A volunteer writes: Fendi is living proof that little butterballs get better with age! I’m sure we look very silly out on walks together as I often have to stop every leash length, crouch down and coo her my way with treats; she doesn’t pull but frequently decides she wants to turn around and go the other way (maybe she’s trying to find her way to your place!). Sure, it’s a bit of an exercise in patience and I’ve contemplated walking her with a steak attached to the end of a fishing pole, but it’s a minuscule price to pay for her sweet, sweet company! She offers soft little tail wags, loving eye contact, and is very cuddly. She loves old-lady-teeth friendly snacks, knows basic commands, and seems housebroken. She seems to have an easy energy level, is very gentle, and just radiates goodness! She does fine with other dogs, has lived harmoniously with children, and hopes to add living with you to her resume!! She would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC.

KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 5/28/17 Unaltered Female, Owner surrender (Length in previous home) Previously lived with: Adults and children(1 years old and up) Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Playful and gentle Behavior toward dogs: Respectful Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Yes, she will growl and eat faster if anyone come near her food bowl. Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes, Energy level/descriptors: The owner stated Fendi displays a medium activity level in the household. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/1/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity:1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag:1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Flank Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy:1. No interest. Summary: Fendi was friendly and calm, she allowed all handling. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Fendi displays soft and social body language in a group of calm male and female dogs. According to Fendi’s previous guardian, Fendi has been socialized with other dogs and is respectful towards them and usually just smells them then walks away. The Behavior Department recommends that Fendi be placed with resident dogs that match her calm sociability. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 5/28/17: Upon intake Fendi was very social and wiggly, she allowed all handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/28/17: During her medical examination, Fendi was curious and low growled but allowed handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: Her previous owner reports a medium activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5)- Due to potential food guarding behavior. Fendi gave an appropriate warning of her discomfort (growl) but we feel that young children may not know to respect this warning. Older, dog savvy children can be considered as long as the adults feel confident that Angela can be left alone while eating so she does not need to escalate from a growl. Behavior modification for food guarding behavior can be found at aspcapro.org. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding- Fendi’s previous owner notes that she growls and eats faster when someone comes near her food bowl. We recommend that Fendi be left along while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in her future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Fendi’s mouth, and any time something is removed she should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. She should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games.
