A volunteer writes:
Mariely is just a babe at eight months of age. Well cared for until her abandonment and now housed in a kennel amidst zillions of other dogs….One can imagine how scary it can be for a puppy. Mariely is indeed a bit wary of people coming at her or other dogs passing by. Spend some time with her and she will be soon enough, labeled a velcro dog who just would stay in your arms and on your lap for ever and ever, receiving and dispensing kisses. Mariely is a very pretty and petite girl. I doubt she will ever be a big dog. She is healthy looking, trim and wears a perfectly groomed latte coat. I love her right ear that makes her look like she wears a beret. She wears a natural white scarf and has a lucky spot on the forehead. Mariely pulls a little on the leash and eliminates as soon as we reach the street. She does come when called and can sit for treats. Mariely is a very endearing little girl we have at the Manhattan Care Center. She dreams to belong and hopes that soon enough, someone will fall in love with her and take her home as his or her forever best friend.
A volunteer updates:
Do I wonder why I am still here at the care center? Yes and no. I am still a baby at eight month of age. I am pretty, really pretty with my greenish eyes and my silly ears. I am quite affectionate. I love to play. I even did good on my behavioral evaluation. On the other hand… I know that I pull on the leash (that is because I do not belong to a tight space), I am not really house trained (give me the opportunity to see the street three times a day and I will be), I mouth a little and sometimes bark in my den. Just understand, I so badly want to be out… with you… and run, play, jump, do all what puppies do to grow up into healthy and happy adults. I have so many qualities that you have no idea about! I am a star in playgroups with other dogs. I am great at handling shy and boisterous ones. That is a quality not every dog has. Please, look at me! I am still a puppy who needs a teacher to show me the ropes and mostly a master or family who will love me and help me bloom into the BEST forever best friend in the whole wide world! I am counting on you. I will be waiting for that wonderful day when I will be yours, at last.

Mariely came to us as a stray via NYPD. She pulled a bit on leash during relief walk and upon entering assessment room. During the Look portion of the assessment, Mariely jumped up playfully but did allow her head to be held and cupped loosely while in the jump up position. She became overly excited quickly during Tag and continually mouthed and tugged the leash, taking some time to settle but eventually did calm down afterwards. Mariely allowed the food bowl to be moved away from her while she was eating, and also easily relinquished both toy and rawhide. Mariely is a strong, friendly, and playful dog. Due to her easily excitable behavior and high arousal during Tag, it is the recommendation of the Behavior Department that Mariely may be adopted by an average owner with no very young children. She may benefit from daily stimulation in the form of exercise and brisk walks.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body.
Tag: 3. Dog responds with her tail high, ears forward. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw, licks assessor’s hand.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
Food 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish’s movement. Dog’s body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. She lifts her head when hand is pushed against her cheek.
Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Rawhide 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the rawhide.
On 1/18/2015 Mariely came to us as a stray via NYPD.A Staff member wrote “This dog was barking a lot but is friendly”. The Assistant’s observation: strong playful pulls on leash to the assessment room. During the assessment Mariely appeared playful jumping up to lick the Assessor’s face. She allowed the Assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items and accepted handling well. She would playfully grab the leash for a game of tug-of-war. When pushed away by the assess-a-hand Mariely did not lift her head from the food bowl. She kept a firm grip on a rawhide. Mariely is a strong friendly and playful dog that should be a good family pet. It is the recommendation of the Behavior Department Mariely may be adopted by an average owner who can handle a stronger dog. She may benefit from daily stimulation in the form of exercise and brisk walks.
