A staff member writes: Next on our ACC runway is Cash. Cash is wearing a “Michael Paws” camouflage hat, carefully covering one eye to keep the ladies guessing. He is also wearing a blue bandana which complements his brindle coat perfectly. Cash can easily remove his hat and he is ready for a day at the dog park. He is great with other models (dogs) at the shelter and loves people too. He is an all around great dog, playful, obedient and lovable. If you’re interested in adopting Cash, come to Staten Island ACC and meet him
BEHAVIORAL EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Cash came into our center citing child in the home developing severe allergies. It is reported Cash gets along great with children and adults, friendly around strangers, exposed to small young children. Behavior around cats is unknown. It is reported Cash isn’t bothered if anyone touches his Food while eating. He is described as loving, affectionate, active and playful, loves to play fetch with wood branches, went running with the owner. Cash was friendly and sociable upon entering SAFER assessment room, rubbing on assessor affectionately. He shoulder rubbed and pulled out on all three Look attempts. Cash leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, open mouth, ears back, tail wagging. He was distracted during Tag game, unresponsive to touch. Cash did not pull his paw back on first Squeeze attempt, gently pulled back on second. He kept a firm grip on Toy, low vocalization with wagging tail. When off leash with other dogs, Cash is tolerant, playful and engaged in running play with a social female. The Behavior Team feels Cash would do well with an Experienced adopter. He will benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of walks, runs, exercise, and play to positively direct his enthusiasm.
