06/26/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/26/16 18:22 Carmel is a Shih Tzu mix that appears to be 2 years old. Finder noticed the dog roaming alone in a busy street and decided to bring him to ACC. Finder stated that Carmel allowed being picked up and was friendly. During intake Carmel was a bit fearful and wary. However with a slow approach he allowed being collard, scanned and photographed. He began to approach counselor and allowed being picked up.
Carmel might be the perfect dog for you if you are looking for…ALMOST ANY BREED. He has so many adorable features common to particular breeds, all wrapped up in one sweet guy! First, you see his sweet face, which reminded me of a yorkie, including that famous silky hair. Then you notice his adorable underbite – maybe a little shih tzu or even bulldog? My dog has an underbite too, so I’m very partial to this feature. Just a row of cute little white teeth poking out, giving him a bit of a pouty face. Then his loooong body. Dachshund (wiener dog)?? Seriously, he just keeps going and going! He reminded me of Slinky, the dog from Toy Story. Finally, his tail. And what a tail! Curled into almost a perfect circle, it definitely reads as pug. Whatever breeds came together to make this guy, the most important part of him is his awesome personality. Carmel is laidback and easygoing. He’s great on a leash, but he was also comfortable with me carrying him. Carmel told me the only thing that really gets him riled up is talking about his favorite baseball team, the Mets. When I met him, he was rocking a Mets dog collar. He says he’s been a lifelong fan, which is only 4 years (but more like 28 in dog years). Come meet Carmel at ACC today!
06/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Carmel walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Carmel stands his ground, barking and growling at assessor during the tag interaction. He was not interested in toys. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1.
