Jigga A1040720 is an approximately 2 year old Patterdale Terrier Mix. He is being surrendered to the shelter because he was found running loose as a stray. Finder took Jigga into his home until he was able to bring him to ACCNYC.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE
Jigga allowed all handling, collaring and photos.
KNOWN HISTORY: None
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture, mouth closed
Tag: 3. Dog stands his ground while not cornered and barks at the Assessor with ears forward, mouth closed, approaches assessor when game ends.
Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back paw
Squeeze 2: 4. Dog low growls, pulls back paw
Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, licks, and mouths, then turns away.
Summary: Jigga barked and growled in his kennel but softened once leashed and in the assessment room, sitting close to assessor and allowing petting. He became uncomfortable during Tag game, barking towards assessor, but approached immediately at end of item and again allowed handling. Jigga may do best initially with a calm, quiet, structured environment so he can relax and warm up at his own pace.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Jigga does not engage in play and is social but is timid when engaged by pushy dogs. He is tolerant and explores the yard.
Jigga was alert during his initial medical exam, initially friendly but growled at times.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home
_X_No children (under 13): Due to Jigga’s discomfort with certain types of handling and the warning signals he has given, we recommend an adult-only home for Jigga.
_X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression
