11/21/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/21/15 15:28 Charlie A1058588 is a 1yr 1/2 year old large but short male tricolor American Staffordshire perhaps Boerboel mix who was given to the finder by the owner a day ago in the Bronx. The finder is unable to keep Charlie but tried to find him a home with coworkers and or former coworkers. Immediately upon entering our facility another admissions counselor & I recognized Charlie from a visit he & his owner paid us early this summer. The owner wanted to show Charlie off to us & we fell in love. Charlie is a big love bug. He jumps excitedly up like a bucking bronco and loves hugs, kisses & butt scratches. The finder stated Charlie appeared to be house trained since he had no accidents in the home; he slept on a pile of t shirts and ate some dry Pedigree dog food. Upon intake Charlie was still a big love bug, still jumps excitedly up like a bucking bronco and still loves hugs, kisses & butt scratches. He allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of. I think I could’ve packed Chameleon up with Charlie pictures. He had a super soft, wiggly body which chose a few times to direct his attention to mounting a staff member but accepted correction. Charlie showed off his “sit” and takes treats eagerly but gently. He walked into his kennel and sat nicely.
11/24/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: If I had a dollar for every person who complimented Charlie as we walked I could quit my day job! He’s absolutely magnificent, a big blockhead with gorgeous markings and the perfect weight for his size. His fun and friendly personality oozes out of every pore making it clear that he loves people and is always ready to make new friends. He’s housetrained, fabulous on leash, notices but ignores other dogs we pass, and once in the park posed for pictures like a pro. Showing off his ‘sit’ in exchange for a treat which he takes nicely, he does that head tilt thing I just love. Off leash in the backyard Charlie plays a great game of fetch, bringing the ball right back and letting me take it out of his mouth for another throw. With other dogs in group he engages in brief play. Charlie is a big boy who jumps to play, loves to be with people, but has no idea that he’s not a Yorkie! Charlie will do best with an experienced person due to his size and need for some manners training, and is best in a home without children again due to his size and the fact that he jumps to play. He’s an awesome dog, and if you’re ready for exuberant hugs and lots of exercise and play time, Charlie is meant to be yours.
11/23/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Charlie came into our center after his owner handed him off to a member of the public that commented on how handsome he was. He was very loose and wiggly upon intake, allowed all handling and was extremely social, enjoying all hugs, kisses, petting by staff. Charlie pulled on leash for his relief walk. He continually jumped hard on assessor during Look item, not allowing assessment item to be conducted. Charlie was focused on other stimuli during Sensitivity item, sniffing the floor, body soft, tail wag. He was distracted and unresponsive during Tag, often running ahead of leash. Charlie was difficult to position for Squeeze item, oftentimes jumping up hard on assessor, but took correction. Once positioned, he quickly moved his paw away on first Squeeze attempt, then jumped his body away so unable to hold paw on second attempt. Charlie took Toy away, body neutral. When off leash with other dogs, Charlie greets the female helper politely. He engages briefly in play when solicited. He is a bit sexually motivated and makes an attempt to mount when the helper dog stops soliciting play. Due to his size and strength and hard jumping, the Behavior Team feels Charlie would do best with an Experienced adopter that does not have children. He may benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners and not to jump up. Charlie may benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of walks, runs, exercise, play, as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog is active and focused on other stimuli available. His body is soft, tail wag. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls paw back. Squeeze 2: 3. Dog is soft in body and eye, and moves his legs/body so that the Assessor is unable to hold the paw Toy 1: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy, body neutral. No growling or stiffness. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Charlie greets the female helper politely. He engages briefly in play when solicited. He is a bit sexually motivated and makes an attempt to mount when the helper dog stops soliciting play.
