A volunteer writes: Crispix is the old man that’s going to steal your heart (I have no doubt that he has years of experience at it!!). His big body shows signs of wear and tear but there’s something about his face that makes it easy to imagine just what he looked like as a little boy. He doesn’t pull much on leash (and loves to stop and smell the roses) and seems housebroken. He’s SUPER treat motivated and could sniff mine out before I even took them out of my backpack! He knows “sit” and “paw” and is an absolute gentleman in his delivery (and acceptance of his reward!). He loooves toys and isn’t ready to retire from his fetching career yet. He is super wiggly as he carries a tennis ball around and always comes to show it off to me before bouncing off, sometimes throwing it for himself, and eventually settling down to skin it (he also destroys squeaky toys and makes adorable there’s-stuffing-on-my-tongue faces!). He is friendly, quietly affectionate, softly waggy, and as charming as can be!! When a staff member approached the yard to say “hi” he was very wiggly and even howled at her as if to mourn the barrier between them. Crispix would love the opportunity to add your heart to his pile…and give you all of his in return 🙂 Please come see this incredibly sweet guy at Brooklyn ACC!
05/05/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 5/3/17 Intact Male, Stray Other notes: Upon intake Crispix was friendly and allowed all handling. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 5/5/17 Look:1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag:1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Summary: Crispix was friendly, social and playful towards the assessor, he showed no concerns. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Crispix attempts to mount male and female dogs. In a playful group of dogs, he is able to explore the pen when he is unable to mount. Crispix was brought in as a stray so his past behavior around other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Crispix be placed in a home with well-socialized resident dogs that are tolerant of his mounting behavior. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/3/17: During his medical examination, Crispix was calm and social, he allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Crispix so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
05/04/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash at the Care Center, Crispix attempts to mount male and female dogs. In a playful group of dogs, he is able to explore the pen when he is unable to mount. Crispix was brought in as a stray so his past behavior around other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Crispix be placed in a home with well-socialized resident dogs that are tolerant of his mounting behavior. 5/4: Crispix greets a novel female and heightens his stance. He exchanges several genital sniffs with her, then offers a single play bow. Afterwards he mostly explores the yard and its scents. Crispix was also introduced to a neutered male today, again greeting with a heightened posture, exchanging a few sniffs then wanders away. After several minutes away from the male, he approaches him again this time positioning his body to mount the male. He responded appropriately to being corrected by the other dog and to handler interruptions. 5/5: In a group of calm female dogs, Crispix immediately mounts a female and persists after she offers correction and the handlers interrupt. He is removed from the group. 5/6- 5/7: In a group of playful male and female dogs, Crispix displays bouncy body language as he attempts to mount male and female dogs. When he is unable to mount, he keeps to himself and explores the pen.
