A staff member writes: Just like his name, Smores is as sweet as they come! I can not emphasize enough how much this dog loves people! He has become our unoffical mascot, hanging out with everyone is our front offices and loving every minute of it. This pup would be happiest curled up next to you or just placing his head in your lap. Come see this cutie pie in Brooklyn today! A volunteer writes: If Stealing Hearts were a video game, new levels would have to be created for Smores! He arrived as a stray, but with just a little TLC, the most adorable, wiggly, Petey-patch wearing puppy was revealed! He definitely hit a rough spot, but it seems Smores was cared about at some point. He is very social and redefines the standard of being a mush. He is all about snuggling — he’s always gently propping his paws up on me, tries to make himself one with the nearest lap, generously gives kisses, and graciously solicits belly rubs. He was a little bashful when we first met, but now talks to me from his cage (accompanied by the sound of his tail thumping against the wall!). For the most part he has wonderful leash manners and he even seems to have housetraining. He LOVES toys, seems familiar with fetch, and is gentle with stuffy toys (unless he’s been cooped up a long time). Smores has everyone’s heart at the care center, but I’m sure he’d trade them all in if he could just have yours! Please come meet this incredibly sweet boy at Brooklyn ACC!

Helper dog: A1064288 Smores came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Smores was friendly and quiet, no handling was conducted due to acute medical condition. During SAFER Smores came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was friendly and very affectionate towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Smores follows the handler with his body a low and a bit fearful during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Smores was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Smores appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for a “Average” adopter. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1.

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Smores greets other dogs with a soft, wiggly body. He exchanges sniffs and attempts to solicit play with a bounce and play bows. He also engages in fluid, rowdy play with both male and female dogs. He is still a play skill novice and may be a little overwhelming for some calmer dogs however he also learns very quickly appropriate behavior responses. Due to his behavior in play group, the Behavior Department feels that Smores is suitable for a home with either male or female dogs of any temperament or play style, as long as an appropriate introduction is conducted. When of leash with other dogs, Smores greets the other dog with a soft, wiggly body. He exchanges sniffs and attempts to solicit play with a bounce and play bows. Unfortunately the helper dog was distracted by the rain and did not reciprocate.

He became a little frustrated, whining and jumping up on the handlers, when another dog would not reciprocate play with him. 3/8- 3/10 update: Smores engaged in fluid, rowdy play with both male and female dogs today. He is still a play skill novice and may be a little overwhelming from some dogs however he also learns very quickly appropriate behavior responses. 3/13- 3/14 update: Smores may become sexually motivated however he does respond well to corrections and interruptions.
