A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: She’s tiny, she’s gorgeous, and her coat is like a rich dark chocolate marble cake! Did I already say gorgeous? Briana was happy to meet a person with a leash which means a walk and a chance to potty outside. A bit zig zaggy on leash, she doesn’t pull, took care of ‘business’ right away, was interested in dogs seen in the street and didn’t mind me outfitting her in a coat. Off leash in the yard Briana bounced after a ball at first, but then decided my treats were more interesting than chasing a ball. Briana takes treats with the very edge of her teeth, so so gently. Briana was surrendered by her person, and we’re told she doesn’t guard her things, is relaxed and playful with other dogs, and is friendly and outgoing to strangers. Briana is understandably concerned and worried about her former family and her shy behavior with both people and other dogs reflects that concern. The Urban Dictionary defines Briana perfectly: “The name Briana means strength. Briana’s do not even know that they are beautiful, that is also why they don’t have to wear makeup. Totally awesome, very random, adventurous, smart yet uber gullible at times.” Our little marble cake girl needs a slow approach, a soft voice and gentle touch and she’ll be giving hugs and kisses in no time. She’s in adoptions waiting to meet you.

Toy: 1. No interest.
Summary: Briana came into the assessment room nervous and timid, she was a bit social but needed a lot of coaxing and a slow approach.
PLAY GROUP :
Briana’s previous owner reported that she has lived with another dog and was relaxed and playful around them.
3/6: When off leash at the Care Center, Briana avoids greeting the novel male dog. Her posture is tucked, and hackles raised. When he does approach her for a muzzle greet, Briana offers an appropriate signal that she is uncomfortable- lip curl. She mostly keeps to herself the remainder of her session.
4/5: Briana is fearful when introduced to the male helper dog. She approaches and sniffs briefly when he is turned away. She tenses and backs off when approached face to face.
4/6: Briana allows greeting from a polite male dog, following to sniff. When he turns around to engage she avoids him.
Date of intake: 5-Mar-2018
Summary: Brianna was nrvous, and would hide under the owner.
Date of initial: 6-Mar-2018
Summary: Brianna was calm and allowed exam.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: ADULT ONLY HOME
Recommendations: No children (under 13)
Recommendations comments: No children: Due to how uncomfortable Briana is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most
beneficial at this time.
Potential challenges: Fearful
Potential challenges comments: Fearful: Briana has shown high levels of fear in the care center in each interaction, though she manages her stress well and has not escalated to warning signs. She needs a very slow approach and the ability to warm up to new people and new environments at her own pace. Briana should be permitted to initiate interactions and solicit attention when she feels comfortable, rather than being forced to interact.
