05/10/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Was Donna Karan named because she’s wearing such a beautiful, elegant, well groomed coat? Is she the fashionista of the doggie world? I do know that her coat is clean and shiny and an unusually gorgeous color I’m going to call ‘greige’. Stunning! She’s full figured and friendly, but can be a bit shy from time to time. We became friends quickly and off leash in a pen she put her paws in my lap letting me know she was ready to begin a relationship. How sweet is that? She continues to make overtures of friendship on her terms, and then settles by my side as I give her a butt scratch. I think I won her heart with that! Greeting other dogs with a happy wag of her tail, it’s clear that DK would love a play date. Not interested in my treats or playing ball, she’s happiest when there is another dog around, or she’s getting some loving. Back in the building we passed some cats in their carriers and DK leaned in with a softly wagging tail. Even when a cat hissed at her she seemed easy and OK. Maybe she likes cats? Clearly well taken care of, our Donna Karan is gorgeous, friendly and easy to be with. She may need a little time to acclimate to her new home, but given the time that she needs she’ll be a rockstar. Are you the one to welcome her home? Another volunteer writes: They say you’re never fully dressed without a smile and our lovely Donna Karan has a whole closet full of them! From shy simper to ear-to-ear grin to full-on beaming, her range of happy expressions are guaranteed to make you laugh and she loves to ‘accessorize’ with enthusiastic hugs and kisses too. Toys and treats hold no interest for Donna and her main focus in life is snuggling and socializing. When not smothering her person in smooches, she’s climbing her front paws up the fence in her eagerness to play with fellow pups and an active home where she can enjoy lots of attention from her human family and plenty of playtime with her canine friends would be this young beauty’s dream come true. Unconditional love never goes out of style and Donna Karan is a ‘one size fits all’ kind of gal who’d make a wonderful addition to any dog-savvy home. Ask to meet her today!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
5/12 Update Donna Karan is showing concerning behavior when being returned to her kennel. She is still social when out of her kennel but she is reactive being retruned to her kennel. At this time we are unable to a safely manage her behavior and stress level. At this time, she is not thriving in the care center and it is in her best interested to be moved into a stable home environment. 05/09 SAFER Donna Karan pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. She was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. Donna Karan was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. Donna Karan approaches the helper dog with his tail at spine level, body not stiff, eras relaxed, lip long.
