04/28/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Denver lays quietly at the back of his kennel. He was rather shy and scared yesterday but today, he came to his door and got leashed without any fuss. Denver is a very beautiful and unusual looking dog. I love his big square face and his owl’s ears that are so challenging to capture with my camera. His body is much too thin but well dressed and perched on long legs. I love the way he poses, sitting, his tail slightly curled behind him, his head on the side…He looks so noble…Denver is a strong dog who pulls quite a bit on the leash. He is very fond of treats as he has a lot of weight to catch up with. He mostly jumps and hops to get more but sometimes will sit on command. Denver is a little shy with caresses and one wonders if he ever got any… He is not uncomfortable around us humans, though and by the end of our time together, he seemed to find a little less strange that I wanted to pet him…I so hope that gorgeous Denver will soon know more than a safe den and three meals a day…Will he get to try that cushy oversized pillow, eat fancy and healthy jerkies and mostly run free with his new master through Central Park or the country side… It is in your hands… Come and meet Denver at the Manhattan Care Center. He so would love to see you..
04/24/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 4/22/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/24/17 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Dog is tense. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body stiff, mouth closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body low, and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Denver was a bit fearful during his assessment, having a tense body and at time avoiding the assessor. He did warm up during the assessment and sought out attention. He allowed all handling. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Play Skill Novice: These dogs lack appropriate skills to engage in proper play. They may become stuck on one behavior; lack pauses or breaks in play and often ignores warning signs from other dogs to slow down. Play should end when the other dog in the didactic pair signals it is over. PLAYGROUP: Denver is exuberant at play with male and female dogs in the care center. He often engages in running, jumping chase play and at times attempts to mount while engaging. The behavior department feels that Denver may be most compatible with dogs who are playful or tolerant of exuberant play behavior. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/22/177 During his initial medical exam, Denver was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Denver 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: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Denver is a bit fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Denver the option to walk away from any social interaction. Denver should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Denver’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Denver would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
