Safe - 11-30-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Tribeca. My animal id is #14520. I am a male chocolate dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 25-Nov-2017.
Tribeca is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, Tribeca has been assessed as being suitable for a dog experienced home.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 50.8 lbs

Date of intake:: 11/25/2017
Summary:: Tribexa was social and allowed all handling.;
ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Tribeca so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Behavior Asilomar: TM – Treatable-Manageable
Potential challenges: : Anxiety
Potential challenges comments:: Anxiety: Tribeca appears anxious in the care center, pacing and panting during his assessment and at other times in the care center. We have no history on him in a home, so we do not know if this behavior will be present outside of the care center. If it does occur, we recommend giving him puzzle toys, long walks, and things to do to relieve her anxiety. Positive reinforcement, reward based training only should be used.
