06/30/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Handsome Fifty was making eyes at me from his kennel, and who am I to ignore a handsome fellow trying to get my attention? He’s a gorgeous dog in a dark blonde, well-groomed coat, his weight perfect for his size, and while he’s a bit shy at first, we became friends quickly. Fifty joined us when his owner lost their home, so is understandably a bit unsettled and trying to make the best of it. He comes when called, seems to be housetrained, joined me on the bench when I invited him up (yes, he waited for the invitation), never stops wagging his tail, and wagged his way over to meet a staff person when she joined us in the pen. Fifty and I played a little bit but it was too sticky humid for any serious play, so we settled for a quick bit of activity and then some petting. With a tail that beats like a metronome, Fifty happily makes new friends and waits patiently for his new home. Let’s not let him wait too long.

The behavior department recommends slow, supervised introductions between Fifty and polite dogs. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/20/17 During his initial medical examination, Fifty allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Fifty so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) Potential challenges: _X_Anxiety: Fifty has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, barking) at times during walks with caretakers; it is likely due to the nature of the shelter environment. We cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment though recommend practicing positive force-free reward based training when introducing or exposing Fifty to new and unfamiliar situations.
