07/27/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I love any dog that howls, and Jackson is no exception. He has some skin issues, but is still as cute as can be! He was a little nervous when we first met, but warmed up quickly and proved to be very sweet. He might pull a little on leash, but often looks up at me and sometimes times it so that his mouth can meet my hand, and he sneaks in a kiss! He seems housebroken, and hasn’t been reactive when we’ve passed other dogs. He might have a refined palette, but when I have treats that are to his liking, he takes them very nicely. He likes to play fetch and uses his paws a lot to dribble the ball around — adorable! His skin is likely uncomfortable so he can be a little sensitive to touch in some spots, but still seeks out petting, rests his head in my lap, wiggles his tail, and always makes soft eye contact. He is so, so sweet that it’s hard to put him back. And when I do…there it is…that heart-melting howl!! We hope soon Jackson will be howling from the comfort of a couch…please come see him at Brooklyn ACC!
07/22/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jackson came into the shelter on 7/21/16 as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Behavior during Intake: Jackson was relaxed and allowed all handling. During SAFER Jackson came into the assessment room calm and relaxed. Jackson was social and readily approached the assessor; though he could be a bit difficult to coax into position and was uncomfortable with sudden movements during Tag. Jackson showed a fairly low threshold for frustration but seems to have developed good coping skills and he redirects his frustration onto biting at the leash. He allowed the three tags to be done but was focused on the Assessor and frequently returned to biting the leash. He was interactive between tags and allowed touch and petting. Despite his discomfort with some of the handling, Jackson showed good coping skills. Therefore we recommend experienced adopters who will notice that discomfort and move Jackson out of the situation, and will limit frustrating stimuli. Jackson may benefit from some reward-based training to learn confidence in new situations. We also recommend a home without children. Due to some concerns the behavior department feels Jackson will be suitable in a home with an “Experienced” adopter with (No Children). 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 closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag:2 follows with a soft body; dog was fixated on the leash. Squeeze 1: 1 Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-Dog:Jackson greets the other dog displaying soft body language. He is social, checking in with the other dog often, as he explores the pen. He is tolerant of the other dog’s play solicitations.
07/22/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Jackson was surrendered as a stray so his previous history with other dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Jackson displays soft body language when interacting with a female dog. He becomes assertive around males displaying stiff body language and attempting to mount them. The Behavior Department recommends that Jackson be placed in a home with a female dog that matches his calm energy level. 7/22: Jackson greets the other dog displaying soft body language. He is social, checking in with the other dog often, as he explores the pen. He is tolerant of the other dog’s play solicitations. 7/23: Jackson was introduced to a male dog today. He initially greets the other male dog displaying soft body language but becomes increasingly stiff as the session continues. He begins to status seek with the other male dog, placing his head on the other dog’s back and attempting to mount. The session is ended. 7/25: Jackson is polite and respectful around a several nervous females. He does approach but is able to read their body language, increasing distance when they become tense.
