06/20/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/20/16 14:22 Kane can be shy and skittish around strangers but it only takes him a couple of minutes to acclimate to new people and novel environments. When playing with his owner and some other adults he can be very energetic and rough and will also play bite and nibble. He has been around kids ages 6-17 and is much more gentle when playing and mostly just likes to lick them, be pet and recieve attention. Kane shared a home with a teacup yorkie, the yorkie sometimes barked at him and didn’t like him and sometimes got along with him but no matter how the yorkie acted Kane never got aggressive, he just liked to play, run towards and away and tease the teacup yorkie. He has never interacted with other dogs outside of his home nor any cats but is curious about cats. Kane has only had about five to ten bowel movement accidents during his 3 years with his owner. He does like to bark a lot and doesnt destroy anything but his own toys and bedding. He is very nervous around loud noises and will hide and does not at all like large trucks driving past him and will panic, trying to run away and pull the walker. Kane does not mind if you touch or take away his food or bone and if you try to take away his toy he will just think you are trying to play. He really doesn;t like baths or water and will run away and will need to be restrained for a bath but does not react defensively. just pulls away. Kane is described as being friendly, hyper and a good alert dog because if anyone comes close to the door he will make a sound to let his owners know. He is described as a very high energy pet and likes to follow his owner around. His favorite activiteis are tug and running. He is kept mostly indoors and is very house trained but used to be kept in a crate. There were a few times that he used the bathroom in the crate and it is perfectly in his water bowl but that could be an elaborate ploy to be let out of the cage. The commands he knows are sit, come , no and yes. When on the leash he pulls very hard and if off leash he will wander if there is space or but will come back if called. He prefers to use the bathroom on grass then kick up grass and dirt afterwards. He is fed pedigree large dog dry food once a day but it lasts all day.

A volunteer writes: It did not take long for me to get to like Kane. He is an energetic, happy go lucky and attractive guy who presented at first to us as a very scared big mouse …True that he owns a sensitive soul as per his owners comments. Kane indeed would need to warm up a little with new people or situations. He does not like loud noises, etc…Well, coming to the care center was no doubt a big shock to him but he is recoverring and this is all what really counts…Kane is a gorgeous dog and a mix of a number of breeds. I see a Rotweiler, a Labrador and a Beauceron and I bet you might even see something else…He has been beautifully cared for, is the picture of health, the perfect weight and owns a magnificent coat with vibrant colors. He has the greatest smile and very engaging eyes that would earn him a job as a successful advertising agent. Kane could sell you anything he wants to… Kane pulls on the leash and does his business on the way. He seems fine with other dogs met on the street or in playgroups. Free in a pen, he comes right away when called, sits on command, comes on the lap and kisses without being asked….mostly when you have fed him tasty treats right before. Indeed, Kane loves food….Kane, relinquished into our care because of housing issues, comes with great recommendations. High energy, very playful, exuberant with adults but gentle with children, great with his little Yorkie housemate, free of handling issues and non destructive(except of his toys) when left alone in the house. Kane is an awesome dog who made a quick turn around for the best after his arrival at the care center. Imagine him in your house, with new people, new settings and new rules….This smart guy has great adaptation and survival skills and will be your best pal, in no time, in your experienced hands. Come and meet our Kane at the Manhattan Care Center and make him yours.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Kane came into our center as an owner surrender citing housing issues. It is reported he lived with children ages 6-17, gentle with them, as well as lived with a small teacup yorkie, and is housebroken. Behavior around cats is unknown. It is reported he isn’t bothered if anyone touches his Food, Toy, Treats. Kane was nervous coming out of the kennel for his relief walk, tail tucked, head low. He was cautious and alert upon entering SAFER assessment room, eyes on assessor’s every movement, but tolerated all handling. Kane allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, tail tucked, eyes wide. He leaned into assessor slightly during Sensitivity item, mouth closed, tense, tail down. Kane became uncomfortable during Tag game, turning towards hand at each pass, fearful and did not initially approach assessor at end of game. He pulled his paw back during Squeeze item, lip long, eyes wide. Kane showed minimal interest in Toy, backing away fearfully at approaching assess-a-hand. Owner reports his favorite activities are tug and running. The Behavior Team feels Kane would do best with an Experienced adopter that does not have children. He will benefit initially from a calm, quiet, structured environment so he can relax and know what to expect. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful, his tail is tucked. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2.

Kane was initially playful and engaging with males and females but has recently become solely sexually motivated (he is currently unaltered). His previous owner reports Kane “shared a home with a teacup yorkie, the yorkie sometimes barked at him and didn’t like him and sometimes got along with him but no matter how the yorkie acted Kane never got aggressive, he just liked to play, run towards and away and tease the teacup yorkie. He has never interacted with other dogs outside of his home.” The behavior department feels that Kane could go to a home with a social, playful dog. 6/21: When off leash with other dogs, Kane engages in bouts of play with intent to mount. 6/22: Kane displays appeasement behaviors greeting a male, then engages in play when solicited. 6/23: Kane is persistantly sexually motivated. 6/24 update: Kane, again, is sexually motivated, but after a few corrections he does cease.
