A volunteer writes: Adopted from us as a puppy, and surrendered due to housing issues, Mr. Nene is understandably confused and disoriented. Happy though to be out for a short walk where he potties immediately, he’s still looking for his person as we walk. He shows off nice leash manners, his coat is sleek and handsome, but it’s off leash in the yard where he comes to life. Ball? Is that a tennis ball? Are you going to throw it? And so our fun begins!! Nene chases the ball, retrieves and then goes right past me not quite ready yet to give it up. When he does his excitement is palpable as his eyes sparkle, he smiles and waits for my toss. He lopes after the ball, elegant on his long legs. We had so much fun, and at one point he put his head in my lap still chomping on the ball. We’re told that he’s a guarder so I never attempted to take his ball away, and he does give a warning look, but he was happy to share on his terms. We’re told that Nene can be shy around strangers at first, and after warming up is playful, affectionate and respectful, and is the same way with other dogs and with cats with whom he plays gently. Nene enjoys getting bathed and brushed, isn’t used to being outside on walks, likes toys and balls, and sleeps in his own bed or with his former person. At 10 years old, Nene has a lot of new things to get used to and I know he will. Respect him and he will respect you which is true of any animal of any age. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with him and you will too. Nene is a term of endearment in Spanish and it shows the love he’s experienced and hopes to experience again.
During intake Nene allowed all handling and being collard. He had a relaxed body but was whining and howling after his previous owner left.

For a New Family to Know: Nena is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, pushy, mellow, independent and shy at times.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/30/17
During his initial medical exam, Nene was tense and growled during handling.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below)
_X_No children (under 13): Due to the level of resource guarding reported by his owner and seen on his assessment, as well as his history of growling at new people, we recommend an adult only home.
_X_Resource guarding: Nene’s previous owner notes that he may growl when his food bowl, treats, or toys are touched. On his assessment, he froze when the toy he was in possession of was touched. We recommend that Nene be left alone while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in his future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Nene’s mouth, and any time something is removed he should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. He should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games.
_X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Nene’s previous owner reported that Nene may growl if approached by strangers. He the care center, he appears fearful. It is important to always go slow and give Nene the option to walk away from any social interaction. Nene should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Nene’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Nene would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
