08/10/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: The first thing you think of when you hear the name Hanson might be MMMBop, but that’s all about to change: it’s time to associate it with the coolest, most charismatic little brindle guy ever! Hanson comes to us due to no fault of his own and seems like he was well cared for. He has occasional bursts of pulling on the leash, big eyes like a little kid, and seems housebroken. He comes with tricks already up his sleeve including “sit,” “paw,” and “down.” He isn’t shy about telling you that he’s earned a treat, so hopefully you’re more organized than I am! “Down” often turns into a belly rub because why not? Hanson’s love for treats is matched by his love for toys: he is a fetching machine! He’s super wiggly, playful and affectionate, knows no stranger, and is a blast to be with. So get that song out of your head and get Hanson into your heart and home! He’d love to meet you at Brooklyn ACC.
09/03/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
9/3 update: Hanson has begun to deteriorate during his stay at the care center. He has shown increased arousal when attempting to remove him from his kennel–he will jump up, grab onto the leash and beging thrashing back and forth; he is not able to be distracted and remains aroused after he is placed back into his kennel. While Hanson remains social outside of his kennel and appropriate for an average adopter, it is in his best interest to leave the care center as quickly as possible so as to not further rehearse these behaviors. 8/3 SAFER: Hanson came into the shelter as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Behavior upon Intake: Hanson was relaxed and allowed all handling. During SAFER Hanson came into the assessment room friendly and calm he had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Hanson was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. He was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Hanson 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. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, mouths the leash no pressure. Quickly de-escalates. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently 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:When off leash with female dogs at the Care Center, Hanson greets displaying loose and wiggly body language. He is sexually motivated, attempting to mount the female dog, and persists after handler interruptions. He is eventually able to wander in the pen displaying bouncy body language.
08/02/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Hanson was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Hanson displays loose and wiggly body language and is sexually motivated. He mounts the female dog and listens to her corrections momentarily but resumes attempting to mount. Hanson became reactive when interacting with another male dog. He leapt onto the other dogs back, head-whipping and biting at his back, neck and cheek region. The handlers attempted to interrupt the scuffle with water bottles, pet correctors, citronella spray and then finally the air horn allowed us the opportunity to safely separate Hanson from the other male’s back. Hanson delivered minor scratches, abrasions and one puncture wound to the helper dog. The Behavior Department recommends that Hanson only be placed with female dogs that are tolerant and comfortable with his sexually motivated behavior. 8/2: Hanson greets the other dog displaying loose and wiggly body language. He is sexually motivated, attempting to mount the female dog, and persists after handler interruptions. He is eventually able to wander in the pen displaying bouncy body language. 8/6: Hanson displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting the female dog. He is sexually motivated, immediately attempting to mount the female dog. He listens to her corrections momentarily but resumes attempting to mount. 8/16: Hanson was stiff, but his posture was not that concerning when he greeted another male at the gate. Once Hanson entered, he sniffed the male greeter’s genital region, stiffened up further, backed up and gave him a chin-over. Before the handlers could end the session due to Hanson’s body language, within a half-second, he leapt onto the other dogs back, head-whipping and biting at his back, neck and cheek region. The handlers attempted to interrupt the scuffle with water bottles, pet correctors, citronella spray and then finally the air horn allowed us the opportunity to safely separate Hanson from the other male’s back. Hanson delivered minor scratches, abrasions and one puncture wound to the helper dog.
