03/02/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Ten month old Luna came with puppy Brooklyn( may be her twin as they are the same age) as their respective owners met difficult times. Brooklyn is the shy of the pair. Luna, who we first and rightly named Firefly is the tomboy. She does not belong to a kennel, she wants to run free. Luna is at her door, ready to spring out. She agrees to sit, though as I present her with the leash. A little treat is most welcome and goes a long way… Luna is ready to go around the block. She sniffs a lot during our strolls, sometimes walks at my pace or sprints, not sure where she wants to go. She could be housetrained as she relieves herself at each of our outings. Luna is an energetic and very active gal, a little unfocused, at least within our walls that she does not recognize as part of her familiar life. She has been beautifully cared for by her former master and I bet that she was loved. Indeed, Luna might seem at first aloof and distracted but give her some time in your encounter with her and you will see a very different dog. This pretty grey mouse will find her way to your lap and rest her head against your chest for kisses and hugs. Yes, a tender puppy soul is hiding under Luna little bully’s looks…Luna is anxiously waiting for her life to turn around…with you… Come and meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.

Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy. Summary: Firefly appeared social but became tense with up close handling, stiffening when her paw was touched. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 2/23: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Firefly is nervous though allows greeting. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/22/17 During her initial medical exam, Firefly allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Firefly so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_ No young children (under 5): Firefly appears to become uncomfortable with up close handling, so we advise against a home with young children at this time. Older, gentle children may be considered with an in depth interaction. Potential challenges: _X Handling/touch sensitivity (On her assessment, Firefly became uncomfortable with up close handling. It is important to always go slow and give Firefly the option to walk away from any social interaction. Firefly should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Firefly’s choice to approach a new person or thing.)
