03/31/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: “Willllburrrr!” 2 year-old Wilbur must get that a lot but it’s the first thing I say when I see him. As handsome as a thoroughbred and happy as a clam, Wilbur is an Oreo cookie on four legs, only much more delicious and exponentially more sweet. Wilbur came into our care along with his housemate after their family could no longer care for them. But Wilbur is clearly no stranger to care. He is an easy-going boy, a lover of people, of games, and of toys, and his gorgeous, shiny coat and perfect weight are the mark of plenty of TLC. Wilbur greets me with a smile (of course) and off we go for a stroll around the block. He tends to his business straight away and pulls a bit on leash as we head back towards the yard for some playtime in the grass. This is where Wilbur thrives. He play bows to me over and over again, leaps and bounds with a favorite, stuffed carrot, and gleefully chases a fuzzy, yellow ball. “Wlllilburrrrr! Oh I love you, sweet boy,” I find myself saying. But of course, he must get that a lot. Wilbur is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
04/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/29/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/2/17 Look: 1. Dog jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 3. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Jumps up high and hard on the assessor repeatedly. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. 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. Summary: Wilbur displayed a high amount of energy on his assessment, repeatedly jumping up high and hard on the assessor during tag and between other assessment items. He allowed all handling and was social throughout. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Wiblur plays exuberantly with male and female dogs in the care center. He initially displayed the potential to become overaroused during play, though this behavior has not been observed during recent interactions. The behavior department recommends slow introductions between Wilbur and other playful or tolerant dogs. Wilbur should be monitored closely during social settings with other dogs, taking into consideration his potential to become highly aroused during play. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/29/17 During his initial medical exam, Wilbur was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Wilbur so we cannot be certain of hrt behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. During his assessment, he repeatedly jumped up on the assessor high and hard, in a playful manner. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5): Due how high and hard Wilbur jumps when excited, we recommend he be placed in a home without young children. Older children who are comfortable around large, jumping dogs can be considered pending an in depth interaction. Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute any frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended. _X_Social hyper-arousal: Wilbur became quickly aroused during tag, jumping up high and hard on the assessor. It is recommended that all interactions with Wilbur take place in a calm manner, structured manner, and that he be rewarded with treats and praise for remaining calm in the presence of people running or moving quickly around him. Positive reinforcement, reward based training only is recommended.
