Rufus A0938455 – 3 yr. neutered Lab / Hound mix, stray; 75 pounds
Rufus walks calmly on the leash and was sociable toward the handler during the assessment - soft body, low wag. He was calm and relaxed during handling and when playing tag with assessor. He was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. Rufus was easy to handle when chewing on toys and rawhides and approached the helper dog with friendly/playful body language.
Chester A0937915 – 5 yr. neutered Lab/collie mix, stray: 84 pounds
Chester walks calmly on the leash and was shy but friendly during the assessment - low body and tail, but trying to stay close. He was tense during handling, but had soft body language. He had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. He was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. Chester was not interested in toys or rawhides and was relaxed when approaching the helper dog, but was not playful.
Sandy A0936953 – 4 yr. spayed Lab mix, OS: 30 pouunds
A volunteer writes: Sandy is a pretty and delicate looking tiny Labrador who ended up in our care because the landlord did not allow pets. She is jet black. Her eyes, the color of copper look like two sources of light. Sandy does not like her kennel. She barks when she sees me taking other dogs out. She is used to freedom and most likely is used to being the princess in her former house. Sandy's turn has come. She is a bit aloof, not familiar with me. I remember what my mother used to say, "do not talk to strangers..." Sandy is well-behaved on the leash. She does not pull or zig-zag. She obediently sits on command and poses remarquably well for the pictures. She is civil with big and little dogs when we walk through the park. She relieved herself after a long walk. Her present situation is not to her liking. Still, she sat next to me on the sidewalk and little by little decided to "talk" to me... Sandy needs more walks, more talks and mostly a new home and a loving family. Home is where she truly belongs. Sandy is at the Manhattan Care Center. Please be her lucky star...has not lived around cats and growls at, friendly around strangers and children
