A volunteer writes: Innocence is the first word that came to my mind when I spotted Limonata in her kennel, so quiet, one paw resting over the other.. Snow white with dotted ears and a smudged pink truffle with chocolate. What a pretty sight ! Limonata is eager to spring out of her den. She is 6 month old and full of life. She dances on the leash. May be she never knew one. Do not worry, she will figure it out pretty quickly. She is so excited to be out and in company and she is a little bit all over the place. She is so silly ! We are playing catch, wrestle gently…We are having fun and Limonata does not want to see the end of the game. She is occasionally softly mouthy(remember she is a puppy). She can sit on command and for treats and is a very interactive lap dog, arm dog and over the shoulder dog…A great kisser and hugger she is. She loves to be caressed and smooched all over. Limonata is up for anything you might want to propose her… She is a youngster and as a result, she has a very open mind…Limonata is a beautiful young damsel, a puppy , though and she will need additional basic training to make of her a stellar adult. She seems to have been well cared for by her former owners, has a great weight and is perfectly groomed. Come and meet this little beauty at the Manhattan Care Center and make her your little princess.
From the foster home: Hi! My name is Limonata. I’m 7 months old! My foster mom says I’m the prettiest girl ever, and I have to say… I think I agree! My foster mom thinks that I might not be able to hear very well- if at all, but that’s okay, because she’s teaching me a lot of cool ways to communicate with the world. I understand hand signs for ‘Sit’ ‘Paw’ ‘Come’ and I’m learning ‘Down’ and ‘Leave-It’. She also says that I walk pretty great on my leash. We worked really hard on my leash manners, and she gave me a pretty red harness. I think all the other dogs on the street are gonna be jealous! My doggie foster brother has the same harness too. Speaking of that guy, he’s pretty cool. I love playing with doggies and living with a dog has been SO FUN! We do everything together. We play a lot, and then I use him as a pillow when I’m tired. I also have a foster sister, she’s a cat. I wanted to play with her so bad when we first met, but she told me doesn’t want to play with me, and I understand. She’s no fun anyways, so I just ignore her until bedtime because we all sleep on our bed. Sometimes foster mom is allowed in the bed… but it’s really OUR bed. Anyway, it was fun introducing myself! My foster mom says I’m super fun. I love toys, treats, and playtime. I also love learning new things, and I’ve been doing great with my housebreaking and crate training schedule. I really hope you enjoyed reading about me, and I hope we get to meet someday, because I LOVE meeting new people!
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity:2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. Mouths the assessor’s hand with light pressure.
Tag: Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Distracted at times.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
Toy: 1. Minimal interest. Dog plays with toy, quickly loses interest.
Summary: Though seemingly human social, Limonata was very jumpy and mouthy throughout the assessment. Limonata may benefit from daily mental/physical stimulation.
10/25: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Limonata engages in soft play with males and females.
Limonata readily allowed all handling without issue during her initial medical examination.
_X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control (It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended.)
_X_Mouthiness/Poor bite inhibition (Decreasing the force of the mouth as well as the frequency of mouthing, in this order is recommended by using force-free, reward based training as well to reinforce a soft appropriate mouth and redirect hard inappropriate mouthing onto toys.)
