01/18/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Max may be puttin’ on the ritz with his fancy bow tie but don’t let that fool you, he’s a happy-go-lucky youngster at heart and I’d bet a million dollars there’s a smile worth just as much hiding behind his oh-so-serious mug. Eager to meet new friends of all sizes and species, Max enjoys a good body massage from his human companion but it’s play dates with four-legged friends that really send his whirring his tail into full helicopter mode–Max LOVES dogs! No surprise there as he formerly lived in relaxed and playful harmony with two fellow Bullies as well as two older children and has no problems sharing toys or food or a game of fetch with anyone who’ll join him. Described as friendly and high energy by his previous owner, we’re told he’s house trained (yes) and knows commands for ‘sit’ (perfectly!) and ‘no’ (we’re working on this one) and though we’re told he can pull when excited, Max was actually one of my best walkers of the day and a real ‘smooth sailor’ on the leash. Like many youngsters cooped up over the winter, his excitement levels skyrocket once we hit the yard but he’s easily distracted from jumping by the prospect of a walk and when he offers a little ear kiss’n’nibble apology I can’t help but forgive him. Who could resist that face?!! No matter the size or species included in your family circle there’s one surefire way to instantly ‘class up the joint’…Adopt handsome Max today!
01/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Max came to us as an owner surrender on 1/14/16. According to the owner Max has lived with two children and is described as being relaxed and playful around the children. He has also lived with two other dogs and displayed the same behavior as with the children. Max was very vocal when entering the behavior room and often barked at the assessor, but would calm after a few minutes. When the assessor was holding the leash he would bark at the assistant and also calm down after a few minutes. Max allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining soft body language. He was distracted during the tag interaction and was more interested in exploring his environment. The behavior department believes that Max can go to an adopter with an average amount of dog experience. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (needs coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: No interest.
01/16/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Max has briefly engaged in play with other dogs when solcited, but has displayed the most interest in mounting other dogs in the pen. He eventually becomes more persistant with prolonged time in the yard. Max has displayed anxious behaviors both in the yard and shelter, such as vocalizing, and pacing. According to previous owner, “Max has lived with two other large dogs (Pit Bull and Bull terrier), Max was relaxed around and played very well with them”. The behavior department recommends a pre adoption interaction for Max before placement into a home with another dog, and allowing Max time to acclimate into a home before beginning slow introductions. When off leash with other dogs Max greets and sniffs. Eventually he approaches the helper dog to mount but will cease attempts once she walks away. 1/19: Max offers greeting and sniffs the female helper. He continues approaching to attempt to mount, but eventually ceases. 1/20 update: Max is sexually motivated but when offered correction twice he ceases and explores the yard. 1/21 Max is tolerant of play solicitation but mmostly is focused on mounting another male in the yard. 1/22 update: Max mounts both males and females, only briefly engaging in play with either.
