02/06/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I did not want to “push” Gladys out of her comfort zone. She was at the back of her kennel, not interested to make a move… I put some of my tastiest treats at her door, again and again to always see them vanish like magic…I felt like a fisherwoman using wiggly worms to catch a fish… After a few hours, Gladys was at her door. She was not wagging her tail but looking at me in a very ‘benign” way. I opened her kennel, leashed her uneventfully and off we went for a little walk around the block. Gladys relieved herself and minded her own business as we neared other dogs. I really wanted to get to know her a little bit better and take her picture. Gladys looked rather stern but I could see that she was making all efforts to be sociable. It is not easy when your life has taken an unexpected turn.Gladys sat as I ordered and waited for duck jerkies. She absolutely loved them. As I fed her, I stroke her muzzle, her face and her back. She did not even turn her head. She seemed comfortable with my doings. Gladys might not be a Barbie doll or the equivalent in dog world but she has the potential to become a beautiful gal in caring and loving hands. She wears a dark chocolate coat and owns intense and shiny eyes so avid to trust me. I really really like her and I am looking forward to meeting her again and see her progress.I would love for you to keep Gladys in your thoughts and consider her maybe as your next forever best friend. Gladys is at the Manhattan Care Center.
02/06/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/3/17 Unaltered Female, Stray Other notes: Gladys growled after leashed by police. She growled upon intake when counselor approached crate, but allowed minimal petting from counselor once outside of crate. She bared teeth when admissions attempted to collar. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/6/2017 Look: 5. Dog growls. Toy: 1. No interest Summary: Gladys took treats gently and allowed assessor to collar. She allowed petting and leaned into assessor when scratched at base of tail. Gladys allowed head to be placed into position but became uncomfortable and low growled during the duration of the three second hold. Remaining tactile items were skipped due to behavior. PLAYGROUP: Pending playgroup. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/3/17 During her initial medical exam, Gladys was sensitive about back and side being touched growled and showed teeth. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Gladys is difficult to remove from the kennel, lunging and snapping at the leash. She appears to be uncomfortable or afraid of the slip lead. She has also allowed minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Gladys is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Gladys has growled and bared teeth when uncomfortable on several occasions while here at the care center. She has given appropriate warning signs and her behavior has never escalated. She responds well to treats and moving slowly/speaking gently. Gladys will require a calm, quiet, structured environment so she can relax and warm up at her own pace.
