The owner stated that she has become very anxious in the last months and has been destroying items in the home, like the floor, furniture and other things. She has been working very long hours and is unable to give Lady the proper attention that she needs.

05/03/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Lady is said to be an indoor pet. Indeed, she was never walked as she was too wary of the street according to her former owner, who also said she never was around any other dog or cat. She is known to like children, though and was gentle with them. It must be quite a shock for a dog like Lady to land in a place like the care center. She listens to me carefully though, gets up when I open her den, and is leashed without issue. She walks with a low body, tail between her legs and eliminates as soon as we reach the yard. Free in a pen, she slowly explores, then settles under a bench. I know that she must have a good appetite as she is not thin, but right now doesn’t seem too interested in treats. I took her out again that evening. She had made tiny progresses, walking better on the leash and accepting caresses: baby steps toward opening up. I am hoping that more walks, as well as time with her peers, will unveil a happier dog. Lady is otherwise said to be affectionate, friendly, playful and of low activity level. What she needs is an owner or family able to make some room and some time for her, love her to pieces and allow Lady to become again a happy, giving and loving pet. Lady is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming of a new wonderful life. Another volunteer writes: Lady is clearly used to better things, and it takes her a while to decide we should be friends. Finally sitting up front in her kennel, I took this as a sign she was ready, leashed her easily and out she hopped. Once outside, Lady went potty (she’s mostly wee wee pad trained per her former owner). We take a short walk and then head into the yard for some off leash time. Lady lived with a family, and now she has none. She needs stability, attention, love and to feel safe. As little dogs pass our pen she goes over to say hello, her tail giving a slight wag in greeting. Lady is ready for a new family of her own to love and to cherish and who will understand her needs. We’re rooting for her to find her special someone quickly.
05/03/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lady was difficult to remove from her kennel she was in the back with a fearful body language and she raised her lips. Once she safely removed from her kennel Lady pulls a bit on leash. Lady will approach to the handler but she do not allow the assessor to run the assessment she raised her lips with a low body, tucked tail and tries to escape from the assessor. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Lady was not interested in toys. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Toy: 1. No interest. Playgroup Notes: When Lady is off leash with another dog she is nervous and tries to avoid the other dog.
