Robel walks calmly on the leash and was shy but friendly during the assessment - low body and tail, but trying to stay close. He was shy during handling, but had soft body language. He was calm and relaxed when playing tag with assessor. He did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Robel was not interested in toys or rawhides and was relaxed when approaching the helper dog, but was not playful.

Squeeze 1 & 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back.
Food: 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish's movement.Dog's body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. He lifts his head when hand is pushed against his cheek.

RESCUE CONTACTS & INFORMATION for potential Fosters and Adopters, NYACC
DO NOT call and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff's time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a "fake adoption" hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
For more information on adopting, please visit their website, urgentdeathrowdogs.org and click on “How You Can Help.” There are also helpful links with information on each main album description.
