A volunteer writes: Modoc…What’s in a name? The Modocs were an Indian Tribe but Modoc was also a circus elephant whose inseparable friend, a little boy, sailed as a stow away from Germany to America not to be separated from his “pet”. Read the story…Our Modoc is like an elephant in a china store…He was born to be wild…He is so calm in his kennel, though but when he sees a potential caretaker, Modoc gets all worked up… He is house trained, loves to run and mostly to play…Modoc is very strong and needs to be harnessed to go to the park. He pulls on the leash, does his business without much marking, does not chase the birds, eyes the squirrels without giving them a chase and is polite with other dogs met. His favorite place (and mine) is the yard. Having spent already a few sessions with him, Modoc knows the place and immediately goes to the tennis balls box. He even opens it himself…Instant gratification. Modoc is a bit demanding for treats and toys. Although he will sit on command, he will bark to get what he demanded. I love that determined face of his, his jowls that make a clear statement, his stance and the power with which he throws himself in the air, gives head shots and catches the ball that he likes to swing between his paws and then chew.. Of note is that Modoc does not appear to guard his stuff even that he loves it so much. Modoc is all white except for 3 brown spots. He is a bit unkept, very slightly underweight and possibly hard of hearing which could explain a little his demanding behavior. Modoc is one of a kind and he needs one of a kind new owner to appreciate his virtues. I cannot help myself but to like him although he is a bit too strong for me. Come and meet our boy here at the Manhattan Care Center. He is a young guy with whom you could build unforgettable memories.
04/24/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 4/22/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 4/24/2017 Look: 1. Dog jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, licks hand. Tag: 2. Dog follows at the end of the leash, a bit distracted. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1:1. Dog gently pulls back paw, licks hand. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: 1. Dog playfully engages, keeps a firm grip, body loose. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Summary: Modoc displayed no concerning behavior during his assessment, consistently social and interactive. PLAYGROUP: Modoc has displayed discomfort during his dog-dog introduction in the care center- stiffening, freezing, and growling upon approach. The behavior department recommends a single dog residence for Modoc until follow up can be conducted outside of the care center. Follow up should be conducted using force free, positive reinforcement methods. Modoc should never be forced to interact with other dogs if uncomfortable. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/22/17 During his initial medical exam, Modoc was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Modoc so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home. In the care center, Modoc is a young, enthusiastic, social dog. We will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined below) _X_Single-pet home – Modoc became uncomfortable during playgroup, body stiff and growling. He will do best as the only resident dog. _X_Recommend no dog parks – Modoc appeared soft initially but became tense once off leash with other dogs. Because of this, we recommend no dog parks. _X_Strength/Leash pulling – Modoc is a very large, strong dog with the capability to pull over an average adopter. His adopter must be prepared and able to handle a dog of this size and strength. It is recommended that he be walked on a front clip harness or head halter, which help diminish his strength through leverage, and that he be trained using positive reinforcement, reward based training to not pull on leash.
