02/05/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I saw her coming out of the Animal Care Center van, all dressed in black, as regal as a faraway ebony princess. I knew I wanted to spend some time with her. What a beauty! She was on my mind for hours until I got back to her. Sula was lying peacefully on a towel. I called and she got up slowly. I could see some hesitation on her face. Me, really, not somebody else? You, the one and only… yes. Sula is really a very pretty gal, so feminine, Labbish with lovely ears framing her solemn face, and skinny. A mother she has been probably a number of times. Sula is leashed easily and off we go to the yard. A handsome dark male, Sega, is met. He likes Sula as much as I do. The feeling is mutual but… no, no, no, we do not want puppies anymore. Sula hesitates to go out… it was raining. She was found attached to a pole today and had her share of fighting the elements. Sula is a good girl, though and I know she trusts me. We take a quick relief walk through the yard and back inside her den for cuddling time. I do not think she knows what it is but she is learning fast. Her tail is already wagging a lot. I went back to see Sula tonight. She was so elegant, resting on a midnight blue blanket. I know she recognized me and came right way to her door. A treat, a short walk, she was happy and felt safe back in her kennel. Sula so needs to rest, eat and gain back much needed strength. The safety of a home and the love of a forever human is the endpoint to her stay with us, a new “leash on life” with real owners who will treat her like royalty. Lovely Sula is at the Manhattan Care Center. Together, we are dreaming of a brighter future.

02/04/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Sula is a bit nervous in her environment, but eventually approaches to greet with a low wag. She entered the care center as a stray so any in-home behaviors with other dogs are unknown. The behavior department recommends a pre-adoption interaction for Sula and a resident dog as well as allowing her time to acclimate to her new environment before any introductions are done.
