07/12/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/12/15 19:05hrs Luciano appears to be a chocolate American Staffordshire around 3 years old. He was found as a stray running loose in Williamsbridge Oval Park. He allowed the Police Officers that found him to leash him without incident. During intake Luciano approached the Admissions Counselor with a loose body and wagging tail. When a hand was extended towards him, he moved away but then sniffed and allowed the Counselor to approach him. He accepted treats softly and understood the command sit. He was collared, scanned for a microchip (negative) and photographed without displaying any aggressive behavior.
07/15/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Luciano was curled up lying in front of his kennel, waiting quietly and each time I passed him I promised I’d be back. Finally it was his turn and when I leashed him and he stood up he took my breath away. He’s gorgeous!! He’s a hunk….and if we were in school he’d certainly be the boy all the girls would want to date, and the boy that all the other boys would want to be. His coat is a stunning mahogany color, his face both strong and mushy at the same time. He’s likely housetrained going potty as soon as we were out the door, and as he pulls hard on the leash we turn around and head for the backyard. Are you looking for a shortstop for your home team? If so, Luciano is your man! He LOVES playing ball, sits to wait for a throw never taking his eye off the ball, and brings it back for another toss. He can amuse himself with the ball…pawing it around the pen, picking it up for a good chomp (never destroying it – just chomping on it), and then bringing it to me for another throw. He’s awesome! He’s quiet and calm, wagging his tail when I give him a quick petting, but it’s all about the ball….happiest when he has a ball to play with and does his own ‘thing’. He wasn’t interested in the rope toy I tossed to him, but loved having a second ball to play with, alternating between the two, dropping one when I threw the other. Luciano needs some leash training as he’s a big boy who pulls; with positive reward based training he’ll learn easily. If you’re ready to toss a ball for Luciano then come meet him today. He’s ready to play any position you need him for, as long as he’s on your team.
07/22/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
7/22/15 Update Luciano has been showing concerning behavior when being returned to his kennel. When attempts are made to return him to his kennel, he will begin thrashing and alligator rolling to avoid entering his kennel. While he has not shown any aggression towards handlers, he is clearly distressed. Various methods have been tried to help him feel more comfortable returning to his kennel, but none have been successful. Due to welfare concerns, Luciano should be placed into a foster or adoptive home, and he should not be placed in a kennel-type environment. 7/15/15 SAFER Luciano was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up .
