06/30/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Coral can be a little unsure and nervous, but there is something undeniably sweet about her, and she always manages to linger on my mind. I had to coax her out of her cage the first few times we met, but once out, she was very easy to handle. She has good leash manners, is very treat-motivated, seems housebroken and knows “sit.” Her eyes are kind of sad and it looks like she’s done a lot of living. As soon as I sit on the bench she hops up to sit at my side. She seems comforted by petting, and on recent walks will softly wiggle her tail when I talk to her or when we encounter familiar faces. She really lights up at the sight of a ball and loves to play fetch. She brings the ball right back, drops it in my lap or at my feet, and demand-barks if I take too long to throw it again…she could be cast in the commercial for that automatic ball-launcher we’ve all seen on YouTube! It’s so nice to watch this worried little lady enjoy herself, and I hope she can find a home where carefree is her new normal!
06/22/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Coral came into the shelter as a stray, so her past behaviors are unknown. At intake Coral allowed handling. During SAFER Coral came into the assessment calm, and seemed to be a bit dull. She was calm towards the assessor with her head held low. She allowed all handling items to be conducted with a tense body posture. Coral was fearful during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Coral allowed handling when engaged with the item. Coral was tense throughout the assessment with her tail tucked, and maintained a low body posture. Coral has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Coral is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Coral be given the opportunity to interact at her own pace. The behavior department feels Coral can be suitable for an experienced adopter (no young children). Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is tucked. She allows head to be held in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body stiff, and mouth closed, ears back. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body low, fearful. Squeeze 1: 1.

06/21/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Coral was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Coral is initially nervous but wanders in the pen in a calm group of males and females. With further play group sessions, Coral has become more relaxed in a group of calm dogs. The Behavior Department recommends that Coral be placed in a home with a dog that matches her calm energy level. 6/21: Coral is nervous, greeting the other dog with a tense face. She wanders in the pen, relaxing slightly. 6/22: Coral is nervous as she wanders in the pen in a group of calm males and females. 6/24-6/25: Coral is more relaxed as she wanders in the pen with a group of calm males and females. 6/26- 6/27: Coral greets each dog in the pen but does not interact any further. She does step in between two dogs to slow them down when their play becomes a little rowdy. Otherwise she wanders around the pen occasionally seeking attention from the handlers.
