03/13/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/13/16 12:39 Talia A1067502 is a young female white & gray AMPBT who was found tied up to the gate in front of the finder’s home. The finder isn’t a fan of Pitbulls and was told by 311 to bring her into us here at the BXAC. They stated she was friendly and drank a bowl of water. During intake Talia had a super loose and wiggly body although when first approached she was submissive (low body posture) and urinated some as I was talking, petting and scanning (-) her. Talia jumped up on my lap for hugs & kisses and rolled over for belly rubs. Talia would lay flat on the ground in a “frog” stance. She was then walked to her kennel where she walked in on her own once she spotted the food bowl.
03/16/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Call Talia over to say hello and she’ll lean in close for petting. Show her a toy and she’ll get the zoomies. Give her a treat, ask her to sit and she will. She’s quiet in her kennel, easily leashed and so happy to be out to play. As some birds came into our pen to snack on some left over treats she gives chase maybe thinking they were there to play. Talia is a beauty in her clean and nicely groomed grey and white coat, her tail wags and when she chases a toy she looks a bit awkward like a young child first learning to run. She’s so happy to be outside doing zoomies, she really didn’t need me to be there except for the treats which she came over to get, taking them gently before going off for a couple of more zoomies. I guess that’s how she keeps her beautiful figure! This gorgeous girl needs a little training and structure to make her all that she can be, but she has all the basics so with the proper positive reinforcement training and love she’ll be the rock star she should be.
03/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Talia came to us as a stray so we do not have any behavior information other than what has been observed in the shelter environment. Upon intake Talia also had very soft body language with the admissions counselor allowing all handling while attempting to jump on the counselor and lick the counselor’s face. During her medical exam Talia allowed all handling to be conducted without issue and soft body language. Talia pulled very hard on the leash during her relief walk. She was very interested in interacting with the assessor when entering the behavior. Talia had very high energy, was hard to position, and constantly jumped on the assessor while mouthing with moderate pressure. Talia showed some concerning behavior during the tag portion of the assessment jumping up on the assessor strongly, body checking the assessor. Talia escalated during the tag interaction and jumped up toward the assessor while growling, and air snapped at the assessor. She proved easy to handle when chewing on the toy item having soft body language when the assessor attempted to take it with the assess-a-hand. Talia rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test, but showed no aggression. 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. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. Tag: 4. Dog becomes quikcly over aroused body checking assessor, then jumps growls and snaps at the assessor. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches the helper dog by rushing in with his tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip long Helper: A1066514
