Owner had 3 other dogs in the home and stated that when Nyla was introduced to 2 of them, she started lip curling, barking and lunging after the other dogs. Behavior: Owner has never tried to take her food away, give her a bath or trim her nails so she is not sure as to how Nyla would react to having it done. OWner did mention that Nyla seems nervous around eating in front of other people and would not eat around owner until she left the room in the beginning. Nyla will growl when her treats are taken away. She is friendly when being pushed off furniture, having her toy taken away, having her coat brushed,being held/restrained, and when being disturbed when she is sleeping.

05/20/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Nyla is simply a delight!! She solicits attention from her cage and seems to see a friend in every new face. Not surprisingly, her previous owner says she’ll “walk up to just about anybody.” She has previously lived with infants and children and was very playful with them. Although she hasn’t lived with cats or dogs, she is reported to be calm when passing them and she has been trying out her social skills in our playgroups (she can be overly eager to play, but overall has done well!). She didn’t show any guarding issues in her last home and was even friendly if disturbed while sleeping…way to make the rest of us look bad, Nyla! She is always super fun and engaging when I take her out. She seems housebroken (and has previously been crate trained), loves to play fetch and will give “paw” for treats. Her eyes glow with an inner warmth and her wiggly back end emanates the joy she feels in the company of people. I can’t think of a better face to come home to! Please come meet Nyla at Brooklyn ACC…you’ll make her day!
