09/29/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I know at first glance you might think China is a hyena– those big ears and spots can be deceiving– but she’s actually a sweet little lady dog. Much calmer, quieter, and prettier than a real hyena. 🙂 China is a sweet, wiggly ball of happiness despite her splotchy skin (she will likely need some extra care and attention to deal with her skin problem). She walks perfectly on a leash, doesn’t seem to have a problem with other dogs, and appears to be housetrained. She’s still learning how to sit for treats, but I expect her to learn quickly– she’s very motivated, as she loves treats! Please come and see China today. Don’t let this little lady get overlooked.
09/24/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
China came into the shelter as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. Behavior during intake: China was playful and excitable she allowed all handling. During SAFER China was friendly when entering the assessment room she had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, she allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. China was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. China was easy to handle when engaged with the items. China appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail down and ears relaxed, lip licks. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and a low tail wag with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1.
