A volunteer writes:
LaBrea is a very thin female found as a stray. She is young at two years of age and wears a very shiny dark coat, a white scarf and mittens. She is quite hungry which is understandable seen her dismal weight. LaBrea is friendly and likes to be petted, leaning comfortable against me to get the most of her session… .She was at first quite wary of people and other dogs but she seems to feel better. She is fed, sheltered and walked. I think she needed time to rest from her unclement life that has left her with worried look. LaBrea walks quite well on the leash and eliminates on the way. She is fine meeting dogs her size but chases birds, squirrels and might not be suitable for small animals. She sits and stays on command or for treats. LaBrea, I imagine, had a difficult life before to be admitted to the care center. I wonder if she does even know what it is to be a pet, the way we see it…Would not it be nice to show her what life could be , loved and cared for by a dedicated master? LaBrea is at the Manhattan Care Center, waiting for a beautiful dream to come true.
La Brea is a great girl. She came to us for an event and did fantastic but did not get adopted. Her foster said she is good with dogs but should go to a home with NO cats and does need some training.
La Brea walked calmly on leash and may be house trained – toileted immediately when taken outside. She was friendly and sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. La Brea was tense during handling, but had soft body language, then appeared distracted and focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the arousal game. She did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl, and was easy to handle when chewing on toys, but was not interested in rawhide. La Brea approached the helper dog with friendly body language.
