03/20/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/20/17 16:40 Bae has a warm wiggly body when interacting with the counselor and will solicit affection such as jumping on lap and licking. While the counselor was sitting down on a chair, the counselor was able to take Bae’s face in her hands and open her mouth to look at her teeth. Counselor was also able to touch Bae’s ears, touch Bae’s body with her hands all over starting from the head to the tail and then touching Bae’s belly and legs down to her paws. During this interaction, Bae was standing on the counselor’s top thighs and was at eye level with the counselor and was intermittently licking the counselor’s face. The counselor then got up and Bae was sniffing the ground, very interested in something. The counselor went over to Bae and was able to touch her all over, again, and touch around Bae’s face and neck, where her collar was. Bae was still sniffing intently and was not bothered that the counselor was doing this. When Bae was at a distance, on leash, and the counselor called her over, Bae came running and jumped on counselor with a puppy-like energy. Inside the building the counselor got down on her knees with Bae, and Bae turned her body into the counselor’s and let the counselor touch Bae’s body and pet her face and then licked the counselor’s face. Inside the building, Bae also approached another staff member who was coming towards Bae with a low wagging tail and allowed that staff member to pet her. During all these interactions Bae displayed a puppy-like energy with a low wagging tail, sometimes fast, sometimes slow and the counselor did not feel uncomfortable at all.
03/11/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I googled the name ‘Bae’ and found out it’s a term of endearment meaning ‘boyfriend’ or ‘girlfriend’. Well, OK–I like that!! Bae is definitely girlfriend material! She’s gorgeous, anxious in her kennel to come out for a walk to show off her housetraining skills, and doesn’t mind a coat against the cold. Bae is a great sport in the snow, walking nicely on leash after some initial excited pulling. Showing off her sit for a treat–which she takes so gently with nom nom nom noises (so cute!)–she then shakes paw and gives me a stand up hug. Bae wants to greet everyone we pass on our walk, but not everyone wants to meet a happy enthusiastic girl, so a short leash is recommended. Take a look at Bae’s volunteer walking log to see how many times the words “happy”, “sweet” and “loveable” are used. Impressive! There’s a depth in her eyes as she snuggles close to me for a love fest, and I wish she could verbalize what she’s thinking. It’s said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, and that certainly seems to be true with Miss Bae. She’s waiting to meet her soul mate; don’t make her wait long.
03/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/28/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/2/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is down, body tense, mouth closed Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game, distracted at times. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog sits. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy. Summary: Bae appeared friendly in the assessment room but appeared fearful during up close handling; her body became tense and she moved away from the assessor during sensitivity and squeeze. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Proximity Sensitive: These dogs have had a poor history of social experience with other dogs or could be extremely fearful in the shelter environment. They are socially shy and may exhibit fearful body posturing (tucked tail, head low, snarling etc), defensive posturing (lunging, barking, snarling etc.) or physically avoid/ignore other dogs. They will emit warning signals to the other dog to back away but if they are forced to interact they may snap. PLAYGROUP: Bae has not been comfortable engaging with other dogs in the care center. When approached Bae offers correction, and most recently, has begun to growl and snap toward other dogs through fences and barriers. Bae may be most comfortable in a single dog residence. Due to arriving as a stray history around other dogs is not available. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/28/17 During her initial medical exam, Bae allowed handling but was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Bae so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment, though Bae has displayed a high level of activity and exuberance in the care center. She is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
IN-SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: 3/3/17 Bae is showing signs of stress and frustration in the kennel environment, barking continuously and no longer accepting treats in the kennel. We recommend that she move out of the kennel and into a stable home environment as quickly as possible. 3/17/17: Bae has shown an increased level of arousal during her stay at the care center. Upon seeing and approaching dogs she will stiffen, growl, bark and snap without easily being calmed or distracted. She has also begun showing stereotypical behaviors, ie chasing her tail, and quickly becomes aroused while she does it. If handlers or other dogs approach while she is spinning she will growl and chase them barking/snapping. Though these behaviors may be attributed to her stay here, the behavior department recommends Bae leave the shelter environment quickly before further rehearsing these behaviors. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to the discomfort Bae currently displays with up close handling, we feel that a home without young children would be most beneficial at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful: Bae has displayed fearful behavior in the care center, avoiding contact with new people, and has displayed discomfort with some handling from new people. It is important to always go slow and give Bae the option to walk away from any social interaction. Bae should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Bae’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Bae would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings. _X_Single dog home: See the Play Group section for more detailed information. _X_No dog parks: Future introductions should be conducted on a one on one basis. _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: Bae has shown concerning behaviors toward other dogs during her stay at the care center. Upon seeing them she will tense and when allowed to sniff through a barrier she will stiffen, bark, growl and snap without easily being calmed or distracted. Though she has not exhibited these behaviors on walks outside the care center, we recommend exercising caution when walking Bae in area highly trafficked by other dogs.
