A volunteer writes:
I was a bit hesitant to take Tuesday out for a walk. A very big girl at almost 110 pounds! So beautiful, though in her silvery dress. Her eyes are gentle, almost sad. They look at me very innocently. I open her door, talk to her.She is leashed easily, pulls a little and in no time and uneventfully, we are in the yard. Tuesday is wary of sudden moves and sounds. She jumps slightly. A soft word, a pet on the head and she calms down. She is fine with tethering for pictures taking and does not mind at all the eye of the camera. After a few laps in the yard, she settles by my side, sits as i ordered and accepts careful petting. A little treat is in order.She takes roast beef very gently from my hand. Tuesday is a gorgeous dog, with few calluses but healthy looking. Her coat is flawless. She is a masterpiece. She looks much more comfortable now, we are acquainted but she has still way to go to ease into the pulse of the care center. We walk back to her kennel Tuesday reentered without fuss. I caress her on the head, smoothen the wrinkles on her face and I get a lick in return. Tuesday, a magnificent Cane Corso is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center. Do not make her wait too long.
A : Possible mild hip dysplasia
P : Recc rads
MonitorBEHAVIOR: AVERAGE HOME
Tuesday walks calmly on leash. She was not sociable, and was more interested in the surroundings than the handler during the assessment. She was focused on objects in the room during handling. Tuesday was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Tuesday was not interested in toys or rawhide. She was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful.
Tuesday did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an Average home.
