A volunteer writes: It’s the simple things, really. Lazy weekends, slow-moving sunsets, breakfasts in bed snuggled close to the ones you love. Just the sight of 2 year-old Fritata is more warm and comforting than a bowl of chicken soup. Her soft, honey coat and her sweet, charcoal nose make for a face that only everyone and their mother could surely love. She is initially a bit shy and uncertain in her kennel. It takes some coaxing, a few delicious treats, for her to come towards me and accept my invitation for a walk. But as soon as she does well the pair of us are off, no looking back. Fast friends, just two young (well youngish in my case) ladies, enjoying a beautiful Sunday before noon. Once we emerge from the shelter’s shade Fritata’s doubts melt like mozzarella. She picks up her pace, shifts into a skip, and soon we’re resting on a park bench, snacking alfresco in the sun. Sadly my eyes fall on Fritata’s coat and its missing patches. She was found wandering a park. A good, little egg, just 36 pounds, she is very thin and has bruises. Fortunately Fritata seems to have put the past behind her. She holds no ill will, harbors zero grudges, seems content to wake up every morning to a new day, prepared to shine. And shine she does. As I rub her head and feed her treats, run my hand over her scars. It’s the simple things, really. Comfort, nature, family, and love. What more could a girl ever want? Fritata is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
03/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/6/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/9/17 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful, her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is down, body tense, mouth closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, bit distracted and focused on exit. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is between you and the toy. No growling or stiffness. Summary: Fritata appeared fearful in the assessment room, trembling with a low, tense body, and at first shying away from the assessor. She did become more comfortable with the assessor, seeking affection at times. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: Fritata has been tolerant of approach from polite dogs in the care center, and has begun to show interest in interacting with them. The behavior department recommends slow introductions to respectful resident dogs.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/6/17 During her initial medical exam, Fritata was tense, growled, and snapped. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Fritata so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience, especially with the issues outlined below.) _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Fritata is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Fritata gives clear warnings when she is uncomfortable and does seem to choose to avoid or retreat when given the opportunity, but if prevented from moving away there is a potential to escalate to higher-level warning behaviors and possible fear-based aggression. It is important to move slowly with Fritata, to build positive associations (treats/toys/praise), and to allow Fritata to initiate interactions with new people. She should never be forced to greet or to interact if she is not comfortable and soliciting attention.)
