06/29/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: If it’s laughter you’re after, you’ve got to meet Jasper! At 4 years-old Jasper is the perfect age, and speaking of perfect — did you see those eyes? Of course, how could you miss them? As bright and as warm as the summer sun, one look into Jasper’s amber peepers will have you melting more than an ice cream cone in June. And speaking of! Jasper’s delicious vanilla coat is soft and lovely, marred only by some scuffs here and there which Jasper had on arrival. Jasper was found in a city park. How sad to think of this happy, once-family boy left to watch other families and their pups pass by living the life he used to know. But to look at Jasper is not to see any trace of sadness. He is all smiles and light, joy and excitement, delighting in life’s smallest pleasures. Like a cool blast of water on a hot summer’s day! Yes, Jasper gets us both smiling after our walk, when we retire to a pen and I turn on the hose. He leaps and jumps at the water, splashing and drinking all in the same breath, and snorts like a happy pig. Jasper does pull a bit on leash so would enjoy a brush-up on his manners, though sitting for treats is something our amber-eyed boy has down. Jasper is looking to enjoy more of life’s simple pleasures. For just some cool water on a warm summer’s day and a walk in the park with his family. I hope every dream of his comes true. Jasper is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
06/29/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 6/27/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/29/17 Summary: During an interaction in playgroup, Jasper froze and lip curled at the handler when he was being interrupted for growling at another dog. He continued to lip curl at and pursue the handler after this and a second handler was needed to take him out of the pen. Due to this extreme reaction to being interrupted, we feel that out of safety concerns a handling assessment should not be performed at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 06/28: Jasper displays a tense body and high tail when sniffing the female greeter dog through the fence. His posture softens a bit, and he offers a brief wag. When introduced off leash. Jasper approaches and sniffs, body a bit stiff. When the female greeter dog walks around to sniff, Jasper growls and lunges forward. When the handler attempts to interrupt, Jasper freezes, then lip curls at the handler. Jasper attempts to walk toward the female greeter once more while growling. When the handler attempts to separate, Jasper lip curls once more. A second handler is required to remove Jasper from the yard. At this time, the behavior department advises against placing Jasper into a home with other dogs. INTAKE BEHAVIOR Upon intake, Jasper had a loose body and allowed handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/27/17 During his initial medical exam, Jasper was social and active. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Jasper so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young 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 exrcise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to the extreme reaction displayed by Jasper when interrupted while playing with another dog, we recommend an adult only home _X_Single-pet home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to the observed concerning behaviors in the care center, and lack of history, the behavior department strongly advises against placing Jasper with other dogs at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to concerning behavior displayed towards the handler while interacting with another dog, the behavior department recommends Jasper be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. Force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Jasper to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Jasper presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Social hyper-arousal: Jasper has displayed a low threshold for arousal, rapidly escalating and quickly tipping over to aggression, lip curing and pursuing the handler when he is interrupted. Immediate intervention and consultation with a qualified veterinary behaviorist/professional trainer is strongly recommended to aid in addressing this issue to prevent further behavioral concerns that may appear in the future if not treated right away. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Jasper to new and unfamiliar situations.
