05/27/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Leif reminds me of a number of needy children I took care of and who wanted to touch, try and taste what ever I had in my office that seemed to them like a house of plenty. Like them, Leif wants to experience everything at once, and he acts like an bull in a china shop. Although he likes to jump for treats, he can sit at once upon request, and even learned to be less grabby for duck jerkies. He is smart, likes us, humans, and learns fast. Same with toys. He knows what a stuffy and a ball are, and what to do with them. He is just a little too enthusiastic and overshooting. What about love? Well, Leif is pretty good in that department, too. Upon invite (yes he waits for it), he hops on the bench and snuggles very gently and tenderly on my lap, pressing his head against my chest and licking my face with zeal. What a sweet boy. He likes as well ladies of his own kind and wags vigorously his tail when he sees one. In a nutshell, our friend Leif seems to have been quite deprived and would love to make up for all that he has missed before coming to us. Food, fun and love…is that so much to ask? Leif has a lot of qualities we like to see in a pet. He just needs some polishing that will come with a better life and some guidance. Are you ready to make a Prince out of this Pauper?

He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, closed mouth. Tag: 1.

Minimal interest, dog takes toy then loses interest. Summary: Leif displayed no concerning behaviors on his assessment and was social throughout. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 5/23: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Leif approaches and initially greets politely. He then follows, sniffs while licking at her rear end. When posturing to mount, he responds well to interruption from handlers. Due to limited observation and history on Leif, the behavior department recommends that future introductions be conducted slowly to polite dogs. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/21/17 During his initial medical exam, Leif was social and allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Leif so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
