02/20/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Me: Fun, handsome, big (boned) fella looking for love in all the wrong places. Favorite activities include: Long walks in the park (during which I walk beautifully on leash), cozy cuddle sessions on a bench, giving never-ending, sloppy kisses, and smiling all day long! Favorite memory: The day I went for a long walk in the park, cuddled on a bunch, gave never-ending sloppy kisses, and smiled all day long. Likes: Tennis balls, long-lasting chews, the smell of grass…actually most smells…and you definitely you! Dislikes: Being without you. About you: You love to laugh, give great belly rubs (non-negotiable), love to snuggle, love being loved without question, without end, and without judgment until the end of time, and would love to add a sweet, affectionate, well-mannered, gentle giant to your life today. Sound good? Then swipe right, hit “reply,” tap twice, and say “yes”! Yes to the dog of your dreams. Yes to love. Yes to Nox. Nox is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
02/19/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY:None 2/16/17 Unaltered, Male,stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 2/17/2017 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, or low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Summary: Nox was loose and wiggly upon entering SAFER assessment room, at times tried to jump onto the chair. Nox was difficult to return to kennel, bucking reluctantly. He was moved to a bigger kennel and walked right in. Nox may currently not be comfortable in small spaces, if crate training it should never be used as a punishment. All association with the crate should always be positive, such as leaving crate door open and feeding/water bowl inside, or very high value treats only given to him whenever in the crate with door closed. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision. PLAYGROUP: Nox may require time to warm up and become comfortable in social settings with other dogs. The behavior department recommends slow introductions between Nox and polite resident dogs. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/16/17 During his initial medical exam Nox allowed all handling ENERGY LEVEL: Nox displays as a high energy dog during his stay at the care center. He will benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation such as walks, runs, exercise, and play to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: Nox jumped up on assessor with moderate intensity (playfully) several times during assessment, especially during Tag. He would benefit from training to learn the cues ‘focus’ and settle’, as well as not to jump up on people or furniture. _X_Strength/leash pulling
