07/24/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Everyone is swooning over Gage! This bunny-eared boy with the plush coat and one-of-a-kind smile arrived as a stray, but it’s clear he’s been well cared for. He seems housebroken, is very treat motivated, and already knows “sit” and “paw.” He LOVES playing with toys and will either let me take them from him to throw again, or carry them around like a prize, occasionally tossing them for himself only to pounce on them a moment later. He also loves love! Gage is very affectionate and has enough kisses to give out for everyone, but I’m sure he has an extra special reserve for his family…please come see if that might be you!
07/13/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Gage was brought into the shelter as a stray, so his past behaviors are unknown. During SAFER Gage had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Gage was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Gage was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Gage appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1.
