11/03/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/03/16 17:13 Finder stated that Angela approached her right away and allowed all handling. Finder had 2 small female dogs at home that was not spayed & stated that Angela was curious around them and tried to smell them all the time. Finder also mentioned that when you put her food down for her and try to take it back, she growls. Behavior during intake: Angela was relaxed and wiggly during intake and jumped on my lap to give me kisses. I was able to scan her for a mc, collar her and take her picture without any issues.
11/15/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: When I heard from the shelter staff that there was a new and very friendly female dog in the shelter, I couldn’t wait to meet her. They named her Angela, and that beautiful name fits her perfectly. She sat so quietly in her clean kennel, that I thought I might be disturbing her by taking her out. A quick tail wag, and off we went to explore. Angela displays her submissiveness towards me, and she is so gentle and kind whenever I pet her. Angela is terrific on leash and wags her tail with excitement as we see other dogs on the walk. Someone took great care of Angela, as she has shown polite manners to volunteers and staff throughout her stay at the shelter. Angela is a true gem in my eyes, and I’m sure she won’t disappoint you either. Angela is waiting for you to wisk her away to a new home. You’ll be glad you did!
11/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Limited Unaltered, stray Behavior toward dogs: Curious about the finder’s 2 small female dogs (both unspayed) – sniffed them consistently. FG/RG: The finder reported that when food is taken away, Angela growls. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/8/2016 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture, open mouth pant, ears back Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched, jumps lightly on assessor at end of game Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not pull back paw, licks hand Toy 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, then walks away. Dog-dog 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral Summary: No concerns were seen during the SAFER assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with other dogs, Angela was very polite and tolerant when greeted by a sexually motivated male. She offered a few play bows and often solicited play. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/3/2016 Angela allowed all handling during her initial medical examination ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to potential food guarding behavior. With the finder, Angela gave an appropriate warning of her discomfort (growl) but we feel that young children may not know to respect this warning. Older, dog savvy children can be considered as long as the adults feel confident that Angela can be left alone while eating so she does not need to escalate from a growl. Behavior modification for food guarding behavior can be found at aspcapro.org. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: The finder reports that Angela growls if her food bowl is taken away while she is eating. We recommend that Angela be left alone while eating to prevent rehearsal of the warning as well as to prevent escalation.
11/09/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
