04/03/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Ferigamo is a scrawny little guy with a big personality and an even bigger heart! He is ALWAYS wagging his tail and greets everyone that shows him any attention with an unparalleled wiggle, stand up hugs, and a barrage of kisses. His face is full of character (Those markings! Those little teeth!), he settles down to walk nicely on leash, and he seems housebroken. He is a guy that knows what he wants and if there’s toys or treats around he’ll be sure to tell you about them with a big bark. He pulls it off as charming and actually takes treats super gently (he also “sits” like a champ); while he’s gentle with the hands that hold them, once toys are in his possession he’s been known to immediately initiate a stuffing party! He’s very attentive and engaging, makes himself at home in my lap, and it doesn’t take much to send him rolling on his back for belly rubs. His name might look like something you’d find in a bag on Canal Street, but this guy is the real deal!! Come meet him at Brooklyn ACC and make your life exponentially more fun!
03/28/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 03/25/17 Intact male, Stray Other notes: Upon intake, Ferigamo allowed all handling without issue. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 03/28/17 Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog might jump on Assessor once play begins. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy/rawhide. Summary: Ferigamo was social and playful throughout, he displayed no concerns. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Ferigamo displays frustration (hard barking and jumping on the pen door) when he greets a novel female. He is muzzle as a precaution, and allowed to interact with the greeter. He is momentarily occupied by the muzzle, and then begins to persistently sniff her genitals. He is tolerant of her playful solicitation, and continues to place his muzzle near her genitals. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 03/25/17 During his initial medical examination, Ferigamo allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Ferigamo so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended. _x_Recommend no dog parks (Due to Ferigamo’s mildly concerning behavior –hard barking and jumping- when greeting a female dog and his unknown behavior when interacting with other male dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that Ferigamo not be taken to dog parks until his behavior towards other dogs can be further addressed in a more controlled setting. Further dog-dog interactions will not be conducted at the Care Center until Ferigamo’s recovery period from neuter surgery is complete.)
