02/06/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Well hellllooooooo, handsome! I’ve never been fortunate enough to see an actual kodiak in person but if they’re anything close to as majestic or as stunning as our 2 year-old Kodiak, well then grab me the next seat aboard Alaskan Air. As if Kodiak wasn’t magnificent enough with his obvious bulldog heritage and gorgeous black and white face, he throws in one more way to hypnotize you to the core – one blue eye and one brown! Yes while one of Kodiak’s incredible orbs is warm as the summer earth the other is bright blue, blue as the Bering Sea. Kodiak is relatively new to our company and therefore still finding his way. While he welcomes a warm coat fastened about his neck, doesn’t shy away from my leash, and is happy to receive pets and affection, he doesn’t seek any of it out. Not yet. After some time together free in a pen this handsome and curious devil begins to follow me about. He keeps one eye on me (the blue one I think) as I search for new toys or dig about for treats. Speaking of, he’s not a huge fan of either, not yet. Our black and white bear is still exploring his tundra, still feeling the world out, still mapping his course. But that’s alright. I’m happy to give him all the time in the world. He is clearly bright and sensitive, and with a face like that, I’d turn over the world to him and never look back. From where I sit time, patience, love, and care are all the ingredients you’ll need to turn this Kodiak into a giant teddy bear. But don’t take my word for it, come see for yourself. Kodiak is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
02/02/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/1/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/5/17 Summary: Kodiak growled while in the assessment room while he was having a collar put on him. He then froze and hard stared at the assessor and assistant when the approached him. Out of concern for his stress level and for safety, we feel that Kodiak is not a good candidate for a handling assessment at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with a female dog Kodiak is tense and seems a bit unsure. He will lick the greeter dog from behind and will not engage in play when solicited. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/2/17 During his initial medical exam, Kodiak was tense but allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Kodiak so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. 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: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13):Due to how uncomfortable Kodiak is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Kodiak has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. He has growled while being handled. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable, adult only, experienced, home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Kodiak gives clear warnings when he is uncomfortable, freezing and growling, but if these warnings are not respected there is a potential to escalate to higher-level warning behaviors and possible fear-based aggression. It is important to move slowly with Kodiak, to build positive associations (treats/toys/praise), and to allow Kodiak to initiate interactions with new people. He should never be forced to greet or to interact if he is not comfortable and soliciting attention.)
02/03/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
2/3: When off leash with a female dog Kodiak is tense and seems a bit unsure. He will lick the greeter dog from behind and will not engage in play when solicited. 2/4: Kodiak is, again, tense and will follow the greeter dog around attempting to mount her. He ceases with handler correction but is not offered correction from the female. He moves away when solicited with play.
