Moana came to the care center as a stray so her behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake she appeared very sweet and allowed all handling. Moana was friendly upon entering SAFER assessment room, at times jumping up on handlers affectionately but a bit roughly. She held gaze for three full seconds during Look item. Moana leaned into
assessor during Sensitivity item, ears back, body soft. She followed at the end of the leash during Tag game, began displacement scratching towards end of game, then jumped up hard on assessor at the very end. She displayed energy and movement in between Squeeze attempts, quickly pulling her paw back on both Squeeze items. Moana grabbed Toy quickly, reacted to approaching assess-a-hand by grabbing it quickly as well. She was not stiff, but mouthy and grabby. When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Moana engages in bouts of soft play. She arrived as a stray so history around dogs is unknown. The behavior department recommends slow introductions with any resident dogs in a future home. The Behavior Team feels Moana would do best with an Experienced adopter that does not have Young Children. She will benefit from training in regards to jumping up and impulse control regarding toys.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag: 2. Follows at end of leash, body soft, displacement scratching, jumps high on assessor at end.
Squeeze 1 / 2: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement in between attempts, quickly pulls paw back
Toy 2. Dog quickly mouths/grabs toy and mouths/grabs approaching assess-a-hand
Dog-dog: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Moana engages in bouts of soft play. She arrived as a stray so history around dogs is unknown. The behavior department recommends slow introductions with any resident dogs in a future home.
