A volunteer writes: Perhaps named Egypt by her family as she has Cleopatra (gorgeous!!) eyes, she was surrendered to our care due to NYCHA restrictions. We’re told that Egypt is friendly and outgoing, lived relaxed and playfully with two children ages 2 and 3, and lived well with a 3 yo female cat. We’re told that she doesn’t guard her things, enjoys baths and being brushed, likes to play with toys, is housetrained when walked 3x per day, is also wee wee pad trained, knows ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘catch’ and ‘go get it’ (which means eat). Egypt is all gorgeous puppy: playful, affectionate, active and fun. She’s been beautifully taken care of, loved hanging out in my lap in the park watching some kids play ball and I’m sure she was waiting for an invitation to join the game! Showing off her sit she takes treats gently, and thinks chasing birds and squirrels is a swell game. Off leash Egypt loved playing with a soft toy bringing it back every time I threw it for another throw and/or a game of tug. Bouncy, fun, affectionate, smart and sweet. Egypt is ready to find a new family to love. A proven family dog who slept in her own dog bed or in her person’s bed, she’s looking for a new family with whom to spend the rest of her life. Raising a puppy, like a child, is never easy, but Egypt is most of the way there……someone is going to be very lucky to make her theirs.
Egypt is an 8 month old spayed female. She was given to her previous owners as a gift when she was 2 months old, but surrendered because or landlord issues. Then last time she went to the vet was April 1st 2016 and she has no known injuries or health problems.
Around strangers Egypt is friendly and outgoing and exuberant when he played with adults. She lived with children ages 2 and 3, and with them, she was relaxed and playful and exuberant at play. She’s spent time with other dogs and is relaxed and playful and exuberant at play.
She also lived with a 3 year old spayed cat and was relaxed and playful with her as well.
Egypt has never attempted to bite a person or animal. She isn’t bothered by storms or loud noises. If her food bowl was touched while eating she kept eating with a relaxed body. She’s playful if a treat or toy is taken from her. She isn’t bothered if she is pushed off furniture. She is friendly if she is restrained. She isn’t bothered if he is disturbed while sleeping. She enjoys baths and bring brushed. She isn’t bothered if her paws are touched. She is friendly if an unfamiliar person approached her home or previous owner.
For a New Family to know:
Egypt is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, pushy and excitable with a high activity level. The things her previous owner liked most about her were; she’s playful and loves
going out on long walks. When her previous owners were home she would follow them around. She liked to play with rope, balls and squeaky toys. She was kept indoors only and at night he slept either in her dog bed or her previous owner’s bed. She ate both wet and dry pedigree. She is house trained and never had. She is used to using wee wee pads when in the home. When left alone she chewed things left around and furniture. She knows the cues sit, stay and catch and go get it (which means eat). She was walked 3 times daily and on leash she pulls hard, off leash she wanders and comes when called.
Behavior during intake:
Egypt had a wagging tail and relaxed body. she allowed me to pet her, collar her and take her pictures. She gave kisses and jumped up to hug and showed no signs of aggression.
Egypt pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, mouthy (light). Egypt was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. She was excitable (jumping, grabbing at the leash) but playful while playing tag. Egypt took the toy away but had soft body language.
Egypt was surrender to us. According to the owner she is friendly and outgoing and exuberant when he played with adults. She lived with children ages 2 and 3, and with them, she was relaxed and playful and exuberant at play. She’s spent time with other dogs and is relaxed and playful and exuberant at play. She also lived with a 3 year old spayed cat and was relaxed and playful with her as well. If her food bowl was touched while eating she kept eating with a relaxed body. She’s playful if a treat or toy is taken from her”. Egypt is an active dog she need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that she can go to an experience home.
Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) She is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 2. Dog gently places her open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Egypt’s previous owner cites that “she’s spent time with other dogs and is relaxed and playful and exuberant at play”. When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Egypt is initially a bit tense and uncomfortable at first greeting. She begins to engage in bouts of play when solicited, offering bows, however begins to yelp and whine when play becomes more exuberant. As the interaction continues, Egypt appears to become more comfortable. The behavior team feels that Egypt could potentially be adopted to a home with another dog pending a successful pre adoption interaction and slow introductions.
