05/25/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Mr. Manners, aka Ziggy, aka Gorgeous, is here to answer all your burning canine etiquette questions. How should a dog walk? Well, it looks like this: The leash slack, perfectly at his walker’s knee. Cleanliness? No mess in the kennel, relieving himself immediately outside. Table manners? He would never eat while standing, instead sitting for treats (OK, we’ll admit he eats with his mouth open, occasionally.) Making others feel comfortable? Greet all dogs and people with the grace and good will Ziggy does, tail wagging and generous kisses. This is an extraordinary dog. This is a dog who is stopped at every turn in the park to be praised. He is warm, he is lovely, he is calm and friendly and loving and everything anyone could ask for in a pet. And we can only imagine the thank you note he will write when you take him home! We could not love this dog more. He is big, but he is so extraordinarily gentle, the kind of dog that any family would be so grateful to have. Adopt him and all the other dogs in your neighborhood will bow their heads in shame–or sign up for etiquette lessons with him ASAP! Another volunteer writes: Ziggy, the Black Stallion, pitch black, as dark as the darkest night, is a beauty that you will find hard to match. So, why is Ziggy still here? Well, he is Big, Black and Beautiful, a BBB dog.They are always hard to place. And yet, he is such a great boy, asking for a toy, a ball or a treat with a hanging tongue and hopeful eyes. He plays so well and does not guard his stuff. He is quite strong, true, but such a tender soul, a charmer and a lover. I have become very fond of him as I have walked him now so many times. Ziggy is an energetic boy, a large dog who needs some entertainment but he is at an age when wisdom has started to settle. He is not a silly and all-over-the-place puppy. He knows that there is a time to play and a time to rest… I could go on and on about Ziggy who seems to have been well cared for by his former owner who lost his home. Just come and see for yourself, meet our boy and you will understand what I am talking about. The eighth marvel of the world. Ziggy is at the Manhattan Care Center.
07/10/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
During the re-safer 7-10-15 Ziggy was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. He was overexcited during handling, jumping up, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Ziggy was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He growled and bit the assess-a-hand during the food bowl test. He took the toy with a soft body language and was not interested in rawhide. Ziggy is extremely high energy dog he needs a few toys that require him to think. Toys like Kong’s and ice Cubes load with treats to keeping him occupied for a while. Ziggy may require positive reinforcement behavior modification to address this food guarding behavior. In addition to food behavior modification protocol we recommend teaching Ziggy “Drop It” and trade-up games. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. 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: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food: 5. Dog tries to bite. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Ziggy is social and playful. He engages in bouts of rough play but is respectful of dogs who are not interested or not playful.
