A volunteer writes: Meet Bob – the Snugglemeister! Need a gentle hug? Bob, Bob he’s our man, if he can’t do it no one can! Already a volunteer favorite for his gentle good manners, Bob is so delighted to give and receive hugs and kisses from all. Calm and easy, he leans in close for petting, and waits for an invitation to give a hug. He’s so sweet he had my heart in a NY minute; for a puppy he’s incredibly calm and every once in a while breaks into puppy play reminding me that he’s still a baby! He may be housetrained ‘going’ as soon as we were out the door, doesn’t mind being tethered for photos, has lovely leash manners and checks up often as we walk. Bob doesn’t react to dogs passing us on our walk but loved a playful reunion with his sister, Betty, and on a play date with another female dog romped exuberantly. Bob needs a bit of TLC for his coat which is patchy in places, but good nutritious food should fix that right up. He’s an awesome boy looking for a new home. Our behavior assessors were so impressed with him they feel he can go into a home with average dog experience. He’s a legend in the making, so come meet him quickly.
Bob pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling and easily engages in play, body is loose and wiggly, mouth open Bob was not interested in toys. Bob did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
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 likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game.
Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy: 1. No interest.
PLAY GROUP NOTES :
09/15/16: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Bob engages in exuberant play with the female greeter dog. The behavior team feels that Bob may be adopted to a home with another playful dog. He arrived into our care as a stray, so there is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs, and it is unknown how his behavior around dogs will translate into a home setting.
