A shelter staff member writes:
Apple Pie is a small Cocker Spaniel mix. She was found as a stray. At intake, Apple Pie was shaking, kept her tail tucked, and she was panting and yawning. She allowed all pettin by the fidner. She allowed handling by the counselor when the counselor approached very slowly. Apple was able to be scanned and collared after warming up. During intake, she also jumped on her finder’s lap and nuzzled his neck.
SAFER: EXPERIENCED HOME, NO CHILDREN
Apple Pie came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. It was reported Apple Pie was shaking with her tail tucked and she was also panting and yawning upon intake. When approaching Apple Pie kennel she growled when going to take her out of her cage. During SAFER Apple Pie came into the assessment room fearful with her tail tucked, she allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Apple Pie quickly turned towards the assessor hand when touch during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Apple Pie was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Apple Pie has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Apple Pie be given the opportunity to interact at their own pace. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Apple Pie is more comfortable and settled in a home environment, so the behavior department feels Apple Pie is suitable for an experience adopter with no children.
