08/04/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/04/16 15:18 Lily is a 9 year old Cocker Spaniel who was surrendered due to her owners health, she has a history of ear infections that is easily treatable according to the owner. Lily is relaxed and playful and enjoys playing with children when she is in the mood to play. Around other dogs Lily can be relaxed and playful if she is in the mood to interact and play, if Lily is not in the mood she tends to let the other dog know and the interaction should be stopped by the owners. Lily has never been around cats so her behavior is unknown. According to the owner Lily is house trained and will wait until she is let out in the yard to go to the bathroom. Lily has been kept mainly indoors but is let out during the day time to play and run around due to her high activity level. She is described as a playful, independent and friendly dog who enjoys PIZZA crust (but who doesnt?). She has never bitten any humans or other dogs and is described as a well behaved dog. She enjoys bring brushed, doesnt mind you moving her from the couch or giving her a bath. She also isnt bothered by trimming her nails or feet. She doesnt seem to be bothered when people approach the house or when strangers approach. The previous owner has never attempted to take her food, treats or water away while eating so her behavior during this is unknown. She knows some commands such as sit, down, come and laydown. She enjoys being let out in the yard for excercise while playing with balls and squeeky toys. You may catch her wanting to come and play fetch or tug. She has never been in a crate trained and its unknown how she will react. When left alone she is well bahved and likes when her owner comes home as she enjoys being petted and having all the attention on her.
08/16/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Lily is an older dog surrendered to the shelter because her owner was too sick to care for her. Lily was happy to see my leash when I approach her kennel and eagerly let me leash her, and out to the yard we went. She was overjoyed to give us all kisses and take the treats we had; when she wasn’t sitting on our laps cuddling, she wandered the yard taking in the fresh air and sunshine. Lily still has plenty of life in her and needs someone to share it with. If you’re interested in adopting Lily, please come to the Care Center and meet her.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lily came into our center as an owner surrender citing owner’s declining health. Behavior around cats is unknown, owner reports at times Lily is playful with children and other dogs. Owner states Lily is housebroken and will wait/hold it until she is let in the yard to use the bathroom. She knows some cues sit, down, come and laydown. She is described as a playful, independent and friendly dog. At times on her relief walk, Lily pulled towards the street. She was calm and friendly upon entering SAFER assessment room. Lily allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, relaxed. She stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, eyes soft and squinty, mouth closed. Lily followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body soft. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. She showed no interest in Toy, though this may be due to environment as owner reports she enjoys being let out in the yard for exercise while playing with balls and squeaky toys, plays fetch and tug. Lily approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, relaxed. The Behavior Team feels Lily would do well with an Average adopter. Due to having history of being let out in a yard and propensity to pull towards the street while on leash, it is recommended Lily be walked by adults only. 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.
