04/24/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I’m a sucker for handsome puppies and Spencer is about as debonair as they come! A lean redhead with perfect markings and mesmerizing eyes so pale I’d almost believe he was part Husky, this young hunk had me at hello and the moment our gaze met I knew it was love. But don’t worry, Spencer’s so much more than just a pretty face and after an enthusiastic walk through the park, a snuggle session and some prompt responses to sit, stay and up commands (with treats as motivation) he established his good boy credentials fair and square. Spencer greets other dogs with friendly tail wags and looks at every person we pass with the trusting innocence you’d expect from an affectionate and well-socialized puppy. Beautiful inside and out, he’s full of potential and so ready to share his heart with a new family of any size. That gorgeous face may look serious but I guarantee you’ll be smiling with pride the day you welcome Spencer home, he truly is a puppy to love and treasure for a lifetime.
04/23/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
DKNOWN HISTORY: None 4/21/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/21/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He 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, closed mouth. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 5. Dog growls and snaps. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Spencer appeared social during his assessment until the second squeeze attempt. During that, he growled and snapped at the assessor. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Pending MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/21/17 During his initial medical exam, Spencer was social but nipped lightly when his rear end was touched. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Spencer so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Spencer’s behavior of snapping during some handling, we recommend an adult only home. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to snapping with some handling, Spencer should be placed with a New Hope partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Spencer to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when handling Spencer. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Spencer presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Spencer has growled and snapped when his paw were handled, showing an uncomfortability with touch in certain areas. It is important to avoid touching Spencer’s paws at this time and being cautious when touching him in other areas as we do not know where he may have other sensitivities. Positive reinforcement, reward based training should be used to pair touch with good things such as food rewards.
