03/25/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Buddy is a sweet lab mix puppy, and has all the typical characteristics you’d expect! He’s energetic, loves to shred toys and chase pigeons, wags his tail non-stop, and loves to give kisses. Buddy pulls on the leash but walks very well on a harness and is learning quickly, seems to be housetrained, and is a very, very happy boy. When I took him to play outside today, he wasn’t too interested in chasing a ball– but he was VERY interested in climbing into my lap and trying to lick my face with just as much vigor as I had expected him to have for ball-chasing. This loving, playful, and joyful boy would do great with a new family who is ready to give him the exercise, structure, and most importantly, the love that he needs. Please come and see him at the Brooklyn ACC today!

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: On Buddy’s first day in Play Group, he was initially hyper motivated (barking and jumping on the fence) when greeting a novel female. He is introduced to her off leash with a muzzle, and he immediately mounts her, displaying a stiff body. As Buddy continues to participate in Play Group session, his posture becomes softer, and he able to explore his surroundings. He is uncomfortable, but tolerates a neuter male, in the pen with him. He is receptive to handler interruptions. Buddy was surrender as a stray so his past behavior with another dog is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends if Buddy is to be placed in a home with another dog that the resident dog is tolerant of mounting and matches Buddy’s calm demeanor. Introductions should be done slowly and under supervision. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/19/17 Observed Behavior – Buddy was Friendly, playful, allowed all handling during his medical examination.
ENERGY LEVEL: High level of energy; extremely anxious IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: 3/21/17 Buddy has been displaying concerning on-leash reactivity while being removed and returned to his kennel- barking and lunging towards other dogs. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter _X_Recommend no dog parks- Due to the concerning behaviors that Buddy has shown during playgroup (see PLAYGROUP SUMMARY), we feel that Buddy should not visit dog parks until he has had the opportunity to learn appropriate social skills when interacting with other dogs. The Behavior Department recommends that Buddy receive dog socialization session under the supervision of a certified trainer or behaviorist. POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: _X_ On-leash reactivity/Barrier frustration: (Buddy has displayed a form of barrier frustration when on leash around other dogs. This behavior may appear in a new home and will require reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Buddy associate other dogs with things he enjoys like toys or treats.)
