A volunteer writes: If pretty little Cloud really were a cloud she’d definitely be one of the marshmallow fluff kind you see on bright summer days, jauntily flying across the sky and making little kids smile as they invent fantastical creatures she might resemble. With her giant bunny ears and majestic nose I think there must be some of my favorite breed, the Bull Terrier, up her family tree but it’s those undefinable little ginger freckles and pleading amber eyes that really tug at my heartstrings. Cloud is super social, very easy to handle, quietly affectionate and boy, does she love treats! With snacks on offer no one sits more perfectly than Cloud and no matter how long it takes, she’ll wait and wait for her tasty reward before ever so gently licking it from my hand. Cloud walks well on leash and pulls only to meet other dogs, she seems to be house trained and despite a little boo-boo on one cheek, she’s clearly been well cared for and loved in the past. It’s easy to fall head over heels for a gentle youngster like this sweetheart and she’d be a wonderful addition to almost any family. Come in to our Manhattan Care Center and snuggle up with Cloud today! Another volunteer writes: The more time I spend with Cloud, the more I love her. She was being loved on by staff when I entered their pen, and she immediately came to sit in front of me, perhaps remembering that she likes my treats? So sweet. We played a bit, kissed and hugged a bit, and Cloud then rolled over for a belly rub, so content to lie there in the sun with me stroking her belly. Closing her eyes in bliss, she was enjoying the moment as much as I was. A total people dog, Miss Cloud is looking for a lifetime of cuddles, kisses and belly rubs. She’s going to make someone an incredible friend. I wish it could be me.
04/03/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/25/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/27/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. She jumps up softly and grabs the leash briefly. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Cloud displayed no concerning behaviors on her assessment. She did become a bit excited during tag, jumping up and briefly grabbing the leash, but she quickly settled. PLAYGROUP: Cloud stiffens, growls, and snaps when greeting is conducted through the fence. A muzzle is applied before allowing off leash greeting. Cloud is initially tense upon greeting. When solicited with play, Cloud begins to bow and bounce along playfully. The muzzle is removed. Cloud continues to engage in play, and offers appropriate correction when uncomfortable with overly mouthy or jumpy play. It should kept into consideration that Cloud has displayed on leash/barrier reactivty toward other dogs. The behavior department recommends slow, one on one introductions to respectful dogs. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 03/25/17 During her initial medical exam, Cloud was tense and gave a low growl. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Cloud so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. During her assessment, she jumped up on the assessor, apparently to seek out attention. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
IN-SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: Cloud has been social and easily handled by familiar handlers; will solicit attention and affectionate. When on a walk and approached by unfamiliar people, Cloud was initially collecting information and soft; she then quickly escalated to lunging, barking, and snapping as the person got closer while speaking to her in a high-pitched voice and attempting to reach over her head. She settled when moved away from the person. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adult-only home _X_No children: Cloud has shown a number of warning and distance-increasing behaviors to different handling triggers. Due to these behaviors we recommend an experienced adopter and an adult-only home. Potential challenges: _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: At the care center Cloud has been observed to react to other dogs and human passerby on leash, lunging towards them, barking and growling. Cloud may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to look at you rather than other dogs, novel stimuli that may startle her. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Though observed to be human-social, Cloud may need time to warm up to the handler as she initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch and at times, displaying all distance increasing signals while on leash. We recommend allowing Cloud to interact at her own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations. _X_ No dog parks: Cloud has been observed to be reactive to other dogs in the care center. Future introductions should be conducted on a one on one basis. See PLAYGROUP for further information.
