10/06/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Big Bruce–more like Big Smile! When I first walked up to this cutie’s cage, that ginormous smile and tongue hanging out was just about all I could see. 🙂 Bruce is a happy, smiley, and wiggly puppy (I know he’s 2 years old, but trust me, this sweetheart is still a puppy!) who knows how to sit and stay, seems to be house trained, and absolutely loves his toys (especially the ones he can chew on, true to puppy form). Bruce waits calmly and quietly in his cage, looking silently right up at passers by with his big brown eyes. He is so sweet and patient, but just cannot contain his wiggles once we go out for a walk. Bruce passed our behavior test with flying colors and would do great with an adopter with an average level of doggy experience. Come and see this little charmer today!
09/30/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Upon intake Big Bruce was extremely nervous and excited. He was jumping around and panting. Counselor was able to scan and photograph nut unable to collar. During SAFER Big Bruce came into the assessment room relaxed and he had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Big Bruce was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Big Bruce was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Big Bruce appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions, with a soft body posture. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is wagging with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is open for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, jumps up playfully. Squeeze 1: 1 Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2:1 Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Playgroup:When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Big Bruce displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting a novel female dog. He is sexually motivated, persistently licking the female’s genital area. He is persistent after she offers him a soft correction and the handlers interrupt.
09/29/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Big Bruce was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Big Bruce displays high energy, rushing the gate and displaying loose and wiggly body language when greeting male and female dogs. He repeatedly attempts to mount, persisting after the handler interrupt and the other dog offers correction. Due to persistently mounting behavior, the Behavior Department recommends that Big Bruce be the only dog in the home, however a dog-dog interaction can be conducted prior to adoption to assess the other dog’s comfort level with Big Bruce’s behavior. 9/29: Big Bruce displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting a novel female dog. He is sexually motivated, persistently licking the female’s genital area. He is persistent after she offers him a soft correction and the handlers interrupt. 9/30: Big Bruce displays high energy, rushing the gate and displaying loose and wiggly body language when greeting a male dog. He repeatedly attempts to mount, persisting after the handler interrupt. He displays bouncy body language as he chases the male dog around, continually attempting to mount him.
