01/13/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Who does not like hot cocoa? Most of us do, but wait and see our Hot Cocoa, a lovely gal who will, like the beverage, warm up your body and heart with her gentle personality. Hot Cocoa was very shy upon arrival, but I would qualify her right now as a bit timid, poised and well mannered. She is collected in her kennel, accepts the leash obediently and walks “like a dream” in the street. She attends to business right away and meets other dogs properly without pulling toward them. She is quite patient, waiting for her caretaker to finish a long conversation with a staff member. She just sits there, patiently, not bothered by anything going on around her. Hot Cocoa is a very pretty gal, healthy, well nourished and beautifully dressed in a perfect latte coat. Dark chocolate smudges her muzzle and highlights her velvety eyes. She likes treats very much, will sit for them, and takes them gently from my hand. Hot Cocoa takes a little bit of time to warm up, but usually ends up with her head in my lap for caresses. Her coat feels so soft, and she likes caresses very much. Hot Cocoa’s walking log is loaded with lovely comments by volunteers. Who does not like a well behaved, pretty, gentle and calm pooch? Hot Cocoa is dreaming of a new home and mostly a human or family she will indulge with her love. Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
01/12/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is down, body tense, mouth closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Toy: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Summary: Hot Cocoa appeared a bit timid during her assessment, but warmed up the assessor. She may become uncomfortable with close up touch or with fast movement. A very slow approach and slow introduction, as well as an initially calm and quiet home environment, would be beneficial to her. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: 1/12: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Hot Cocoa is nervous and avoids approach. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 01/10/17 During initial medical exam Hot Cocoa appeared to be very nervous, resisted handling, tense ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful (Hot Cocoa has shown fear around new people and fast movement in the shelter environment, backing away from them and keeping distance. It is important to allow Hot Cocoa to approach new people and things at her own pace and to never force her to be pet or to interact; she should always be given the option to walk away from any interaction.)
