10/11/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/11/16 12:18 Maggie is an adult female APBT mix. She was found loose outside and brought to ACC by police. They had no further information. Maggie barked (growly sounding) in the police car, her ears back, tail wagging at spine level, a bit stiff. I tossed her a treat and her body became soft. She took the treat. Then her body because lose and wiggly, her tail wagging fast, her ears to the side. She took treats gently from my hand and maintained a wiggly body while I leashed her and during handling-scan (-), collar, petting, pictures. From the Admissions office, she barked when people passed on the other side of the window. She barked at new people who entered the room, but as they approached, she stopped barking and her body became loose and wiggly with a fast wagging tail. She jumped up and leaned against us while we pet her. She lied down next to me with a soft body and open mouth while I pet her. She pulled on her leash. She sat when asked.

A volunteer writes: Google the name Maggie and you’ll come up with a couple of different meanings: “Pearl” and “child of light”. I love both of those for this little black and white morsel of deliciousness. Fun, friendly, and sweet, with the best smile and ever wagging tail, Miss Maggie is so happy to be outside to potty which she does endlessly. Whew…holding it for a while. We’re off to the park, Maggie pulling just slightly in her joy at a nice walk, and once in the park she poses for photos like a pro, ignoring all the squirrels who come to investigate. Wagging her tail at a yappy small dog who was pulling towards her, Maggie is indeed full of light as she alertly checks out the park, enjoys some treats, and cutely gets tangled up in her leash when I have her tethered. Maggie has been well taken care of before being found wandering alone in the street and brought into our care by the police. Her coat gleams, her weight is perfect for her size and she loves meeting new people. All wiggly fun and soft delight, our ‘pearl’, our ‘child of light’ is hoping to begin her happily ever after with a new person or family. Please come meet her today.

KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/12/2016 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog leans away and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, body soft, fast wag Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, playful Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed Toy 2. Dog playfully engages, takes toy away with loose body Summary: Maggie displayed no concern during her behavior assessment. Maggie may benefit best from an adopter who can provide daily mental/physical stimulation as she appears to require an outlet for her energy/exuberance. PLAYGROUP: 10/12: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Maggie allows brief sniffing toward her rear. She offers hard correction upon second approach. Maggie arrived as a stray without history cited around dogs. The behavior department feels Maggie may be most comfortable as the only resident dog at this time until her behavior around them can be followed up on. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/12/2016 During her initial medical examination, Maggie readily allowed all handling without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: Maggie has displayed a high energy level during her stay at the care centers RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience _X_Single-pet home (See playgroup notes) Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control (It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended.)
