SILVER – 18872
Safe - 1-30-2018 Brooklyn Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Silver. My animal id is #18872. I am a female gray dog at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 7 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 21-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- moving – no pets allowed.
Silver is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, we suggest that Silver would be best suited to an experienced dog home.

Summary:: Silver came into the assessment room very loose and wiggly, she was friendly and playful towards the handlers.
Summary (1):: Silver’s previous guardian reported that she has been to dog parks and is playful with the other dogs when there. 1/22: When off leash at the Care Center, Silver enters the yard anxiously pacing, jumping on handlers and whining. She greets the novel male dog at the gate with several barks, but walks away. When the gate is opened Silver solicits attention with bounces and spins, and offers a hard correction when the male attempts to mount her.
Date of intake:: 1/21/2018

Date of initial:: 1/23/2018
Summary:: Sweet, active, allowed all handling
ENERGY LEVEL:: Silver displays a very high activity level in the care center.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Behavior Asilomar: TM – Treatable-Manageable
Potential challenges: : Anxiety
Potential challenges comments:: Anxiety: Silver has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, panting and pacing back and forth) continually through the SAFER. This behavior was not reported at intake, the owner profile does not note anxiety so we cannot be certain whether this behavior will continue in a future home, or whether it is specific to the shelter environment.
