NOVA – 8087
Gone - 10-9-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Nova. My animal id is #8087. I am a female gray dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks i am about 2 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a data import – incoming on 01-Oct-2017.
Sorry, this pet is for new hope partners only.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Nova is at risk with a New Hope Only behavior determination and with CIRDC. She has been highly fearful since intake and has allowed minimal handling, growling when approached. We have been unable to complete a handling assessment or place her into playgroup as a result.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 47.5625 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment: 1-Oct-2017 Summary: Nova is difficult to remove from kennel, growling and lunging. Out of concern for her stress levels, we feel Nova is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Date of intake: 1-Oct-2017 Summary: Growling, no handling attempted Date of initial: 1-Oct-2017 Summary: Tense, growling ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Nova so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: Upon approach, Nova is laying on her bed, shaking, whale eyeing at the handler, and low growling. When offered treats, she does not show interest. BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: NEW HOPE ONLY Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable Recommendations: No children (under 13) Place with a New Hope partner Recommendations comments: _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Nova is with novel stimuli, we feel an adult only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Nova has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has not allowed handing since intake. 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 to best set Nova up for success in a future adoptive home. Potential challenges: Fearful/potential for defensive aggression Kennel presence Potential challenges comments: _X_Fearful/ potential for defensive aggression: Nova has displayed fearful behavior in shelter, she displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance and avoid contact. It is important to move slowly with Nova. She should never be forced to greet or to interact if she is not comfortable or soliciting attention. _X_Kennel presence: While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Nova may show behavior similar to what she is currently demonstrating in her kennel (see SAFER summary).
