REMY LEBEAU – 20408
Gone - 2-21-2018 Brooklyn
Hello, my name is Remy Lebeau. My animal id is #20408. I am a male brown brindle dog at the Brooklyn Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 7 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 10-Feb-2018.
Remy Lebeau 20408 is at risk for behavior concerns (Experience determination). He has been fearful of strangers and novelty in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior. He accepts attention and will become affectionate with handlers, but will show discomfort when he’s had enough attention or the situation becomes overwhelming. He also has been diagnosed with Canine Upper Respiratory Disease Complex and will likely require home rest and a series of antibiotics for up to 14 days. This is a contagious illness to other dogs.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 38.375 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 3. Yellow
Date of intake:: 2/10/2018
Spay/Neuter status:: No
Means of surrender (length of time in previous home):: Stray
Date of assessment:: 2/13/2018
Look:: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, ears are back, tail is down, relaxed body posture. Dog 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:: 3. Dog is soft in body and eye, and moves legs/body so that the Assessor is unable to hold the paw.
Flank squeeze 1:: 1. Dog does not respond at all.
Flank squeeze 2:: 1. Dog does not respond at all.
Toy:: 1. No interest.
Summary:: Remy was fairly distracted throughout the assessment, at times focused on the door. He was a bit timid with up close handling but did not escalate beyond avoidant behaviors.
Date of intake:: 2/10/2018
Summary:: During intake, Remy was timid-tail tucked and flinched when approached with scanner.
Date of initial:: 2/10/2018
Summary:: During his initial medical exam, fearful and timid, released anal glands, so handling was limited.
ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Remy so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Remy displays with a medium level of energy.
IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS:: In the care center, Remy may need time to warm up, but once comfortable is affectionate and solicits attention from caregivers.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Behavior Asilomar: TM – Treatable-Manageable
Potential challenges: : Fearful
Potential challenges comments:: Fearful: Though observed to be human-social once comfortable, Remy may need time to warm up as he initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away. We recommend allowing Remy to interact at his own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing him to new/unfamiliar situations. Remy may do best with a slow approach/slow introduction and being spoken to in a soft, gentle voice.
