07/18/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: When I recently went to take Shadow for a walk and ended up in front of a seemingly empty cage, I was sure that someone realized what a sweet, mild-mannered, intelligent lady she is and scooped her up! That is, until I noticed a little bit of movement and a nose peeking out from behind the edge of the blanket! Shadow has been shy and seems out of her element at the shelter, but has come up with THE most endearing coping mechanism…hiding completely under her bed! She is happy to go out and about, but isn’t ready to be cuddly yet (we’re getting there!) and her amazing feats don’t stop at magically fitting into small spaces: she walks beautifully on leash, seems housebroken, and already knows “sit”, “paw” and “down.” She has brief bouts of being waggy, playful (she loves fetch!), and even affection-seeking, but for a sensitive gal in a bustling place like this, it’s easy for nerves to get in the way. She’s hoping to upgrade to a fort with higher ceilings and one that comes with a resident human to love…come see her at Brooklyn ACC and see if that might be you!

Minimal interest in toy, dog smells, then turns away. Summary: Shadow was difficult to position for up-close tactile handling, attempted to increase distance between dog and assessor she avoided eye contact, but tolerated handling once positioned. Shadow was tense and uneasy throughout the handling assessment. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Shadow displays neutral body language when greeting novel male and female dogs and chooses to keep to herself. According to Shadow’s finder, Shadow got along with another dog in the house during her time there and was seen trying to engage playfully with the other dog. The Behavior Department recommends that Shadow be placed with dogs that match her calm sociability. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 7/6/17 Shadow would not allow for the counselor to remove her harness. She was barking and pacing around. She would turn her head when counselor reached down for the buckle. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/6/17 Shadow was tense during her initial medical examination ENERGY LEVEL: Finder reports a high activity level, which does not match what we have seen in the care center. Shadow displayed low energy and movement throughout assessment. Shadow will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: (Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the (behaviors outlined below). _X_No children (under 13): Shadow appears to easily startle and become uncomfortable with up close handling, for these reasons we advise against a home with children at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Shadow has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times, especially when a person is reaching over her. It is important to always go slow and give Shadow the option to walk away from any social interaction. Shadow should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Shadow’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Shadow may do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings. _X_Fearful: Though observed to be human-social, Shadow may need time to warm up to the handler as she initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Shadow to interact at her own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations.
