07/01/16 13:34 Animal’s appearance – The dogs fur appeared to be to be clean and seemed to be at a healthy weight. Animal’s demeanor with you – The dog allowed all handling. The finder stated he found the dog wandering the street but states the dog was approachable and friendly. The finder took the dog in and posted flyers but due to his work schedule he feels it is unfair to the dog to remain in the care.
07/08/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Butterscotch is a cute little guy anxiously waiting for his forever home. Butterscotch is scared of the noise in the shelter, but once away from the noise, he perks up and relaxes. I think Butterscotch would like a nice quiet home to grow old in. If you’re interested in giving Butterscotch a home, please come to the Care Center and meet him.
07/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Butterscotch came into our center after a member of the public found him as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. He was difficult to place in and out of kennel, needed a towel, but once out of the kennel became more relaxed. Butterscotch allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, lip lick. He stood still during Sensitivity item, body a bit tense, ears and tail neutral. Butterscotch did not follow at end of the leash for Tag game, unresponsive to each pass. He quickly moved his paw back on first Squeeze attempt, moving his body away, therefore remaining item was conducted using Flank. He head flipped on both Flank Squeezes. Butterscotch showed no interest in Toy. He approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, body neutral, tail at spine level. The Behavior Team feels Butterscotch would do best with an Experienced adopter that does not have any children. He would benefit from going home to a calm, quiet, structured environment so he can relax and warm up at his own pace. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he 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, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body a bit tense, mouth closed Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, does not follow at end of the leash Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back Flank squeeze 1 / 2: 3. Dog head flips Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip neutral.
