SAFER – 3/15/16
Bailey came into our center as an owner surrender citing housing issues. It is reported she has been in the presence of children, sometimes playing a bit rough and unintentionally knocking them over. Owner reports Bailey has been around cats, relaxed and respectful. It is reported she is not bothered if anyone touches her Food, Toys, Treats. She is reportedly housebroken but may be destructive of household items. Bailey is reportedly well behaved in the yard. She is described as friendly, playful, excitable. Bailey allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands during Look item, eyes averted, tail wagging. She leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, body soft. Bailey was distracted and unresponsive during Tag game, settled easily at end. She pulled her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Bailey showed no interest in Toy, though this may be due to the environment as owner reports she enjoys all sorts of dog toys and will play with just about anything. Bailey approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, not stiff. Owner reports Bailey has engaged in play with other dogs and can tend to play in a rough manner. Due to rough play that results in knocking children over, the Behavior Team feels Bailey would do well with an Experienced adopter that does not have young children. She may benefit initially from a slow approach/slow introduction as well as a calm, quiet, structured environment so she can relax and know what to expect in her new home. Bailey may benefit from obedience classes to learn body awareness as well as crate training which will be beneficial to decrease any destruction of household items as reported by her previous owners.
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 leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, mouth closed, tail wag
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1/ 2. 2 Dog pulls back paw
Toy 1. No interest.
Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral
When off leash with other dogs, Bailey was polite when greeting a male dogs but did not engage in any play. She stays by handlers side most of the time and responds well when corrected for jumping on another dog’s back.
3/17 update : Bailey appears interested in interacting but may be too scared, She often keeps her distance but will walk past the dog for a sniff every now and then also when other dog interacts with handlers with her tail wagging. She does whine a lot and often will stay close to human handlers.
