A volunteer writes: Brindled bachelor looking for love! Do you like long walks on the beach (or in the park, on the street, literally anywhere), cuddles by the fireplace (or under the covers, on the couch, anywhere really), and sharing delicious treats under the sun (or by moonlight, in the dark, really the treats are all that matter)? Then have I got a boy for you. Meet Kane! The first thing that will likely spring to mind when you see Kane is “hubba hubba!” But don’t be embarrassed by that, no. That’s normal. With his perfect brindled coat, utterly kissable gorilla nose, and delightfully delicious and batty ears, Kane is a sight for sore eyes (or really any eyes at all). At just 1.5 years-old our lovable Lothario is also quite young and expectedly full of energy and life. He greets me with a joyous “woof!” in his kennel and, immediately won over by his overflowing charms, I invite him on one of those walks. Kane pulls a bit on leash and of course with a face like that and personality to spare, draws attention from all who pass him. “Handsome boy!” “Cuuuute!” “Awww.” But don’t let jealousy overcome you, no, no! For the moment you and Kane retire to a pen he only has eyes for you. Kane sits easily for his treats, poses effortlessly for photos, and happily chomps on a blue squeaky toy, his chosen favorite of the bunch. Whether you’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places or haven’t been looking at all, a summer of love is waiting for you. You just need step out the door to find it. Kane is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.

KNOWN HISTORY: None 12/12/16, first stay at care center Neutered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/8/17 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful, his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 3. Dog appears playful but spins quickly towards the assessor when touched and stiffens. 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. Minimal interest, dog takes toy then drops. Summary: Kane was aloof during his assessment, not paying attention to the assessor for most of it. During tag he was initially playful, but became fearful and froze when tagged. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Kane has been observed to interact playfully with dogs in the care center. At times, he has displayed the potential for over arousal while engaging (becoming tense, growling, and unable to self-regulate). Introductions between Kane and other dogs should be supervised and monitored closely, and conducted slowly. Kane’s previous owner described the potential for him to “bark and lunge at small dogs”. The behavior department recommends that future caretakers of Kane exercise caution in areas where small dogs may be present. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: 6/5/17 Upon intake, Kane had a loose boy and wagging tail. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/6/7 During his initial medical exam, Kane was social and allowed handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: Kane’s previous owner described him as having a high level of activity. He is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. 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 fearful behavior displayed at the care center, we recommend an adult only home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Kane has displayed fearful behavior in the care center, freezing at times. He became especially fearful when he was touched during tag. It is important to always go slow and give Kane the option to walk away from any social interaction. Kane should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Kane’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Kane would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: Kane’s previous owner reported that he will bark and lunge at small dogs; Kane has also been observed to fixate on dogs while on leash in the care centers. Kane may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach him to look at you rather than other dogs and novel stimuli that may startle him. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior. Kane has also displayed barrier frustration in the care centers; we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Kane may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating in his kennel. We recommend potential adopters be comfortable managing this behavior and keeping themselves safe in any similar future situations.
