06/20/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/20/17 15:17 Basic Information Verdi is a three year old, large white dog with a brown-brindle spot on his lower back. Verdi was found wandering in and out of a cemetery on Randall and Balcolm Street in the Bronx. Finder stated she found him in heavy rain and didn’t want to leave him out there, so she took him home. She also stated that she would keep him but she can’t because she is leaving town. Founder stated that she cleaned Verdi’s ears with apple vinegar for what she described as an ear infection. Socialization Finder stated that Verdi would flinch when touched but allowed her to clean his ears. Behavior Finder stated that Verdi isn’t bothered when bone or treat is taken away from him For a New Family to Know Finder described Verdi as a friendly, affectionate, shy, mellow and fearful dog with a low activity level. That he would stay in the same room with you when you are at home. Verdi eats only dry food (Pedigree); is house trained; and never had bathroom accidents. Behavior during Intake Upon intake, Verdi had a tensed body. He, upon seeing another dog, began to wag his tail in excitement. He allowed us to collar, photograph, and place her in a kennel.

A volunteer writes: I see Verde as a good student, eager to learn, mostly about the things that make him feel good. So, of course, we have to teach him the right stuff. Verde does not look like a dog who would attend the Westminster Show. He is somewhat run down, although of a good weight and dressed in a nice coat. Verde is happy to see me at his door, equipped with a leash and offering him a treat. We are out the door pretty quickly for a stroll around the block. He seems house trained and does not really mark much his territory. A good walker he is, interested in other dogs but not giving in to trouble if he is barked at. He appears a little tired and likes to rest often, appreciating caresses and gentle talks. Verde loves treats for which he attempts to jump, but will sit quite nicely, too, waiting for more. He is fine with me cleaning his left eye. He is quite a sweet dog, very friendly and wags his tail a lot. Verde appreciates more and more the attention as our time together goes by. I must say that I did not really want to put him back in his kennel. We had such a wonderful time together in the yard. Verde is polite in playgroup with his peer and even imitated a playbow offered by a female friend. Yes, Verde is learning that there are some good things in life. This is just the beginning of, hopefully, a long life of love and fun with a caring new owner or family.
Another volunteer writes: Best Friend Material!! Calm, sweet, affectionate, and with a million dollar smile, Verde is ready to make new friends and be out for a walk. Needing some TLC for his coat and an ear infection which we’re treating, he needs nothing for his sweet personality other than you! Not minding being tethered for pictures, Verde gives gentle kisses and ignores a bird walking over to investigate any leftover crumbs from treats. Easy peasy, Verde is a gentle companion hoping to begin his happily ever after today.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/20/17 During his initial medical exam, Verde allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Verde’s finder described him as having a low level of activity. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
