11/01/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Zebracake is a good looking gent, reasonably well groomed and dressed in a lush dark chocolate and black coat. His amber eyes light up his face. His muzzle is very slightly grey, and his mouth opens often into a lovely smile. ZC is a little shy in his kennel, but gets leashed fairly rapidly. He is a very good walker, marks a little his territory, and eyes the pigeons as well as the squirrels in the park. Well, he is just doing his job, as he is part of the herding group of dogs. ZC does not mind being stared at by me and the camera. He will sit on command, and is not at all interested in my treats that I thought were quite tasty. He seems to like my caresses all over his body. He is a really very gentle and well-mannered pooch. As we were early visitors at a nearby park, we did not meet many dogs, and those we encountered did not elicit much attention from Zebracake. Zebracake is an easy going character, friendly, a little shy–at least inside our walls–and a lovely Collie who is sure to attract the connoisseur of the breed. Come and meet Zebracake at the Manhattan Care Center and take him home as your new best friend.
11/01/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/01/16 Toy 1. No interest. Summary: Zebra Cake stands tall and makes direct eye contact before the assessment. He was growling while exposing his front teeth. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety concens as well as considering Zebra Cake’s overall stress level. PLAYGROUP: Zebra Cake has shown brief interest in interacting with other dogs. He does not show interest in solicting or engaging in play and remains calm during interaction. Based on observation made in our care, the behavior department recommends slow introductions between Zebra Cake and any calm resident dogs in a future home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/29/16 During his initial medical examination, Zebra Cake appeared tense and uncomfortable with handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Only Hope _X_No children (under 13)(See potential challenges) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Zebra Cake may benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Zebra Cake has displayed fearful/defensive behavior during his stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling. It is recommended that Zebra Cake be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating him to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Zebra Cake to new and unfamiliar situations.)
