07/09/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: ‘Really, seriously, you mean me, you’re coming for me? I’m so excited, that’s awesome, I can’t wait! For real, we’re going out?! woooo hoooo, doing a happy dance!’. And that’s how Vincent and I met. This little black wiggly peanut in his kennel is soooooo excited to be leashed and head out the door he can barely contain himself and once outside takes care of his business “toot sweet” and then is a perfect gentleman! His leash manners are perfect, he’s a wiggle butt when I talk to him, his tail wags in joy, he snuggles, he kisses, he poses for photos, he takes treats gently, he’s a doll! In the park we stop for a water break, Vincent lapping up some water from the bowl and we then proceed to snuggle some more and share more treats. He’s such a sweet pup he won my heart in no time. He has soft eyes that make contact with such sweetness my heart melts even more as we spend time together. The name Vincent is derived from Latin meaning ‘to conquer’, and Vincent is out to conquer your heart as he did mine. He’s ready to begin his happily ever after with his new person or family, and if you’re lucky, it could be you!
07/10/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Vincent came into our center after a member of the public found him as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. He was very friendly and thirsty upon intake,wagging his tail when offered water. He allowed all handling, and barked to solicit attention during his initial medical exam. Vincent pulled very hard on leash for his relief walk, hard barking at other dogs he passed. He jumped up at the leash upon entering SAFER assessment room. Vincent pulled out of assessor’s hands on all three Look attempts. He leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, mouth open, ears back. Vincent ran and jumped during Tag game, became over aroused and grabbed the leash, but relinquished quickly, then grabbed leash again. He pulled his paw back quickly on both Squeeze attempts. Vincent engaged with Toy, keeping a firm grip with loose body. When off leash with other dogs, Vincent is polite at the gate but when he enters he only greets briefly before walking away. He quickly becomes anxious, pacing the yard, barking and whining. The Behavior Team feels Vincent would do best with an Experienced owner that does not have young children. He will require obedience classes and training to learn leash manners and focus. Vincent may benefit from daily mental and physical stimulation in the forms of walks, runs, exercise, and play. Any other resident dogs should have an in-depth interaction before considering adoption. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Grabs leash. Squeeze 1 / 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back paw Toy 1: 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: When off leash with other dogs, Vincent is polite at the gate but when he enters he only greets briefly before walking away. He quickly becomes anxious, pacing the yard, barking and whining.
07/08/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Vincent has displayed concerning behavior in passing of other dogs in the shelter. It is reported by handlers that he. Vincent has otherwise displayed anxious behavior when initially greeting, and then strictly sexually motivated behavior otherwise (Vincent is unaltered). The behavior team feels that Vincent should not go to a home with other dogs, and should be given time to fully decompress and acclimate to life outside of a shelter setting before following up on his behavior around them. Due to the fact that VIncent arrived as a stray, his history around dogs is unknown. 7/8: Vincent initially approaches the gate (on-leash) to greet the female dog and begins to bark anxiously. He is taken into a separate pen and allowed to greet again with slack leash and showed no concern. Once introduced he is strictly sexually motivated and will continue to attempt to mount once corrected. 7/9 update: Vincent is polite at the gate today but when he enters he only greets briefly before walking away. He quickly becomes anxious, pacing the yard, barking and whining.
