09/08/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Johnny A1071396 is at risk for concerns that he is not thriving in the shelter environment. He seems to be increasingly frustrated with being kenneled, and is beginning to take treats with a harder mouth through the kennel bars. We recommend that he move out of the kennel environment quickly in order to moderate this frustration.

09/08/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Who says you can’t have Easter in the fall? Little lowriding Johnny is here for the pumpkin spice lattes but he also loves Cadbury eggs! This sweet bunny-eared meatball wants nothing more than to sidle up for a snuggle, sneak under your hand for a butt rub, and set that windshield-wiper tail on “high” at the very sight of your face. Johnny may not have the most perfect manners (he can be a little grabby with his treats) but he’s working on them! And whatever he lacks in polished charm he makes up for in giant heart. Johnny’s gone through more than one shelter stay and has still managed to keep his spirits high and bright. He’s done his part. Will we do ours and send him home tonight? Johnny is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.

Dog follows at end of leash, a bit distracted and not connected to assessor, body soft. Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, this may be due to environment as owner reports Johnny enjoys fetch and chase Summary: Johnny allowed all handling though appeared aloof throughout his assessment. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial 8/23/2017 During his initial medical exam, Johnny allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: His owner describes Johnny as having a very high activity level. In the care center, Johnny displays a medium level of energy. He will benefit from daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised, such as daily walks, runs, exercise, and play.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_House soiling- Johnny is reported to have occasional accidents in the house. He will need guidance and consistency to learn to eliminate outside. We recommend crate training (the crate must be made positive and never used as a punishment), frequent walks, rewards for eliminating outside (praise and treats), and consistent feeding schedule. Accidents should never be punished as it can damage the human-dog relationship and is likely to make the problem worse. _X_Anxiety – Johnny has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, at times vocalizing and barking continually through play sessions outside. This behavior was not reported at intake, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. We recommend a structured routine to help Johnny adjust to his new environment by knowing what to expect. _X_Strength/leash pulling – Owner reports Johnny pulls hard on leash. His adopter must be prepared and able to handle a dog of this size and strength. It is recommended that he be walked on a front clip harness or head halter, which helps diminish his strength through leverage, and that he be trained using positive reinforcement, reward based training to not pull on leash.
