An ice cream sundae of chocolate, vanilla, and caramel swirl, Treasure is all you could possibly need to make the perfect summer’s day. On one such recent day I spotted 1.5 year-old Treasure first. She is impossible to miss in that coat, with those long, elegant legs and that beautiful, equine face. But something told me to save her for last. That no matter what happened that day, she would make it better or best. I passed by her time and again and each time with another pup. Throughout it all she sat quietly, patiently waiting her turn. Finally, it was time. And immediately I knew I’d made the right call. She walked well next to me with an air of “been there, done that” so unusual for her age. She is completely housebroken and takes her treats so gently, barely grazing my hand each time. And after each one she waits, once again patiently, for more. But on this steamy Sunday this sundae had one thing on her mind: cuddles. As soon I sit she cozies up next to me throwing her legs across my lap. She sniffs my ears just as gently as she took her treats and together we watch the world go by. “Treasure” is both a noun and a verb. The former is a jewel or something of great value. The latter is to “keep carefully” or “hold dear.” You would be right to treasure this treasure. She is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
Treasure came to us as a stray so we don’t have any behavior information other than what has been observed in the shelter environment. She was very interested in interacting with the assessor when entering the behavior with very loose and wiggly body language. She allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining very soft body language. Treasure engaged in play during the tag interaction mouthing the leash lightly but calmed quickly at the end of the item. She proved easy to handle when chewing on the toy item maintaining soft body language as the assessor took it from her. We believe that Treasure can go to an adopter with an average amount of dog experience.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. She indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog mouths leash lightly during play.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
Squeeze 2: 2. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed. Mouths no pressure.
Toy: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you.
6/8: When off leash with other dogs, Treasure is initially cautious and a bit tense. She moves away when approached. As she becomes more comfortable in the yard, Treasure re-approaches, sniffs, then offers bows and muzzle punches to solicit.
6/9: Treasure plays briefly, then runs around anxiously.
6/10 update: Treasure engages in play with both males and females. She will often jump on the backs of other dogs and vocalize during play. She is easily distracted by handlers walking by outside the yard and will bark/whine to get out.
