03/10/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: There are a few ways to know that spring’s around the corner. The rains roll in, the soil softens, and song birds reappear in droves, a tufted titmouse for every tree. But the telltale sign is the crocus. A violet cup with a golden center like a palm holding a flame. 10 month-old Nana is as young and as bright as any first bloom. She is a petite 34 pounds with eyes like emeralds and a coat of crimson, and when I wrap her up in a purple scarf all her colors spring to life. Nana joins us at the shelter through no fault of her own. Her family’s home was lost in a fire and sweet Nana, thankfully safe and sound, was without a place to go. Though only 10 months (not even a blossom, merely a bud) Nana is self-composed and a little bit serious. This may be her first spring but behind her lovely gaze is curiosity, wonder, and strength mixed in with worry. And such a pretty bud should have no worries in mind at all. Nana walks beautifully on leash, waits for her treats patiently and takes them gently, and when it’s time to hop back into her kennel she does so without a qualm. The crocus may be beautiful, delicate, and young, but it is also made to weather the storm. And each time it does, rising up from the ground like a phoenix from the fire, it reminds us of everything good. Of hope and of second chances. And that life begins again. Nana is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
03/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY:None 3/7/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/9/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 3. Dog is not fearful and is struggling to get away. The dog is not focused and is in constant movement, unconnected to the Assessor, whining and pulling towards the exit. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, focused on exit. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Nana appeared anxious in the assessment room, whining during her time in the room. She displayed some social behavior towards the assessor but was mostly focused on the exit and leaving the room. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: Nana engages playfully with other large dogs in the care center. Nana has displayed a concerning amount of over-arousal in the presence of smaller dogs, and may succeed best with slow introductions to other playful large dogs in a future home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/7/17 During her initial medical exam, Nana was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Nana so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to Nana’s response to some of the SAFER handling items, specifically squeeze, we feel she may be intimidated by small children. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful (Though observed to be human-social, Nana may need time to warm up to the handler as she initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Nana to interact at her own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations.) _X_Anxiety (Nana has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, whining continually through the SAFER and at other time in the care center and seeking exits. This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have no known history on Nana, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. Force-free, positive reinforcement training should be used for any behaviors that occur in the home.)

Nana engages playfully with other large dogs in the care center.
