A volunteer writes: Before we even make it outside I think it’s possible Saniyah could leave me with a small bruise — she walks right at my side and her tail hits my leg in the same spot as it constantly wags back and forth. This girl is a real treat!! When I take her off leash she follows me around, initiates gentle play, diligently licks my hands when I pet her, and pretty much makes it seem like the entire world is just us. Not only does she have the kindest eyes and the sweetest personality, Saniyah has some training too: she seems housebroken, has good leash manners, and knows “sit” (she’s very treat motivated…good thing considering she needs to put some meat on her bones!). She even manages to make lemonade out of lemons when I put her back in her cage as she adorably engages with a squeaky toy that I’m sure has been there all day as if it’s a newly discovered treasure. On each of our outings Saniyah has been consistently affectionate, attentive and wiggly. While she hasn’t actually bruised my leg, she’s definitely left a mark on my heart! She would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC!
Saniyah came in as a stray; her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Saniyah had loose body posture with her tail wagging. During SAFER Saniyah came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, she was friendly and affectionate towards the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Saniyah joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Saniyah was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Saniyah 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 holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
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. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog might jump on Assessor once play begins.
Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog licks, then turns away.
When off leash with other dogs, Saniyah greets politely with a soft body. She solicit one play bow before exploring her surroundings. She will offer corrections with high energy and sexually motivated males before becoming over-whelmed.
Update 4/20: Saniyah was used as a helper dog today. She greeted softly at the gate and was respectful of nervous dogs.
4/21 Update: Saniyah still greets with a soft body and is uncomfortable with sexually motivated males.
4/24- 4/25 update:
Saniyah is uncomfortable with high energy, pushy dogs and will offer appropriate corrections for their behavior.
4/26: Saniyah avoided greeting the other dogs at the gate today. When the pen door was opened she becomes conflicted throughout her interaction; giving play bows but correcting when the dog reciprocates.
