05/23/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/23/16 09:42 Ronaldo is an adult male APBT mix. He was found outside on the street. He was friendly with his finder. Ronaldo was tense and sat under a chair for the first few minutes of his intake. He did come out, approach us, and allow handling (scan -, collar, positioning for pictures).
05/22/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Who’s tiny, sweet and snuggly and rocks a bow tie and grey tux better than anyone in the history of ever? If you guessed Ronaldo, you’re not wrong! I fell head-over-heels for this itty bitty Pittie from the moment we met and even though he wasn’t so sure about me at first and backed away from my leash in fear, as soon as we were alone together he relaxed into a little cuddlebug who wanted nothing more than to be loved and on my lap. Ronaldo walks well on leash, seems house trained, knows come and sit and is more than happy to show them off for the reward of a treat (he ‘begs’ too) and while he was a bit timid around other dogs we passed I’m sure that with slow introductions and friendly company he’ll be the life of the party in no time–he’s certainly dressed for it! At just 27 pounds Ronaldo won’t take up much room in your home but you’ll need to make plenty of space in your heart because this one-of-a-kind pup is going to steal it all and then some. Your chance to give a little guy the big break he deserves is waiting at our Manhattan Care Center and Ronaldo would love to see you, please don’t make him wait too long…
05/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ronaldo pulls a bit on the leash. He approaches the assessor with a friendly body language. During the assessment Ronaldo was a bit tense during handling, with fearful body language. He show some concerning behavior during the tag interaction he growled and tried to bite the assessor. The behavior team decided to skip the squeeze part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Ronaldo was not interested in toys. The behavior department feels that Ronaldo would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is low, body a bit stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 5. Dog growls and snaps. Toy: 1. No interest. Playgroup Notes: When off leash with other dogs Ronaldo ignores the helper dog and explores the yard.
