A volunteer writes: There’s mushy…and then there’s Wile Coyote! Modern psychology acknowledges multiple types of intelligence and this big boy is a super genius in the domain of cuddling. His signature move is putting all the weight of his head on sitting people’s laps, making the sweetest eye contact, and inevitably getting all the pets or treats his little heart desires (he is completely irresistible!). He drapes across my lap when invited, gently props his paws up for hugs, and makes the most charming little contented grunty noises. He isn’t just affectionate, but Wile seems to be very well-mannered too! He is easy on leash, sits for treats (he takes them nicely), and seems housebroken. He loves to play with toys and has done very well with other dogs he’s met in our playgroups. He is really a special guy and has a way of treating everyone he meets like they are the best person ever. He’s going to make someone SUPER happy…please come meet him at Brooklyn ACC and see if that might be you!

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Wile Coyote was used as a social greeter dog today with both female and male dogs due to his calm social disposition. He greeted each dog with a neutral posture and briefly engaged in a short bout of bouncy play with a young male dog. During his last session of same-sex introductions he met an intact male who aggressed upon meeting him. Wile Coyote did not appear to escalate during the altercation and was calm and easy to handle immediately following the incident.
During his medical examination, Wile Coyote was calm but a bit fearful but did allow all handling.
Wile Coyote displays a medium activity level in the care center.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
***All Staff Walks***
BITE: During same-sex introductions, Wile Coyote met an intact male who aggressed upon meeting him. An altercation occurred, leaving puncture wounds on both dogs.
INTERACTION: Wile Coyote was lying on his bed, tail wagging when I approached him. He began to low growl and stiffens his body the longer I stood there, but immediately stopped when I offered him a treat. I placed my rope on him and walked him towards the play pens. Outside, Wile Coyote approached my coworker and I, placing his head on our legs. He enjoyed the attention we were giving him, and mostly solicited attention when we stopped. After his session was over, Wile Coyote walked back to his kennel without an issue. Wile Coyote is social and did not display any behavior concerns, so I feel comfortable making him ‘ All Staff Walks’.
03/07/17: Wile Coyote was sitting in his kennel when I approached him. He stood up on the kennel door and began to wag his tail. I easily roped him, but he was hesitant to jump down out of his kennel. On the way to the pens, he stopped by everyone he saw in the hallways and accepted all petting. In the pens, I attached the drag leash and Wile Coyote walked around a bit and relieved himself. I sat on the play slide and called his name and he came running over to me. For the remainder of the time, he put his head on my knee and solicited attention and I gave him head and body rubs. When we went back inside he accepted pets from coworkers again before I put him back into the kennel.
Wile Coyote was brought in as a stray so his behavior around other dogs is unknown.
03/05/17: When off leash with other dogs, Wile Coyote greets the female helper with a soft, neutral body. He initially is sexually motivated but does not attempt to mount then he wanders the yard, exploring.
