06/07/16 20:17 Zaboo allowed me to pet him, pick him up, collar him and take his pictures, he showed no signs of aggression.
Zaboo came to us as a stray so we don’t have any behavior information other than what has been observed in the shelter environment. He was very interested in exploring his surroundings though he appears to have a severe visual impairment as he continuously bumped into the wall. All items were vocalized before conducting so as to not startle him when actually touching him. He maintained soft body language throughout all portions of the assessment. He displayed no interest in the toy on this portion of the assessment. Zaboo did not engage or follow the assessor during the tag interaction and did not follow the assessor which may be due to his poor vision. We believe that Saboo can go to an adopter with an average amount of dog experience.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (needs coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy 1: No interest.
6/9: When off leash with other dogs, Zaboo roams the pen and ignores greetings.
