Our Jordache is not a “designer” dog but a star anyway. Although a bit on the thin side, she is beautiful and athletic looking. Her luminous eyes steal the show.They really speak to me when she has a toy in her mouth, show her love for it but also the desire to share it with me, inviting me into her game. She is a real temptress ! Jordache is so eager to live and have fun that she forgets the limp affecting her left hind. She runs and jumps. She is having a ball in the yard, leash free, doing what she wants to do.. She meets another dog through the pen’s gate.She is watching in awe. He has a ball and she does not….She wags her tail watching him playing…She very much would like to join him… Jordache is not all about play.She comes when called, sits on command and takes treats nicely from my hand. She loves a butt scratch that yields a little dance and she poses her head in my lap for caresses. It is a delight to see her head down and her eyes up, all on me.She has that guilty look….Who would think that gorgeous Jordache was found abandoned in an alley, tied to a fence, her neck tightly wrapped with 5 pounds of heavy chains and a padlock…? She was welcoming of the officers who came to free her and let them patiently cut though the metal. We are told that once free, Jordache went into a happy dance, leaping into the air and celebrating her freeedom. She was given food and even a bath and spent a peaceful night chewing on a toy. Jordache is a tomboy with a girly heart.I hope that her future holds a better, safer and happier life than the one she has had until now…She is a very special girl who will make an awesome forever best friend. Come and meet her at the Manhattan Care Center. Start a new page in your life and hers….
Meet Jordache!! This blue beauty is very loving and sweet, but unfortunately has an injured leg. Jordache’s leg appears incredibly painful, as she is currently not bearing weight when walking and has escalated to grow and snap when her leg is touched. Jordache will need a medical follow up including x-rays to evaluate her injury. She is a nice girl, that just needs some care and a whole lot of love!
Jordache walks calmly on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. She was calm and relaxed during handling. We skip the tag interaction and used the flank squeeze instead of paw squeeze because of the dog medical condition. During the resources she was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. Jordache was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful.
Jordache did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an Average home. Please note that Jordache is being treated for kennel cough at the time of the assessment, and this may be influencing the behavior she is offereing.
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, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Flank squeeze 1. Dog does not respond at all.
