11/08/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I am told there are dogs out there who don’t hate being bathed because I see their videos on social media, but I’ve always been convinced they were photoshopped. Then I met Jolene, a dog so eager for affection that as a friend gave her a sponge bath, she leaned into her leg and closed her eyes, relishing the warmth of her new friend’s touch, water be damned. Jolene, who appears house trained, had been in her kennel for a while, and she bounced out so eager to engage, play, and have close snuggle time with the humans around her. Her walking log notes say she is a “friendly, happy dog,” and that sums her up precisely and perfectly. We were stunned to see that the shelter estimates her to be 8 years old because there’s nothing “mature” about her, other than her dearness with people. She has participated in playgroup with other dogs, and she has charmed us by participating in our own ad hoc human playgroup, one that involved snuggles, love, and kisses, for which she shows the utmost and heartbreaking gratitude. Jolene is a dear girl ready for any adventure, whether you be a landlubber or water lover, as long as love is involved.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/6/2016 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted, lip lick Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, ears back, tail wagging Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, unresponsive to each pass Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed or back. Toy 3. Dog takes away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is a bit stiff. Summary: Jolene may require positive behavior modification to address any potential guarding issues that may present themselves in a home environment. Jolene displayed no concern during handling portions of the assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Selective: These dogs can succeed with certain other dogs, but may be more selective or picky. They may dislike certain ‘types’ of dogs or styles of dog play so they may require extra supervision when interacting with other dogs. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with a neutered male Jolene is tense. She briefly greets then, once solicited with running play, she will chase after the helper dog growling (as a correction, not offensive behaviors). MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/4/2016 During her initial medical examination, Jolene readily allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience _X_No young children (under 5)(See potential challenges) Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding (We cannot be certain whether any guarding or possessive behavior may appear in a home environment, but we recommend adopters comfortable with safe management and modification of guarding behavior in case it does.)
11/05/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Jolene has been assertive and tense, offercing correction for playful behavior. Due to arriving as a stray, previous history around dogs is unknown. Based on observation made on Jolene while in our care, the behavior department feels that Jolene may potentially be considered into a home with calmer, non-playful dogs pending slow, positive introductions at Jolene’s pace. 11/5: When off leash with a neutered male Jolene is tense. She briefly greets then, once solicited with running play, she will chase after the helper dog growling (as a correction, not offensive behaviors). 11/8, 11/9: Jolene is tense, assertive and offers correction for ongoing play in the pen. She vocalizaes and runs after the other dogs. She ignores calm dogs.
