Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper Dog:A1028370 Oatmeal came in as a stray surrender, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. During SAFER Oatmeal was very sociable towards the assessor, and greeted with a loose body posture and tail wag. She allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue, and was playful during the tag interaction. Oatmeal was a bit resistant to being pushed out of the food bowl, but with a bit of pressure applied to her cheek she lifted her head and allowed to the assessor to remove the food without issue. She was easy to handle when engaged with the toys item, but she did not relinquish the toy, and place her body between the assessor and toy. Oatmeal had a firm grip on the rawhide and took it away with stiff body language when the assessor attempted to remove the item. During the dog-dog interaction, Oatmeal was relaxed when greeting, and appeared interested in interacting with the helper dog. The department feels Oatmeal would be best suited for an experienced adopter. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. 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 open for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Squeeze 1 & 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with her tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek. Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is between you and the toy, and she is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. Rawhide: 3. Dog takes rawhide away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is stiff. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip neutral.

A shelter staff member writes: Oatmeal is a beautiful senior pittie who is looking for a great retirement home. Oatmeal does not enjoy being in a kennel so much, but seems much more social and friendly once she is out with you going for a nice calm walk. She does have enlarged mammary glands, possibly due to tumors, and she is going to need a full geriatric workup. Please go online to pull Oatmeal tonight!
