12/12/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Red! What an absolute beauty! And he really does have a deep, soft reddish coat that you just can’t help but admire. Red is very quiet in his cage and seems a bit shy– probably not loving all the noise in the shelter– until I get him out to go for a walk. As soon as he’s got his leash on, Red brightens up and starts wagging his tail. Red is easy to walk (he doesn’t pull, and checks in with his walker all the time– especially to try to jump up and give kisses!), and seems to be housetrained. If you’re looking for a laidback, affectionate, and handsome companion, please come and see Red today at the Brooklyn ACC.

Summary: Red can be very shy but is social when given time to warm up at his own pace DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: According to Red’s previous owner, Red lived with another dog. No further information was provided. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Red is nervous as he greets the novel female dog with a tense face and tucked tail. He checks in on her and is tolerant of her face to face greetings as he explores the pen, relaxing slightly as the session continues. Red displays loose and wiggly body language when interacting with a calm male dog. He is anxious, pacing and panting throughout the session. He is social, checking in on the other male often. IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: 12/13: Due to Red’s increased leash reactivity since arriving at the care center, the Behavior Team does not feel he is a suitable candidate for the adoptions room due to safety concerns. Placement should be sought as soon as possible for his well-being. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/8/16: During his medical examination, Red was nervous but did allow all handling, ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience) Red has been a bit hesitant to interact in the care center, though he manages his stress appropriately. We recommend adopters who will allow Red to warm up to his new family and new home at his own pace.
