05/22/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Savannah is a city known for its Southern charm and this Savannah is a dog that should be known for her every kind of charm…what a wonderful girl!! Her entire body lights up when we encounter new people to say ‘hi” to. She is quiet in her cage (aside from the thumping of her tail when I approach), has great leash manners and seems housebroken. She looks like she’s been a mom, seems interested in other dogs we pass, and in playgroup has even appointed herself “sheriff” to keep everything under control! When I offer her a stuffed toy she didn’t seem too impressed at first, but once she discovered it made a honking sound she carried it around like a treasured egg. She has the sweetest eyes and always makes very strong, soft eye contact. She’s very affectionate and will gently prop her paws up on me and it seems like her entire world is just us. Savannah is really something special, please come see for yourself at Brooklyn ACC!
05/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – BEGINNER
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Savannah came to us as a stray so we don’t have any behavior information other than what has been observed in the shelter environment. She was very interested in interacting with the assessor when entering the behavior room. Savannah allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining soft body language. She did not engage in play during the tag interaction but followed the assessor with soft body language. She proved easy to handle when chewing the toy item keeping a firm grip with loose body language as the assessor attempted to take it with the assess-a-hand. We believe that Savannah can go to a home with a beginner adopter. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy. Savannah was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Savannah greets softly and wanders the pen, becoming bouncy at times.
