A volunteer writes: Mamook is as sweet as can be! He has such a calm, loving demeanor it’s hard not to fall in love. His greying muzzle is evidence of his more seasoned attitude, and it’s so so cute! Mamook walks calmly on the leash, is reportedly very housetrained and even knows the commands sit, speak and give paw (though he’s a bit camera shy and wouldn’t let me get it on film!). Mamook’s former owner described him as friendly and affectionate, says that he loves car rides and was good with a three year old child he spent time with. He’s the kind of guy who, after a leisurely walk in the neighborhood, would be perfectly content lounging on the couch with you, having a Netflix marathon, or watching your favorite romantic comedy. If you’re looking for a laid back guy who won’t demand much more than some good food, a soft place to sleep and a loving home, ask to meet Mamook today!

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When off leash at the Care Center, Mamook displays soft and social body language in a group of calm male and female dogs. Mamook’s previous guardian reported that he has never been around other dogs. The Behavior Department recommends that Mamook be placed with resident dogs that match his calm sociability.
6/11: Mamook greets the female helper with a neutral posture but mostly keep to himself while exploring the yard.
6/12: Mamook greets a novel male with a neutral posture. He does socialize some with the other dog, occasionally checking in with him, but mostly wanders the yard exploring on his own.
6/13: Mamook displays soft and social body language in a group of calm male and female dogs.
6/15-6/16: Mamook ignores a novel male dog and wanders in the pen.
6/20: Mamook keeps to himself as he explores, not engaging in play when solicited.
INTAKE BEHAVIOR 6/10/17; Behavior unknown
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/10/17 Mamook was energetic, interactive, allows full exam easily.
His previous owner reports a high activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center.
Mamook displayed high energy and movement throughout assessment.
Mamook will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with
behaviors outlined below).
_X_ Anxiety- Mamook has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining,) continually through the SAFER and through play sessions outside. This behavior was not reported at intake, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment.
