06/04/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Harry might be old and overweight, but this guy sure knows how to sweep a gal off her feet! His face is full of character and his heart is full of warmth. He was quite weak when he arrived, but I found him sitting at the front of his cage, eager to go out. He seems housetrained and didn’t show any concerning behavior towards the dog in the pen adjacent to us. My love for Harry might be matched by his love for treats! Giving him one is all that’s needed to get his undivided attention. He “sit”s like a champ and does some serious drooling (it’s adorable) as he waits for them. He likes to be pet, makes soft eye contact, and when I sat down on the ground he wasted no time crawling into my lap. I’m completely smitten with Harry and I think you will be too…come meet him at Brooklyn ACC!
06/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper dog: A1075531 Harry came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Harry was quiet and mellow, he allowed all handling. During SAFER Harry came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was friendly and affectionate towards the assessor. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Harry was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Harry was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Harry appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors 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 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: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
