A volunteer writes: Meet Hennessy, our resident athlete extraordinaire! Tomboys don’t come any cuter than this gorgeous girl, and her love for people is as robust as her mighty ball-fetching muscles are strong. Always on the go and ready to make new friends, Henny arrived with her equally sporty sister Hazel, but she’s not a fan of other dogs (even Hazel), and prefers to spend her days running, jumping, hugging and getting loved on by two-legged folks instead. She’ll actually stand and walk on two legs herself if the occasion calls for it, stepping up to get closer to her favorite toy or beg for a treat. Take too long to toss it (what is this ‘sit still’ pose you speak of?) and you’re in for a big ol’ Henny-style hug! Henny knows commands for come and sit, and while she likes to keep her ball close to paw, she doesn’t guard it, and with a quick hand, the fetching can go on for hours. She’s an extremely strong puller, so leash walking isn’t her forte, but with a bright mind and eager-to-please attitude, she’s more than ready to better her manners with the right teacher. Henny is a big girl with a big heart, and she’s hoping to find an adopter who appreciates living life as large as she does. Give her plenty of space, lots of exercise and a home where she can be your one and only, and she’ll give you a lifetime of loyalty and love. So why wait? Visit our Manhattan Care Center, ask for Hennessy, and get the par-tay started today!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 6/30/17 Unaltered Female, Owner Surrender (In previous home for three years) Previously lived with: Adults, a baby, and another dog Behavior toward strangers: Friendly, outgoing, respectful, relaxed, and playful Behavior toward children: Friendly, outgoing, respectful, relaxed, and playful Behavior toward dogs: Respectful and playful with the dog she lived with (her sister) and other dogs Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Hennessy is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, pushy, excitable and independent with a medium level of activity. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 7/2/17 Look: 1. Dog leans forward with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is wagging with relaxed body posture. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is between you and the toy, and she is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. Summary: Hennessey displayed a high level of activity and movement on her assessment, jumping up on the assessor repeatedly throughout her assessment. She was social throughout. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: 7/1: When introduced to the male greeter dog through the fence, Hennessey barks and bares teeth. She was muzzled for an off-leash interaction and was tense throughout, although slightly distracted by the muzzle. She offered correction for persistent approach from the male dog. PLAYGROUP: 7/1: When introduced to the male greeter dog through the fence, Hennessey barks and bares teeth. She was muzzled for an off-leash interaction and was tense throughout, although slightly distracted by the muzzle. She offered correction for persistent approach from the male dog. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Hennessy allowed all handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: During her initial medical exam, Hennessey was active but allowed all handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: Hennessey’s previous owner described her as having a medium level of activity. She may have a low threshold for arousal and needs guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when she becomes overstimulated. She will need daily mental and physical stimulation and exercise, and a force-free, positive reinforcement-based training class may help her to learn impulse control and to train desirable behaviors that can be rewarded. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No children (under 13): Due to the high amount of jumping and movement on her assessment, we recommend an adult only home at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: Hennessy displays a high level of jumping up on people. She becomes excited quickly and has trouble settling. 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; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended. _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: At the care center Hennessy has been observed to react to other dogs on leash, lunging towards them, barking and growling. Hennessy may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to look at you rather than other dogs and novel stimuli that may startle her. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior. _X_Strength/leash pulling: Hennessy is a very large, strong dog with the capability to pull over an average adopter. Her adopter must be prepared and able to handle a dog of this size and strength. It is recommended that she be walked on a front clip harness or head halter, which help diminish her strength through leverage, and that he be trained using positive reinforcement, reward based training to not pull on leash.
