10/19/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/19/16 12:39 BASIC INFO Juicy A1093987 and Gianni A1093988 are APBT. They are being surrendered to the shelter because they were found as strays in finders building. Finder is the superintendent of the building and he cannot keep the dogs. Finder brought the dogs to ACCNYC. BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE Both dogs allowed handling, collaring and photos.
A volunteer writes: Gorgeous and loved once upon a time, Gianni is completely overwhelmed in his new environment. He hugs the back of his kennel, but gradually comes forward for some treats. His tail gives a little wag as he takes his treat, but it’s still clear this is just not his cup of tea. Once leashed and coaxed outside he goes potty immediately, allows petting but isn’t really enjoying it. His favorite staff person tells me that off leash in a quiet room, Gianni relaxes, enjoys petting and actually nudges her to keep petting him. Never once, in all my times with him, as uncomfortable as he is, has he growled, curled his lip, or been anything but a perfect gentleman. This is a dog who knew love, who loved in return, was well taken care of and just can’t figure all of this out. He’s so good on leash, his coat shines, he knows how to sit……and he’s so confused. He needs a person who will give him the time to come out of his shell on his own timetable….. He’s been coming out of his shell, allowing us to see the inner him one inch at a time. If this can happen in a chaotic ne environment, I know he’ll thrive in a quiet home with people who care. He needs a hero…..will it be you?

ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience Potential challenges: _X_Fearful (During his stay at our care centers, Gianni has been shut down and is often avoidant of human interaction though appears to tolerate any forms of touch/handling without issue. We cannot be certain if any behavior is suppressed a result of the shelter environment. Gianni has displayed no concerning behavior and may do best with an experienced adopter who will allow a period of decompression for Gianni to acclimate/interact at his own pace. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Gianni to new and unfamiliar situations.)
