03/21/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Pretty is the word that comes to people’s lips when they see Tris. Indeed, she is lovely and girly in her shiny oreo dress. Her bright amber eyes bring depth and life to her face. Tris is rather quiet in her kennel. She accepts my leash, though, and off we go for a stroll around the block. She is a nice and slow walker. She does not seem to mind other dogs met except for a very large male that made her quite uncomfortable. I know that she is rather timid. At some point, a staff told me a joke and we both started laughing. This made Tris loosen up and wag her tail. Even her look was more relaxed. By our second walk, Tris was wagging her tail in her kennel. She was already more comfortable with me…and making steps in the right direction. Being heartworm positive (a treatable condition), Tris will need not only your love but the care of a Veterinarian. She is so worth your consideration so come to the Manhattan Care Center and meet her soon in person.
Another volunteer writes: I was told that Tris might not want to come out for a walk, as she’s shy and a bit anxious, but I’m happy to say that Tris and I made friends right away. She’s a gorgeous little girl with a cute underbite, a row of perfect looking teeth, and perhaps one little snaggle tooth that catches her upper lip in the cutest way. She’s a beauty, and yes, still a bit shy, but came close for petting, and lay her head on my lap. Tris is likely housetrained, is good on leash and allowed a coat against the cold air. She enjoys treats, taking them gently, and the more time we spent together the more relaxed she became. Once back inside, when I took her coat off she bounced and play-bowed and wagged her tail; her inner self took over for a while, and I could see the loving, playful and sweet dog she really is. She deserves to find that happiness again, that joy, that playful abandon. Tris’s beautiful amber eyes look into mine with tenderness and hope.
03/19/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/17/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/19/17 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Dog is very tense. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body tense, mouth closed Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends. Dog is crouching. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Tris was fearful throughout her assessment, trembling and moving away from the assessor. She allowed all handling. PLAYGROUP: Due to heartorm (+) status, Tris has not been introduced to other dogs in the care center at this time. Future introductions to other dogs should be conducted slowly. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/17/17 During her initial medical exam, Tris was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Tris so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to the behavior seen in the care center, we feel that Tris may be intimidated by young children. She needs a slow approach and time to warm up. She should never be forced to interact with new people, and should be allowed to greet and initiate an interaction at her own pace. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful (Tris is fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Tris the option to walk away from any social interaction. Tris should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Tris’ choice to approach a new person or thing. Tris would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.)
