07/19/15 19:49 Behavior during intake: This dog did seem to be nervous during intake. She was hard body and shaking a little bit. The dog did allow for a collar and a photo with no issue. The photo was taken at the front desk because the admissions room had another dog.
07/22/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I knew I would like Sidney the moment I spotted her in her arrival kennel. She was quite scared when she came in and gave me a wary look as I opened her door. She accepted my leash right away but walked tail between her legs, mousy, uncomfortable and pacing through the three open pens…What a beautiful and elegant female, perfectly made and dressed, healthy and so intuitive looking. She seemed to be taking her cues from me and not listening blindly to her fears…She came to sit by my side, accepted my caresses, a bow around her neck and even treats that she had at first refused. I started running. Sidney tried to catch me. We had a little game.. Sidney was slowly coming out of her shell. I showed her a ball and that was it….Her face lit up, her eyes sparkled, her mouth opened into a large smile…Her tail was out and wagging. She sat, full of expectations… What a gorgeous and lively girl ! Sidney is as fast as a Cheetah and a great catcher. She retrieves and does not mind to share the ball. The way she looks and the way she acts….Yes, she was a family dog, no doubt about it. I really love Sidney, her beauty, her playfulness and her “intelligence” if we can say so about a dog. She will most likely make a very loving and loyal companion if she is given a chance to live a long life. Sidney is at the Manhattan Care Center. Come , meet her, fall in love and take her home as your forever best friend.
07/23/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sidney was shy but friendly during the assessment- when given a moment to warm up to the assessor, approached with a neutral body. She was a bit distracted during portions of the handling items during the assessment and was a bit fearful at time but allowed all handling to be conducted. Sidney was calm and relaxed when playing tag with assessor. She did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl once and then ceased eating all together. She was easy to handle when chewing on toys and rawhides. Sidney was brought to the care center as a stray; upon intake, she seemed nervous, had a stiff body and was trembling, but allowed all handling to be conducted. She was a bit shy throughout the assessment but allowed all handling to be conducted with ease. The Behavior Department feels Sidney can go to an average home that understands she may need some time to warm up to new people and environments as her own pace. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1.
