A volunteer writes: What time is it? Puppy time!!! Champ is a big ol’ brindle bundle of energy who greets me with sweet stand-up hugs then quickly proceeds to get his bounce on; joyfully chasing after a ball, meeting other dogs with a happy tail and snuffling treats from my hand with glee. His oversized paws are always in motion and his nose works double time too, everything is a toy and every corner holds the promise of new discoveries just around the bend–Curious George ain’t got nothing on Champ! He’s almost house trained and loves getting out and about on leash, though he’ll need some lessons on technique as the rope ends up in his mouth more often than not. His former owner tells us he’s friendly with all strangers, kids and dogs he meets but can play a bit roughly at times and that he even loves taking baths. Life is for the living and young Champ simply can’t get enough of it! Are you ready to be teacher, snuggle buddy and playmate to a bouncing baby boy? Then put on your running shoes, head for into our Manhattan Care Center and get set to embark on the adventure of a lifetime!
05/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Champ came into our center as an owner surrender citing moving issues. Owner reports he is very friendly and outgoing with children and strangers, loves to play with other dogs at the park. Behavior with cats is unknown. It is reported Champ doesn’t mind if anyone touches his Food, Toys, Treats. Champ pulled on leash for his relief walk. He was friendly and excitable upon entering SAFER assessment room, displaying high energy and movement. Champ allowed his head to be cupped during Look item, body wiggly. He accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, open mouth. Champ was distracted and unresponsive during Tag game, focused on other stimuli. He pulled his paw back on both Squeeze attempts, mouthed assessor’s hand with no pressure on first attempt, licked assessor’s hand on second attempt. Champ playfully took Toy, but quickly lost interest, instead grabbing the leash. This may be due to environment as owner reports he loves all toys, especially balls and chew toys. When off leash with other dogs, Champ engages in rough play with the female greeter. The Behavior Team feels Champ would do best with an Experienced adopter. He will benefit from puppy obedience classes to learn leash manners as well as body awareness and focus. Champ will require daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of daily walks, runs, exercise play as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his puppy energy and enthusiasm. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back, body wiggly. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1.
