04/30/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Shy yet friendly, our EUREKA moment came relatively quickly. Easily leashed and happy to go outside to use the “facilities”, she pulls on her leash, so we head into the yard for some off leash getting-to-know-you-time. After briefly exploring the pen, Janey came to sit by my feet as I took some notes. She has a boo boo on her head which is healing, she’s alert, curious and is like the oh-so-very-shy girl in school who wants to be friends but isn’t quite sure how her overtures will be received. Janey and I sat and chatted, and when a staff person joined us in the pen, Janey made friends with her as well. Janey wags her tail gently at dogs in adjoining pens, but her happy place is sitting between my legs letting me pet her, and eventually giving me a big smile and a kiss. She eventually lies down between a staff person’s legs, then comes up on the bench, and then crawls onto her lap. That’s the EUREKA moment! Building confidence and comfort slowly, it’s clear that Janey is ready to find true love, and needs to do it on her own timetable. It’s worth every second of effort as this little girl has been a mom many times over, and is ready to learn what it means to be loved for herself alone. It’s so easy to love her, we all do already…we’re rooting for her to meet her new person quickly, so ask to meet her today.
A volunteer updates: Less shy, learning we’re friends, Janey is welcoming in her kennel, ready to come for a walk to go potty. When she sees people she knows her tail wags happily, greeting that person like its been ages since last seen instead of simply the day before. After a short walk on the street we go into the yard where Janey joins me on the bench immediately and sits close. As shy with new dogs as she is with new people, she nevertheless allows all overtures of friendship. With love, patience, and more love Janey will blossom into an affectionate, lovely companion. We’re rooting for her to have that chance.Come meet Janey today.
04/20/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Janey came into our center after a member of the public found her as a stray. She was alert and nervous during intake and initial medical exam, tail tucked, but allowed all handling. Janey entered SAFER assessment room with tail tucked, but approached and lay head on assessor’s lap with gentle coaxing. She allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, eyes averted, a bit tense. Janey leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, mouth closed, tail remaining tucked. She followed at the end of the leash slowly for Tag game, uncomfortable, body a bit low. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Janey showed minimal interest in Toy, sniffing a few times, then backing away fearfully at approaching assess-a-hand. When off leash with other dogs, Janey ignores greeting and sits in one spot, keeping mostly to herself, one approaching to sniff helper dog. After the assessment, Janey approached slowly and lay at assessor’s feet. The Behavior Team feels Janey would do best with an Experienced adopter who does not have young children. She would do best with a slow approach/slow introduction, possibly with treats. Janey would initially benefit from going home to a calm, quiet, structured environment so she can relax and know what to expect. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body is tense, tail tucked. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, mouth closed Tag: 2. Dog follows at end of leash slowly, body low. Squeeze 1 / 2: 2. Dog does not pull paw back, tail tucked Toy 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, fearful of assess-a-hand Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Janey ignores greeting and sits in one spot, keeping mostly to herself, one approaching to sniff helper dog.
