07/02/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/02/15 19:50 Roxanne wandered into her finder’s apt. She cared for her for 2 days. She reports that she’s very friendly and playful with her human family (her, her husband, and their 3 and 11 year old children). She’s gentle with the children. They introduced them to 3 other medium sized dogs, both male and female. She respected their space. When the approached and tried to play with her she snapped and growled but didn’t bite them. She allowed her finders to bathe her. Her skin looks a little dry. Roxanne had a very loose, wiggly body during handling-scan (-), collar, switching leashes, petting, positioning for pictures. She jumped up and stood/leaned against us while we pet her. When we stooped down, she cuddled up to us very close. She play bowed often in such a goofy way that all staff members around were laughing and couldn’t resist visiting with her. She took treats gently. She walked into her kennel on her own with a little encouragement. There was a medium sized dog nearby in the lobby and she ignored him.
07/08/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: A staff told me that she is such a good girl… I had to see for myself, of course. Roxanne is quite a small dog, pretty and petite, so girlie too. Her markings are lovely and her hair is semi long in places. She owns a beautiful smile and laughing eyes. She is all together a very attractive and dear little gal who I think would fit in any setting, ready to begin her life with a new owner or family right from the start, right from her exit from the Manhattan Care Center. Why do I say this? For a start, she aced her behavioral evaluation and I was told that she was very good in playgroups with other dogs. I spent time with her, and could see that she was easy going, attuned to me, obedient, may be house trained and mostly very loving and sociable. Roxanne is adorable, a little china doll dressed in a perfect silver and white dress, happy and engaging-looking and always wagging her tail. She sits so perfectly on command, comes when called, and loves but loves to be hugged and caressed. Playful she is too. Tag and ball-playing seem to be favorite games that generate an even larger smile on her face… I hope that my comments about Roxanne and her pretty face will convince you to meet her at the care center. She is a keeper… a lovely forever best friend.
