10/11/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Although Greyson is just 3 years old, he has been through his tough times. Found as a stray, Greyson was covered in bug bites. Despite coming from difficult circumstances, Greyson remains sweet and gentle, and loves to give kisses. He walks very well on a leash, loves to play with toys (and is very creative–he tried to play tug of war with an old rag he found the other day!), and enjoys a good scratch on the bum. Greyson’s cheerfulness and energy are contagious and he would do great with someone who’s looking for a playful and affectionate buddy. Come and visit Greyson today at the Manhattan ACC. Another volunteer writes: After hearing from so many volunteers how awesome Greyson is, I decided that I had to meet him and see for myself. He’s a super handsome boy whose tail never stops wagging, seems to be housetrained, loves playing with toys and is friendly and social. He made my job of taking photos easy as he poses like a dog who’s used to having his photo taken (he’s so good looking I’m not surprised), and when I asked him to he gave me a perfect sit. Greyson told me he’s ready to find his ‘happily ever after’ person so ask to meet our sweet boy today.
10/17/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
During his stay at our care center Greyson has remained human-social though due to has become increasingly difficult to refocus/manage while on walks as he easily becomes aroused, making attempts to grab at the leash. Due to his stress level, Greyson is unlikely to thrive in the shelter environment and should move into a home as quickly as possible. 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.) 9/15 SAFER Assessment Greyson walked into the assessment room relaxed and he had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue.

09/14/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Greyson was brought in as stray so his behavior around other dogs is unknown. Greyson has displayed mostly sexually motivated behavior. He has recently been neutered, but it can not be said for certain if and when mounting behavior will begin to extinguish. The behavior department feels Greyson sould be allowed to acclimate as the only resident dog until follow up outside the shelter. 9/14: Due to the Greyson’s medical concerns (Biting and licking at all four feet. Swollen between toes.), we did not bring him out to playgroup. We will take him out tomorrow after he has had some time to acclimate and his treatments have had time to take effect. 9/15: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Greyson greets the novel female dog displaying loose and wiggly body language. He immediately mounts her and persists after handler interruptions. The handlers have to physically removing him to cease the mounting. 10/12-10/18: Greyson continues to display loose and wiggly body language at the gate. Upon entering the pen, he rushes in and persistantly attempts to mount the female dog.
