07/06/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Who needs diamonds and pearls when you could have a treasure like Nena by your side? She’s shy but sweet, lady-like yet playful as a puppy, and so beautiful that no photo could ever do her justice. Nena is a priceless gem who truly must be seen to be believed. She’s a good walker, and though a bit scared of the leash at first, once it’s on we can stroll around with ease while she takes care of her business and explores each and every smell her sensitive nose can find: the more obscure, the better! She knows how to sit and shake paw, and mouths treats super softly from an outstretched hand, greets other dogs with polite friendship and loves to be gently scratched behind her ears. But Nena’s more than just a pretty face and some refined manners. She’s a star athlete, too! Leaping, bounding, almost flying through the air, her elegant body twisting this way and that while her little paws make fast work of hustling the ball closer to her mouth. To watch her play is to witness poetry in motion, and if they accepted dogs into the WNBA, this girl would be drafted on the spot! She’s a one-in-a-million pet, and we all love having her here at the Care Center, but we’d love to see her leave with a new family even more. Will you give Nena the ‘big break’ she’s been waiting for?
07/05/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Nena walks with a low fearful body language on leash. She was shy but friendly during the assessment – low body, but trying to stay close. Nena was shy during handling with a fearful body language. She had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. Nena was not interested in toys. The behavior department feels that Nena may do best with an experienced adopter. She is somewhat fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Nena is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2.
