12/20/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I totally fell for Hawk when I saw how gorgeous he was but mostly when he came to lean against my legs for caresses and hugs. Hawk is a beautiful Cane Corso found as a stray, much too thin for his breed, a tad weak on his hinds and dressed in a magnificent shiny ebony coat. His eyes are pure African amber and look right into mine.. He reminds me of a big feline without mustaches and I call him secretly Felix the cat… As expected, Hawk is VERY hungry but will sit for treats. He does not really play ball. He seems a little shy at times but feels quickly better when he realizes I am a friend. Hawk walks nicely on the leash and does not mind other dogs passing by our pen. He seems very much house trained and does not mark his territory. Hawk is a beauty that was unfortunately neglected by his former owners. It is not too late to change things around if you adopt or foster this gentleman and give him the chance of his life..LIFE as a beloved, cared for and respected pet…Love and loyalty you will get in return…. Come and meet Hawk at the Manhattan Care Center and make him yours, for ever..
12/17/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Hawk pulls a bit on the leash. He was not sociable, and was more interested in the surroundings than the handler during the assessment. Hawk was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He was stiff and snapped at the assess-a-hand during the toy. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with an experienced adopter without children. Hawk may require positive reinforcement behavior modification to address his guarding behavior. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. 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: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 4. Dog snaps.
