TO BE KILLED – 3/21/2019
Playful, affectionate, friendly and outgoing, CHASE is just a baby puppy who dreams of an active family who will take him for runs or hikes or a nice swim (come this summer) at the local pond. We all said “aww” when we read his previous parent’s notes about how he just adores water, he likes baths, and he will just lay down and enjoy his spa time. What dogs do that? All of ours try to escape the tub, getting us, the walls, the floors and ceilings soaked! But not Chase. He’s a good boy, a sweet boy, a young boy who just needs a bit of puppy training and some structure so when he kisses kids he doesn’t knock them over in his enthusiasm, and he learns to direct his exuberant personality in a gentler, more positive way. The only reason he is even at the shelter is because his parent cited allergies and a new baby, hardly a decent excuse for dumping a sweet, young man like Chase. Look at his sweet face. There has to be an experienced foster or adopter in an adult only home (kids over age 13 ok) who would love a joyful, ray of sunshine in their lives. Chase is all that and more. Read his owner notes and then rush to PM our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com to foster or adopt baby boy Chase now and save his life.

INTAKE BEHAVIOR - Date of intake:: 3/10/2019
Summary:: Tense, jumped up to greet, allowed handling
ENERGY LEVEL:: Chase is described as having a very high level of activity. He 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 his energy and enthusiasm.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: New Hope Only
Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations:: No children (under 13),Place with a New Hope partner
Recommendations comments:: Due to the extremely high level of mouthing Chase displays at the care center, we recommend an adult only home. Due to the high level of social hyperarousal (non stop jumping and mouthing with moderate pressure) we recommend Chase be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Chase to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Chase to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Chase presents with outside of the care centers.
Potential challenges: : Low threshold for arousal,Basic manners/poor impulse control,Social hyperarousal,Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition,On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration
Potential challenges comments:: Chase jumps up on people and mouths them non stop. While walking, he mouths peoples' feet and arms, applying moderate pressure. It is not easy to distract him from these behaviors. Please see handouts on Basic Manners, Mouthiness, and Arousal. Chase has barked at dogs walking by on leash. Please see handout on On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration.

*** 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).
