Rozzy is a most beautiful dog and although I know that I am only an amateur photographer, I was never able to get a good picture of him. His ears rarely perk up and my camera is too slow to catch them in action… Rozzy is a gorgeous dog, part Collie, owns a trim body, is well dressed and is perched on very long legs . He is a young and very active dog who waits calmly and humbly in his den for someone to take him out. Nothing predicts, looking at him that he is truly an athlete who given a chance could be a fierce competitor in a frisbee’s contest. I would so bet on him being a winner ! He is a very friendly character who owns a very large smile and wags his tail non stop. He jumps very high for the ball or a treat and even pirouets in the air. Not that he can not sit on command…. He certainly does. Rozzy walks very nicely on the leash, does his business without marking and mets properly other dogs, big and small. In playgroups with his peers, upclose, he has been a bit uncomfortable. I did not observe any bird or squirrel chasing. He welcomes total strangers and likes his kennel staff or the volunteers who have been walking him. Yes, I can say that he is a friendly and social pooch who likes to be in company. Does Rozzy like to be close to his caretaker? He surely does, mostly after a good stroll and a ball game. Rozzy sits by my side, puts his head in my lap and waits for his share of love… Rozzy is one of a kind dog who would make a wonderful friend for an active owner who likes to run, hikes and play. Rozzy is at the Manhattan Care Center, already dreaming of his new begining with …you.
Kramer pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Kramer did a lot of jumping up, body checking and played tug-of-war with the leash during tag interaction. He was not interested in toys.
Kramer show a bit of concern during the tag interaction he became a bit over arousal. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification.

posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 3. Dog responds with her tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body stiff and body checks the Assessor. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room.

Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy: 1. No interest.
7/21: When off leash with other dogs, Rozzy is polite when greeting, hackles are a bit raised. When the helper solicits, he offers a loud correction.
7/22 update: Rozzy is sexually motivated, consistently following the female helper dog. He solicits play at one point by offering paw slaps and vocalizing. When he greets a male through the gate he stiffens, barks and growls.
