A volunteer writes: I was not going to go to the care center today. Everglade was on my mind when I went to sleep last night and when I woke up this morning. I had to see her again, make her feel better than yesterday and maybe, maybe get her out of her shaking shell….I found Everglade yesterday all wary in her kennel. Her posture, her eyes and her tucked tail…She was sitting by her door, though and let me leash her without trouble. What a pretty girl… Petite, overly thin but dressed in a lovely hazelnut coat. She was indeed scared, very hand shy and jumped at every noise. By the end of our time together, she came when I called her and took treats gently from my fingers. Her tail was more daring…Another volunteer came in our pen and she went back to square one…Let’s go to the street…Oh, miracle! Everglade walked at a very light pace, her tail floating above her…She looked so much more relaxed. We sat on the sidewalk and observed people going by. She was not the same dog…..I petted her head and body. She was so much more at ease. Before I left, I took Everglade out for another walk…Much better…She was not afraid of the dark. I settled on a bench, gave her dry liver bits and hop on the bench came Everglade..I would never have thought. What a winner! I am sooooo proud of her. She came closer and closer, let me hug her shoulder..We were two friends contemplating an empty yard full of warm feelings. Love and trust were in the air…Everglade risked a kiss, then another…We were on the path to recovery…I have hope for Everglade…I know she can do it but she needs a home, a person to trust and love…Will you be that friend she so very much needs. Will you open your home and your heart to this very endearing girl? Everglade is at the Manhattan Care Center.
02/20/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Everglade is fearful of the shelter environment she walks with a low and fearful body language. She was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away. During the look item Everglade lowered her face, body and freezes with her tail tucked; ears back, and curled her lips. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Everglade was not interested in toys. Due to the behavior demonstrated in the shelter the behavior department believes that Everglade is not an appropriate candidate for a full SAFER. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 5. Dog freezes Toy 1. No interest. Playgroup Notes: When off leash with other dogs, Everglade is fearful, crouched low with a tucked tail. She eventually offers a small growl when approached by the male greeter dog.
