A volunteer writes: Clearly fed with love, Golda joined us along with her friend Barbie (1083282) when their person passed away. A chunky mama, Rubenesque, she’s an absolute joy to spend time with…..a big hunk of gentle love! Great on leash wagging her tail softly as we walk she looks up at everyone we pass perhaps hoping one of them will
be her former person. I hug her close and promise her we’ll find her a new family to love. We took some pictures in the park but Golda is a bit camera shy and my pictures don’t do her justice. Instead, she’d rather sit at my feet, leaning into my legs as I take some notes, reaching up for a quick kiss, and together we watch people and other dogs in the park. She’s so calm and easy, I see her curled up on your couch keeping you company as you and she together watch your favorite TV show. Good food, a soft bed, easy walks, she’s an absolute gem who deserves her happily ever after to start with you today. Don’t miss the chance to spend time with her when you visit.
Golda had a wagging tail and relaxed body. She gave kisses and allowed me to pet her, collar her and restrain her. She showed no signs of aggression.
Golda came in along with another similarly sized dog citing moving issues. Golda appears to be distressed when separated from Barbie, will pace back and forth, whimper, and high pitched howl. Golda allowed all handling during her initial medical exam. She pulled a bit on leash for her relief walk, was friendly and sociable upon entering SAFER assessment room. Golda held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, tail wagging. She sat down and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, open mouth, relaxed. Golda followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, became playful mid game, settled easily at end. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Golda showed minimal interest in Toy, spurts of enthusiasm but quickly lost interest. She approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, not stiff. The Behavior Team feels Golda would do well with an Average adopter. She may benefit from the company of another resident dog, but recommend an in depth interaction before considering adoption.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture, open mouth.
Tag: 1. Dog initially follows, then assumes play position and joins the game, settles easily
Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed
Toy 1. Minimal interest. Brief spurts of enthuisiasm, quickly loses interest.
Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral
8/1- When off leash with other dogs Golda sniffed the greeter dog once; but she seemed uncomfortable when the other dog sniffed her. Golda mostly was seeking the handlers’ attention.
