04/29/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Named for the ‘City of Brotherly Love’, stunning Philly has walked the talk for several happy years now, living in harmony with his 3 canine siblings, greeting visiting kids with gentle respect and just being an all-round friendly, playful and affectionate pet. He knows how to come when called, meets fellow dogs with polite good manners and seems to be quite house trained too. And while his leash technique is all pull pull pull, that’s only because he has almost zero experience being attached to one. Until recently Philly’s days were filled with socializing and playtime in the yard, his nights spent peacefully sleeping in his crate. He was happy, his family was happy and everyone thought that the good times would never end. But everything changed the day he accidentally discovered the ‘cat room’ his owners had been careful to separate from the rest of the household and sad to say, one of the cats was attacked. As a cat lover myself it’s heartbreaking to read about this tragedy, but as a dog lover I know that Philly was just following his instincts, and after our first date I can assure you he is quite the gentleman, no rough stuff or funny business to see here! He takes treats gently, lets me pet him all over, and as per his former owner, has no guarding issues whatsoever. It’s no surprise to see Philly did well on his behavior evaluation, earning a respectable rating that means he’d be a great fit for any committed, experienced home and he’s already neutered and ready to leave today. Philly is a good boy at heart and in an active, cat-free family where he can play and eat to his heart’s content, I’ve no doubt he’ll continue to live up to his namesake and share the love for many years to come.
04/27/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Philly came into our center as an owner surrender after running into the basement and grabbing a cat that owner was taking care of. With owner attempting to intervene, owner’s hand was indirectly bitten and cat died from the resulting intervention and injuries. Owner reports Philly lived with 3 other medium to large sized dogs. It is reported he has been around children, respectful of them. He is described as friendly, playful, affectionate, independent. It is reported he slept in his crate. Philly pulled a bit on leash for his relief walk. He was calm and quiet upon entering SAFER assessment room, tail down. Philly held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, relaxed. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, lip lick. Philly was distracted and unresponsive to touch during Tag game. He gently pulled his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Philly showed minimal interest in Toy, sniffing before turning away. He approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, not stiff. The Behavior Team feels Philly would do best with an Experienced adopter. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, lip lick Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 / 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip neutral.
04/28/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Due to Philly’s history, he is muzzled for this interaction. He is loose and wagging when greeting at the gate and when he is introduced he maintains a relaxed body while he sniffs the helper dog. He is distracted by the muzzle so after a short greeting he walks away. Once the muzzle is removed Philly again becomes loose and greets appropriately. 4/29 update: Philly is re-introduced without a muzzle. He aprpoaches to greet the female, then persistantly tries to mount. Previous owner cites “He lived in the home with 3 other rescue dogs and played fine with them. The owner stated that there was a conflict on friday 4/15/2016 between the dogs.” however, the incident is not elaborated. Due to only having one interaction, we recommend a pre adoption interaction before placement into a home with another dog.
