thinking calling this little boy Ceasar… Yes, we so wish that soon a star will shine upon this youngster and make him as big and strong as the Roman Emperor. Ceasar was left after hours in the lobby of the Brooklyn Care Center. A poorly nourished babe, skin and bones and who most likely has not seen much of the day light. His hinds are crouched, his nails are long, he does not know what a leash is and he has to be carried into the yard. I bet he lived in a crate. Ceasar is quite cute, though.His coat is perfect and shines in the sunlight. He owns beautiful bright eyes, a spotted bib and one eye catching white paw. He is a little anxious, leash free in a pen. He is intrigued by a very large dog playing in an adjacent enclosure and cries a little. His tail wags… maybe he wants to play? Ceasar comes when I call him.He likes treats but does not snatch them from my hand. He likes to be caressed and poses his head in my lap for a petting session. He is quite a sweet little guy, only ten months of age. Cesar needs desperately to know what life as a PET is all about, you know, what you and me do with our own. Basic care, sure, but also all the spoiling that goes with it. Treats, comfy bed, the sofa, a trip to the beach – and most of all, LOVE. Ceasar needs all that. Will you be Ceasar’s savior? We surely count on you. Ceasar is waiting at the Manhattan Care Center

Ceasar came to us as a stray on 4/8/2015. Upon intake, counselors describe him as shy but friendly. Ceasar came out of his kennel easily, but was afraid to go into the yard for his relief walk and had to be carried, which he allowed. He is underweight and entered the SAFER assessment room foraging for food. He stood still and accepted all tactile handling, but cautiously with tail down and ears back. Ceasar was unresponsive during tag and a bit fearful, stopping in between the 2nd and 3rd pass and needing additional coaxing to complete. Ceasar followed the dish gently during Food item, and lifted his head/ceased eating when pushing his cheeks out of the dish. He had minimal interest in toy and although he had interest in rawhide, he relinquished it easily. Ceasar appeared interested in meeting the helper dog for Dog-to-Dog interaction, ears foward and tail wagging. The Behavior Team feels Ceasar would do best in an Experienced home due to his nervous cautious behavior. One where they can introduce him to new environment stimuli slowly and help him relax and give him time to warm up. Even though Ceasar was nervous during the assessment, he was gentle, sweet, social and friendly to assessor.
