A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: This pup is grappling with a skin issue at the moment, but it will take more than that to dampen Majesty’s lust for life. He bounds out for his walkies, all waggy and grinning, glad to be in company. The sight of him navigating the sidewalk, torn between wanting to explore the world and to deal with his itches, is beyond endearing. He’ll make sweet eye contact and, though currently sensitive to touch, almost groans with pleasure when you find that spot under his chin where it doesn’t hurt him if you scratch it. He also sits for treats and seems housebroken. A little TLC, and Majesty will be as gorgeous on the outside as he already is on the inside. Come meet him in Brooklyn today!

Summary: Majesty was social and friendly towards the assessor. He allowed handling, and was vocal throughout the assessment (barking), but remained soft.
Majesty is social with both male and female dogs, and engages in gentle play. He tolerates all body contact and most behaviors. According to Majestyâ€™s finder, Majesty did not interact with other dogs but appeared to be curious of their dogs and would bark at them wanting their attention. The Behavior Department recommends that Majesty be placed in a home with resident dogs that match his play style.

12/21-23: Majesty solicits gentle play with persistent paw slaps in a group of male and female dogs. When the energy exceeds his comfort level, he sits in corner.
12/27-28: Due to Majesty sociability, Majesty is utilized as a greeter. He displays a loose wiggly body language when greeting novel female dogs. He can be persistent with his paw slaps, but responds well to corrections.
Date of intake: 18-Dec-2017
Summary: Majesty was very energetic and sweet.
Date of initial: 18-Dec-2017
Summary: Majesty wags tail, seeks attention
We have no history on Majesty so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment.
Majesty is a young, enthusiastic, social dog, and will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Potential challenges comments:
Majesty is reported to have frequent accidents in the house, and appears not to have been housetrained in the past. He will need guidance and consistency to learn to eliminate outside. We recommend crate training (the crate must be made positive and never used as a punishment), frequent walks, rewards for eliminating outside (treats, toys, games), consistent feeding schedule, and careful monitoring when inside. Accidents should never be punished as it can damage the human-dog relationship and is likely to make the problem worse.
