08/15/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Big Tyson was crying when his master left him with us and he is still in mourning. Four walks got him better yesterday and he went back a little bit more easily into his kennel. I left him last night, sleeping soundly into his den. Tyson is quite a handsome lad, well built, well nourished, although dressed in an imperfect coat. Seven years of life have barely greyed his muzzle. He is an energetic dog with naughty eyes and a big smile. Tyson, indeed, loves to be in company and to go on walks.He can sit on command and even gives the right paw..He loves caresses and hugs, making a welcoming happy face. He pulls barely on the leash, does his business without marking and is interested in meeting other dogs. He used to live and play nicely with a female Rotweiler slightly older than him. Tyson will not participate in playgroups with his peers as he would suffer from seizures according to his owner, one of the very reasons for his surrendering. Tyson would also be anxious when left alone(we were not told when the behavior started) and chewed on household items and doors..He lived with many children of all ages, played very nicely with them and was protective of his family. To summarize, statuesque Tyson is looking for a new home to call his own and a new master to serve. He does have some issues, medical and behavioral and needs experienced hands to insure a perfect match and a happy outcome for both new owner and dog. Tyson is at the Manhattan Care Centrer, waiting for his time to shine.
08/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tyson pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Tyson was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He was not interested in toys. Tyson was surrender to us. According to his previous owner Tyson is friendly around strangers. He lived with kid’s ages 6 and 12 but has been around kids of all ages. He is playful and tolerant of all the kids. He plays in an exuberant manner with kids as well as adults. He lived with a large 1 1/2 year old female Rottweiler. He was playful and tolerant of her. They played in an exuberant manner with each other. He has never been around cats or any other kind of animal. Tyson is not bothered if his food is touched while he is eating or his toy is taken away. Tyson did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. 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. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Dog-to-dog: When off leash with other dogs Tyson is polite but not interested in play. He greets nicely and will sniff/wag when initially solicited then explore the yard ignoring further interaction.
08/13/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
8/13: When off leash with other dogs Tyson is polite but not interested in play. He greets nicely and will sniff/wag when initially solicited then explore the yard ignoring further interaction. Previous owner cites ” He lived with a large 1 1/2 year old female Rottweiler.
