08/17/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: What else would you name the sweetest girl in the building besides Cookie? And sweet she is! Kisses, hugs, a tail that never stops wagging, and zoomies when we first get to the park make up the sweet girl that is Cookie! I laughed at her zoomies, and once those were done she flopped down and over for a belly rub, nuzzling her face into my legs for petting. Adorable doesn’t begin to describe her. Intake staff noted that Cookie is “friendly, affectionate and sweet” and they nailed it! She’s all of that and more. Cookie has some spots of alopecia on her body so will need some good nutrition to help her look as gorgeous as she feels. Fun and playful, she’s puppy bouncy, jumping up for kisses, likes to play tug with the leash and loves toys. Life with Cookie will never be dull, and I guarantee that she’ll put a smile on your face from the moment you meet her. Cookie romped with an equally playful dog in her first group so may do well in a home with another dog. She seems to be housetrained, enjoys treats and takes them gently and will be easy to train with positive reinforcement training. An absolute brindlicious delight whose love of life and all good things will charm the socks off you, she’s hoping you’ll stop by to meet her today.
08/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cookie pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. Cookie was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. She was a bit excitable jumping on the assessor and grabbing at the leash with a soft body language but was not difficult to distract her. Cookie showed minimal interest in the toy during the resources portion of the assessment. Cookie needs a significant amount of exercise, mental stimulation. She did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an Average home where force-free based training can be provided to help Cookie adjust more comfortably to her new environment as well as basic obedience. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) she is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy 1. No interest. Dog-to-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Cookie engages in exuberant play. The behavior team feels that with proper introduction at the pace of both dogs, Cookie may be placed into a home with another playful dog. She arrived as a stray, so in home behavior with dogs is unknown.
