INTAKE DATE – 1/10/2019
Playful, downright wiggly and VERY sweet, Cinnamon is a playful girl who has wooed and won the hearts of the Brooklyn Center staff. She must be so thrilled for the attention, love and care she is getting from all her new friends! You see, Cinnamon’s parent stated that she could not longer care for Cinnamon. By the looks of Cinnamon on intake, it appears her parent NEVER cared for her. She had never bathed her or brushed her, she didn’t take her to the vet in a while either, so it was no surprise that at Cinnamon’s medical, she was found to have ingested rodenticide. Now she is undergoing Vitamin K treatments for 4 weeks to help her eradicate the high toxicity in her system. Poor baby, how she managed to be so endearing and adorable to everyone at the shelter is beyond us, given how she must have felt. And what a hellhole she must have been living in! This little youngster (she is only 43 lbs!) would love a caring, committed family who will love her the way she was meant to be loved. So please message our page or email us at MustLoveDogsNYC@gmail.com for assistance fostering or adopting her.

*** 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).
