SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Helper dog: A1081092
Pookie was surrendered on 7/5/16, as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown.
Behavior during Intake: Pookie was friendly but didn’t allow the counselors to pick him up.
During SAFER Pookie came into the assessment room calm and friendly, he had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Pookie was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Pookie was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Pookie appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels he would be suitable for an “Average” adopter.

Enrichment Facilitator was attempting to remove Pookie from his kennel to run him to PG. Pookie was wiggly and excited upon approach and as Aaron opened the kennel door, Pookie leapt out of the kennel. There was a volunteer returning another dog to his kennel so Aaron felt for safety reasons he had to catch Pookie and not allow him to run loose. When he did Pookie turned and bit him on the thumb leaving one puncture wound and laceration.
***Behavior walks only***
Bite details: Pookie bit a staff member while he was attempting to remove him from his kennel. He jumped out when the door was opened and when the staff member caught him, he turned and bit.
7/14: Pookie was at the front of the kennel with a wiggly body. He allowed me to life him up and placed him on the floor. He walked towards the play pens and became excited once outside. In the pens he jumped on the bench and lay next to me while I massage him. He did not give me any issues when it was time to go back.
7/15:Pookie walked straight into my arms when I opened his kennel door. I placed him on the floor and walked him towards the play pens without an issue. Once inside he explored his surroundings and then joins me on the bench. I offered treats and he took it with a slightly hard mouth. Afterwards I was able to placed him back into his kennel.
7/16: Pookie was lying on his bed when I came to get him but got up with a loose wiggly body when I opened the door. He allowed me to pick him up and went out to the pens with no problem. In the pens he peed immediately and then came over to where I was sitting on the bench and solicited attention. When I stopped petting him he would continue to solicit attention from me. He allowed all handling. I stood up and he followed me, at which point he pooped and then explored the pen. He went back to his kennel and allowed me to lift him in with no issues.
7/18: Pookie is the same, he still allows me to lift him in and out of his kennel with no issues and is social in the pen, allowing all handling.
