08/06/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Rubenesque, chunky mama, pleasantly plump…..call her what you will but be sure to call her! So shy in her kennel, overwhelmed at being left by her family amidst all the barking dogs, new smells and constant activity, she allows herself to be leashed and steps down gingerly. Once outside she relaxes a bit, she goes potty right away and we’re off to the park. Sharllette’s tail starts to wag gently, she ignores other dogs we pass, but did react in kind to a small dog barking at her. In the park Sharllette finds the squirrels and birds fascinating, settling down to watch them pass, and attempting to give chase to a couple of squirrels who come too close. As Sharllette gets more comfortable with me she solicits some petting, softly takes treats, and leans into me for petting. We’re told that Sharllette is friendly to new people, lived with children from 8-17 and is relaxed and playful with them, barks at dogs she sees outside, loves to play with balls and rope toys, is shy but friendly and likes to be in the same room with her family. Sharllette needs a quiet new home in which she can relax and regain her balance and composure. She’s taking the loss of her family with difficult but I think once surrounded by people who care about her she’ll come out of her shell. Sharllette didn’t know me for long before she wanted me to pet her and lay down in the grass to chill out with me. Just think how well she’ll do with more time. Will you be the one to give it to her?
08/05/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sharllette is fearful of the shelter environment she walks with a low and fearful body language. Sharllette extremely was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. She is under either social or environmental stress. Sharllette had her tail tucked, rapid painting but will close her mouth and slightly lips curled her mouth if the handler gets too close to her. Due to the behavior demonstrated in the shelter the behavior department decided to skip the handler part of the assessment. During the resources Sharllette was not interested in toys. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Toy 1: No interest. Playgroup Notes: When off leash with other dogs, Sharllette is fearful with a tucked tail. She only sniffs when the helper dog turns away.
