02/22/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I love Star…A little shy, low key, easy going, gentle, well mannered and very affectionate. She is with us together with housemate Missy as their owners separated and can not care for them anymore…Sadly, everybody fell out of luck…Both of them have been beautifully cared for and are family dogs. Nothing is known about Star and Missy and we can only assumed that they were valued and cherished pets…Star is a young gal dressed in a shiny little black dress. She is dainty, elegant and petite. She walks beautifully on the leash, is likely house trained and meets politely other pooches in the street. She is a bit shy in playgroups with other dogs but has not had many chances to meet yet. She is happy to see a face at her door, easy to leash and once in the yard, very gently, very softly, hops on the bench, settles next to me and kisses me…A real treasure of a dog…One can see that she was obviously very well brought up.Star can sit on command, comes at the call of her name and takes treats very gently from my hand. Yes, Star is a star. Come and see for yourself. Ask to meet her, bring your own dog if you have one and hopefully, it will be a match, the beginning of a new friendship, forever this time. Star is at the Manhattan Care Center.
02/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Star came into our center along with another large dog citing a domestic dispute. Upon intake, her tail was tucked but once she came out of the carrier she relaxed and allowed all handling, taking treats gentlry. She was nervous and tense during her initial medical exam. Star was alert and cautious upon entering SAFER assessment room, lip lick. She allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, eyes averted. Star stood still and accepted the touch, ears back, mouth closed, tail wag, body soft. She followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body and head a bit low. Star was a bit hesitant and nervous upon positioning for Squeeze item, jumping up to lick assessor’s face, lip lick. She pulled her paw back on first Squeeze attempt, did not pull back on second. Star showed no interest in Toy. When off leash with other dogs, Star is fearful with a crouched body and tucked tail. She moves away when approached by the male greeter. The Behavior Team feels Star would do best with an Experienced adopter. She may require a slow approach/slow introduction when meeting with her new family so she can relax and know what to expect. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, mouth closed, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body and head low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are back. Toy 1. No interest. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Star is fearful with a crouched body and tucked tail. She moves away when approached by the male greeter.
02/17/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Star has been uncomfortable during off leash socialization. She displays fearful body language while in the yard, and often attempts to increase distance from the other dogs. Star arrived into our care with another female dog, but any details on their in-home behavior are unknown. The behavior department recommends giving Star time to become more comfortable and acclimate into a new home before introducing her to any resident dogs. When off leash with other dogs, Star is fearful with a crouched body and tucked tail. She moves away when approached by the male greeter. 2/24 update: Star avoids interaction from other dogs. 2/25 update: Star is tense and offers a low growl when approached.
