A volunteer writes:
Bernard came into the care center as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He has been social, playful, and easy to handle since intake. He pulled slightly on his relief walk. During his SAFER assessment he allowed all handling items without issue. He did not engage with the toy. He has been a bit nervous with other dogs, avoiding interaction and roaming the yard. We feel that Bernard’s behavior is appropriate for an adopter with an average amount of experience.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is open.
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft.
Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Bernard is a bit nervous and offers a few sniffs before shying away.
7/13: When off leash with other dogs, Bernard is a bit nervous and offers a few sniffs before shying away.
7/14: Bernard roams the yard after one attempt to mount.
