05/21/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/21/17 11:30 When Brushetta arrived at the ACC she already was muzzled. When The ACS took her out of the cage she became very stressed out. She was trying to get the leash off of her neck so she was throwing herself around. I was not able to collar, scan or take her picture.
05/25/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: When I asked a staff member about Bruschetta (referring to her as “the dog behind the blanket” because I couldn’t remember her name and we’re trying to minimize stress by making her kennel as much of a private den as possible!) the response I got was “She doesn’t want you to touch her…but I like her!” She is definitely a social caterpillar and the vulnerability she embodies combined with maybe the sweetest, most expressive face ever make it hard not to more-than-like her. She is very fearful and needs time and treats (lots of both!), but has made huge progress in her stay. She went from pulling like a little horse in an effort to run away from me on our first walk to propping her paws up on me every few moments to solicit petting on our last. It’s hard not to think (whether rational or not!) that given how poorly she’s doing in a strange environment, that she might be the same amount of amazing in one where she feels safe. The shelter is no place for Italian appetizers, caterpillars, butterflies, or a scared out of her mind dog…but maybe your place is 🙂 Bruschetta is at Brooklyn ACC looking for a place to make her cocoon!
05/24/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 5/21/17 Unaltered Female, Stray Other notes: Upon intake Bruschetta was very stressed out, she would try to get the leash from around her neck and throw herself around. No handling was conducted due to her behavior. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 5/21/17 Summary: Bruschetta would come out her kennel and walk on the leash with her body low. She appears to be uncomfortable or afraid in the shelter environment. She has not allowed handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Bruschetta is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see her owner surrender profile for a full summary of her behavior in her previous home. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Bruschetta initially keeps to herself in a group of calm male and female dogs. With further playgroup sessions, Bruschetta has become slightly more social. Bruschetta was brought in as a stray so her behavior around other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Bruschetta be placed with resident dogs that match her calm sociability. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/21/17: During her medical examination, Bruschetta didn’t allow to be touch and would try to bite. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Bruschetta has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has not allowed handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Bruschetta has attempted to snap during her stay in our care centers when uncomfortable; guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is recommended to assess behavior after decompression in a new home environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing or exposing Bruschetta to new and unfamiliar situations.
