05/22/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Picnic for two, please! King, donning his finest, fawn-colored coat, is ready to be your park companion this spring and summer. You bring the hot dogs (and the cheese, the crackers, the sandwiches…really you’ll need to bring everything), he’ll bring the kisses! 1 year-old King was surrendered to our care and is said to have lived well with a 6 year-old and another pup of his kind. Yes, our boy is a social butterfly indeed. On our way to the park everyone must be greeted and greeted exuberantly. No need to try and guess what this royal lad is feeling. King is all about love. Loves to jump, loves to play, loves his friends, loves his treats, and most importantly, loves you! Well, he MAY love one thing more than you (forgive him) — and that’s a good, old-fashioned butt scratch. It was virtually impossible to keep a straight face watching King’s “butt dance” once I found the perfect spot. Bust out your dancing shoes because this lad has moves! He wiggled to the left, wiggled to the right, spun himself right round and then leaned in for some more. And more he got. As a young boy, King is full of vim and vigor. Everything is fresh and new to him, and exploring and enjoying life to its fullest is key. He walks well on leash, appears to be housebroken, and most certainly seems to enjoy the company of other pups. Almost as much as he would yours. Handsome King, our King of hearts, is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC. A volunteer writes: King lives up to his name perfectly. A one year old with a lot of spunk and energy, he is a sweet boy at heart. King would benefit the most with an active family and a spacious area to run and play. He is very smart and will learn commands easily with the help of some tasty treats. He knows sit and stay. Don’t be fooled by his size because in King’s mind he is he perfect lap dog. He loves to explore his space and wants to make friends with everyone around him.
06/25/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
King was in a home environment for 3 weeks. He lived with adults but interacted with children, and was gentle, exuberant, playful, and sometimes played roughly with them. With adults he is also a rough, jumpy player and can be mouthy. King needs a significant amount of daily exercise to prevent unwanted behaviors (like chewing shoes), but aside from those two notes no concerning behavior was seen with his previous owner, and no human-directed aggression in the home. However, King did bite a child (9 years old, neighbor) outside the home when the child’s ball rolled into the yard, and both King and the child reached for it. King bit the child’s hand once, let go and retreated. The injury required stitches. We cannot be certain of the trigger for the bite, though it may have involved the ball as a resource. Due to this bite – its unknown trigger and the severity of the injury – King will likely need further investigation into the behavior and positive reinforcement-based behavior modification and guidance to prevent future bite incidents. Since the bite was to a child, we recommend a home without children. 5/4 SAFER: King pulls a bit on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. King was surrendered to us. According to his previous owner King is friendly and outgoing around strangers. He’s spent time with a 6yr old and was gentle, exuberant, playful & somewhat rough with them, also with the adult and male pitbull in the home. King is described as friendly, affectionate, very playful, confident, & excitable with a high activity level. King enjoys playing with ball, squeaky, rope toys and games of fetch & tug. King did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly.He does not place his body between you and the toy.
05/03/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
King engages in play with males and females, very frequently attempting to mount dogs of both sexes during play. King’s previous owner cites that he is “gentle, exuberant, playful & somewhat rough (during play he doesn’t know his strength) also with the adult & male Pitbull in the home”. The behavior department recommends a pre-adoption interaction for King to ensure compatabiltiy with a resident dog. When off leash with other dogs, King is nervous in the yard environment, but opens up and greets with a soft body and low wag. He begins to follow the female greeter while attempting to mount her. 5/4 update: King greets politely, then is most focused in attempting to mount the other dog (female). 5/10 update: King engages in bouts of play with males and females, often attempting to mount both in between. King begins to persistantly mount a younger male dog, and vocalizes when unable to. 5/19 update: King persistantly attempts to mount female dogs in the pen. He begins to bark and growl in response to receiving correction from one of the other dogs. When his leash is picked up to remove him from the pen, he immediately becomes tense and begins to bark/lunge toward the other dogs in the pen. 5/20 update: King engages in wrestling play with a boistrous female. He vocalizes and mouths her during play and eventually focuses on mounting. 5/22 update: King engages in vocal, mouthy play with males and females. 5/23, 24 update: King engages in rough, vocal play with males and females, at times attempting to mount during.
