****TO BE KILLED 3/26/18****
SWEET AND SHY, a little flower to blossom in her new home to come. Princess Lima Bean is friendly, gentle, easy to handle and so easy to love. All that is missing is a home to be a cherished part of forever. Please share! A volunteer writes: Princess Lima Bean is a delicate flower, soft and affectionate and longing for someone to take her under their wing and make her feel safe. She's shy at first, but very much wants to be friends, and with a 'slow and low' approach, is happy to come closer for petting and get dressed in a bandanna for our photo shoot. No camera can truly capture her aristocratic beauty, and she's not a fan of posing. Fortunately, my fun-loving friend Simba is playing in the pen next-door. The two are soon enraptured with each other. Princess hops onto the bench and gazes longingly through the fence, whining a little at her beau who jumps and grins hello back at her, then throws in a few reciprocal whines of his own. Even after he leaves the yard, her big brown eyes keep watch on the door, a perfectly loyal Juliet wondering wherefore art her Romeo. I'm a poor substitute but try to soften the loss with some gentle snuggles, and Princess sweetly rewards me with fluttering little cheek kisses. Out in the street she walks nicely on leash, almost immediately takes care of business, and passes yappy small dogs with ease. When a familiar staff member approaches, she greets them with tiny happy tail wags. Princess is quietly charming, easy to handle and so easy to love. With time and TLC from a caring family, she's going to blossom into the most wonderful pet. Visit our Manhattan Care Center and discover this hidden gem for yourself. You'll be so glad you did.

Future introductions to dogs should be conducted at a very slow pace, only to respectful dogs.

ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Princess Lima Bean so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations:: No young children (under 5)
Recommendations comments:: No young children: Due to the potential fear and anxiety Princess Lima Bean has displayed at the care center, we recommend a home without young children.
Potential challenges: : Fearful,Anxiety
Potential challenges comments:: Fearful: Princess Lima Bean is a bit fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Princess Lima Bean the option to walk away from any social interaction. Princess Lima Bean should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Princess Lima Bean's choice to approach a new person or thing. Princess Lima Bean would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.
Anxiety: Princess Lima Bean appears anxious in the care center, whining and crying in her kennel and panting and whining outside of it. We have no history on her in a home, so we do not know if this behavior will be present outside of the care center. If it does occur, we recommend giving her puzzle toys, long walks, and things to do to relieve her anxiety. Positive reinforcement, reward based training only should be used.
