04/02/17 17:09 Behavior while with finder: Parka was very friendly toward her finder and allowed him to place a leash around her and bring her to his home. Parka’s finder did not interact with Parka very much but would take treats gently from his hand. Intake Behavior: Parka was initially friendly toward staff and greeted staff by putting her front paws on staff. Parka then became very nervous and began to growl and bark at staff when staff went near her.
04/06/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: The first thing I noticed about sweet little Parka was the white glove she wears on her right paw, a lá Michael Jackson (all she’s missing is sequins!). The second thing I noticed was how calm, quiet, and sweet she was in her cage. She walks very easily next to me on her leash, staying right next to me. At first, I thought it was just because she loved me so much, but I realized quickly that she was also stopping every few feet to look up at me and my fanny pack full of treats! This girl has already mastered her “begging” face (she is very ready to be spoiled in her new home). And who can say no, to a pup this cute? Parka seems to be housetrained, is very friendly and affectionate (gives kisses and seeks cuddles whenever given the chance), and loves her treats. Come and see this loving little treat gobbler at the BACC today!

Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity:2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body a bit tense with her mouth closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body low a bit fearful.

Summary: Parka was fearful but a bit social towards the assessor with a very slow approach. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Parka mostly keeps to herself in a group of calm male and female dogs. Parka was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Parka be placed with a resident dog that matches her calm sociability. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/3/17 During her medical examination, Parka was fearful with her tail tucked and allowed limited handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Parka displays a low activity level in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Parka is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Recommend no dog parks (Due to Parka’s slight uncomfortableness in a group of dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that she only be socialized in more controlled settings.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Though observed to be human-social, Parka may need time to warm up to the handler as she initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Parka to interact at her own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations.
