11/15/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Without meaning to, I saved the best for last, and spent the most wonderful hour with Cotto. Gentle, calm and easy to be with, we walked to the park, Cotto perfectly in step next to me. He alternates between an easy pace and a jaunty step, and whichever it is, is just perfect! Potty was his first priority, and with that out of the way, it was all about us. He’s a bit camera shy, so I was lucky to get one decent shot of him in the park. Off leash in a pen, I enlisted the help of a staff person for some pictures, and as he sat in front of her and she massaged his shoulders, his eyes started to close, drool started to form and it was clear that he was in massage heaven, starting to fall asleep to the rhythm. It was adorable to watch him relax and enjoy to the fullest. If I hadn’t loved him enough before, this took me over the top! Cotto likes to watch people passing our pen, and when a staffer passed by with a small dog, Cotto was right there with an easily wagging tail in greeting. Cotto and I sat on the ground together, and each time Cotto stepped up to explore something new, he was right back next to me, nudging my hand to make room for him closer to me, tail wagging slightly, and then rolling over for a belly rub. He is mellow with a capital MELLOW, gentle, calm, loving and I am head over heels in love. He would be mine in a NY minute if I could. I can’t, but you can. He needs a little time to warm up to a new person, but once he does, you will have a partner for life. He’s awesome. Come meet him and take him home.
11/14/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray Other notes: Upon intake he was growling in the crate but appeared calm and allowed handling once out of the crate. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/13/2016 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. 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: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Dog/dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip long or neutral. Summary: Cotto appears to do best upon a slow/soft approach as he may present as a timid dog; Cotto warmed up significantly when assessor spoke gently, allowed all handling without issue. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: 11/17: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Cotto greats politely. He briefly engages in soft play when solicited. When not engaged, he sniffs around the yard. Cotto attempts to mount select female dogs. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/13/16 During his initial medical exam Cotto allowed handling but appeared a bit tense. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
11/17/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Cotto may briefly engage in some play with female dogs (he has not yet been introduced to a male) but will typically end up mounting; he will not cease despite correction. He arrived to the care center as a stray, so any in-home behaviors with other dogs are unknown. The behavior department recommends slow introductions with any resident dogs. 11/17: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Cotto greats politely. He briefly engages in soft play when solicited. When not engaged, he sniffs around the yard. Cotto attempts to mount select female dogs. 11/18: Cotto greets nicely then only attempts to mount the female dogs in the yard despite correction. 11/23: Cotto spends the majority of his interaction exploring the yard but then solely focuses on mounting.
