03/11/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Her beautiful big eyes draw me in, and I know we’re going to be friends. Joining us with her sister(?) due to a house fire, she’s initially shy in her kennel, but her wagging tail betrays her shyness. She’s a doll!! Queenie allows me to put a coat on her against the snow and cold, and she’s a terrific sport about being out in the snowstorm. She’s definitely shy at first, but when we hunkered down out of the snow, she rolled in for some sweet kisses, all the while wagging her tail. She sits for treats without being asked, and sweeps them gently from my hand. Queenie is alert and curious, watching with interest as people come and go. An easy walker on leash, her tail never stops wagging. Queenie goes potty as we head back to the building, so may be housetrained, but she’s a baby still, so may need some positive reinforcement reminders. She loves treats, so it will be easy. Queenie needs a soft voice and easy touch due to her initial shyness, but opens up quickly with love. She’s a baby who’s been through a lot in her short little life and is handling it all remarkably well. She’s ready for a new family or person to love. Shouldn’t it be you?
03/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/7/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/9/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game with coaxing. She is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor, mainly the exit. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Quenie appeared anxious in the assessment room, repeatedly running to the door and whining and barking. She was social with the assessor and allowed all handling. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 3/8: When introduced off leash to male and female dogs in the care center, Quenie avoids approach and anxiously seeks to exit the yard. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/7/17 During her initial medical exam, Quenie was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Quenie so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_Anxiety (Quenie has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, barking) continually through the SAFER. This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have no known history on Quenie, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. Force-free, positive reinforcement training should be used for any behaviors that occur in the home.)
