**** TO BE KILLED - 9/13/2018 ****
LEMI AIN'T GONNA LET NOTHING AND NO ONE GET HER SPIRITS DOWN. <3 She's that cute compact wigglebutt that you just wanna love, and if you can't have her for yourself you want to know she's safe and loved in a great home. Lemi was found outside by herself on Labor Day. A good samaritan was kind enough to take Lemi in so she wouldn't be hit by a car or end up in the wrong hands. She spent most of her time there in the yard but at least she was out of harms way. Now she's at the Brooklyn shelter where no amount of cuteness or good behavior can stop them from hustling a pooch to the euth list, and that's right where Lemi is today, slated to die in a few hours. What she needs more than anything right now are those magical shares for attention and a true hero. Please don't overlook Lemi. She needs help now more than she ever did.
Hello, my name is Lemi
My animal id is #40640
I am a female gray dog at the
Brooklyn Animal Care Center
The shelter thinks I am about 2 years old, 51 lbs
Came into shelter as a stray Sept. 5, 2018
Lemi is at risk for medical concerns. She has been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, that is contagious to other dogs. She has also been observed to have lameness/sensitivity in the hind area that will need further assessment and possible care. Due to how uncomfortable Lemi is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home with previous dog experience would be most beneficial at this time.
My medical notes are...
Weight: 51.6 lbs
Vet Notes 12/09/2018
[Spay/Neuter Waiver - Upper Respiratory Illness]
Your newly adopted animal is in treatment for an upper respiratory illness. The veterinarian is temporarily waiving this animal from the spay/neuter requirements of the City of NY until such time as the illness has resolved and the pet has sufficiently recovered. At that time, this animal must come into compliance with the spay/neuter requirements.
Details on my behavior are...
Behavior Condition: 2. Blue
Upon intake Lemi was loose body and wagging her tail. She ate treats but wasn't gentle however, she didn't bite hard either. She sat on command and lay down. She scanned negative for a microchip and allowed all handling from staff.
Date of Intake: 9/5/2018
Basic Information:: Lemi is a stray female medium mix breed. She was found as a stray on Labor day. Finder fed her puppy chow and she was mainly outdoors in a yard.
Date of intake:: 9/5/2018
Spay/Neuter status:: No
Means of surrender (length of time in previous home):: Stray, no known history.
Date of assessment:: 9/7/2018
Look:: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor's hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity:: 3. Dog is not fearful and is struggling to get away. The dog is not focused and is in constant movement, unconnected to the Assessor.
Tag:: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Toy:: 1. No interest.
Summary:: Lemi appeared extremely anxious (yelping, high pitched barking/movement) throughout her assessment. She was not fearful but continued to yelp, and pull away whenever the assessor would attempt to pet her. Lemi would return leaning in for petting, but was not comfortable with even the softest touch. Lemi has shown no hint of escalating to aggression or even warnings towards the handlers. He appears highly social and tolerant. Lemi he is uncomfortable with certain types of handling but has good coping skills, moves away when he is uncomfortable and is clearly motivated by human contact.
Summary (1):: Lemi was surrender as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown.
9/6: When off leash at the Care Centers, Lemi display a soft posture when greeting the helper dog. The two dogs begin to flirt- bouncing and paw slapping each other in a playful manner and she flags (offering her genitals) throughout the session.
9/7: Lemi's anxious behavior increased and she had difficulty focusing on the female greeter. After several minutes she approached her with a slightly tense body and followed her around the yard-sniffing her genitals.
Date of intake:: 9/5/2018
Summary:: Upon intake Lemi was loose body and wagging her tail.
ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Lemi so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. Lemi displayed high anxiety and movement throughout assessment.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: ADULT ONLY HOME
Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations:: No children (under 13)
Recommendations comments:: No children: Due to how uncomfortable Lemi is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time.
Potential challenges: : Anxiety
Potential challenges comments:: Anxiety: Lemi has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, barking) continually through the SAFER and through play sessions outside. This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have no known history on Lemi, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment.
