03/09/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I see occasionally kids, even as old as 4, coming to my pediatrician’s office and being frantic or frozen when they see my white coat and my stethoscope. Once out the door, I watch the same children playing and running happily with their peers in the waiting room. Teddy is just like a little boy in the hospital, scared of the unknown, trying to make himself small and refusing to move. We all know that he could not have gone four years of his life behaving like this. We have to try to get him out of his shell. Teddy, of course, has a long way to go, and without any doubt, adopting or fostering him would be most likely his salvation. But by the end of the day, I was pleased to see that he had already made some progress, roaming in a large pen and enjoying the fresh air. I liked that he came on his own onto my lap to seek comfort, squeezed himself tight against me, even kissed me, demonstrating that he knows to find solace in us humans. Teddy came with an older and wiser companion, Cream Cheese, who seems to be related to him. They both look healthy, well dressed and nourished, and seem to have been well cared for by their prior owners. Before leaving the care center last night, I found Teddy with a…Teddy Bear under his head (a staff’s thoughtful gesture). He was so cute and endearing to look at. Teddy needs you to lean on. As we do not know much about him or his friend, he will need experienced and caring hands to lift away his fears and discover the real Teddy who can be found waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center.
03/08/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/5/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/8/17 Summary: Teddy appears very fearful in the care center. When taken out of his kennel, he will take a few steps and then lay down and refuse to stand back up. He has had to be carried outside and back inside. When laying down, he has his tail tucked underneath him and his entire body is trembling. Though Teddy has shown no signs of aggression, out of concern for his stress levels, we feel Teddy is not a good candidate for a handling assessment at this time. PLAYGROUP: The behavior department recommends allowing Teddy time to decompress in a new environment before immediate introductions to other dogs. Future introductions to respectful dogs should be conducted slowly, and on a one on one basis. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/5/17 During his initial medical exam, Teddy was tense, lunging, and resisted handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Teddy so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Teddy has not acclimated well to the kennel environment. He appears terrified and will walk very little, laying down trembling with his tail tucked under him; we have been unable to fully assess Teddy due to this behavior. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Teddy has displayed extreme fear in the care center, plastering himself to the floor with tail tucked and body trembling when taken out of his cage. He needs a very slow approach and the ability to warm up to new people and new environments at his own pace. Teddy should never be forced to submit to petting or handling. Only force-free, reward based training should be used with Teddy as more aversive techniques are likely to increase fear.
03/08/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
The behavior department recommends allowing Teddy time to decompress in a new environment before immediate introductions to other dogs. Future introductions to respectful dogs should be conducted slowly, and on a one on one basis. 3/8: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Teddy is fearful while in the yard and remains low to the ground. When the female greeter dog approaches, Teddy stands up briefly to sniff her from behind. He retreats to a corner and remains crouched in the same area of the yard. When a male dog from the same household (A1105443 Cream Cheese) is brought into the yard, Teddy becomes tense and turns away.
