03/08/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: There’s nothing tiny about Tiny! She’s pleasingly plump (not fat), playful, affectionate and all about being with her person. Give her a toy and she loves to play tug, give her a ball and she’ll toss it around, give her a kiss and she’ll kiss you back. Tiny was surrendered to our care as her owner is ill. She lived with a 2,4, and 5 year old with whom she was playful and gentle, and respectfully with a cat. We’re also told she’s housetrained (check and double check!), crate trained, and knows ‘sit’, ‘come’ and ‘stay’. Our walk to the park was uneventful, although Tiny does like to play tug a bit with the leash but is easily distracted. She poses for photos like a pro, shows me her sit and takes treats gently. Other dogs are passed without issue although she will bark back if a dog barks at her. It’s in the backyard where she shines, with a ball and a toy which she brings onto my lap in invitation to play. She pulled apart a plush toy (RIP plush toy), but loved a rope toy with which we played tug. Fabulously playful, never guarding her stuff, eager to share her toy with her person, Tiny is fun, affectionate, sweet and amazing. This little gray dumpling is looking for a new family with whom to spend the rest of her life. Shouldn’t it be you?

03/06/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tiny was brought in as an owner surrender due to owner’s declining health. It is reported Tiny a cat as well as lived with a 2, 4, and 5 year old child, playful and gentle. Owner states Tiny is not bothered if anyone touches her Food, Toys, or Treats while eating. She is described as friendly, affectionate, and playful. Owner reports Tiny is housebroken and crate trained. During intake, Tiny was surrounded by many stressors, including a large breed dog barking loudly. She was taken directly back to the medical department, therefore no handling was attempted. During Tiny’s initial medical exam, she was very tense and nervous. Tiny pulled slightly on leash for her relief walk. She was sociable and friendly upon entering the SAFER assessment room, but grabbed the leash to play tug. When not engaged with assessor, she shook it playfully with herself until redirected with a treat. Tiny allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands during Look item, body soft. She leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, open mouth pant. Tiny followed at the end of the leash, but grabbed the leash and focused on it on the second pass, requiring redirection with treats at end of game. She moved his legs and body away during Squeeze attempt, requiring remaining item to be conducted with Flank. Tiny had no response to both Flank Squeezes. She kept a firm grip on Toy, loose body, requiring a treat to trade up in order to relinquish. The Behavior Team feels Tiny would do best with an Experienced owner that does not have very young children. She will benefit from obedience classes to further rehearse trade up games, as well as learn leash manners and the command drop it. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She 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, open mouth. Tag: 2.

03/06/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Tiny stands tall and is a bit tense when greeting. She sniffs around her surroundings. Each time the helper dog re-approaches, she stands over, places her paws on his back, and begins to growl. When the helper dog moves away and doesn’t re-approach, Tiny begins to grab and play with her leash, becoming increasingly aroused, vocal and difficult to distract. When she has the leash the helper dog approaches, she stiffens and begins to shake the leash and move away from him. Her owner does not elaborate on any specific interactions with other dogs but does say Tiny has never bitten another animal. The behavior department recommends Tiny does not go to a home with another dog at this time until her behaviors can be followed up on.
