01/02/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Is it shallow of me to say that I fell in love with Jermaine based on just his looks? It is hard not to swoon over his youthful glow, his muscular body, sweet puppy face and bushy tail that anchors his tall legs! He is STUNNING!! His paws might be a little too big for his body, though, giving him a puppy-like gait that’s quite laughable. And he truly is ALL puppy! He LOVES toys, and after waiting most of the afternoon for me to take him out, he did a celebratory zoomie, toy in his mouth, prancing in circles around the yard. He will play a little fetch, or tug but is generally content with just shaking his toy in his mouth, showing it off to passersby and frolicking around with it. Though Jermaine was found as a stray, his finder said that he spent time with his small children with no issues. Jermaine pulls on the leash, but does seem housetrained and eager to relieve himself. Jermaine doesn’t like being returned to his kennel, but I can’t blame him-a young energetic pup deserves tons of play time, more training and lots of love. While I may have initially fallen in love with him for his appearance, it’s clear that beauty is more than skin-deep with Jermaine! Ask to meet him today!

Summary: Jermaine was friendly and very playful towards the assessor, he displayed no behavioral concerns. PLAYGROUP: Jermaine was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Jermaine is slightly nervous but is able to engage in high energy play with male and female dogs. He may mount a female dog but is able to listen to handler interruptions and continues to engage in play. The Behavior Department recommends that Jermaine be placed in a home with a resident dog that matches his play style. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/20/16: During his medical examination, Jermaine was friendly and social, he allowed all handling. IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: 1/13/14 Recently Jermaine has begun to become difficult to place back into his kennel. When a handler attempts to place him back into his kennel, he mounts the handler and mouths at their clothing, tearing it on several occasions. The Behavior Department believes that due to the stressful nature of the shelter environment, Jermaine’s behavior has begun to deteriorate. At this time, The Behavior Department does not feel that he is a suitable candidate for the adoptions room any longer due to the deleterious affect it is having on his welfare and recommend that placement be sought as soon as possible. ENERGY LEVEL: High RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced dog owner 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.) _x_Mouthiness/Poor bite inhibition (See IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR)
