A volunteer writes: Introducing Sable! Sable is a tiny pocket pittie with a big personality! One of her ears perpetually stands straight up and one is flopped over. It almost looks as if her left ear is “broken” and it has a crease where it folds over. But “broken” looks adorable on this little gal! She is so cute and wiggly and has the sweetest puppy face. Sable was more than thrilled to go on a walk with me, and when I tried to play with her in the yard, all she wanted to do was solicit my attention. When I would speak in a high-pitched voice, she’d do a little zoomie and come right back to me. Sable was found with her buddy, and possibly littermate, Sport. When these two get together it’s nothing but shananigans. They’re like two little blurs, wiggling and wagging, getting all tangled up, rolling over each other and begging whoever is with them for some attention, or even better, some treats. Sable will do well in an active home, that has the time for some training and plenty of extra love to give. Come meet her today!
A shelter staff member writes: Sable was found running loose with her companion friend Sport (A1030155). It is unclear if they knew each other before or met up on the street. Client and his freinds were passing by and saw the 2. He called to them and they came right over and allowed all handling. Client knows 3 possible outcomes (pts, adoption, rescue)
At intake Sable was very attention seeking, loose, and allowed all handling.
SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Sable came to us as a stray on 3/17/15. Upon intake she was reported of having very loose body language and allowed all handling. She was very interested in interacting with the assessor during the assessment, and had friendly body language. Sable proved very easy to handle and allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile items of the assessment without displaying any signs of aggression. She was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. She proved easy to handle when chewing on both the toy and rawhide items on this portion of the assessment. The behavior department feels that Sable can go to an average or experienced home.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, dog licks hands while lips are long.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. She indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog becomes easily distracted.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with her tail down, body a bit stiff. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek.
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.
Rawhide: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the rawhide.
Dog-Dog: When off leash with other dogs, Sable plays well with a larger dogs and is able to handle herself well in play.
