A volunteer writes: Today's horoscope: "Face it. You're a sucker for flattery. And as you should be! Like a lion stalking the jungle you're ever on the hunt for that which feeds your soul. You are a born leader. A trendsetter. One who raises the bar of success of breathtaking heights. Long story short -- fame is your destiny! So dive into your passions and steal some hearts today." When you're right, you're right. 2 year-old Reese is a showstopper, if ever there was one. This king of the urban jungle steals hearts and stops traffic with every step he takes. With a smile brighter than the sun, a coat the color of creme caramel, and enough personality to fill the solar system, Reese is undoubtedly a star. A meeting with Reese starts with that smile and ends with a hug -- the stand-up kind, the best kind -- with lots of treat-catching and laughter in between. Your horoscope for today? "Love is on the horizon. And the horizon is on 110th street! Seize the day. Then seize Reese! And find in him your perfect match." Reese is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan's ACC.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)

Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

Potential challenges: : Handling/touch sensitivity,Fearful

Potential challenges comments:: Handling/touch sensitivity: Reese has displayed some handling and touch sensitivity around his ears, pulling away when the area around the ears is touched. He has not escalated and this behavior may resolve with his ear infections. We recommend going slow with Reese when handling his head and using positive reinforcement training to desensitize him to touch. Fearful: Reese has displayed some fearful behavior, barking at select strangers (mostly men). We recommend allowing Reese to approach all strangers as his own pace and never forcing him into interactions he is not comfortable with. Positive, force free training can help him with this reactivity.
