04/20/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
The dog was very nervous with tail tucked upon arrival. She responded well with happy voice and didn’t show any aggressive. She was very difficult to place into the van due to nervousness. She was a bit aloof and pulled on the the leash to try to get away from people.
04/30/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Zoey is a middle-aged lady of mixed lineage who was recently brought to the Manhattan Care Center. The Boxer line clearly dominates her ancestry. She is quite a friendly gal, welcoming in her kennel and who is eager to stretch her legs and roam free in an open space. She is thin and very hungry but will sit for treats upon request. She pulls on the leash and does her business after a while. Her den is clean and orderly. She meets other dogs uneventfully and is rather shy in playgroups, keeping to herself and watching others play. Zoey has been deprived and although it shows in her behavior, she has kept her ties with us, humans. She is not all about survival. Give her a welcoming home, a loving and caring owner and she will bounce back to being what she was always meant to be…a cherished pet, a forever best friend. Will you make Zoey’s dream come true? Come at the Manhattan Care Center and take her home with you. A volunteer updates: Now that Zoey is “filling up” while at the care center, she is looking more and more like a Boxer, although yes, I know, she is a mix. She is definitively less needy and food-searching and more interested in playing ball as well as smooching with her caretaker. She is quite a good “catcher” and I bet, someone, during some brighter days in her life, must have tossed her a ball and brought some joy to her life. It’s “coming back” to Zoey…better days when she maybe was loved, cared for and fed…until chance turned. It is not too late. Beautiful Zoey is still here, with us, at the Manhattan Care Center. Take her home with you, wake up the dream and make it a reality. Zoey will be thankful for ever and ever.
04/23/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zoey pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. She was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. Zoey was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She ate faster, was stiff and very difficult to push out of the food bowl, but did not growl, snap or bite. Zoey was not interested in toys but took the rawhide away but had soft body language. Zoey is an active dog she need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. She showed a bit of concern during the food bowl test bit did not escalate to a growl or bite. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. 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.) She is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Food 3. Dog gulps food, begins to eat faster and with bigger bites, body stiff. She does not lift head when hand is applied to cheek. Toy: 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place his body between you and the rawhide. Dog-dog: With other dogs off-leash, Zoey she did not want to approaches other dogs.
04/27/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Zoey will sniff to greet then avoid other dogs. She appears very uncomfortable when in the presence of other dogs. If approached, she will correct any dog who attempts to interact. During an interaction with a small dog (Maltese), Zoey snarled and lunged toward the dog twice. No off-leash interaction was permitted. Due to this reaction we advise against a home with small dogs or where Zoey will have access to small dogs.
