A volunteer writes: Kelly is an absolute treasure! We don’t know much about her life prior to joining us, but she really seems like an incredibly well-rounded dog. She walks beautifully on leash (she’s even been used to help show new volunteers the ropes!), seems housebroken, and has done very well with other dogs in our playgroups (she’s been bouncy with both males and females). She loves treats (she knows “sit” but might jump up if I’m taking too long to find her prize) and toys (she’ll toss them for herself!) and while she deserves to be showered with them, she strikes me as a gal that wouldn’t ask for much. She is super friendly, wags her tail throughout our walks, gently props her paws up on me after we exchange looks about how much we like each other, will hang out on my lap, loves to be pet, AND on special occasions she perks her ears straight up and instantly transforms into the most adorable bunny rabbit! She is super sweet, fun, well-behaved, and meant to be someone’s best friend…she would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC!
KNOWN HISTORY: None
Unaltered Female, Stray
Other notes: Upon intake Kelly was wagging her tail and calm, she allowed all handling.
Look:1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity:1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
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. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Summary: Kelly was very friendly and playful towards the assessor, she displayed no concerns.
Kelly was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Kelly engages in gentle play with male and female dogs. She is utilized as a greeter dog and displays soft body language and offers appropriate correction when a male attempts to mount her. Kelly has shown great sociability towards other dogs at the Care Center and would likely do well with dogs of varying personalities.
During her medical examination, Kelly was sociable and allowed all handling.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
