A volunteer writes: Hello new friend! My name is Tiger and I’m a GOOD BOY. How can I be so sure? Well, the volunteers call me that all the time and just check out my walking log comments…’Super sweet boy’…’Sweet and easy’…’A wonderful boy’. I can’t even read and I see a pattern there! One of my special friends says I have ‘personality plus’, which must be a good thing because it made her smile and even laugh when I answered back with one of my many happy noises. Did I mention I’m a real talker? Maybe I was an actor in a previous life because I’ve got quite the range, from come-play-with-me whines to quiet little howls of appreciation to short greeting barks. Whatever the occasion calls for I’ve got it covered but don’t worry, once back in my den I can be calm and quiet as a mouse. I absolutely adore other dogs and also balls but treats too and of course I love my human peeps, especially when they give me belly rubs…ooooh, they’re the BEST! I take care of all my business outdoors, can sit on command, I know how to play fetch and chase and I’m more than happy to share my toys too. I’ll admit that sometimes I can pull on the leash but it’s only ’cause I want to be close to my doggie friends and the rest of the time I am (and I quote) a ‘very calm and responsive’ walker. With all this energy to burn I really hope my new family likes the great outdoors (or at least trips to the dog park) as much as I do! My schedule is wide open for play dates and snuggle sessions and I’d LOVE to see you soon. Come to the Manhattan Care Center and ask for me, Tiger, by name!
06/03/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tiger has generally been social with his human caretakers, but he has shown a low threshold for arousal and potential to redirect onto human handlers. Please see the GroupBehavior entry for additional details. Tiger does have a bite history, biting his previous owner on the hand without any clear trigger and leaving 3-4 shallow punctures. He does also seem to have been handled roughly in his previous home so may have developed associations to certain movements or gestures. However, based upon behaviors seen in the care center and reported in his previous home we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary positive reinforcement-based behavior modification, training, and guidance necessary. 5/28 SAFER assessment: Since Tiger has been in our care we have observed him to be very social with our handlers. Tiger pulled slightly on the leash but was very interested in interacting with the assessor. He was a bit vocal and would bark and whine when looking at the assistant in the room. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining soft body language. During the tag interaction Tiger became a bit over excited and would mouth the leash strongly but calmed down after a bit of time. He proved easy to handle when chewing on the toy item keeping a firm grip with loose body language as the assessor attempted to take it. 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 assumes play position and joins the game. He indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on assessor a bit strongly mouthing the leash, and de-escalates slowly but shows no signs of aggression. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body soft, tail well above spine level, ears forward.
01/16/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs Pepper Jack approaches briefly to sniff but is anxious and distracted. After each approach he will run back toward the gate whining and barking. 6/2 update: Tiger initially greets and begins to solicit play from the helper dog. He becomes increasingly pushy when soliciting. Tiger becomes aroused in response to the other dog’s corrections, and continues to jump on hew with increasing intensity. When a human handler attempts to disengage the situation by using an interruptor (water spray bottle), he jumps up and snaps at their hands. He is difficult to remove from the pen and is eventually removed when the handler is able to grab his drag leash while his back is turned.
