07/15/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Cindy is one of those dogs you wish you could just hug and tell her everything will be ok. Found as a stray, she was quite scared when she arrived to the care center, and she did everything cautiously. Loud noises startle her and she stays close to her person for comfort. She is a bit guarded at times, and was more interested in seeking a calm place to hang out than to play. Cindy loves treats, loves to be pet and seemed friendly toward passing dogs. She is absolutely stunning, and though she came in as a stray, it seems she had been given care: her coat gleams, she is a healthy weight and her teeth reflect a healthy diet. Cindy is ready to find a family and home that will cherish her forever! Ask to meet her today.
07/05/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cindy came into our center after a member of the public fund her as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. During intake, she was relaxed and allowed all handling. Cindy walked well on her relief walk, no pulling. She was uncomfortable upon entering the SAFER assessment room, tail tucked, keeping some distance between her and the assessor. Once positioned, she allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, lip lick, body a bit tense. Cindy stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, body a bit tense, mouth closed. Cindy initially followed at the end of the leash for Tag game,but stopped following after first pass, would not approach assessor at end of game and required gentle coaxing. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Cindy appeared interested in Toy, but never fully engaged. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Cindy is nervous. She greets the other dog with a low body, tucked tail and tense face. She spends most of her time wandering in the pen, ignoring the other dog. Due to her discomfort, the Behavior Team feels Cindy would do best with an Experienced adopter that does not have young children. Any older children should have an in-depth interaction before considering adoption. Cindy would do best with a slow approach/slow introduction, as well as first going home to a calm, quiet, structured environment so she can relax and warm up at her own pace. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body a bit tense, lip lick; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, body a bit tense, mouth closed Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched, does not follow at end of leash, does not easily approach at the end, requires gentle coaxing. Squeeze 1 / 2: 1.
