07/18/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Hi, I’m Clint…yup–like Clint Eastwood but better looking and sexier! I made a ton of new friends yesterday, I really like people and like to wag my tail and give them kisses, and sit when they ask me to, and take their treats gently. My new best friend named Volunteer laughed at me and said I have a neck like a football player–thick and meaty! I took that as the sincere compliment it was meant to be. I’m super housetrained and had been holding it for a while, so went so much and so often my friends were sort of laughing at me…all in a fun way, of course. I love playing fetch and will bring the ball back and you can take it right out of my mouth. Some small dogs were playing in the pen next to mine and I was wagging my tail at them, hoping I could play, but Volunteer said I was too big and they were too small. I was scared when I first got here so did some growling and barking on my first day, but I’m one with the routine now and am always quiet in my kennel, respectfully waiting for my turn for a walk. I don’t always like going back into my kennel (I mean, who would?), but when my friend Volunteer took me out to play for the second time, I showed her how much I appreciated her time and love and hopped right back in as I knew that was what was expected. So, in summary, what I’d really love is a new best friend for love, walks and fetch, and am quietly waiting until you find me. Please don’t make me wait too long.
07/16/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 7/13/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 7/16/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Summary: Clint allowed all handling during his assessment and was social at times. He displayed a large amount of strength, pulling on the leash to sniff things in the room. PLAYGROUP: Clint interacts politely with female dogs in the care center. With prolonged interaction, he attempts to mount. The behavior department feels that Clint may be most compatible with respectful, tolerant female dogs. Slow introductions are recommended. Clint has not yet been introduced to a male dog in our care, so behavior around them is not known at this time. INTAKE BEHAVIOR Upon intake, Clint was growling and barking. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/13/17 During his initial medical exam, Clint was growling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Clint so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: In the shelter Clint has been highly social with handlers and relaxed with all handling. He solicits handler attention in a calm manner and has displayed no concerning behaviors (i.e. jumping up, arousal). He pulls hard on the leash on walks, and a potential adopter would need the handling skills necessary to work on this in the home. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: At intake, Clint growled and barked at the counselor, and was growling during medical. Since intake, he has been social with handlers and has not demonstrated any concerning behavior. It is important to always go slow and give Clint the option to walk away from any social interaction. Clint should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to handling. It should always be Clint’s choice to approach a new person or thing. _X_Strength/leash pulling: Clint is a very large, strong dog with the capability to pull over an average adopter. His adopter must be prepared and able to handle a dog of this size and strength. It is recommended that he be walked on a front clip harness or head halter, which help diminish his strength through leverage.
