Drake and Rihanna were found together , two friends roaming alone the streets of New York City.. Drake is a petite young adult like Rihanna, a little thin, well dressed and could be her brother. He reminds me of a little firefly, bright orange and moving non stop in all directions. He so wants attention. His tail wags a lot. He is a major wiggelbutt. Taking his picture is not easy and most of my shots are blurry. To make it worse, it is too hot outside and all the tongues..are out..Drake walks quite well on the leash, though. He meets politely other dogs and does his business on the way. Free in a pen, he comes when called, hops on the bench for caresses and would eat my whole bag of treats if i let him. He is quite polite, though, taking roast beef from my hand. Drake is a gentle dog just like Rihanna. He welcomes a staff entering our area. With Drake, the more, the merrier.. All in one, Drake might be a little stressed by a big change in his life but is a very friendly and sociable youngster who would love to land in an active household and be the best and most loyal friend one ever dreamed to have. Drake is at the Manhattan Care Center.
Drake came into our center as a stray along with another similarly sized dog, behaviors in the home are unknown. He was quiet and calm upon intake. Drake was friendly and allowed all handling during his initial medical exam, wiggly. He pulled lightly on leash for his relief walk. Drake was sociable, friendly, and wiggly upon entering SAFER assessment room. He jumped up and licked assessor’s face during Look item. Drake accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, tail wagging, body soft and wiggly. He followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, began popping his body playfully towards the end of game. He did not pull his paw back on first Squeeze attempt, pulled back on second attempt. Drake played lightly with Toy, relinquished it easily. When off leash with other dogs Drake engages in soft play. The Behavior Team feels Drake would do well with an Average adopter. He appears to enjoy the company of other dogs and may do well with another resident dog, should have an interaction before considering adoption.
Look: 1. Dog jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, panting, wiggly
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, playful towards end of game
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed
Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy 1: 1. Dog plays minimally, will relinquish toy to you.
Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs Drake engages in soft play.
7/22: When off leash with other dogs Drake engages in soft play. He will occasionally attempt to mount but responds to correction.
