11/19/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: He may not have wings, but to me, beautiful Kowan is an angel in dog’s clothing, practically perfect in every way! He’s soft and affectionate, well-trained and wonderfully behaved, gorgeous, gentle and simply the sweetest boy you’ll ever meet. Kowan was recently the victim of a fight and still has a few bumps and scratches to show for his ordeal, but his naturally handsome good looks shine through as brightly as ever, and it’s such a pleasure to capture that precious pouty face on camera. Kowan is the ideal model; trotting over when called, sitting politely to lick treats from my hand and even shaking paw on request, he enjoys petting and lets me hold and kiss him as much as I please. The elevator is a no-go scary zone so we take the stairs instead, and he proves to be a good, seemingly house-trained leash walker who ‘goes’ as soon as we step outside, then quickly moves on to exploration and socializing, greeting each passing dog with amiable manners and light tail wags. Though he can be a bit shy on first meeting, Kowan has proven himself an easy-going playmate in group, and his behavior evaluation is filled with compliments and top-notch ‘scores’ on everything from handling to resource sharing. If there were a test for all-round awesomeness you can bet he’d ace that too, I just can’t say enough good things about my favorite chunky Oreo cookie, and to know Kowan is to love love LOVE him! Come on in to our Manhattan Care Center, experience his special angel magic for yourself and get ready to leave with the most loyal and loving best friend ever!

11/18/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Kowan came into the care center with a bite history involving another dog. When off leash he has shown interest when greeting–loose body and wagging tail. Once introduced, he is sexually motivated and will back away when correction is offered, but then will attempt to mount again. Kowan has not yet interacted off leash with another male. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, the behavior department recommends a pre-adoption interaction before placing him into a home with other dogs. Kowan is muzzled or safety reasons, due to having a bite history involving another dog. When off leash with another dog, Kowan rushes toward the female greeter dog. He displays mostly sexually motivated behavior, by immediately attempting to mount. In response to correction from the other dog, he briefly backs away before attempting to mount once again. 11/19: Kowan continues to display sexually motivated behavior by attempting to mount.
