01/13/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Unassuming in his kennel, Smokey watches quietly as he’s leashed. He seems to be sizing up the situation. Unlike most of the other dogs who are clamoring loudly for attention and a walk, Smokey is awfully mellow, climbing slowly out of his den and reluctantly into the big, bad world of the streets that awaits us. He’s not a toughie after all, despite the cropped ears and broad shoulders. Smokey savors the walk with a calm air, and though he is still a bit shy about being touched (and who wouldn’t be with a stranger?), is nonetheless perfectly polite about it, and seems to be a smell-the-roses type of fellow. His coat is the color of a lake on a clear winter morning, and, with some TLC, he could be even more magnificent. At only 5 years old, Smokey is past the problems of puppyhood, seems to have taken more than a few lessons in good manners, and still has his best years ahead of him. Come to Brooklyn ACC soon to meet Smokey! Another volunteer writes: At the moment, Smokey is a timid little lamb of a dog. He comes to us due to a move from the only home he’s known since puppyhood, so I can’t blame him for being a nervous Nellie. Still, though, his sweetness shines through. He warms up with treats (and takes them nicely) and seems housebroken. He wags his tail when I approach his cage and while we’re walking, but is still a little shy with handling. He does stay close to me, readily approaches when I coax him, accepts petting (though, until recently, would tremble), and makes soft eye contact. In his previous home we’re told he spent time with a 3-year-old (he was tolerant and playful), likes to roughhouse, and has a knack for getting into the garbage! He is very petite, has the sweetest eyes, and embodies a vulnerability that makes it impossible not to fall for him. He will need time and a slow approach, but I suspect Smokey has a lot of love to give in return…please come see him at Brooklyn ACC!

Smokey may easily startle and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.) _X_Resource guarding (We cannot be certain whether any guarding or possessive behavior may appear in a home environment, but we recommend adopters comfortable with safe management and modification of guarding behavior in case it does.)
