07/05/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Hold onto your hearts, here comes Chia! Full of life and love and ready to go go go, Chia is the baby-faced ambassador of her little family (with sisters Susu and Tyme) and she’s always eager to meet other pups of any size, tail frantically wagging in greeting and tongue out and ready for kisses from the moment she sees them. All three girls were shy on arrival but it didn’t take Chia, AKA The Brindle Dynamo, long to settle into her new surroundings and she’s usually glued to the front, not the back, of her kennel as she waits for her next chance to go outside and have fun. Already a playgroup star, Chia’s looking to expand her horizons beyond the backyard of the Care Center and she’d love to bring your family along for the ride! She appears to be house trained but will need some guidance as to leash walking, come, sit and all the other commands a good doggie ambassador should have under their belt so be sure to pack the fancy treats because this downtown girl has surprisingly high-end snack standards! Full of potential and looking forward to retiring from her ‘job’ producing puppies and moving on to a lifelong career as a beloved pet, Chia would be a great fit for any experienced home, especially one where she’ll have a four-legged sibling or two to keep her company. The Brindle Dynamo can’t wait to meet you and she’s available for interviews (and snuggles) at our Manhattan Care Center any day of the week, come on in and ask for Chia today!
07/02/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chia pulls a bit on leash. She was shy but friendly during the assessment – low body, but trying to stay close. Chia was shy during handling with a fearful body language. She followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. Chia was not interested in toys. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter. Chia is fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Chia is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, shy body language , mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful but unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends. Dog is likely crouching, may have long lip or lip lick. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy 1. No interest. Playgroup Notes: When off leash with another female dog Chia is uncomfortable. She walks low to the ground and will only briefly sniff the helper dog when she is walking away.
07/01/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Chia has engages in bouts of soft play with other dogs. She arrived into our care with two female dogs, however no background in their in-home interactions were provided. Chia may take time to become comfortable with unfamiliar dogs before engaging in play. The behavior department feels that Chia could be placed with another social, respectful dog. Slow introducions at Chia’s pace are encouraged to allow her to become comfortable. 7/1: When off leash with another female dog Chia is uncomfortable. She walks low to the ground and will only briefly sniff the helper dog when she is walking away. 7/2 update: Chia is much more relaxed today when greeting another female. She offers “butt bumps” and toe taps to solicit play but does not fully engage. 7/3: Chia displays a soft body and wagging tail. She repeatedly approaches to greet a calm female dog. 7/5 update: Chia is playful and bouncy in a pen with males and females. 7/6: Chia roams the yard and offers polite greeting to other dogs. 7/7: Chia is polite when greeting. She avoids when approached by sexually motivated male dogs. 7/8 update: Chia engages in soft play but mostly spends her time exploring the yard. 7/9 update: Chia continues to exhibit these behaviors when off leash with other dogs.
