A staff member writes: If Star could speak, she would say, “Twinkle, twinkle little STAR! How I wonder what you are… I’m just a sweet little pocket-pittie-looking girl who is misunderstood. I’m not going to lie: this placed freaked me out when I first arrived. I had to see doctor’s and new handler’s everyday. I wasn’t sure what to do exactly or who to trust. I’ve seen you around more & more, and it wasn’t until yesterday, 10 days into my stay here, that I realized I could open up to you. You’ve been so nice to me this whole time, and I can’t believe I didn’t notice it sooner! Here: Here’s a hug and a kiss and a hug and a kiss! I like you! I really like you! Let’s run around and plaaaaaay!!! Come on! Join me!” Star is such a silly girl once you get to know her, and I feel as though, with an experienced & patient owner with a quiet home, she would acclimate just fine. Come by today to meet this Star who may just brighten your life a little.
01/31/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 01/19/17 Intact, Stray Bite history: Star bit a teenager on her chest and right finger – further details are unknown. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Star has remained uncomfortable during her stay at our care centers, tolerating some handling from familiar caretakers; She appears to be uncomfortable or afraid of the slip lead. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Star is not a candidate for a handling assessment at this time MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 01/20/17 During her initial medical examination, Star appeared tense. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner(While Star has allowed some handling with select caretakers, she remains uncomfortable in the care centers. She has generally given clear and protracted warnings and has not escalated to threatening behavior, but we are concerned that extra pressure may elicit higher level warnings. We feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification guidance in a stable home environment will best set Star up for success in a future adoptive home. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Though she has improved slightly during her stay at our care centers, Star continues to give all appropriate warning signals when uncomfortable. Due to the consistent behavior displayed in shelter, the behavior department recommends an experienced adult home only until she can acclimate to her new home environment for the behavior to be further assessed. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is advised; force-free, reward based training only is recommended.) _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression
