12/11/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Meet Storm, the one-eyed wonder dog! This beautiful lanky lady was with her family since she was a puppy, so it’s no wonder she’s a little nervous to find herself with us. Despite being out of her element, Storm still shines and seems like a very, very sweet, gentle, sensitive kind of girl. She has done well with other dogs in our playgroups, walks beautifully on leash, quietly solicits attention, and, on our most recent outing, carried around a plushy toy in an adorable way (like it was a comforting pacifier!). She isn’t ready to take my treats yet (or maybe I just don’t have the right kind!), but is super well-behaved and sits right away when I ask, and then shows me that she knows “down.” too. We’re told she is fully housetrained, is well behaved and not destructive when left alone, loved sleeping in bed with her owner, and even lived harmoniously with a cat! She might be wary of children, but is described as playful and affectionate around adults. So, really she isn’t just a wonder dog, but a WONDERFUL dog! Come meet her at Brooklyn ACC!
12/13/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Spayed, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults/children Behavior toward children: Storm can be wary of children when they try to pet her Behavior toward dogs: Playful/gentle Behavior toward cats: Relaxed FG/RG: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 12/7/16 Toy: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Summary: Storm was nervous upon entering the SAFER room, jumpy especially when approached on her blind side. She did warm up with some time, approaching the assessor and assistant and mimicking movement – sitting at the assessor’s side when she sat, and getting up and walking when the assessor stood and moved. She remained a bit tense, though it is difficult to be certain what was fearful behavior and what was overcompensation due to her loss of an eye. For example, she turned her head quickly when the assessor tried to move the collar on the blind side, but this may have been an attempt to visualize with her good eye. Still, she remained a bit anxious. She allowed gentle eye contact on Look and allowed herself to be touched and petted gently. She managed her stress well with behaviors like lying down. She is clearly social but due to her uneasiness with close proximity at times and the knowledge that the SAFER items may be too provoking in this environment, the full assessment was not conducted. Storm shows potential to warm up as long as she is given time to grow comfortable with her caretakers and environment. PLAYGROUP: Storm’s previous owner stated that Storm enjoys being around small and large dogs. When off leash with a male dog at the care center, Storm was initially nervous when interacting with novel dogs. In a group of calm male and female dogs, Storm displays calm sociability, checking in on other dogs. She is tolerant of long face to face greets and a male mounting her. The Behavior Department recommends that Storm be placed in a home with dogs that match her calm sociability and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: During her initial medical examination, Storm was not sociable and did not allow to be pet. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Placement with a New Hope Rescue
