04/03/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Goose was so sweet in her cage looking at me to see if I would be her friend. When I opened the door she walked to the other side of her double cage, but then she came back to check me out. I squatted down and talked gently to her. She came over and sniffed my ear and then gave me a lick on my cheek. As we walked out she was full of life, happy and easy going. She was a little wary when she saw another pitbull and wanted to avoid any interaction. When we got to the park, I sat on the bench and she jumped up next to me and wagged her tail. She just wanted some cuddling. She really melted my heart. What a sweet loving dog. This amazing sweet, sweet girl deserves a forever home that wants a gentle loving dog like Goose.
A volunteer writes: It may be the season of bunnies and ducklings but the true emblem of spring is a girl named Goose. At just 2 years-old she is more of a gosling, a quiet beauty with a hot-chocolate coat and eyes brimming over with soul. For me, it was love at first sight. But as with spring itself and all things worth waiting for, Goose took some time to warm. No matter. Good things come to those who wait and for a face like that I would wait forever. And roughly one hour later our girl was ready when I passed by. We settle onto a stoop and she snuggles against my side. She sprinkles me with kisses as I pass her treats, and folds her paws underneath her once more. She’s known a home, the feeling of waking up at the foot of a bed, the comfort of a hearty meal, the happy exhaustion of a long walk. But even happy stories end and seasons they do change. And with spring comes Goose’s new chapter and her chance to find happiness once more. As we make our way back I spot something moving high above. A silver bird on a single branch with a chest the color of fire. I stop to marvel at it. And quickly search my pockets for my phone, to commit this memory to screen. But the moment I find it the creature is gone. Flown up and flown off, on to the next adventure. I’m disappointed. But before the feeling can set in Goose is tugging gently at the leash. It’s time to move on. And so we do. Goose is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
04/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/29/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/2/17 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is tense, 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, her tail is down, body tense, panting. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body low and a bit fearful, focused on exit. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Goose initially appeared social when she entered the assessment room. She became a bit tense during some of the handling items but allowed all handling. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 3/31: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Goose appears nervous and walks through the pen with a low body. She curls up and turns her head away from approach. Based on lack of history and observation in the care center, the behavior department recommends allowing Goose time to decompress before immediate introductions to other dogs. Future introductions should be conducted to respectful dogs on a one on one basis. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/29/17 During her initial medical exam, Goose was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Goose so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful (Goose is a bit fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Goose the option to walk away from any social interaction. Goose should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Goose’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Goose would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.)
