10/13/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Papillions are very dear to me as they were my beloved moms favorite dogs…So, it is a must for me to meet them when they land at the care center… Lydia …who is a male and a Papillion mix is an elderly gent with chalky eyes and a plush ebony and white coat. Lydia has been straining since the begining of his stay, causing him to bend and squat most of the time. He has been quite cranky until now and not the most sociable. He is old, disturbed by intestinal troubles and it is rather understandable that he wants to be left alone. For the first time yesterday, he eliminated successfully and looked all perky. He even tried to escape his den. He walked nicely, his body all straight and elegant and accepted caresses and even soft treats. I was so happy for him ! I imagine that Lydia must have some issues. A visit to the veterinarian as well as a calm and loving home might just bring back a smile on this senior’s face…Come and meet Lydia at the Manhattan Care Center and give him the chance to spend the rest of his life, safe , cared for and loved.

KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray Other notes: During intake she allows to be handle SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/11/16 Look: 5. Dog freezes Toy: 1.No interest. Summary: Lydia became stiff and uncomfortable during handling he freezes and raised her lip during the look item. The behavior department feels that she would do best if placed with a New Hope partner to address any concerns that may present themselves. PLAYGROUP: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Lydia approaches and greets politely with a wagging tail. Lydia corrects mounting. MEDICAL Behavior: 10/10/16 During her initial medical examination, Lydia is tense and tolerates minimal handling, snapping at her handler upon direct contact. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) (See potential challenges) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Lydia has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake and is now shut down in shelter. Due to this behavior, Lydia is not a candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Lydia has solely displayed fearful behavior in shelter, she displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance/avoid. Because she is so uncomfortable, Lydia does not tolerate any form of human-touch and has snapped upon direct contact.)
