07/30/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Jake A1119071 is being placed at risk for his kennel reactivity when other dogs pass by him and he has displayed concerning behavior toward other dogs while off leash in playgroup. These behaviors are unlikely to resolve in this environment, and in order to decrease its rehearsal along with minimizing his stress and frustration, we believe he should leave a kennel setting.

07/19/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/19/17 18:01 Basic: Jake is a 2 year old altered medium breed dog that was gifted to the owner when he was a few months old. The owner is surrendering because her landlord does not allow pets and he just found out about Jake. The last time Jake was at the vet was earlier this year when he went to get neutered. Jake does not have any medical issues that the owner knows about. Socialization: Around strangers, Jake is described as very curious and friendly. Jake has lived with children of the ages 2, 6, 11, and 14. Around the children, Jake would sometimes play rough because he did not realize his strength. Around adults, Jake can also play somewhat rough. Jake has spent time with another medium breed dog and he was respectful and played very well him. Jake has lived with a cat and he has kept his space from her. Jake has never bitten or scratched another animal or a person. Behavior: During storms or fireworks, Jake is not bothered. Jake is not bothered when his food is touched or when treats and toys are taken away from him. Jake loves being given a bath. The owner has never attempted to trim Jake’s nails. When someone rings the doorbell, Jake barks. For a New Family to Know: jake is described as playful and excitable. Jake has a moderate activity level and his favorite thing to do is run. The owner’s favorite thing about Jake is that he is a gentle giant. When the owner is home, Jake will initially greet her but then he likes to stay in his bed. Jake likes to play with bones and he loves to play fetch and tug. Jake is fed dry food of an unknown variety, 1 cup once a day. Jake is wee-wee pad trained and when he goes out, he likes to use the grass. Jake knows how to sit. For exercise, Jake is taken out on brisk walks on a leash but the owner has never attempted to remove his leash. Upon intake, Jake was very playful and excited but allowed being collared, having his picture taken, and all other handling with a loose body.

A volunteer writes: Jake is everything a happy young dude should be, curious, sociable and ready to take on the world with a big smile and an even bigger heart. He may have grown up right here in the Big Apple, but he has the soul of a country boy. Nothing sets his tail wagging like time spent outdoors and running, jumping and playing with his people. Reluctantly surrendered to our care from the only home he’d known since puppyhood, we’re told Jake’s spent time with kids of all ages, lived and played well with a same-size doggie friend, and even respectfully avoided the cat! Jake pulls hard on leash but knows how to come and sit, loves the water and enjoys lounging on a lap. In his enthusiasm, he can be a bit rough at times, so lots of toys (he adores fetch and tug) and plenty of exercise will keep everyone at home as happy as he is. At the Care Center, Jake greets other dogs politely when walking or through the fence, but off-leash, he still needs some work and definitely isn’t ready for the dog park just yet. Training, training, training is the key with any youngster, but especially when that youngster is as friendly and smart as Jake. Learning polite how-do-you-do manners is going to make his goal of turning any stranger into an instant BFF that much easier. Already neutered and ready to go go go, he can’t wait to start enjoying the summer sunshine (and maybe even take a swim) with his active new family.

SAFER ASSESSMENT: 7/20/17 Look: 1. Dog leans forward with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, panting, rolls around on back, mouths hand. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Jake displayed a high level of activity and movement on his assessment, jumping up and rolling onto his back. He was social throughout and allowed all handling. PLAYGROUP: The previous owner of Jake describes him as having been “respectful and playful” around the dog he lived with. In the care center, Jake has displayed concerning behavior during his dog-dog assessment, rushing in, growling, and snapping at the female helper dog. At this time, the behavior department recommends a single dog household for Jake until his behavior can be followed up on outside of the shelter environment. Follow up on his behavior around dogs should be conducted using positive, force free methods. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake Jake had a loose body MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/19/17 During his initial medical exam Jake was tense ENERGY LEVEL: Jake’s previous owner described him as having a moderate level of activity. He is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: In the shelter Jake has been highly social with all human handlers and engages in play with toys as well. Jake has been reactive towards dogs while in his kennel (barking when they pass), but does not display this behavior on leash. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to the jumpy and mouthy behavior displayed at the care center, as well as Jake’s previous owner stating that he played too rough for the young children in the home, we recommend a home without young children. Older children who are comfortable around large, jumpy dogs should have an in-depth interaction prior to adoption. 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 any frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended. _X_Mouthiness/Poor bite inhibition: Jake has shown some mouthiness in the care center. Little pressure is applied, but this is a behavior that should be extinguished through training alternate behaviors and lack of reward (ex. walking away whenever Jake’s teeth make contact with skin).
07/20/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
The previous owner of Jake describes him as having been “respectful and playful” around the dog he lived with. In the care center, Jake has displayed concerning behavior during his dog-dog assessment, rushing in, growling, and snapping at the female helper dog. At this time, the behavior department recommends a single dog household for Jake until his behavior can be followed up on outside of the shelter environment. Follow up on his behavior around dogs should be conducted using positive, force free methods. 7/20: Jake displays a neutral body and brief wag when greeting the female greeter dog. When introduced off leash, Jake rushes into the pen while growling and attempting to jump on top of the greeter dog. Several handler interruptions are required to safely remove Jake from the interaction. 7/22: Jake is muzzled for his second interaction. When introduced off leash to a female dog, Jake greets with tense body and flagging tail. He loosens throughout the interaction and ignores the other dog, but is distracted by the muzzle.
