12/07/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/07/16 09:53 Henry is a young adult male APBT mix. He was found outside. His finder (a young adult man) cared for him overnight. He reports that he was friendly with him and women and children that he met, but that he barked at his father. Henry pulled towards other dogs outside with a loose body and wagging tail. He was well-behaved inside and only pottied outside. He spent with his finder, hugging him with his arms and cuddled closely to him. Henry had a soft body while I pet him, scanned him (-), collared him, and photographed him. He stood up into his finder’s lap and leaned closely into him while he pet him. After his finder left he whined often and loudly. He sometimes jumped up and leaned against us while we pet him. He was tense but didn’t resist or vocalize while I held him for vaccines.
12/10/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I love the two meanings of the name ‘Henry’…one is “ruler of the home”, and the Urban Dictionary states that Henry is used to describe someone who is “incredibly attractive”. Our Henry certainly is that. Long elegant legs, sleek sexy physique, soft crystal eyes and a beautiful brindle coat. Going potty was a priority once outside and when business was done we’re off to the park, Henry sniffing the enticing scents as we go and showing off lovely leash manners. He allowed me to put a coat on him against the steep chill, and looked rather smashing I might add. He’s made for modeling! Getting excited when he sees other dogs we pass, in his first playgroup he was “super bouncy with female dogs”. Henry is alert and curious, investigating everything going on outside our pen. Henry did something SO adorable that I need to share. I hang up my leash on the door when we’re inside the pen and twice he pulled it down and just stood at the door. I can’t help but wonder if that was the way he told his former people that he wanted to go out. SO cute, and so smart. Henry wags his tail when I pet him, doesn’t solicit affection as of this writing but is happy to receive it. When our time was over he hopped right back into his kennel and I told him that a new person or family would come meet him soon. Anyone who loves dogs as much as I do knows that ‘dogs rule’, so we’re hoping that Henry will soon be living up to the original definition of his name.
12/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray Other notes: Upon intake Henry had a soft body and allowed handling SAFER ASSESSMENT: Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She 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, closed mouth. Tag: 3. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Dog jumps up very high and hard. 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: Henry appeared very anxious throughout his assessment; he whined loudly throughout most of it and jumped up repeatedly. Henry may benefit from daily physical exercise, such as runs, walks, and play, and mental stimulation, such as kongs and puzzle toys. 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: Henry is playful and interested in interaction with female dogs. At times, Henry has attempted to mount female dogs, though it can be taken into consideration that Henry is still unaltered at this time. The behavior department feels that Henry may potentially be placed into a home with a social, female dog pending slow introductions. Henry is uncomfortable interacting with male dogs in the care center, and it is advised against placing him into a home with them at this time. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/7/16 During his initial medical exam Henry allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) _X_No young children (under 5)(Due to the level of aniexty displayed in the care centers, we cannot be certain if any behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment; for these reasons, we advise against a home with young children at this time.) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control (It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended.)
