A volunteer writes: You’re never fully dressed without a smile and in a sunny ear-to-ear beam and soft, golden coat our Tommy is always impeccably attired! He’s ready to hit the street, the park and the treat bag in that order and though strong and active as all youngsters are, he listens to correction well and isn’t fazed by anything. Whether it’s passing fellow dogs, watching a basketball game or waiting in line behind jostling kids to have his water bowl filled at the fountain, Tommy takes it all in stride and each new encounter makes his happy tail wag that much harder. He’s not very interested in toys but show him a tree or a trash can and he could entertain himself for minutes at a time, sniffing and circling and just enjoying all the bright sights, sounds and smells of a summertime afternoon in the great outdoors. Off leash with his peers, Tommy can be a little shy at first, but he responds to friendly interest in kind and with proper introductions I’m confident he’d be his usual generous self when it comes to living in harmony with a four-legged brother or sister. He seems to be house trained, waits fairly patiently before mouthing treats from my hand and never guards his food or toys and his high energy and easy-going, lovable nature would be the perfect fit for an experienced family of any size, the more playmates the merrier. Look for Tommy at our Manhattan Care Center, he’ll be the one dressed to the nines in a big, welcoming smile!
08/25/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tommy pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, mouthy (light). He was overexcited during handling, jumping up, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Tommy was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He shows minimal interest with toys. Tommy is an active dog who requires a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that he can go to an experienced home. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, mouths the hand, but does not apply pressure. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest. Dog may smell or lick toy, then turn away. Playgroup Notes: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Tommy is initially anxious and distracted. He eventually approaches the female greeter dog and briefly does show interest in interacting once solicited. Tommy arrived into our care as a stray, so there is no is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs, and it is unknown how his/her behavior will translate into a home setting. The behavior team feels that Tommy could potentially be adopted to a home with another dog pending a successful pre adoption interaction and slow introductions.
