07/02/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Being invisible is especially hard to pull off when you are a big girl like Cheetah, but that didn’t stop her from trying! For the first few days after her arrival I would always see Cheetah making herself one with the wall, or cowered under her Kuranda bed. Her head pancaked against the floor and her back legs trembling. Though she kept second guessing herself and retreating to the back, with the help of some treats the day finally came when Cheetah and I were venturing out! She paced around the yard, relieved herself (she seems to hold it in forever!), and occasionally checked in for a treat, only to drop it – she was overwhelmed. She has since warmed up tremendously. Even with her cherry eye, she is majestic. She is still very shy and timid, but will readily approach me, wiggle her nub of a tail, eagerly takes treats and even solicits petting! She seems to really enjoy butt scratches and leans into my hand when I scratch behind her ear. Cheetah has shown me her darling play bow, but retreats back into bashfulness when it comes time to follow through with any play. We’ve met several dogs through the fence and she has been interested and seems cautious, but friendly. Cheetah has shown me glimpses of the wiggly, incredibly sweet girl that’s almost ready to come out of her shell. She is at Brooklyn ACC, becoming more brave by the day, and waiting for that lucky person that will call her their own!

Cheetah came to us on 6/24/15. Upon intake it was stated that Cheetah was very fearful and can be heard growling. She was very fearful when entering the behavior room with trembling body language. She allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items, but became very tense and uncomfortable during the squeeze test. Cheetah showed some concerning behavior during the food bowl test – stiffening and freezing, but did not snap at or bite the assess-a-hand. She only displayed minimal interest in the toy or rawhide items on this portion of the assessment. The behavior department believes that Cheetah would do best if placed with a rescue. Look: 2.
