A shelter staff member writes: How cute is Waverly?! She was brought to our shelter as a stray, so we do not know anything about her behavior in her past. She has been nervous and tense since being in the care center, but with a slow approach, she received all medical handling and her SAFER. Waverly would like to start living a healthy lifestyle. Contact Brooklyn New Hope if you can help Waverly make the change!

Behavior: Experience, No Children
Waverly was brought in as a stray surrender, so her past behavior in a home is unknown. At intake she was reported to be somewhat fearful towards handling but enjoyed petting although she did not want to be picked up. Waverly was also reported to be very tense and nervous during her medical exam, but was tolerant of all handling. During SAFER Waverly was not very attention seeking, and was shy of sudden movements around her head and neck area, but with a slow approach she allowed the assessor to conduct each handling item without issue. She was relaxed during the tag interaction, and was easy to handle when engaged with food, toys and rawhides items. Waverly was reluctant to being picked up, and needs a slow approach during introductions, so an experienced adopter with no children is recommended.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
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 licks.
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft.
Squeeze 1 & 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back.
Food: 1. Dog lifts head and ceases eating when you reach to pull the bowl away or push her out.
Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog smells, then turns away.
Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide, dog smells, then turns away.
Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Waverly is tolerant of other dogs in the yard but does not want to engage with other dogs in the yard.
