04/15/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: She may boast a breathtaking beauty but Avvy is no self-confident diva, just a quiet, unassuming girl who’s shy and sweet and very easy to love. During our date she never cracks a smile but her soft eyes seem to recognize me as a friend and wherever I walk she’s there by my side, a calming presence and the most charmingly well-behaved companion. Avvy comes when called, sits politely on command, mouths treats lightly and allows all handling with no issues. She likes to be softly petted and will settle behind me on the bench quite comfortably, her gorgeous head resting on her white-dipped front paws as she patiently waits for me to make the first move. Once we’re well and truly ‘warmed up’ it’s time for play and Avvy proves to be quite the athlete, running and leaping after the ball like a pro and releasing it back to me with no guarding at all. She pulls a little on leash and is very keen to meet other dogs but while her street and through-the-fence manners are good, Avvy was not friendly in playgroup and a home where she can be a solo pet would probably suit her best. Once upon a time (and not so long ago) she mothered her own litter of pups but now it’s her turn to be the one babied and adored. Avvy longs to be someones beloved darling…could that special someone be you?
04/13/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Avvy was shy and nervous during handling, but had soft body language. She allowed Assessor to position her easily for all tactical handling items. She had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash and approached the Assessor at the end of the game but was crouching and a bit fearful. Avvy was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had neutral body language. She had no interest in toys and minimal interest in rawhide, sniffing it and then walking away. Avvy was brought to the care center as a stray. She was brought in by the police, who described her as very calm, cooperative and seemed friendly. During the assessment Avvy body remained soft but she kept her tail tucked and was somewhat fearful. While Avvy showed no signs of aggression, the Behavior Department recommends that she go to an experienced adopter who understands that she will need some time to warm up. If there are children in the home an in-depth interaction should be conducted before adoption. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body soft, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends. Dog is crouching, may have long lip or lip lick. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek. Toy 1: No interest. Rawhide1: Minimal interest. Dog smells, then turns away. Dog-Dog: Avvy met well at gate with a young male dog, however once off leash with the dog she immediately corrected him and then had no interest in interacting.
