Another volunteer writes: Hunky, Hunky, Puppy Alert!!! It’s impossible to miss this big guy in his kennel, he’s up front and ready to go when you are. He’s gorgeous in his latte color coat, his leash manners are lovely, he seems to be housetrained, and his oh so serious face houses a tongue just made for kissing! When we stop to take some pictures (he’s a serious and perfect model), I sit with him and get ready to get my face washed. What a good kisser he is! On the way back to the building Mammoth decided it would be a good idea to walk himself, and gently took my leash in his mouth. In the yard Mammoth joins me on the bench for more hugs, explores the pen, gently enjoys some treats and breaks into an ear to ear smile that made the sunshine look pale in comparison. Mammoth ignored a little dog we passed on our walk, and enjoys a romp in playgroup. He’s an awesome big puppy, looking for love, structure, and more love.
Mammoth was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up and mouthy (light). He was overexcited during handling, jumping up, grabbing at the leash, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Mammoth engages in play, body is loose and wiggly; grab at the leash but easy to distract him. He took
the toy with a soft body language.
Mammoth is a very active and jumpy dog. He needs a significant amount of exercise, mental stimulation and training. The behavior department feels that he can go to an experienced home who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification
Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor.
Tag: 2. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Grab at the leash but was easy to distract him
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2: 2. Dog gently places his open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure.
Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
