A volunteer writes: Shhhh don’t tell Wooster he is considered a “senior”, he hasn’t gotten the memo. Wooster runs and plays like a puppy. Wooster’s favorite game is keep away with any toy he can get!!! Wooster loves treats. If you’re interested in giving Wooster his forever home please come to the Staten Island Care Center and meet him. He’s ready and waiting.

Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog.
Summary: Wooster was fairly distracted throughout his assessment though displayed no behavior concerns.
During his initial medical exam, Wooster allowed all handling.
We have no history on Wooster so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home. In the care center Wooster has displayed a medium level of activity.
PLAYGROUP: When interacting on leash with a social female, Wooster is mostly focused on handlers. Wooster becomes overly stimulated, offers play bows combined with hard jumps, body remains soft.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
When interacting on leash with a social female, Wooster is mostly focused on handlers. Wooster becomes overly stimulated, offers play bows combined with hard jumps, body remains soft.
Wooster is easy in and out of his kennel. He often explores the yard and only solicits handlers when treats are offered. He is a bit aloof and not overly connected with handlers. He may grab treats quickly When doing a dog to dog interaction for his safer, Wooster appeared to not “see” the other dog. I have noticed this in the yard (but wasnt sure). He wouldnt notice things until they are up close to his face and he often stares blankly.
