SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/12/2016  Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands, whines
Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, ears back, whines
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, tries to stay close to assessor
Squeeze 1 / 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy 1: No interest.  

Summary: This is reported to be Nono's first time out of the home. He whined continually throughout the assessment. Body low, tail low, tries to stay close to handler; because of his anxious behavior and inability to relax/settle fully, the behavior department believes Nono may benefit best from an experienced adopter. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Nono to new and unfamiliar situations. A decompression period is advised to aid in acclimating Nono to a new home environment. 

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR:  10/10/2016  During his initial medical examination, Nono appeared a bit tense though tolerated all handling without issue.


Profile  BASIC INFO  Taina A1093000 and Nono A1092998 are Chihuahua shorthair Mix.  Taina was bought from someone in the street, and Nono is Tainas son.  The main reason for surrender is that the owner is allergic to the dogs.  They do not have any health concerns.

SOCIALIZATION Both dogs are very friendly with strangers.  They have not lived with children, but are very calm, relaxed and playful when young children visit.  They have lived with each other and are respectful of one another.  They have never bitten anyone.

BEHAVIOR  They do get anxious when left alone.  During storms or fireworks, they hide.  They allow you to take away their food bowl, water bowl, or toy away.  They are not bothered if you push them off the furniture.  They do resist if you try to bathe them.  If an unfamiliar approaches the doorway, they bark.

FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW  Both dogs are best described as friendly, affectionate and playful.  They have a very high activity level.  Nono and Taina love to play.  They enjoy playing with stuffed toys.  They have been kept mostly indoors.  Today is Nono's first day outside.  They sleep on a doggy bed.  They both eat Pedigree.  They are house trained and go on wee-wee pads.  When left alone, they are well behaved. For exercise, they play with each other.

BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE  They both allowed all handling, collaring and photos.

Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on on Sundays and sometimes on Saturdays--please ask by writing us at and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too.
Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!

If you want to know about cats/dogs specifically being shown at our adoption locations, please email us closer to the date so we know your interest and will make every effort to have that pet at the event or let you know how and where you can meet.  It is extemely helpful and speeds up adoption if the application is filled out prior to visiting us so please do that before coming to our weekend events. Our weekend locations are: Sundays usually and some Saturdays.  Follow us on FB for latest updates. Usually we are in our foster homes so all this is a bit more stressful but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster. And you can always donate:) Cats and Dogs are spayed/neutered, UTD w/ all age appropriate shots and microchipped. Cats are feline combo tested for FIV/FeLV; dogs are heartworm tested and rabies vax'd, (NOT lyme vaxed but we seriously recommend it); rabbits are spayed/neutered.

About Zani's Furry Friends--Northern Outpost

About Our Rescue Group...

Because of the pressing cage space dilemma, we take dogs and cats primarily from Animal Care & Control of NYC. If not for rescue and adoptions, more than the present 24,000 of the current 50,000 animals taken in yearly would not make it out alive. Our goal is to take as many animals as we can who make great family members/companions and give them a second chance. Temperament is our most important criteria. Ideally, all our animals are good w/ people of all ages and other animals (dogs/cats).
Our adoptees are either spayed or neutered, all UTD w/ shots/rabies vax, heartworm negative or feline combo negative, and microchipped. Most of our animals live in foster situations to help them reintegrate back into family life. We feel most animals prefer the company of other animals and hope our adopters consider giving pets to their pets. (We do apply the 2 kitty rule.)
Other times, we courtesy post for people who are obliged to surrender their animals but ask that they continue to foster their companions until appropriate new homes are found to limit the trauma.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our foster animals are in foster homes in or around New York City where they can be seen via appointment w/ the foster family.

We sometimes participate in events sponsored by the Mayor's Alliance of NYC of which we are proud to say we are a participating organization.

Sometimes, unfortunately, our animals are still in the NYC Animal Care and Control facilities for which we desperately seek foster care.

Our Adoption Process...

There is an application, reference checks, home visits, an interview of adopters w/ adoptees, and an adoption donation is required.
