01/12/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Josie won my modeling award of the day. She made it so easy to take photos. Besides the fact that she is so beautiful and has the most expressive face, she sits when needed, and even stands still so I can snap a photo. She’s perfect and 8,000 photos later…………. Josie joined us when her person lost her home and she’s doing the best job she can at figuring it all out. She’s shyly submissive and tail waggy, ready to make friends, and so ready to go outside to go potty. Good girl, Josie! She’s a bit too thin in my opinion, and her soft amber eyes, like gemstones, look into mine as we become friends. Sitting before being asked when she knows a treat is coming shows off how smart she is, and as I moved about the pen she kept coming to sit in front of me. Seriously – is she smart or what? She never begs, just sits there looking sweet and innocent (and gorgeous), so how could I refuse her a treat? She loves to be pet, laying her head in my lap and closing her eyes giving into the moment. Josie chases after a plush toy, gets a short spurt of the zoomies and comes back for more petting. An absolute delight Josie won my heart in no time as she will win yours. Come meet her today.
01/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Josie came to us as a stray on 1/09/16. She was very interested in interacting with the assessor when entering the behavior room with loose body language. She allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining soft body language. She played softy with the assessor on the tag interaction and followed the assessor as well. The behavior department believes that Josie can go to an adopter with an average amount of dog experience. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft and engages in soft play, at times body low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks and mouths, then walks away.
01/12/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Josie engages in play with males and females, with varying play styles depending on playmate. She offers correction when play becomes pushy or overly mouthy. Based on the behaviors observed on Josie while in our care, the behavior department recommends that she may be placed into a home with another social, playful dog. Josie arrived into our care as a stray, so any in-home behaviors with dogs are unknown at this time. When off leahsh with other dogs, Josie offers polite greeting. She displays submissive behaviors during interaction, then walks away when the helper dog does not engage. 1/13: Josie engages in bouts of running play with males and females. She offers a strong correction when play becomes too mouthy. 1/14: Josie engages in bouts of vocal, running play. She offers correction for sexually motivated behavior. 1/16 update: Josie engages in brief bouts of play with a calmer male and will engage in vocal running play with a more exuberant male. She eventually offers correction when the male becomes too exuberant as well as vocal. 1/19: Josie engages in bouts of play with males and females. She becomes vocal while engaging in more exuberant play. 1/20, 21 update: Josie continues to exhibit these behaivors when off leash with other dogs. 1/22 update: Josie has a soft play style and will offer correction to a pushy female. 1/26: Josie displays submissive body language during greeting, then eventually begins to engage in a bit of soft play. 1/27: Josie engages in play with other dogs, with play style varying depending on playmate.
