A volunteer writes: Remy is the cutest little gremlin! She might be a little hesitant at first, but give her a minute and she’ll stretch her back legs, mosey your way, and give little kisses all over your face. She has some healing wounds so needs to be leashed a certain way and is very helpful lifting her paw to step into it — such a smart cookie! She has awesome leash manners, seems housebroken, and is the best listener. She knows “sit,” “stay” and seems very obedient and treat motivated. She’s also very toy motivated! Remy is a fetching super star and walks around so naturally with the ball in her mouth it almost looks like just another part of her body. She easily lets me take it from her, is very wiggly anticipating the next throw, and remains very gentle even if she sprawls out to chew it. She recently crossed into uncharted cuteness territory when I found her in her cage with her paw literally wrapped around a stuffed owl. Did I mention if she’s on the verge of sneezing she looks like she’s smiling? Remy is ready to pack her stuffed owl and bring her sweet charms to a home. Please come meet her at Brooklyn ACC and see if it might be yours!

Remy came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Remy was a little shy but she allowed all handling. During SAFER Remy came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, she was friendly and social towards the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Remy was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Remy was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Remy appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her 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.
Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral.
