TO BE KILLED 9/7/2018
“I’ve been in more laps than a napkin.” -- Mae West
Roxanne can relate because just like her idol, Mae West, she’s a STAR! She’s super cute, a little dumpling with a stout body and an ear set that has seen better days. But she considers her ears her signature beauty feature and we do too! In fact, she is the resident “greeting committee” at the Manhattan ACC, eager to meet every new person who passes her way and make them a forever friend. And who could pass by this amazing beauty with her joyful countenance, happy spirit and sparkling personality? Roxanne is a gem, our latest crush, and she’s soon to be yours. Don’t let her wait too long, get sick and end up on the dreaded list. Scoop up this stellar sweetheart today and foster or adopt her! PRIVATE MESSAGE our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance.

Roxaaaaaaane. Guaranteed you're going to want to put on the green lights for this wonderfully magnificent girl. Now, Roxanne is what we call a "mixed breed," and from what my expert eye can tell, she is a 100% genuine cross of miniature harbor seal and apple dumpling. But you can leave the cinnamon and spice at home because Roxanne has plenty to spare. With her #tot ready smile, her wistfully wiggly waddle, and her passion for greeting everyone and everybody, Roxanne is as sweet as they come. Roxanne is the perfect age at 5 years old, appears to be housebroken, and takes her treats gently (and often). She is an energetic, little dumpling who does pull slightly on leash, so might do best with an experienced and active family who'll give her plenty of chances to strut her stuff. Roxaaaaaaaane! Say your prayers for all green lights en route to this special girl. And as criminally cute as she is, no need to call the Police. Just call her lovingly home. Roxanne is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
Roxanne... is the green light to happiness <3
ROXANNE, ID # 39775, @ 5 Yrs. Old, 56 lbs.
Manhattan ACC, Large Breed, Brown / White, Female
I came into the shelter as a agency on 28-Aug-2018.
Date of intake:: 8/28/2018
Means of surrender (length of time in previous home):: Stray
Date of assessment:: 8/30/2018
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 leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag:: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Paw squeeze 1:: 2. Dog quickly pulls back.
Paw squeeze 2:: 2. Dog quickly pull back.
Flank squeeze 1:: Item not conducted
Flank squeeze 2:: Item not conducted
Toy:: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog may smell or lick, then turns away.
Summary:: Roxanne approached the assessor with a soft body. She was social during the assessment, allowed all handling, and displayed no concerning behaviors.
Summary:: Due to discomfort observed when greeting the helper dog and in the shelter environment, Roxanne may benefit from having a period of decompression before immediate introduction to other dogs. Future introduction should be conducted at a slow pace to respectful dogs.
Summary (1):: 8/29: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog, Roxanne is tense and keeps to herself.
Summary (2):: 8/30: Roxanne freezes and lip licks at the gate. She is not brought in off leash.
ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Roxanne so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.
IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS:: When Roxanne initially arrived at the shelter, she displayed some antisocial behavior, (whale eye and walking away). However, once outside of her kennel, and given time to acclimate, she displays more social behavior, seeking attention briefly and accepting treats gently.
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 for defensive aggression
Potential challenges comments:: Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: During her first day at the care center, Roxanne showed teeth when approached in the kennel and while being pet. Since that time, she has been social with handlers and has not displayed this behavior. We do not know what other contexts this behavior may occur, so we recommend approaching Roxanne slowly and always allowing her to approach. If she does show teeth while being handled, all handling should stop immediately.
