A volunteer writes: I have a crush on a handsome, compact little boy whose name is Caesar. Tail waggy and snuggly, Caesar was thrilled to be cuddling in my lap after our walk. He’s likely housetrained, using the ‘facilities’ the moment we were out the door, has lovely leash manners, and is soft and sweet. Greeting the kenneled dogs we passed on our way out the door with an easy tail wag, it’s like he was assuring them that their turn would be next. What a nice guy! Caesar has been beautifully taken care of, his coat is clean and groomed, his weight is perfect for his size, and he’s low key and gentle. As he snuggles in my lap, butt in the air, his tail wags as I pet him. So cute! Soft, sweet, gentle, calm and delicious, Caesar is at that perfect age… no more puppy crazies, just a perfect well behaved companion. I adored him snuggling in my lap, and know you will too! A volunteer updates: I spent time with my little buddy again and love him even more if that’s possible. His tail wags, his face is serious, and he loves lap snuggling! He gives soft kisses, and when another dog passed our pen he walks over to greet him with an appropriately wagging tail. Compact, soft and sweet, Caesar may do better with a calm doggie sibling as he doesn’t like rough play. He’s looking for a lifetime cuddle buddy and he’s small enough to fit into most laps. Come test out your lap for fit and be prepared to fall in love.
01/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Caesar pulls a bit on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Caesar did a lot of jumping up, body checking and played tug-of-war with the leash during tag interaction and was a bit difficult to distract him. He was not interested in toys. Caesar show a bit of concern during the tag interaction he became a bit over aroused. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. 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: 3. Dog responds with his tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body stiff and body checks the Assessor. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1. No interest. Playgroup Notes: When off leash with other dogs, Caesar intially greets politely and begins to engage in brief running play with the female helper dog. When Caesar becomes uncomfortable with the helper dog’s style of play, he offers a strong correction and immediately escalates, requiring handler intervention. 2/5 update: Caesar has been at the care center for a month and his behavior appears to be deteriorating. During a recent interaction Caesar grabbed a leash being placed on him and began to play tug intensely. When trying to remove the leash Caesar growled, froze, and snapped. He could not be distracted from leash tugging with a toy and had to be returned to his kennel. Caesar has also been showing signs of increased stress in his kennel. We do not feel that Caesar is thriving in this environment, and needs quick placement into a stable home where he can receive the mental and physical exercise and stimulation that he needs, and proper outlets for his energy.
01/04/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Caesar has had multiple off leash interactions during his stay at the care center, each time leading to him becoming over stimulated and escalating toward the other dog. His level of intensity for each interaction has decreased, however, his propensity to follow after the other dog once the altercation is over is concerning. Based on these observations, the behavior department advises against immediate placement into a home with other dogs until his social behaviors can be followed up on. When off leash with other dogs, Caesar intially greets politely and begins to engage in brief running play with the female helper dog. When Caesar becomes uncomfortable with the helper dog’s style of play, he offers a strong correction and immediately escalates by following and intensely snapping at the helper dog, requiring handler intervention to disrupt the incident. 1/12 update: Caesar is introduced to a calmer, female dog. He approaches and greets, then attempts to mount. He ignores correction from the other dog and persists with attempting to mount. 1/20 update: Caesar again is introduced to a calmer female. He greets with a loose body and immediately offers bows to solicit play from her. They engage in play briefly but Caesar quickly becomes over stimulated and escalates. He jumps onto her and vocalizes. When handlers attempt to separate, Caesar continues to run toward and vocalize at the helper dog.
