A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: A relative newcomer to Brooklyn when we first met, Sharkie was so well-mannered it seemed he had been here longer and was showing the others how it’s done. It’s never easy for a dog (or person) to adjust to a strange new environment, with unfamiliar sounds and smells, but Sharkie seems to be taking his new quarters in stride. Though still a young pup, he acts like an old soul — quiet in his kennel, which he has kept tidy, and easy to take in and out. He loves to explore, doesn’t pull much on leash, and knows to take care of business outside. He’s beautiful, too, scrumptious as a giant Oreo cookie but way better for you, as he would likely make a great walking or running buddy and then chill out with you after. Meet Sharkie in Brooklyn soon!
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Basic Information: Sharkie came to the center as a stray. The finder stated that found him tied up near her house five days ago (Livonia Ave & Pennsylvania Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11207). Sharkie is a brown brindle and white male dog.
Behavior Notes: Behavior upon intake: Sharkie entered the room with a loose body and wiggly tail. The counselor was able to collar him, take his picture and pet him without any issues. He was taking treats from her.
Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment: 18-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 stands still and accepts the touch, eyes are averted, and tail is in neutral position with a relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Paw squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Paw squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Summary: Sharkie was calm and relaxed during the handling assessment. He displayed a soft body, tail wag, and ears relaxed. Sharkie showed no interest in the toy item.
PLAY GROUP :
Sharkie was surrender as a stray so his past behavior with other dogs is unknown.
7/17: When off leash at the Care Centers, Sharkie is sexually motivated. He persistently follows the greeter around the yard, sniffing and licking her genitals.
7/19: Sharkie remains sexually motivated, and follows the greeter around the pens with perk ears and high vibrating tail. He is slow to listen to handler interruptions. He explores the yard towards the end of his session.
Date of intake: 16-Jul-2018
Summary: Behavior upon intake: Sharkie entered the room with a loose body and wiggly tail.
Date of initial: 17-Jul-2018
Summary: Sharkie was playful.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Sharkie so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. Sharkie displayed medium energy and movement throughout assessment. Sharkie will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
