02/19/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: “Follow the Leader” is her motto…a ball, a person or another dog…anything or anyone. Acadia, a very young gal who has seen very little of this world, will walk into anyone’s footstep. Although shy, she is naive and curious. A photographer, trying to snap her picture got her big lens smudged by Acadia’s red nose. She had to meet that huge “eye”…and “make friends”. Acadia is really cute, but poorly cared for and thin. She is lively, though and acts healthy, I guess because she is so young. She has a lovely underbite, sweet clear eyes and giant ears. She wants to meet other dogs in the street and is a gentle player in playgroups with her peers. She loves caresses, being carried and settling on a lap to get all the love she can get. I do not think that Acadia needs many words to describe how lovely she is. I doubt her life until now was the one of a spoiled and cherished puppy. It is quite obvious. Still, poor treatment has not spoiled or damaged her. She is full of life, curiosity, charm and sociability, all qualities we are looking for in a youngster. Adorable Acadia is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming to grow up with you, as your forever best friend.

02/17/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Acadia is interested in engaging in play with males and females, but may become pushy when soliciting. Based on observation made while in our care, a pre-adoption interaction is encouraged to ensure that a resident dog is comfortable with Acadia’s style of play and pushy solicitation. When off leash with other dogs, Acadia greets with a soft body and wagging tail. She is tolerant of mounting. 2/18 update: Acadia is interested in ongoing play and softly jumps and runs along when participating. She begins to become a bit persistant and pushy when another dog is less interested in play, continuing to follow and playfully jump on the other dog. 2/19 update: Acadia greets well but is a little tense with a playful female. She tolerates paw slaps but when the other dog takes off running Acadia chases after and tries to jump on top of her. However, when the other female ceases soliciting she begins to bark in her face and push her muzzle into her to her face to begin play again.
