04/25/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: POCKET PITTIE ALERT!! Adorable Miss Amanda gives new meaning to “pretty in pink”…… Proudly wearing a pink scarf to highlight her pretty gray and white coloring, heads turn to watch Amanda as she walks. Adorably tiny, her leash manners are excellent and there’s nothing sweeter than watching a little low rider meatball motor through the park. We (actually she) had so many compliments and people who wanted to meet her, I found myself straightening my clothes to be worthy of the attention. She’s likely housetrained, her coat is as soft as velvet, her little cropped ears very clean, and her tail wags gently as her eyes make soft contact with mine. She poses for photos like a super model, keeping an eye on the treat in my hand. Amanda does that sideways sit that always steals my heart, and she loves to snuggle close and give kisses. A belly rub is a bonus as she wiggles in delight! On our way back to the building we stop and talk to another volunteer walking a dog, and Amanda sits quietly by my side waiting. Good girl Amanda! As we walk she checks up with me, and when I tell her she’s a ‘good girl’, her tail wags hard in delight. SO cute. Off leash she does funny little hops as she chases a ball, but doesn’t retrieve. In my lap for some cuddles and kisses, I promise Amanda a forever home. Please help me make my promise to her come true. Ask to meet her today.
04/26/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Amanda came into our center as a stray on 4/24/2015. She walks nicely on leash with no pulling while on her relief walk and walking into the SAFER assessment room. She was social and gently solicited attention, rolling on her back for belly rubs. Amanda jumped up to lick the assessor’s face during Look item. She stood still and accepted touch for Sensitivity. Amanda followed at the end of leash for Tag item with soft body. She lifted her head out of the food bowl after a bit of pressure. Amanda played with the toy momentarily but relinquished it easily. Amanda approached helper dog with tail above spine level and ears erect. The Behavior Team feels Amanda would do well in an Average home. Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. 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 at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed. Food 2. Dog follows the dish with her tail down. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek. Toy 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks and mouths, then walks away. 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 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body soft, tail well above spine level, ears forward.
04/29/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Amanda is not very tolerant of other dogs greeting and will correct a polite dog when he is greeting. She has a bit of a stiff body while in the yard.
5/13 update: At an event it was noticed that while Amanda is social and comfortable with people one-on-one, she appears to become stressed by large crowds and becomes tense, fixates, and hard barks at other dogs when in close proximity. Due to these observations as well as her behavior off-leash with other dogs in the care center, we suggest an adopter with some dog experience who can keep Amanda comfortable and under threshold.
