A volunteer writes: Charlie is often seen strolling around the block or in Jefferson park, flanked by a volunteer who has always glowing comments to make about him… Charlie is quite handsome, trim, dandy looking and very attractive despite his “bad” eye that earned him at first the given name of Cyclopes. Many people own only one eye and are very successful in life. Charlie, really should not miss his chance at loving and being loved because of his disability. He is a pleasant companion, a great walker, house trained and cool with other dogs met. He is not a nuisance with the pigeons and is quite friendly to whoever wants to say hello to him. I was told that he was very sociable in playgroups with other dogs too. He sometimes has a mind of his own and will comply when he wants to. Sitting upon command and letting go of a ball for example. Or protesting to get more food or a toy…Sweet talks and petting straighten him up and Charlie promptly wiggles his body and wags his tail…He is a great trooper. Charlie is a great guy who I know will make an awesome companion. He is elegant, has humor, is friendly, affectionate and playful, all qualities that make a great forever friend…Just come and meet him at the Manhattan Care Center and see for yourself what a wonderful pooch he is.
07/19/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Charlie was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. He was calm and relaxed during handling. He engages in play, loose body, wags tail, mouth is open. Charlie was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl and his body was a bit stiff. He kept a firm grip on the toy, but his body was loose and wiggly. He kept a firm grip on the rawhide, body a bit stiff. Charlie was brought to the care center as a stray. Throughout the handling portion of the assessment, Charlie remained very social and friendly towards the assessor, trying to stay close, licking the assessors hands, tail wagging. He showed a slight potential to become possessive over food and rawhide, stiffening a bit during each test. The Behavior Department recommends Charlie go to an experienced home that is comfortable monitoring and positively modifying any possessive behaviors if they manifest in the home. Charlie would likely benefit from learning the “drop it” command and practicing trade-up games. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his 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: 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. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Licks assessor’s hand. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body a bit stiff. Dog lifts head after moderate pressure from hand to cheek. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Rawhide: 2. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip, body a bit stiff. Dog-dog: 2.
