INTAKE DATE – 4/7/2019
A beautiful, kind, and incredibly gentle senior lady waits with hope for a family to love her. STAR is a gem. <3
A volunteer writes: “Our eyes met and we both knew at once that we would be friends. Together we walked, at the same pace around the block, Star regularly checking with me for approval. The yard was quiet, except for the birds singing. Star was quick to join me on a bench. I put my arm around her shoulder and together, we listened peacefully to the spring making, finally, its entry. Star was relaxed, content, gave me her paw a few times and even took some treats, quite politely. Kisses were on the menu, too. We were both so comfortable! Star is such a beautiful senior, so well cared for by her former family, a grand dame who is the poster child for a man (woman)'s best friend. Come and meet Star at the Manhattan Care Center. She is the loyal, loving and most wonderful for ever best friend you have been waiting for!” Foster or adopt this darling girl right now.

*** 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).
