**** TO BE KILLED - 5/25/2019 ****
COMPACT CUTENESS IN ALL ITS SPLENDOR. INTRODUCING EEVEE <3 A volunteer writes: Perfectly petite Eevee and her delicate white paws pitter-pattered right into my heart on this spring day. A beautiful brindle-and-white girl, Eevee is about 2 years old, appears to be house trained, and is lovely on the leash. Playful, happy, spunky, and sweet-natured, Eevee enjoyed both exploring in the park and offering me (her lucky human, if just for a while) lots of affection.
I'm not sure if "Eevee" is short for something? Or if her initials are "EV"? I asked her, but she wouldn't tell, she just smiled and kissed me! I do know that she is Endearingly Vivacious, Effortlessly Vibrant, and Enchantingly Valuable. Might you be her fur-ever person or family? Come and meet Eevee at the Manhattan Care Center today.

ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Eveee so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: Level 3
Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations:: No children (under 13)
Recommendations comments:: No children: Due to the high level of jumping and mouthing seen at the care center, we recommend an adult only home.
Potential challenges: : Basic manners/poor impulse control,Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition,Handling/touch sensitivity,Low threshold for arousal
Potential challenges comments:: Basic manners/poor impulse control: Evee jumps up a lot on people in a social manner. Please see handout on Basic Manners.
Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition: Evee has been very mouthy at the care center, at times mouthing with hard pressure and leaving red marks. Please see handout on Mouthiness.
Handling/touch sensitivity: Evee has been sensitivity to certain forms of restraint at the care center, head flipping and mouthing hard when her leash is grabbed or collar is held. She will likely need slow handling and treats to pair restraint with good things. Please see handout on Handling/touch sensitivity.
Low threshold for arousal: Evee has become quickly over aroused at the care center, jumping up and mouthing hard. Please see handout on Arousal.

*** NEW NYC ACC RATING SYSTEM ***
Dogs with Level 1 determinations are suitable for the majority of homes. These dogs are not displaying concerning behaviors in shelter, and the owner surrender profile (where available) is positive. Some dogs with Level 1 determinations may still have potential challenges, but these are challenges that the behavior team believe can be handled by the majority of adopters. The potential challenges could include no young children, prefers to be the only dog, no dog parks, no cats, kennel presence, basic manners, low level fear and mild anxiety.
Dogs with Level 2 determinations will be suitable for adopters with some previous dog experience. They will have displayed behavior in the shelter (or have owner reported behavior) that requires some training, or is simply not suitable for an adopter with minimal experience. Dogs with a Level 2 determination may have multiple potential challenges and these may be presenting at differing levels of intensity, so careful consideration of the behavior notes will be required for counselling. Potential challenges at Level 2 include no young children, single pet home, resource guarding, on-leash reactivity, mouthiness, fear with potential for escalation, impulse control/arousal, anxiety and separation anxiety.
Dogs with Level 3 determinations will need to go to homes with experienced adopters, and the ACC strongly suggest that the adopter have prior experience with the challenges described and/or an understanding of the challenge and how to manage it safely in a home environment. In many cases, a trainer will be needed to manage and work on the behaviors safely in a home environment. It is likely that every dog with a Level 3 determination will have a behavior modification or training plan available to them from the behavior department that will go home with the adopters and be made available to the New Hope Partners for their fosters and adopters. Some of the challenges seen at Level 3 are also seen at Level 1 and Level 2, but when seen alongside a Level 3 determination can be assumed to be more severe. The potential challenges for Level 3 determinations include adult only home (no children under the age of 13), single pet home, resource guarding, on-leash reactivity with potential for redirection, mouthiness with pressure, potential escalation to threatening behavior, impulse control, arousal, anxiety, separation anxiety, bite history (human), bite history (dog) and bite history (other).
