09/21/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Azury is a slightly cross-eyed cutie pie! She was found tied to a tree, so we can’t tell you about her life up until that point, but the police officers that untied her, staff that gave her a name, and volunteers that have hung out with her can tell you this is one wiggly, playful, loving lady! She can be talkative in her cage, but I think she’s just saying she wants out; she’s gotta go (she seems housebroken), plus a cage is no place for a gal with energy to burn! Azury LOVES toys and couldn’t be cuter when she plays with them: she holds them in her mouth and rears up like a pony, tosses them and tries to catch them with her paws, and will basically act like a measly yellow tennis ball is a chunk of gold. She pulls some on leash but is easy to handle once she’s run around a bit. She loves treats almost as much as she loves toys and knows “sit.” She’s super friendly and affectionate and when I give her a kiss she gives me 20 in return! She’ll make herself at home on my lap, hit herself in the face with her tail when I pet her, and prop both paws on my shoulders from behind and smother me with love. Is your house lacking fun, sweetness and adorable-ness?? Azury might be just what you need…come see her at Brooklyn ACC!

09/12/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Azury was brought in as a stray so his past behavior around other dogs is unknown. When off leash at the Care Center, Azury initially rushes in to greet the helper dog with a bouncy, wiggly body. She is extremely hyper and solicits play with high energy but does respond to the handler’s interruptions and slows down. In a group of playful male and female dogs, Azury displays loose and wiggly body language but becomes nervous when the other dogs solicit play. With one play partner, Azury she engages in high energy, intense play and requires handler interruptions to maintain appropriate play. The Behavior Department recommends that Azury be placed in a home with dogs that are comfortable with her high energy play style and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted pre-adoption to ensure compatibility. 9/12: Azury initially rushes in to greet the helper dog with a bouncy, wiggly body. She is extremely hyper and solicits play with high energy but does respond to the handler’s interruptions and slows down. 9/13: Azury displays loose and wiggly body language when socializing with male and female dogs. She displays slightly bouncy body language but becomes nervous when the other dogs engage in play. 9/15: Azury displays high energy when greeting the other dogs. She continually barks and muzzle punches the gate. Once in the pen, she engages in high energy, intense play and requires handler interruptions to maintain appropriate play.
