05/01/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I first encountered Zoya when she was being wheeled down the hallway on a flatbed cart. Paralyzed with fear, she wouldn’t walk. Sadly the paralysis hasn’t subsided much. It’s pretty impossible not to feel for her. She allows staff members to pick her up and carry her when her cage needs to be cleaned. She arrived as a stray via NYPD with another dog. With a bit of encouragement from her much more outgoing buddy she came out of her cage and walked inside of the room she is being housed in, but froze again when she reached the hallway. She is a little dirty, but otherwise looks well fed and is really beautiful. She makes adorable inquisitive faces and cocks her head when she hears curious noises originating from the scary world beyond her cage. If I sit with her for a long time she’ll eventually gently take treats from my hand, lick them and make fleeting soft eye contact, but if I try to initiate more contact or encourage her to come out she tries to hide in places she doesn’t fit. This is not the place for her, but I hope she can find somewhere that is! Zoya is at Brooklyn ACC hoping someone will take a chance on her.
04/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
In the kennel Zoya was on her bed when we walked in but immediately tried to hide in the corner. We were able to open the kennel door and touch her back legs but she tried even harder to get away. Head was fully down, tail tucked, shaking especially when we tried to touch her. We succeeded in getting the rope around her neck but could not get her out of the kennel. We attempted to give her treats but she did not respond, so we sat on the floor by her head and talked softly to her. She lifted her head at several points but returned to her fearful posture whenever we showed any signs of paying attention to her. Face was near the bars and allowed us to touch her face with no resistance. Due to the level of stress displayed the assessor decided Zoya was not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time. We recommend Zoya go to a New Hope partner that can provide her with positive experiences and behavior modification. 5/1 update: Zoya continues to be shut down and extremely fearful in her kennel. She did take the vienna sausages I offered her, both approaching me to pick them up off the floor and taking them from my hand so this is a very large improvement from two days ago. It was easy to leash her but she leaned against the back wall. Once leashed she did turn towards me as I tugged lightly but unfortunately I was unable to get her to walk out of the kennel on her own.
04/28/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Zoya is extremely fearful and has been balking and pancaking while in the shelter. The Enrichment Team did not attempt to take her to play group today due to this behavior. We will give her another chance tomorrow and add her to our socialization list.
