A volunteer writes: Pop the cork, it’s time to celebrate! I’ve just met the pup of my dreams. 3 year-old Champagne is so much more than a party in a glass. First, there’s his coat, like cinnamon swirled with sugar, with that beautiful, black muzzle added just to spice things up. Then there are those eyes. A mesmerizing hazel, dark like a freshly baked brownie, and every single bit as warm and inviting. Then — and here’s the kicker — there are Champagne’s picture-perfect manners. Our celebratory boy walks beautifully on leash, sits for his treats, and has no problem with you taking away even his favorite toys. Speaking of toys — he loves them! He can amuse himself with one forever, but of course he’d rather you get in on the action. Being so full of fun and life, and such a lover of people, Champagne of course is none too fond of his kennel. He barks quite a bit but, well, just like his namesake, he’s only waiting, waiting, waiting to come out! And of course that’s how Champagne’s meant to be enjoyed. Our Champagne is sweet, bubbly, delicious, and bright ,and you needn’t wait for a special occasion to meet him. He’s ready to be loved today. Champagne is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
01/19/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 1/16/17 Unaltered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 1/19/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He 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. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy. No growling or stiffness. Summary: Champagne displayed no behavioral concerns on his assessment. When in his kennel, Champagne lunges, growls, and barks. Once out of his kennel he allows handling and solicits attention. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with a female dog Champagne ignores interaction and explores the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/16/17 During his initial medical exam, Champagne was tense and nervous. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration (Champagne has been observed to bark, growl, and lunge when in his kennel. Once outside of the kennel, Champagne appears friendly and social. He may be reactive behind boundaries such as a fenced in yard.) _X_Kennel presence (While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Champagne may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating in his kennel. We recommend potential adopters be comfortable managing this behavior and keeping themselves safe in any similar future situations.)
01/18/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Champagne is tolerant of female dogs (he has not yet been introduced to a male dog) but does not interact or engage beyond a brief greeting. He arrived at the care center as a stray, so any in-home behaviors with other dogs are unknown. The behavior department recommends slow, structrued introductions if placing Champagne into a home with other dogs. 1/18: When off leash with a female dog Champagne ignores interaction and expores the pen. 1/19: Champagne will greet the female dog in the pen but then continues to explore the pen. 1/20: Champagne greets then explores the yard. He may occasionally approach the female helper to sniff from behind but then quickly walks away.
