PET PROFILE MEMO
No Pet Profile Memo
A volunteer writes: So handsome in his gleaming orange coat, Mr. Vinny was thrilled to be out for a chance to go potty, get a hug and play some ball. It was hot in the yard, and after his hug, he grabbed the ball and found a sliver of shade in which to lie down. Smart boy!!! It was obvious that playing ball is his thing, but after giving chase to the first couple of throws, and after careful consideration he deemed it just to hot to run. Gotta love a dog who knows himself! Friendly and sweet joining me on the bench for a couple of hugs, taking some treats gently but spitting them out when not to his liking, Vinny went back into the sliver of shade. I kept our time outside short as Vinny is not a hot weather boy!! Handsome and looking like he was beautifully cared for before joining us, Vinny would love a new person or family with whom to play ball, and get a snuggle or two or three. And lots of shade on a very hot day would be nice!
06/04/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Vinny pulls hard on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. He was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Vinny was easy to handle when chewing on toys. He rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test, but showed no aggression. Vinny did not show any concern during the behavior assessment but because of his profile the behavior feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. 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.) 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. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches the helper dog by rushing in with her tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip long Helper: A1071949
GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Vinny is easy to remove/place back into his kennel and has shown social behaviors with multiple different handlers. The “transfer door only” sign ok to be removed from his kennel.
Vinny is easy in and out of his kennel and sniffs the ground his entire walk. He wallks nicely and politely sniffs a female in an adjacent pen. 5/22 update: Vinny relieves himself immediately once outside. He sniffs the ground and does not attempt to engage with the handler. 5/23 update: Vinny pulls hard on a leash but is social with the handler. He gently approaches to sniff and allows petting. 5/24 update: Vinny walks nicely once he is able to relieve himself. He continues to sniff the yard and allow brief petting. 5/26 update: Vinny seems housebroken. He is interested in his surroundings, checks in with the handler often and is responsive when called. 5/27 update: Vinny is easy out of his kennel and relieves himself immediately once outside. He appears to be dog selective. Some dogs he ignores, others he pulls toward/gets tense and in one instance he barked and lunged at another dog on-leash. He is comfortable with the handler and will accept touch and continue to check in with them throughout the walk. 5/28 update: Vinny pulls when first out to relieve himself then walks comfortably. He doesn’t seek affection but will wag when pet. 5/29 update: Vinny relieves himself immediately and pulls hard on the leash. 5/31 update: Vinny is taken out of a short walk due to extreme heat. He relives himself and does not attempt to engage with the handler. 6/1 update: Vinny pulls hard toward other dogs; he is tense and not easily distracted. He is taken back inside after he relieves himself.
