A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Did someone order a bat-eared dream girl?? Because she was accidentally delivered to Brooklyn ACC! Not only does Dallas have the sweetest face (her eyes always look sleepy in the cutest way possible), she is an absolute doll. She sees a friend in every new face and nearly creates an earthquake with her wiggle when she sees a familiar one! She has a good amount of energy and needs to burn it off before she’s outright cuddly, but she is very affectionate. She likes toys, but tennis balls are her main squeeze. She could play fetch forever. She pulls a little on leash, seems housebroken, and has “sit”, “paw” and “down” down pat (and she loves treats so much I’m sure you could teach her lots more!). She is the best company, and the route from Dallas to your heart only involves one stop…come meet her in Brooklyn today!
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
My medical notes are…
21-Jan-2018 Vet Notes: Progress exam-monitor for CIRDC. Subjective: QAR. No csvd. No ocular or nasal d/c. Good appetite. Subjective: EENT: No nasal or ocular d/c, H/L: Eupneic, no c/s, normal RR/RE NEURO: A&A MSI: GHC, ambulatory x4 Assessment: Apparently healthy Plan: CTM while at BACC Excellent prognosis
Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment: 11-Jan-2018
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. Allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, eyes are averted, and tail is in neutral position with a relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends (may need coaxing to approach). Dog is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Paw squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Eyes are averted and ears are relaxed or back.
Paw squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Eyes are averted and ears are relaxed or back.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Summary: Dallas was social towards the assessor. He allowed all handling.
PLAY GROUP :
Dallas displays assertive behavior throughout her Playgroup sessions. She mounts both male and female dogs, but responds well to handler interruptions and will investigate the pens. She was brought in as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Dallas be placed in a home with resident dogs that will tolerate her assertive behavior.
1/10: When off leash at the Care Centers, Dallas is assertive. She straightens her spine and raises her tail when the novel male dog greets her, and begin to lick his genitals. When he walks away, Dallas mounts him but immediately stops when interrupted by handlers. She spends the rest of her session exploring the yard.
1/11: Today, when introduced to a calm male dog, Dallas attempted to mount him. When he quickly bounced away from her, she displayed quick play bows before moving away. She spends the rest of the session exploring the yard.
1/12-16: Dallas continued to be assertive with a novel female dog. She initially follows her around, investigating her genitalia, but responds to handler interruptions and wanders the pens.
1/17: Dallas solicits bouncy play with a sexually motivated male, and is vocal when her energy increases.
1/18: Today, Dallas engages in brief bouts of play, but she easily becomes uncomfortable and begins to grumbles.
Date of intake: 9-Jan-2018
Summary: Behavior unknown
Date of initial: 10-Jan-2018
Summary: Dallas was social, tail wagging, active for exam, allows all handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Dallas so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. Dallas displayed high energy and movement throughout assessment, and will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised.BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:
AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
