A volunteer writes: Helllloooo Handsome! Smoke is a stunning boy in a gorgeous color coat that is grayish, beigeish – it sort of defies description, but suffice it to say that he is clean, well groomed, and his coat is lush and stunning. Joining us when his owner ran into some personal difficulties, Smoke is trying to make the best of a difficult situation. He is super friendly, welcoming me to his kennel door with a big grin and tail wag. We went into the backyard where Smoke was thrilled to chase a tennis ball, and although he has not mastered the art of retrieve, he allowed me to take the ball from his mouth to throw again. As other dogs came over to investigate, Smoke wagged his tail appropriately in greeting, clearly wanting to play. Smoke is a sweetheart who through no fault of his own finds himself without a home. Our wish for him is to find a new home with someone who will be happy to toss him a ball, take him on long walks and smother him with love. If you are lucky, that could be you. Meet handsome Smoke today. A volunteer writes: Smoke is a stunning dog who attracts attention where ever we go. Whether it is his handsome coat, big ears or fun, playful, tail wagging demeanor – who knows. His leash manners are good, he loves to hug and kiss and have fun. He has wonderful sweet energy that will be best in an active family who can take him for long walks, toss a ball and then cuddle up for some down time. This handsome boy is ready to find his new BFF. Ask to meet Smoke today.
03/17/2013 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Assessor Alfonso S. Helper: A0959362 ***Smoke has the ability to be easily aroused and potential for resource guarding. Although he is friendly, he needs a calm experienced owner who can manage this behavior in a home with no children. Smoke pulled a bit on his relief walk and may be house trained – toileted immediately when taken outside. Although he behaved friendly, he was excited and more interested in the surroundings than the handler during the assessment. He was overexcited during handling, jumping up and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Smoke kept his head in the bowl as he growled and snapped at the assess-a-hand during the food test. He put his body over the toy protecting it and quick mouthed the assess-a-hand to prevent it from reaching the toy, then showed some concerning behavior during the rawhide test – stiffening and growling, but did not escalate to a snap or bite to the assess-a-hand. Smoke rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test, but showed no aggression. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 3. Dog responds with his tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body tense and mouth’s assessor. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room. Squeeze 1 & 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Food: 4. Dog growls and snaps. Toy: 3. Dog takes toy away, body blocks and guards toy. Rawhide: 4. Dog freezes and growls. Dog-dog: 3. Dog approaches the helper dog by rushing in with his tail high, stiff body, head tall, and ears erect.

For more information on adopting please read the following:
DO NOT call the shelter 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 a particular dog, email firstname.lastname@example.org but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates… the only thing you will accomplish is spamming their in boxes and causing REAL adopter emails to go unnoticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions. — with Rosangela Goz, Carley Boulet, DebLuvs MommyPittie and 22 others.
