10/23/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
Roxanne A1044908 is a 1yr 11mth old spayed female black & white AMPBT/Lab mix who was adopted from us in 2015 and is being surrendered along with her “sister” Cola A10944 due to the owner not having room for them, being pregnant and cost. Cola was last seen by a veterinarian in Jan 2016 and Roxanne was last seen in Aug 2015. They currently have no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Around strangers Roxanne is fearful/nervous/”standoffish”. She’s lived with a 9yr & 12 old and was gentle, exuberant, relaxed, playful with them also the adults in the home & Cola. Roxanne has never bitten/scratched any person or animal but they stated she’s tried to “get at” people and animals during walks. She barks, growls, tenses up and lunges at them. Behavior: Roxanne isn’t bothered by the following: having her food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved, being moved off of furniture, being brushed or being bathed. She hasn’t been disturbed while sleeping/resting and doesn’t like having her nails trimmed, after the first attempt no further tries were attempted. If someone approaches the home/family member Roxanne will bark, growl sometimes lunge and is kept in a crate or room while visitors are over. The owner stated they tried to get her dog training through one of our resources but they told her Roxanne needs more work than they’re able to provide. For A New Family to Know: Roxanne is friendly, affectionate, playful, confident & independent with a high activity level. Roxanne enjoys playing. She enjoys squeaky toys and games of fetch, chase, wrestling & tug. Roxanne is mostly an indoor only dog who sleeps anywhere & is walked 2x a day where she pulls strongly on her leash. Roxanne eats wet & dry Pedigree or Beneful 2x a day. She will have accidents in the home if someone takes too long to take her out or if she gets too excited but isn’t fully house broken. When left home alone Roxanne is in a crate for up to 9-10hrs and she doesn’t listen to any commands. Intake Behavior: Roxanne entered already barking, howling and pulling the owner towards us. She didn’t want us to get too close at times and allowed minimal handling with assistance from the owner. She allowed them to scan (+), collar & assist with taking her picture. Her lovely volunteer pictures are a little over a year old which is why I didn’t leave them up. She hopped into her kennel on her own and began growling and barking whenever someone approaches.
07/28/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I met Umi as she was being walked by another volunteer. Such a great pup on the leash and looking so happy and carefree, just like a puppy should be. Umi is adorable in her shiny ebony dress and she is all ears and eyes when she sees a treat and a ball. She is an excellent “sitter,” obeying my order in a military way. She eliminates in the street or in the yard. Could she be house-trained, or partially? Umi seems to like other dogs met through the fence or during our stroll. I heard that she has a very good time in playgroups with other pooches. Umi is a very pretty and petite young girl, quite friendly and affectionate, good with her own kind and ready to jump into your life as your forever best friend. Just like any puppy, she will need some guidance and training, time and commitment to make of her the best pet you can ever dream of. Umi is at the Manhattan Care Center.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Spayed, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults/children/dogs Behavior toward children: Gentle/Playful Behavior toward dogs: Gentle/Playful Behavior toward cats: Unknown FG/RG: None reported Bite history: Not reported Housetrained: Not reported Energy level/descriptors: Not reported Other notes: She barks, growls, tenses up and lunges at people/animals on walks. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/25/16 Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Roxanne was difficult to remove from her kennel she was in the back with a fearful body language, nervous and trembling and has a crouched body posture. She is fearful of the shelter environment she walks with a low and fearful body language. Roxanne was uncomfortable with handling; she stands tall, and tries to make herself appear large. She wrinkles her muzzle when the behavior team tries to collar her. PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/23/16 During her initial medical examination, Roxanne is highly uncomfortable and allows minimal handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13)(See known history) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Roxanne has attempted to snap multiple times during his stay at our care centers, for this reason along with known history, we believe Roxanne would benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (See known history; Roxanne has displayed fearful/defensive behavior during her stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling; any form of direct touch may result in a fearful bite. It is recommended that Roxanne be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Roxanne to new and unfamiliar situations.)
