Our dogs here at the care center are as diversified as we, New Yorkers are. What is handsome Simon’s background? Can you take a guess? He is so elegant and trim in his well groomed smoke color silky and fluffy coat? He owns a short fluffy mane, bright eyes, little ears , bowing to us and a beary smile splitting his face. His gait resembles the one of a wolf. I imagine that whoever will adopt wonderful Simon could always do a gene analysis and find out for real. Simon is an elderly gentleman found as a stray and brought by a good samaritan to the care center. He does not look his age, at all. He is glad to exit his kennel and walks beautifully on the leash. He is house trained and does not mark his territory although he sniffs a lot the ground , stretching our stroll time to the max. He enjoys the park and the sunshine and is happy to meet other dogs, big and small. Simon appreciates very much caresses and sweet talks and can sit on command. He likes treats and will sit at once for them. I like Simon.He is very good looking, well mannered, reserved although sociable and friendly, a calm gentleman l who could be a good match for a owner who wants a home buddy and a friendly companion. Simon is at the Manhattan Care Center.You might want to consider him as your next forever best friend.

Behavior – Average Home
Simon walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Simon was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Simon was not interested in toys or rawhide.
Simon did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Food: 1. Dog lifts head and ceases eating when you reach to pull the bowl away
Toy 1. No interest.
Rawhide 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: With other dogs off-leash, Simon enjoys the company of other dogs and will give appropriate correction to other dogs.
