07/18/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: His smiling face and wagging tail are an invitation to a fun boy!! Ready to be out for a walk to show off his housetraining skills, Mr. Dover pulls a bit on the leash at first, but after all business is taken care of, he settles into a nice pace. His coat is lush, his markings gorgeous, and his tail never stops wagging. Dover may not be used to city ‘stuff’, as he stops to check out some strange and mysterious things, like an exhaust pipe in the sidewalk, a building vent at street level — it’s so cute to watch him puzzle these things out. Once satisfied with whatever he’s determined, we move on, Dover smiling and wagging his tail again. In the park, he loves watching other dogs pass, and in his playgroups with females (he has not been introduced to males as of this writing) he ignores solicitations to play. Dover is lively and social, ready to find his new active family with whom to enjoy nice walks and playtime. Come meet him today.
07/17/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 7/15/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 7/17/17 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 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: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. 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: Dover displayed no concerning behaviors on his assessment. PLAYGROUP: Dover has displayed high amounts of interest in socializing with other dogs in the care center. However, most of Dover’s interaction with other dogs have been persistent attempts at mounting, and is difficult to interrupt. Behavior history around dogs is unknown due to arriving as a stray. The behavior department recommends allowing Dover a period of decompression before immediate introduction to dogs. Future introductions should be conducted at a slow pace to highly tolerant, well socialized dogs. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Dover was active, social, and allowed handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/15/17 During his initial medical exam, Dover was active but allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Dover so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) Potential challenges: _X_Strength/leash pulling: Dover is a 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, and that he be trained using positive reinforcement, reward based training to not pull on leash.

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Dover has displayed high amounts of interest in socializing with other dogs in the care center. However, most of Dover’s interaction with other dogs have been persistent attempts at mounting, and is difficult to interrupt. Behavior history around dogs is unknown due to arriving as a stray. The behavior department recommends allowing Dover a period of decompression before immediate introduction to dogs. Future introductions should be conducted at a slow pace to highly tolerant dogs, or well socialized dogs that will be able to help Dover learn appropriate social skills. 7/16: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Dover rushes in playfully, then persistently attempts to mount once he catches up to the greeter. 7/17: Dover is placed into a group of playful female dogs. Dover ignores play solicitation and attempts to mount both dogs.
