11/11/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Is “Joelle” French for beautiful, sweet, fun little Holstein cow?! Okay, so it turns out it’s no where close…but this lady is just that! She has kind eyes and looks like she has too much skin around her neck and face, which makes for the most darling rolls and droops. She is very easy to handle on leash and people even yell from across the street to tell her how cute she is (she IS!). Joelle seems housebroken, is very friendly and waggy, and LOVES treats. She’s been very well-mannered with me and manages to be mushy while maintaining a cool, calm, confidence about her. When I put her back in her cage she goes to work making her bed, licks my hands, and then curls up on her bed. Please come meet sweet Joelle at Brooklyn ACC and make her your beautiful, sweet, fun little Holstein cow!
11/02/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/02/16 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she 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, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (need coaxing to approach.) She is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog smells, then turns away. Summary: Joelle displayed no concerns during her behavior assessment. PLAYGROUP: Joelle was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Joelle initially displays assertive posturing, mounting both male and female dogs. She is able to listen to handler interruptions and explore the pen. She occasionally checks in on the other dogs and is tolerant of face to face greetings and play solicitations. The Behavior Department believes that Joelle would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home, however a dog-dog interaction can be conducted with a potential adopter’s dog to make sure they are tolerant of Joelle’s mounting behavior. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/02/16 During her initial medical examination, Joelle readily allows all handling without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: Joelle displays a medium activity level in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
