08/13/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/13/16 19:17 Finder was able to get Asha’s attention with a dog treeat and she approached finder and willingly and hungrily took the treat. She put a dog leash on Asha and she led asha to her car which she willingly jumped into. She did not interact with any of the finders kids or dogs but saw the dog from a distance and was not phased nor did she show any reaction. Asha entered the shelter with a loose body, tail wagging and energetic and vibrant. She was hesitant when approach with scanner but she jumped into councilors lap and tried to give besos. She gets nervous when you do things above her head, when trying to collar she backs up and turns her head upwards but never shows signs of aggression and eventually allowed collar to be put on,
08/16/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Asha, Asha, where are you? Asha is hard to spot in her kennel. She is tiny and as dark as night. I see sparkling eyes, though…there you are. Asha is ready for me. Although she has crate feet and bent legs, Asha ambulates calmly on the leash. She does not yet know how to sit on command but is fine being tethered for pictures and outfitted with a scarf to look her best. She is so cute in her little black dress even though her body currently has some bald spots, and she needs to put on weight. What she doesn’t need, however, is lessons in how to show her love for humans. She is a very sweet lap dog, not overwhelming, just tender and gently needy, who enjoys to keep her body tight against mine. This one is a hugger. She will hug your heart that you will want to give your care and love, which will make a world of difference in Asha’s life. Adopting her will be the beginning of a fairy tale for both of you. Come and meet Asha at the Manhattan Care center. We are waiting for you.
08/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Asha pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, mouthy (light). Asha was overexcited during handling, jumping up, grabbing at the leash, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. She was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Asha shows minimal interest with toys. Asha is an active, jumpy and mouthy dog who requires a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that she can go to an experienced home who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, mouths the hand, but does not apply pressure. Or, dog licks hands while lips are long. 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 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy 1. Minimal interest. Dog may smell or lick toy, then turn away. Dog-to-dog: Asha arrived into our care as a stray, so there is no is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs. When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Asha is unsure of interaction, and flinches away from approach initially. Asha solciits play briefly as she becomes more comfortable. The behavior team feels that Asha could be considered into a home with another dog pending a successful pre adoption interaction and slow introductions.
