A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Keys is a middle-aged marvel! Years of experience as a pet have honed her naturally friendly personality into a gentle blend of just-right energy, affection and curiosity and my date with her was an absolute delight. She’s an easy girl to love and be loved by, leaning heavily into my legs for a side rub and literally standing on my lap for petting before kissing up a storm as we huddle in for a selfie. Aside from her snuggle skills, she’s a good leash walker, a fun tug-o-war partner who never guards her things and a polite little lady who’ll sit on command to wait for treats and take them softly too. Keys is practically perfect in every way but one: she doesn’t seem to enjoy the company of other dogs. She makes her preference clear through the fence and on leash so it’s easy to identify situations that make her uncomfortable and with her smaller size and people-friendly nature we had no trouble keeping things civil via a short rope and some reassuring words and petting. Keys is a sweet girl with a dash of moxie to keep things fun and having aced her behavior assessment she’s ready to leave for home as soon as you are. Visit our Manhattan Care Center to find the Keys to your heart today!
Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment: 10-Jul-2018
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. Allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog might jump on Assessor once play begins.
Paw squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back.
Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His/her body is between you and the toy, and is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness.
Summary: Keys approached the assessor with a soft body. She was social throughout the assessment, allowed all handling, and displayed no concerning behaviors.
Date of intake: 9-Jul-2018
Summary: Loose body, solicited attention
Date of initial: 9-Jul-2018
Summary: Outgoing, barking
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Keys so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.
