06/16/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Sailor came to the shelter as a stray he has a shiny black coat and beautiful brown eyes. Sailor acts like a puppy investigating everything around him while we walked along. Sailor sits and proudly gives me both paws (he’s so smart) in exchange for a treat. Sailor participates in our play group program and loves other dogs. Sailor would love to go to a home where he would get frequent long walks or a fenced in backyard and perhaps a playmate. If you are interested in meeting Sailor please come to Staten Island ACC.
06/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sailor came into our center as an owner surrender due to child conflict in the home that resulted in a broken skin bite when Sailor was pushed away. Upon intake, Sailor was friendly, jumping affectionately on staff and licking faces, allowed all handling. Sailor walked well on leash for his relief walk. He displayed high energy and movement upon entering SAFER assessment area. Sailor began shoulder rubbing during positioning for Look, eventually jumped up to lick assessor’s face. He leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, mouth open, relaxed. Sailor playfully ran and jumped during Tag game, grabbing leash mid game, a bit difficult to settle at end. He quickly jumped back and moved his body away on Squeeze attempt, therefore remaining item was conducted using Flank. Sailor playfully engaged with Toy, kept a firm grip with loose body. When off leash with other dogs, Sailor engages in boisterous play and is slow to take corrections from human handlers. The Behavior Team feels Sailor would do well with an Experienced adopter that does not have young children. He may benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of daily runs, exercise, play as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. Sailor would benefit from obedience classes to learn body awareness and focus in regards to jumping up/mouthing/playing exuberantly as well as leash manners. He appears to relax when off leash, may do best with a yard. Look: 1. Dog jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, open mouth. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game, grabs leash and difficult to settle Squeeze 1: 3. Dog is soft in body and eye, quickly moves his legs/body away Flank squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy 1: 1. Dog playfully engages, keeps a firm grip, body loose 6/17 update: While continuing to be social toward humans and other dogs outside the kennel, Sailor’s behavior in the kennel appears to be deteriorating. He can get over-excited to exit the kenne, bouncing from wall to wall and pushing against the door, making leashing difficult. He also reacts to certain dogs through the kennel door. This appears to be barrier reactivity, as the behavior resolves out of the kennel. However, due to the intensity of the behavior in the kennel, it is in Sailor’s best interest to move into a stable home environment as quickly as possible.

4/5/16 – Safer – Experienced Home
Sailor has been extremely social and affectionate at the care center, though he is high energy and can be mouthy (without applying pressure). Briefly in a home environment, Sailor was jumping on a 12-year-old child and, when she pushed him away, his teeth contacted her hand and broke skin. Details about the incident are minimal and we cannot draw any conclusions about motivation, but based upon all observed behavior the bite may have been incidental and/or play-related; however, this needs to be taken into consideration by any potential adopters to prevent its recurrence. Sailor will likely need a high amount of physical and mental stimulation (exercise) and he may benefit from positive reinforcement-based training to learn appropriate ways to direct his energy.
Sailor came into our center as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. Upon intake, Sailor was friendly, jumping affectionately on staff and licking faces, allowed all handling. Sailor walked well on leash for his relief walk. He displayed high energy and movement upon entering SAFER assessment area. Sailor pulled out of assessor’s hands on all three Look attempts. He leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, mouth closed. Sailor playfully ran and jumped during Tag game. He did not pull his paw back on first Squeeze attempt, moved his body away during second Squeeze attempt. He showed minimal interest in Toy. Sailor approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, relaxed. The Behavior Team feels Sailor would do well with an Average adopter. He may benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of daily walks, runs, exercise, play as well as durable toys such as kongs and nylabones to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
