5/26/16 19:58 Basic information: Bronx is a roughly 6 yr. old Chihuahua mix. The Owner got him from a family member as a gift; she has owned Bronx for over 5 yrs. The owner surrendered Bronx because the owner moved to an apartment the does not except dogs. Bronx has not been taken to a vet in over 3 years. Socialization: Around strangers Bronx is very fearful and will growl and bark at strangers. Bronx has lived with two children, he is relaxed and playful around children and adults he knows. He does not like other dogs and will often growl and bark at them. Bronx has never bitten anyone. Behavior: The owner stats that Bronx is not bothered when some moves his food or treats while he is eating, when someone takes his toys away or when someone disturbs him while sleeping. Bronx likes to be brushed and given bathes but does not like to have his nails trimmed. When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches a family member or his home he growls and barks at them until they leave. The owner says that Bronx is scared of loud noises such as storms or fireworks and will often hide from the noise. For a new family to know: The owner describes Bronx as friendly and playful with a high activity level. His favorite activity is to play fetch with his owner.

06/04/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: No prizes for guessing where sweet little Bronx hails from! He’s a born and bred New Yorker and like so many of us his heritage is a wonderful mix of cultures (Chihuahua and Pekingese) and his apparent aloofness on the street is all for show, once he’s snuggled on your lap you’ll soon see the loving, loyal heart behind the hustle. Bronx can be a little fearful in new situations but he’s quick to warm up, has lived in playful harmony with children in the past and is happy to be leashed, carried in my arms or given a good back massage. While he’s currently suffering from a small, possibly contagious, growth on his mouth and isn’t allowed in playgroup, on leash Bronx passes other dogs with ease and out in the yard his tiny tail wags a mile a minute to see them approaching our pen. Apartment-sized and absolutely adorable, Bronx would be a great addition to a quiet, small dog-savvy home and he’d be perfectly happy in any of the 5 boroughs or beyond. I heart Bronx and you will too, ask to meet him today!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bronx came to us as an owner surrender due to the owner’s current living situation. According to the owner Bronx lived with two children and was relaxed and playful around them. The owner reported that Bronx is very fearful and will growl and bark at strangers as well as other dogs. He was said to not be bothered if someone touches his food, toys or treats. Bronx had very fearful and nervous body language when entering the behavior room. He would attempt to approach the assessor with nervous and slightly trembling body language, but will then turn and increase distance from the assessor. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items without displaying any signs of aggression. However, Bronx did maintain tense and stiff body language throughout most of the assessment. He only displayed minimal interest in the toy item on this portion of the assessment. When on an on-leash dog interaction Bronx did not approach the helper dog. Due to the owner’s comments and Bronx’s fearful nature we recommend he go to a home with an experienced adopter and no children at this time. Look: 2. Dog holds gaze. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2.
