05/02/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I heart Heart. Every time I passed his, kennel he was up front looking at me with his big doe eyes. Could I resist? Of course not! He’s thin, and even though it’s Spring, it’s a bit chilly, so a t-shirt adds a small layer of warmth. He’s good on leash, and despite his thin frame, didn’t want either of my treats. After going potty and a short walk, we head out back to enjoy some off leash time. Heart enjoys sniffing out all the enticing scents and then coming over to me for a butt scratch and some cuddles. When another dog enters the adjoining pen, it’s obvious Heart would love to meet him, whining in happy pleasure as his little stub of a tail wags gently. We cuddle again, Heart closing his eyes as I caress his cheek, and I promise him that soon he’ll have a home where good nutritious food and lots of love is in endless supply. Is your heart big enough for Heart? A volunteer updates: I often see my boyfriend, Heart, out with other volunteers, spry on leash, happy for a chance to go potty and enjoy the spring air. As we walk this morning, he does a few bunny hops, wags his tail in greeting to all the other early morning dogs in the park, enjoys a snack with me, and poses for more pictures. He’s such a gem, a go-with-the-flow kind of a guy, a senior who’s ready to be your wingman forever. And, if this defines ‘senior’, I’m good with that. He enjoys his daily playgroups, greeting politely, sometimes playing and other times just enjoying some alone time in the company of others. Up and down the stairs to the second floor like a young steed, Heart sets a good example for us all. Let’s get this fabulous dog into his retirement home, a soft bed, good meals, nice walks and some kisses.
04/23/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 4/21/17 Neutered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/23/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Heart displayed no concerning behaviors on his assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: Heart interacts politely with other calm dogs and occasionally engages in gentle play when solicited. The behavior department recommends slow introductions to respectful dogs, as he may be uncomfortable with those who are more rough or exuberant in play. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/21/17 During his initial medical exam, Heart was tense and growled when restrained. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Heart so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium-low level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
