01/07/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
01/07/16 14:14 Good boy is an 5 year old white and black male american pitbull terrier who is being surrendered because the owner can no longer care for him. Good boy has been with the family for 4 years. Good boy lives with 3 adults and 2 small children. Good boy also lived with 2 other american pitbull terriers and they were all exuberant and playful with one another. All the dogs in the home are also very respectful of the children and do not overwhelm them. When visitors come to the home they will greet them and can be very exuberant for this. Good boy is house broken and gets her exercise from leash walks. Owner reports Good boy can be insistent on leash and may pull if he sees a cat and will seek introductions from other dogs he encounters. Good boy will struggle for a bath. Good boy does not get his nails trimmed. Good boy does not guard his food but if you take it while he is eating he will eat faster and may try to block it with his body. He does not guard his toys or treats. Good boy tolerates a bear hug for handling. If on the bed or couch he is easily removed. Loud sharp noises do not startle him. Good boy enjoys playing chasing game with a ball but will not retrieve and enjoys being destructive with it and does not swallow the material. When the family is home he likes to be where they are and when home alone he can be destructive towards furniture. Good boy eats wet food. Upon intake Good boy was exuberant for introduction and loose for all handling. Counselor was able to scan for microchip (negative) collar and photograph. Good boy walked well on leash and was responsive guidance. Baby allowed all petting.
01/18/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Good Boy? More like GREAT Boy! He might make some unconventional calls for attention from his cage, but walk away from them and you’ll miss out on a good time! Good Boy is goofy, playful, fun and super sweet. He seems to do pretty much everything with enthusiasm, but once he’s relieved himself outside (he seems very housebroken) he’s not bad at all on leash. He previously lived harmoniously with two other dogs and is said to do well with children. He absolutely LOVES toys and is a star at relay-fetch (that’s where as soon as he gets the ball, I throw another before he can tear up the first!). He is friendly to everyone he meets, has the jowly smile of a cartoon and gives kisses generously. He can’t wait to find a new home and maybe even a real name. But even if he does, I’m sure he’ll still hear the familiar one all the time…he’s such a Good Boy! Please come meet him at Brooklyn ACC!
01/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper dog A1061862 Good Boy previously lived with 3 adults, 2 small children and 2 other dogs. The owner stated Good Boy was playful and respectful towards the other dogs and children. The owner mentioned Good Boy is house broken and when home alone he can be destructive towards furniture. It was reported by the owner Good Boy does not guard his food but if you take it while he is eating he will eat faster and block it with his body. At intake it was reported Good Boy was friendly and loose for all handling. During SAFER Good Boy came into the assessment room with high energy, he was friendly, social and playful towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Good Boy was distracted but not fearful during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Good Boy was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Good Boy appears to be a high-energy dog and was reported to chew on furniture when left home alone for long periods of time. For this reason he will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. Appropriate chew toys should also be left in the home when Good Boy is alone like nyla bones and kongs to prevent him from chewing on furniture. The behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experienced adopter at this time. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. 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 likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2:2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral.
