07/26/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
Tiny is a 5.5 year old APBT / Lab mix. Her family got her from previous owners when she was 3 months old and surrendered her because they lost their home. Tiny has not really spent time around strangers. She lived with another medium-sized female dog and 3 cats and was relaxed, playful, tolerant, and affectionate with the other pets. She played exuberantly with them and they slept together. She’s never bit anyone. Tiny doesn’t mind storms. She doesn’t mind when someone takes her food/treat/toy, moves her off furniture, holds/restrains her, or wakes her up. She enjoys being bathed and brushed. She barks when someone knocks at the door. Tiny‘s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and low-medium energy. She follows her owner everywhere. He has health issues and she provides him with constant company and comfort. She plays chase and wrestles with her owner. She plays with squeaky toys. Tiny enjoys smelling flowers, playing in the snow, being dressed up in children’s clothes, and taking cold showers in the summer. She lived inside and slept on a dog bed. She ate dry and wet dog foods (Pedigree, Beneful, Alpo, Gravy Train, etc.) and got chicken as a treat. She was walked late during the night. She potties outside on her walks and on newspaper while inside when she isn’t walked. She is well-behaved while home alone. She sits and lies down while asked. She went for slow walks and doesn’t pull on her leash. Tinyapproached me, sniffed my hand, and allowed me to pet her head. She lied down in front of her owner, quiet with her head down. She took treats gently from me. She licked her lip once while I collared her and had whale eye briefly while I scanned her (-). She didn’t become tense while I pet her head or sides or while I switched her leashes. After her owners left, she lied at the baby gate with her head down, nearly motionless, watching the door. She allowed me to pet her head and sides. When I tried to pull the leash from under her, she looked back at me and growled. She allowed me to put a new leash on her and walked with me on that leash. I brought her to the backdrop and she lied down and put her head down. She returned to the baby gate. I entered the room with another staff member and we looked at her. She growled at us. She became quiet and ignored me while I entered and worked at the computer. She whined a few times. Then, she lied down behind me with her head down and was quiet.

A volunteer writes: Tiny is “frozen” here at the care center. Yes, frozen in the the burning heat of the summer…Give her a home, give her back her owner or a new family and Tiny will become the sun herself. Indeed, look at what her former master writes about her. She seems to be a dream companion…Comforting him when he needed warmth, playing with toys, wrestling with him, enjoying being dressed in children’s clothes( ), loving baths and grooming…No wonder that she looks so beautiful and so well cared for…She must have been such a jewel…Sadly, Tiny‘s owner lost his home and had to give her away…We are told that Tiny lived happily with another female and 3 cats…They played and even slept together. You would never guess that Tiny was such a wonderful pet …Although she lays at her door, Tiny looks mighty scared. I give her a treat that she takes gently and leash her without issue. No growl or show of teeth. She walks at a good pace, tail way between her legs and does quickly her business. As we reach the park, Tiny relaxes a little . It is so crowded in there..bikes, people, kids, other dogs…Tiny‘s face becomes less and less gloomy. Even her tail decides to show itself…I am so glad.. I know we did not win a battle but we took some steps in the right direction and Tiny‘s little heart got a bit lighter even for a moment..Tiny is a beautiful girl, five years of age who needs …a home, a family and some socialization too as she was not much exposed to the outside world by her former master. We so hope that this gorgeous ebony girl will have her dreams answered…. Tiny is at the Manhattan Care Center.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tiny was difficult to remove from her kennel showing teeth, low growling. She is fearful of the shelter environment and walks with a low and fearful body. Tiny is fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler. She doesn’t allow the behavior team to collar her. Tiny had a low body, hackles raised, ears back, whale eyes and lips curled her mouth slightly. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Tiny was not interested in toys. She does not approach other dog, attempts to exit. Tiny was surrender to us. According to her previous owner she may growl at strangers. Admission staff member stated that she growled when new people entered the room but allowed her to leash tiny. She walked slowly and crouched, shaking. She was tense and pulled away from her but allowed the staff member to put a muzzle on her. She was stiff while she was held for vaccines. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog. Turns body to side in relation to other dog, or exits. Helper: A1082937
