01/08/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Forget that little boy with the arrows, our pretty girl Cupid is the undisputed Queen of Snuggles and she’s here to capture ALL the hearts! A sleek yet solid beauty who turns heads wherever she goes, Cupid’s face alternates between a pleading pout and an ear-to-ear grin but no matter what expression she’s wearing, this special pup is adorable with a capital A. She does pull a bit in her enthusiasm to get outside and likes to follow her nose rather than my lead once we hit the street but Cupid is no fool and will ‘come’ or ‘sit’ politely on command, always eager to please and be rewarded with a tasty treat…or five! And don’t be fooled by her sometimes vocal kennel attitude, outside her den Cupid is keen to meet new friends of both the two- and four-legged variety and her tail wags happily in greeting as they pass nearby. When I show her a little petting love she immediately abandons any ladylike pretensions, flops onto her side and shamelessly wiggles her way across my lap before rolling belly-up to beg for more. It’s easy to fall in love with a dog this gorgeous, sociable and smart so get a jump start on Valentine’s Day this year and make a date with Cupid, the sweet’n’snuggly girl of your dreams!
01/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cupid pulls a bit on leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, grabbing at the leash. She was overexcited during handling, jumping up, grabbing at the leash, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Cupid did a lot of jumping up, body checking and played tug-of-war with the leash during tag interaction. She took the toy with a soft body language. Cupid show a bit of concern during the tag interaction she became a bit over aroused. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs her shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. Tag: 3. Dog responds with her tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body stiff and body checks the Assessor. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy. 1/10 update: Cupid is not thriving in the shelter environment and has begun growling when approached. This behavior appears to be limited to inside the kennel, but due to Cupid’s stress level we recommend placement into a stable home environment as quickly as possible.
