08/28/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/28/16 16:17 Zoltar A1087665 is a young male perhaps PBGV mix who was found wandering the basement garbage area of the finder’s residence in the Bronx three weeks ago. They stated they kept an eye on him while they waited to see if anyone responded to their flyers but no one contacted them and they aren’t able/willing to keep him. They also stated they didn’t take in Zoltar into their home. During intake Zoltar is very serious. He allows handling but at a slow pace. Zoltar needs time to adjust and become your friend. He allowed to be pet, scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. When I attempted to pick him up to place him into a top kennel Zoltar whipped his body to face me and didn’t let me pick him up. I then asked Zoltar to hop into a bottom kennel which he did. I walked away but had to turn back to retrieve something and once he saw me he began wagging his tail with a “smile” on his face.

08/31/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zoltar walks calmly on leash. He was stiff and did not show social behavior. Zoltar was uncomfortable with handling; he stands tall, and tries to look large. He wrinkles his muzzle and tries to bite the assessor when he tries to collar him. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Zoltar was not interested in toys. According to staff member during intake “Zoltar was very serious. He allows handling but at a slow pace. Zoltar needs time to adjust and become your friend. He allowed being pet, scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. When I attempted to pick him up to place him into a top kennel Zoltar whipped his body to face me and didn’t let me pick him up. I then asked Zoltar to hop into a bottom kennel which he did”. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Toy 1: No interest.
