03/16/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/16/17 11:15 On intake, Kodak’s tail was wagging the whole time. He jumped up onto counselor and licked her. Counselor asked him to sit and he took a treat gently from her hands but did not eat it. He allowed her to pet his head and back. He sat for collaring but kept trying to jump up. Counselor walked him over to area for picture taking and he sat nicely at first but kept trying to jump up towards the camera as well. His tail did not stop wagging.

A volunteer writes: I had an eye on Kodak for quite a while and I finally got my chance to take him out. He does “play monkey” in his kennel, but that is because he is young, does not belong in there, is energetic and so wants to be in company. He is a super duper tail wagger and loves to jump for kisses and hugs. I must say that he is quite silly. He walks surprisingly rather well on the leash, does his business with lots of marking and is a bit of a macho man. He sits so nicely on command and loves treats that he takes pretty decently from my fingers. Kodak is cute and compact and knows how to pose for pictures. Well, his name is not Kodak for nothing. He is really good looking, wears a jet black coat, lit with white patches. His one ear up and sparkling dark eyes give him such an attractive and naughty look that I totally fell for. Kodak is with us as he got into an unsought squabble with his housemate Jay (who is un-neutered male, too). Jay bit him and Kodak accidentally bit the hand trying to separate them. I imagine that after a well needed neutering, a suitable companion (if there is to be one) will have to be found for Kodak. Kodak is so worth a meet and greet. He is a friendly and sociable character, affectionat,e too, and could make an awesome forever best friend if given a chance. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center! Another volunteer writes: What a sweetheart! With his big ears, saucer-like wide eyes, and little smidge of white along the side of his nose, I fell in love with this wiggly friendly boy. He won my “best face on the planet” award, as how can you look into those eyes and not fall in love? Kodak seems to be housetrained, pulls on the leash so a harness might be good, and he’s lively, fun and affectionate. He loves treats, trying to steal them from my bag (cute move Kodak!) and takes them gently. He’ll be easy to train with positive reinforcement since he’s so treat-motivated. Makes for a star pupil!!! Kodak will happily be your one and only best friend, and is hoping you’ll stop by to meet him today.
Another volunteer writes: Ask any staff or volunteer who has the best personality, best smile and is the most fun dog and I bet everyone will mention Kodak. He’s a little sprite in a shiny black coat, fun, lively, happy to meet new people, loves playing with toys and balls and has the best smile on the planet. Likely housetrained, he’s been pulling on the leash lately in his happiness to be out for a walk, loves treats, sits nicely when asked, and between his million dollar smile, wagging tail and sparkling eyes, the room absolutely lights up when he’s in it. His playful energy is a joy to watch, and while he needs to be an only dog, he’s able to amuse himself in play so doesn’t need a canine playmate. His heart is pure gold when it comes to the people in his life, so let this little guy shower you with tail wags and joy. Meet Kodak and let the good times roll!!
03/29/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Limited Profile 3/16/17 Unaltered Male, Stray Bite history: Yes, Kodak got into a fight with the other dog in the home and he bit the owner’s sister when she put her hand near his mouth while fighting trying to break up the dogs. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/29/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. 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: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. 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. Summary: Kodak displayed no concerning behaviors on his assessment, he was social throughout. PLAYGROUP: Due to DOH quarantine status, Kodak is muzzled for off leash interaction. Kodak greets with a slightly stiff body but engages in polite greeting. He becomes tense and vocal when play is solicited by the other dog. Kodak has history of incident with the other dog in his previous home. When previous owner was “walking Kodak outside and when she got inside, the other dog in the home was walking around the home and approached Kodak. Kodak and the other dog began to fight and, bit Kodak on top of his head.” No further details were provided on this incident. Due to lack of information on Kodak’s previous inicdent, and observation in our care, the behavior department recommends a single dog residence for Kodak until follow up on his behavior around dogs can be conducted outside of the care center. Follow up around other dogs should be conducted slowly around polite, non-reactive dogs, using force-free positive reinforcement methods. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/16/17 During his initial medical exam, Kodak was active and allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Kodak so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, 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: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration (Kodak got into a fight in his previous home when he was on leash and the other dog in the home approached him. Positive reinforcement, reward based training should be used to teach him a “Look” cue, to pay attention to his walker rather than his surroundings.) UPDATE 4/13: Kodak is showing signs of frustration, likely due to his long stay in the kennel. He has begun elevator jumping in his kennel and barking at the dogs housed on either side of him. In order to decrease his stress level and prevent continued rehearsal of these behaviors, we recommend that Kodak move into a stable home environment as quickly as possible.
