Stanon came into the shelter as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Stanon was very nervous and fearful upon intake.
During SAFER Stano was very fearful when he entered the assessment room he was tense when interacting with the assessor, he allowed all handling items to be conducted but was uncmofortable. Stanon was fearful during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Stanon appears to be sociable, but would need a slow approach and time to warm up, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Experienced” adopter.

Playgroup:When off leash at the care center, Stanon entered the pen with a tucked tail and low body. When the pen door is opened, he nervously exchanges sniff, but is tolerant of the greeter dog’s solicitations.
Stanon was at the back of his kennel with a low head and wide eyes when I came to get him. When I got the rope on him he came right out of his kennel. He maintained a low posture and tucked tail until I got him outside. Once outside I crouched down and he came over and investigated me. When I tried to softly touch his body he flinched and pulled away while lip licking. I took him on a walk around the block and eventually his posture raised and his tail moved to a neutral position. Whenever a car passed or there was loud street noise, he would flinch and lower his body. Eventually he relieved himself. When I took him back to his kennel he went in with no problem.
Stanon was surrender as a stray so his pass behavior with dogs is unknown.
8/17: When off leash at the care center, Stanon entered the pen with a tucked tail and low body. When the pen door is opened, he nervously exchanges sniff, but is tolerant of the greeter dog’s solicitations.
