09/12/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: If you are looking for a great four-legged friend, a “good” dog, we have what you are looking for, right here at the Manhattan Care Center. She wears the name of a very special snowy owl, Harry Potter’s loyal companion. Although Hedwig is a dog as dark as night, she could be your forever faithful best friend, too. Hedwig is calm and collected in her kennel but ready for a walk…any time. She strolls nicely, not forgetting to do her business, and leaving alone the birds. She seems to like other dogs, even the small ones. A little quiet at the beginning of our encounter, Hedwig came to life as time went by, jumping or sitting for treats, running laps with me through two large open pens or sitting by my side for caresses. She loves to be handled and petted. She is a big tail wager and has a smile that does not leave her. Hedwig owns amazing ears that she can wear up, down and sideways depending on what she does or hears. It is very cute. In a nutshell, Hedwig is a pretty damsel, medium sized, well dressed, sociable, playful and affectionate. She dreams of a real home, loving humans…forever, this time. Come and meet her soon.

PLAYGROUP: 9/10: When introduced off leash to dogs in the care center, Hedwig is fearful and keeps to herself. 9/12: Hedwig is fearful of interaction and keeps to herself. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Hedwig so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Hedwig has a high level of energy. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control- Hedwign takes treats very enthusiastically, at times may jump up. It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute any frustration and teach her to control her impulses instead of simply reacting; Force-free, reward based training only is recommended.
