A volunteer writes: All dogs are deserving of a good home, a healthy environment, a place where they can flourish and stand out with all those positive traits … And we all wish they had upbringing and so much more. But unfortunately that always is not the case, for one reason or another, these beautiful animals are subjected to an early environment that leave a scar that is hard to diminish, and sometimes harder to change. The old words, “It’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks”, is to often to true. So … With a good heart and a positive spirit, we can make that difference. Chastity is one of those very dogs, she came in as a stray and her background is all that we can see and take hold of. I noted while walking that Chastity is a dog that is oh so sweet, and willing to be part of my picture, as her walker. She only pulled some while we walked and lent herself to paying attention to my lead, she seems to be house trained, and knows exactly where to do her business. She’s got a beautiful coat, solid brown with a white tuft of hair on her chest. She does know some commands, like “Sit”, and “Paw”, and was eager to please my requests. You really have to experience her to find out how right this animal is to be brought into your life and home with your family. Wont you please come into our Center today, here in Brooklyn and meet with Chastity … It, for sure, is going to be one of the best decisions you’ve made in your life. Make that difference today.
Behavior: Experienced Home
SAFER: Chasity was brought in as a stray, and the finder stated Chasity was fearful during an initial approach, but easily warmed up and was said to be affectionate. During intake Chasity was reported to be friendly and affectionate. She gave paw and sat on command, and allowed all handling by an admissions counselor. During SAFER Chasity was very sociable and allowed the assessor to conduct each handling item without issue. Chasity did become a bit tense and could not be pushed out of the food bowl during the food test, but she did not growl or snap at the assess-a-hand. She only showed minimal interest in the toy items, and was easy to handle when chewing on the rawhide item. During the dog-dog interaction, Chasity was relaxed when approaching the helper dog, but was not playful.
