06/01/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
6/1/15 Jewels’ family got her from a neighbor when she was a newborn puppy. They surrendered her due to cost, lack of time, allergies, a new baby, and because they’re moving. Jewels is outgoing and friendly with strangers. She lived with 2 children ages 3-8 and has been around lots of others. She’s relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. She plays somewhat rough and jumps up on adults and plays gently with children. She’s never bit anyone. She has playdates with dogs of all sizes, ages, and sexes. She’s relaxed, playful, tolerant, and plays exuberantly with them. She sniffs the cats that live in her neighborhood and is gentle with them. Jewels chewed at the wall while alone once 3 months ago but hasn’t behavior incidents since. She doesn’t mind storms. She’s friendly with strangers that approach her family. She barks when they come to the door but are friendly once they come into her home. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her furniture, holds/restrains her, or wakes her up. She’s used to being brushed and bathed, having her nails trimmed, having her teeth brushed, and having her ears cleaned at the groomer and reportedly does well. Jewels’ family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, excitable, a fast learner, and high energy. She follows her family around. She plays with balls and chew toys. She likes playing catch, fetch, and chase. She often spends time loose outside at a park around groups of children playing sports/games. She watches and does not interrupt/try to take their ball, but enjoys being pet and playing fetch with them with her balls during breaks. Jewels lived inside. She ate dry and wet Purina food and got peanut butter, carrots, cucumbers, and bacon as treats. She’s housetrained and doesn’t have accidents. She potties outside in grass. She’s well-behaved when home alone with or without a baby gate containing her to a room. She’s well-behaved alone in a yard with a 3′ fence made of mental posts/gates. She knows sit, down, come, stay, and drop it, and she waits until she’s told it’s ok to eat. She went for slow and brisk walks on her leash and played loose in the yard and at the park. She pulls on her leash. Off leash, she wanders but comes when called. Jewel had a loose wiggly body, wagging tail, and open mouth during handling-scan (positive), collar, petting, switching leashes, pictures, and putting in kennel. She leaned into us while we pet her.

A volunteer writes: Jewels with an s was my star of the day. This silverish young girl, who has not yet reached her first birthday, stole my heart. I so wish she was mine to keep forever as my loyal friend… Jewels was left with us as her family is moving. She comes with the best recommendations I have ever read…Two major ones:she is GREAT with kids (even unknown to her) and dogs of all sizes and sexes. She would even be tolerant of cats. To make the picture even more perfect…She would be a fast learner…Little Einstein … The list of compliments is quite long and can be obtained at the front desk…Jewels is gorgeous and has been outstandingly cared for. She is borderline plump, wears a thick pewter color coat, dares you with laughing eyes and asks with an open mouth: what’s next? Jewels is really lively, full of expectations and hope for a good time and a bright future…She believes in us, her peers and that life will go on for ever, beautiful and happy. That is a great spirit and what I really love about her. Spending time with Jewels is fun. She is a strong girl who pulls excitedly while walking. She does not mouth or “go for the leash”. She is very much house trained as indicated by her former master and sits at once upon command. She gives a paw and leaps after a tennis ball that she retrieves in my hand. Jewels does not know what guarding is…She is always happy to meet other dogs and play bows even to the barking ones. Jewels is gorgeous, healthy, silly, full of life, well mannered although lively , sociable, super friendly and affectionate. She is an amazing young girl, barely nine months of age who will be the pride and the joy of her new owner or family. Do not make her wait too long..Run to the Manhattan Care Center and make her yours.
06/03/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jewels came to us as an owner surrender. It is reported she lived with children ages 3-8 and has been in playdates with dogs of all sizes and has sniffed cats in the neighborhood while on walks. Once when left alone, owner reports Jewels chewed at the wall, it was not reported how long she was left alone. Jewels pulled very hard on leash. She showed very high energy in the SAFER assessment room and was hard to position, jumping up for first two Look attempts, but averting eyes and staying still for third attempt. Jewels displayed high energy and movement during Sensitivity item, panting with ears back and soft body, but eventually accepted touch. She was unconnected to the assessor during Tag, but by third pass soft popped her body in play. Jewels put her mouth on assessor’s hand with no pressure during Squeeze. While waiting for food, Jewels began jumping on assistant and chewing leash. She stiffened her body and raised her lip on Food item. Jewels kept a firm hold on Toy with a stiff body,but did not take it away. She froze and growled with rawhide. Off leash with other dogs, Jewels needed time to warm up but eventually played with a male dog. The Behavior Team feels that due to her potential for possessive behaviors with resources, she must be adopted to an Experienced home with no children. Jewels may also benefit from mental and physical enrichment such as daily walks, exercise as well as Kongs and Nylabones to positively direct her high energy as well as deflect anxiety if left alone. She may also benefit from obedience classes to learn basic manners in regards to jumping up, chewing leash, & pulling. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, body soft. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her ears are back, body is soft, panting. 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.) She is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 / 2: 2. Dog gently places her open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure. Food 4. Dog freezes and raised lip. Toy 3. Dog keeps a firm hold. Her body is stiff. Rawhide 4. Dog freezes and growls.
