08/06/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Presenting Sir Troy…a middle-aged guy that knows how to light up a room like no other!! He was found in a crate on the streets of Brooklyn and has been charming everyone that crosses his path ever since! He is in need of some dermatological TLC, but his tail is such a wiggly blur and his eyes are so soulful that you’ll hardly even notice. He sees a friend in every new face, welcomes help scratching his itches, and shows his thanks with kisses and paws-in-the-lap. He is super treat motivated, usually takes them like a gentleman, and already knows “sit.” He’s been fine when we’ve passed other dogs on our walks, has been easy on leash, and seems housebroken. Most of all, he’s impossible not to love!! He would love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC!

PLAYGROUP: Sir Troy greets both a novel male and female with a soft body. He is sexually motivated- attempts to mount- and ignores the other dog’s correction. He explores the pen when handlers interrupt him. Sir Troy was brought in as a stray so his behavior around other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Sir Troy be placed in a home with calm dogs that will tolerate his sexual motivated behavior. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 7/30/17 Sir Troy appears to be friendly. He walks on a leash and loaded into the truck without incident. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/31/17 During the initial examination Sir Troy was easy to do all handling. He was friendly and interactive. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Sir Troy so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment, though Sir Troy displayed medium energy and movement throughout assessment. He will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
