12/15/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/15/15 18:13 Manila A1060645 was found tied in the finder’s basement on 12/11/2015. She was being fed by multiple tenants in the building. The finder stated that Manila was not eating her food but was very friendly with all of the tenants. She was given a red blanket and she allowed to be pet by strangers. Behavior during intake Manila appears to be very thin. She was shy but allowed to be scanned(-) and collared, photographed. She allowed all handling and petting. She warmed up after a few mintues and took treats and wagged her tail.
12/19/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: She’s a tiny little girl clearly used up after providing lots of litters for who ever her owner was. She’s so scared in this new place… and although she was clearly not a pampered pet, she knew where she was, knew her person and knew what was expected of her. Her coat is thin, she’s underweight and is being fed an extra meal daily, her mammary curtain sways as she walks, and while she’s happy to be leashed to go outside to go potty she doesn’t welcome any touch. Her leash manners are lovely but her too long nails click on the pavement as we walk. Manila doesn’t trust right now. Off leash in a pen she comes towards me when I make kissy noises at her but walks past me. She growls as I take a picture. Life has not been kind to this little girl and her posture and manners clearly show a little girl who has been given no reason to welcome a person into her life. It’s never too late to change that, and with time, patience, and an incredibly slow approach, letting Manila figure it out on her own timetable, she may come to learn that people can be kind. I hope she gets that chance.
12/18/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Manila was a bit difficult to remove from her kennel (giving a low growl with a fearful body language). Manila is fearful of the shelter environment she walks with a low and fearful body language. She was fearful when the assessor tries to collar her. Manila retreat from the assessor while growling with a tense body, tuck tail. Manila was stiff and did not show social behavior during the assessment. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Manila was not interested in toys. She was cautious when approaching other dog, but showed no aggression. The behavior department feels that she 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. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with a fearful body language, tail tuck, ears back, mouth close. Helper: A1060697
