11/16/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: She’s a little bit shy, but a lotta bit sweet! When I first approached Uniqlo’s kennel, I thought she was a puppy! She had curled herself into a tight little ball on her bed, and given she’s small as it is, her shrunken position made her look even tinier! At only about 35 pounds, she could stand to gain some weight, but even when she does, she will remain petite-a pocket pittie is how we refer to dogs like her. Though her tail was tucked, and she seemed nervous at times, with me, she was nothing but endearing. On a cold and windy day, she was eager to get close to me, maybe it was purely for warmth, but I can’t help but think she was enjoying a cuddle too! She loves food and is willing to try her best to do what you ask to receive some. Uniqlo is looking for someone who will have the patience to help her come out of her shell a bit more, but a little bit of effort goes a long way with her. Ask to meet her today!
Another volunteer writes: Uniqlo is the SWEETEST little scaredy cat around! She is itty bitty, incredibly cute, and almost looks like she has bags under her eyes from all the worrying she does! She does startle easily and needs a slow approach, but Uniqlo absolutely shows a strong desire to connect with and trust people. She warms up more and more each time I take her out, and she’s started to show me glimpses of her playful side. She has always shown me her cuddly side and is so, so sweet! Whenever I call her over, she quickly makes her way to me (albeit nearly army crawling), sits in a little ball at my feet, quickly wags her tucked tail, and then literally hugs my legs! She makes soft eye contact, licks my hands, and always stays close. She has walked perfectly on leash on all of our walks, seems to have housetraining, and is definitely not shy about loving treats. Maybe you can be the one to bring her out of her little shell and make her feel safe forever…please come see her at Brooklyn ACC!
11/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Unknown Intact, Seized SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/08/16 Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He 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, 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: 4. Dog panics with vocalization combined with tail tuck, yelping and repeatedly trying to exit. Flank: 1/2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Toy: 1. No interest Summary: Upon entering the assessment room, Uniqlo is fearful though tries to stay close to the handler and readily accepts touch. Uniqlo appears to startle easily and therefore became highly uncomfortable during the tag portion of the assessment, requiring several minutes to recover. Though displayed some human social behavior, because of the fearful behavior observed in shelter, we recommend Uniqlo be placed with an experienced adopter who can provide an adult only home. A period of decompression is advised as well as force-free, reward based training. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Uniqlo is nervous as she greets male and female dogs. In a group of calm dogs she mostly avoids any further interaction and seeks the handler’s attention. The Behavior Department believes that Uniqlo would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home, however a dog-dog interaction can be conducted with a potential adopter’s dog to assess Uniqlo’s comfort level. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/05/16 During her initial medical examination, Uniqlo appeared fearful though tolerated all handling without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience _X_No children (under 13) _X_Recommend no dog parks Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Uniqlo has been observed to display fearful behavior during her stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and may shy away from direct-touch. Uniqlo easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of this environment.)

Uniqlo was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Uniqlo is nervous as she greets male and female dogs.

The Behavior Department believes that Uniqlo would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home, however a dog-dog interaction can be conducted with a potential adopter’s dog to assess Uniqlo’s comfort level. 11/5: Uniqlo is nervous as she greets a novel male dog with a low body. Uniqlo stands taller as the other dog greets her and displays soft body language. As the session continues, she continues to become more relaxed and social. 11/7: Uniqlo briefly greeted the other female and males in a group of calm dogs however she mostly avoids any further interaction and seeks the handler’s attention. 11/10: Uniqlo is still nervous but is more relaxed and social today as she interacts with calm male and female dogs. 11/11-11/14: Uniqlo continues to relax as she socializes with male and female dogs.
