Are you looking for a friend to sit on the couch with you and Netflix entire series of shows in one weekend? Do you need someone in your life that won’t judge you if you finish off that bag of Lay’s or eat an entire box of Sour Patch Kids by yourself?Well Trust is your girl then. As long as you share your snacks, that is. In fact you can trust her with your deepest, darkest secrets! (See what I did there?) She’s a true blue friend, a ride or die kind of girl, and your life just isn’t complete with out her, trust me, I know. Trust is near perfection. She’s extremely housetrained, knows her commands including give paw (just don’t forget her cookie reward!) and she walks nicely on the leash. While she may be more couch potato than athlete, when I ask her, “Wanna go for a WALK!?” In my high pitched voice (you know the one!) she seems to prance like a pony in response. Just because she’s a bit thick in the middle doesn’t mean she’s not eager to explore the neighborhood with you. Trust loves pretty much everyone as far as two legged friends go, but she prefers bigger dogs over smaller ones. Can you blame her for throwing her weight around a bit with the little guys? Trust really has all the qualities you’ve been looking for in your new BFF. The only thing she’s missing… is YOU!
A volunteer writes: Slightly tubby Trust may not look fast, but this lady has got a spring in her step! Trust seems to be house trained, knows how to sit very nicely, and walks easily on the leash. She will always run to catch up with you if you get ahead, seems curious about other dogs, and doesn’t have much interest in chasing balls. When I took her to the pen to play today, she pretty much ignored the ball and immediately found a cool, shady spot to lay down. A girl after my own heart! When she wasn’t resting, Trust followed me around the pen– I can tell she’s going to be a wonderful, loyal companion to her future adopter. Please come and meet sweet Trust at Brooklyn ACC today.

Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Toy: 1. No interest
Summary: Trust was soft and social throughout, she displayed no concerns.
According to Trust’s previous owner, Trust lunges at smaller dogs during walks. During Trust’s previous stay at the Care Center, Trust displayed concerning behavior towards the male greeter-lunging and snapping unprovoked. She currently interacted with a novel male dog with a soft body. She explored her surrounding most of her session. The Behavior Department believes that Trust would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home. Any resident dogs should be polite and respectful. All introductions should be conducted slowly and be under supervision.
Trust greets the helper dog with a soft body and exchanges mutual sniffs. She does not interact any further other than when she walked up next to the helper dog. They stood together for 20-30 seconds looking in similar directions and then, what appeared to the handlers to be unprovoked, Trust turned barked and lunged two or three times at the helper dog. He did not react to her and the dogs were separated.
September – October 2017: Trust greets calm male and female dogs with a soft body. She explores the pens, mostly keeping to herself.
10/18: Today, Trust inappropriately corrects an older male dog when he sniffs her genitals. She was immediately separated.
INTAKE BEHAVIOR 09/18/2017
Upon intake, Trust was calm and allowed all handling.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 09/18/2017
During her initial medical examination, Trust was friendly and allowed all handling.
Trust is reported to have a high energy level, in the care center she displays a medium activity level. We recommend daily mental and physical stimulation as an outlet to direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience)
_X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: At the care center Trust has been observed to react to other dogs on leash; barking and growling. Trust may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to look at you rather than other dogs, novel stimuli that may startle her. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior.
