08/20/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/20/16 12:56 Bodhi A1086376 is a 2yr old male red & white AMPBT terrier mix who was found tied up in front of a residence in the Bronx a little while ago. A neighbor called 911 and the officers stated Bodhi was friendly and allowed them to pick him up into their vehicle. During intake Bodhi appeared very nervous/fearful/serious. He would approach and walk slowly with his tail between his legs and his head down but eyes wide & alert. He would touch my hand with his muzzle but then back away. Bodhi will flinch with sudden movements. He flinched when I scanned (-) and collared him but didn’t display any aggressive behaviors. Bodhi was then lifted into his kennel as he didn’t want to go in on his own.
09/01/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I have a soft spot for this little guy, Bohdi. He is on the thin side, and his chocolate coat needs some mending, but his gentle gaze and lovely smile fill my heart with warmth and almost draw tears from my eyes. Bohdi is little and timid, flinching with sudden noises and moves, also handshy. His tail is hiding and he backs off when I move too fast. We met a few times and I worked on his face, getting it used to my hand. Bohdi is doing a little better. He loves going on walks and is sitting hopeful behind his door. A lot of mixed feelings are going through this head. Excited to go out and afraid of the world. A real smile comes on his face and his eyes sparkle as he strolls around the block. He checks on me non stop, ” Am I doing good? I am so happy to be out and with you.” Bodhi is not at this point paying too much attention to his peers or the birds. He does his business with out marking. I have made my business to “discover” Bohdi. Will he “enlighten” me soon or later? I just have to be patient and I bet that I will soon find a treasure. Bohdi is at the Manhattan Care Center. A little guy in need of care and love who dreams of a real home and a human to cherish. A volunteer adds: Little Bodhi has made giant steps forward with the help of staff and volunteers who believed that he “could do better”. I am so happy to see him now going tail up and happy to the park with his caretaker. He has the same beautiful smile on his face. He has not lost his spirit, on the contrary, he is preparing himself to a new life lying ahead of him…with you as his forever best friend. Bodhi is a pocket Pittie, really cute, gentle, friendly and loving. A great buddy he will be if you give him a chance. Come and meet him soon.
08/22/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bodhi came to the care center as a stray so his behavior in a home is unknown. Upon intake, he appeared nervous, tail tucked. For his relief walk, Bodhi walked well on leash. Once in the assessment room, he appeared fearful, whining, trembling, and reluctant to approach. He averted his eyes during Look, body tense, trembling. For Sensitivity, Bohdi flinches at the touch, crouching, body tense and trembling. During Tag, he spun away, crouching and trembling. He did not pull back his paw on either Squeeze attempt. He displayed minimal interest in Toy, sniffing it. When approaching another dog on leash at the care center, Bohdi approached with tail low and wagging, body not stiff. The Behavior Team recommends Bohdi go to an Experienced home with no young children. As we have no history of him with children, Bohdi would benefit from an in depth interaction with any older children in the home. Bohdi will need a slow approach and slow introduction, and an initially quiet home. It is recommended Bodhi be given an appropriate period of decompression to help him acclimate to his new surroundings. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Bodhi to new and unfamiliar situations. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful, he is trembling; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2.

08/23/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Bodhi is initially unsure of approach, however opens up ond greets wih a soft body and small wag. He arrived into our care as a stray, so there is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs, and it is unknown how his behavior will translate into a home setting. The behavior team feels that Bodhi could potentially be adopted to a home with another dog pending a successful pre adoption interaction and slow introductions.
