12/04/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Presenting Princess Sue, a princess that seems like she probably hasn’t been treated like one. She was found by NYPD with another dog in a yard, a far cry from a royal kingdom. She is very easy to walk on leash and takes treats softly, but doesn’t seem like she’s been taught commands. She is shy and timid, but has come out of her shell quite a bit since arriving and seems to very much want to connect with people. She makes soft eye contact (and her amber eyes are so beautiful!) and wags her tail when I approach her cage. She thoroughly sniffs the ground when we make our way around the block, but still checks in with me. When I take her in the yard, she’ll sit in front of me and rest her head on my lap. She isn’t cuddly yet, but lets me pet her all over and it sometimes seems to wind her up for a mini, bashful version of the zoomies! She seems to want to hop up next to me on the bench, but her nerves get in the way. Checking out a little dog through the fence sent her into a much less bashful version of the zoomies; she was very wiggly and seemed to want to play. Even after I put her back she continues to watch me as I come in and out with her neighbors and I can’t help but think she wants a person to call her own! She is very sweet and embodies a sort of vulnerability that makes it hard not to fall for her. Princess Sue is at Brooklyn ACC looking for someone that can give her the time, kindness and love she needs to realize she is royalty!
11/24/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Princess was surrendered to us due to biting her owner on the calf. Unfortunately, there is very limited information on how this bite occurred. So, we can only tell of the behavior observed while at the shelter with us. Princess pulls a bit when coming out of the kennel and does have slightly fearful body language (tail tucks, head low, ears back). Princess Sue allowed the assessor to conduct most items but did maintain stiff and fearful body language throughout most of the tactile portion. When on an on-leash dog interaction Princess Sue approached with submissive body language head and body low with ears back and tail at spine level. Due to the behavior demonstrated during the assessment the behavior department believes that Princess Sue can go to an experienced home with no children who can provide positive experiences and positive behavior modification. 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: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 2. Follows at end of leash, body tense, low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 2. Dog closes mouth, becomes tense. Flank squeeze 3. Dog closes mouth, begins to purse lips and becomes stiff Toy 1. No interest.
12/01/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Princess Sue greets politely and attempts to solicit play. She engages in play briefly with a playful male. 12/3 update: Princess Sue greets the other dog briefly but spends most of her time exploring her surroundings. 12/4 update: Princess Sue is a bit uncomfortable but greets both male and female appropriately. Eventually she becomes more comfortable and seems interested but overall she spends most of her time exploring her surroundings.
