A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: I did not understand at first why she was named Candi as our first encounter was ALL about play. I “got it” as we met again the next day. Yes, Candi loves to run after and catch tennis balls. The swimming pool is her friend, too! She is quite enthusiastic and athletic and knows what she wants. She could play for hours and hours and will demand more playtime. She is vocal expressing her joy, and concern over losing her toy. Our second time together was very different. Although still very playful, Candi “made use” of her stunning blue eyes and soft manners to ask for caresses and hugs and even gave kisses. She was a totally different pooch or after all, the same showing that she is all around a great pet to spend time with and have as a forever best friend. Candi is an excellent walker, likely house trained and seems to like well behaved dogs rather than the pushy ones. She is a playful, friendly, a little bold and affectionate gal who would love an active owner or family she will gift with her happy personality and spunk. Come and meet Candi soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment: 18-Jun-2018
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. Allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Paw squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back.
Paw squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pull back.
Flank squeeze 1: Item not conducted
Flank squeeze 2: Item not conducted
Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. Dog does not place his/her body between you and the toy.
Summary: Candi quickly approached the assessor with a soft body. She was social throughout the assessment, allowed all handling, and displayed no concerning behaviors.
PLAY GROUP :
Candi has appeared tolerant of calm approach from other dogs. She has become uncomfortable with and offered correction for play behavior. Based on this observation, Candi may be more comfortable given slow introductions to respectful dogs.
6/17: When introduced to off leash to the male helper dog, Candi mostly keeps to self, only sniffing from a distance.
6/18-20: Candi greets other dogs politely. She offers correction for play.
6/21-6/24: Candi greets politely.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Candi so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
