A staff member writes: Look at this gorgeous chocolate, vanilla swirl. He is so sweet and beautiful beyond belief. He is so energetic and ready to go on an adventure. Jeter is very friendly and social toward every person he comes across. He is also friendly with other dogs. He always greets and solicits a high energy level and overall just ready to play and have fun. When i take him to the play yard, he is a delight to be around. We engage in playful activities such as tag, where he likes to run around the pin and also fetch, he waits for me to throw the ball and then jets after it, its the cutest thing. As much as I love seeing him when I come into work everyday, I would appreciate it even more if Jeter were to get his forever home as he deserves.
A volunteer writes:Have you been looking for a running buddy? Tug-of-war partner? The kind of dog who gets so excited about finding an empty can on the ground, that he has to bound full speed to the next exciting object on the ground to sniff?Jeter is a young, happy, energetic, and playful guy who has trouble choosing which one he wants to play with more– the ball he already has or the stick he just found on the ground. That’s right, Jeter actually picked up a random stick from the ground on our walk today and carried it back to the play area. He definitely had me laughing for every moment I spent with him. Not surprisingly, Jeter’s energy for life means he does pull a little on the leash, but he’s very responsive to his handler and would do great on a harness (he also responds well to treats, baby talk, and ear scratches).Jeter is ready to go home to someone active who can provide the love, exercise, structure, and chew toys that he needs! He seems to be housebroken and loves playing with other dogs, but can get a little overexcited and doesn’t always know when the other dogs are getting tired of playing with him.With some some basic training, care, and affection, Jeter will make someone very happy. Could it be you? Come and see him at the Brooklyn ACC today. A volunteer writes: If playtime, goofiness and fun were a sport, Jeter would be an MVP! He would gladly run in the park with you, play ball or go on other adventures! He is a puppy who loves to play games like fetch and tug o war.Jeter’s coat is also so soft- he feels like soft down, all the better to cuddle with!

CANINE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION for Jeter A1087573 KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 5/21/17 Neutered, Owner surrender (9-10 months in the previous home) Previously lived with: Adults and spent time with children Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Relaxed and playful Behavior toward dogs: Relaxed and playful Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: The owner stated Jeter displays a high activity level in the household Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 5/24/17 Look:1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity:1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag:1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed. Toy:1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Summary: Jeter was friendly and social towards the assessor. DOG-DOG ASSESSMENT: Hyper-motivated: These dogs come on too strong and have coarse social skills. They have had a poor history of social experience with other dogs and were most likely deprived of off- leash contact. They are overly excited when meeting new dogs, often up in the other dog’s face and not able to read subtle signals to back off, which can quickly lead to a scuffle. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Jeter solicits and engages in high energy play with male and female dogs. He displays coarse social skills, continually soliciting high energy mouthy play after other dogs display appropriate body language that they do not wish to engage. Jeter was brought in as a stray so his past behavior around other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Jeter be placed in a home with well-socialized, tolerant dogs that are comfortable with his high energy play style.
IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: In the past couple of days the Behavior Team has noted a dramatic increase in Jeter’s anxiety level which is leading to an increase in overall mouthiness directed towards other dogs and handler as well as leash grabbing. Last night a volunteer reported that Jeter was very difficult to walk- leaping onto her, biting the rope and mouthing her. In playgroup this morning, when a handler reached to grab his drag leash, Jeter head whipped and bit her hand. There were no puncture wounds or broken skin but he did apply an unsafe amount of bite pressure. At this time we feel that this deterioration in behavior is a direct result of being housed at the Care Center and feel that for the safety of staff and for Jeter’s well-being, placement should be sought as soon as possible. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Jeter’s coarse social skills towards other dogs, and the propensity for that behavior to not be received well, the Behavior Department recommends that Jeter only be socialized in a more controlled setting. Potential challenges: _X_Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition: Jeter is quick to put his teeth on skin, hard mouthing at times, to an unsafe level. We recommend never playing with bare hands – always with a toy – and ending play or attention whenever Jeter puts teeth on skin. He should be rewarded with attention and treats when he stops and/or when he is seeking attention in alternate ways. _X_Social hyper-arousal: Jeter’s low threshold for arousal rapidly escalates to inappropriate and hard mouthing. Immediate intervention and consultation with a qualified veterinary behaviorist/professional trainer is strongly recommended to aid in addressing this issue to prevent further behavioral concerns that may appear in the future if not treated right away. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Jeter to new and unfamiliar situations _X_Destructive behavior: Jeter may benefit from crate training when home alone to decrease any chewing of household items as previously reported. He should always be left with durable, long-lasting chews and other engaging toys when he is left alone, to avoid chewing of inappropriate items. Examples are Kongs and Nylabones. The environment should also be managed by keeping household items in locations where Jeter does not have access, so he cannot destroy any household items in his new home.

When off leash at the Care Center, Jeter solicits and engages in high energy play with male and female dogs. He displays coarse social skills, continually soliciting high energy mouthy play after other dogs display appropriate body language that they do not wish to engage. Jeter was brought in as a stray so his past behavior around other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Jeter be placed in a home with well-socialized, tolerant dogs that are comfortable with his high energy play style. 8/29: Jeter greets both male and female dogs with a wiggly, loose, bouncy body. He solicits attention with lip licks and may overwhelm some dogs with his insistence. He does respond well to corrections from a female dog when he jumps onto her body. 8/31: Jeter displays a loose and wiggly body language when interacting with a playful female. He is tolerant of corrections when his play style becomes over-whelming and he self-handicaps by laying down. 5/22/17: Jeter attempts to engage in high energy, mouthy, rowdy play with dogs that are not interested. He does not read their signals that are encouraging him to stop jumping on them and he is slow to respond to handler interruptions. 5/23-5/30: In a group of playful male and female dogs, Jeter continuously solicits and engages in high energy, mouthy play. He needs handler interruptions to take appropriate play breaks to help him regulate his arousal level. 5/31-6/7: Jeter continues to engage in high energy play and responds well to a correction from a dog and engages in gentler play.
