04/12/15 16:08 During the intake, she was very sweet. She had a soft wiggly body, a wagging tail that was not up, and soft eyes. She took treats very gently and was eager to be petted. She allowed handling and showed no signs of aggression.
04/18/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: This chunky little girl is a delight who was thrilled to be out for a walk and go potty. She peed endlessly….enough to raise the Hudson River by 5 inches! Her leash manners are lovely, she sits when she sees my hand near my treat bag, and she’s easy going and sweet. Gorgeously groomed despite having been a mama a couple of times, she’s been loved well enough to have been slightly overfed. Rubenesque, pleasantly plump….call her whatever you like; she’s stunning, playful, loving and would easily win the title of Miss Congeniality. Her tail wags to all, she gives sweet kisses when sitting on the bench with me, and easily greeted a group of small dogs in play group through the fence. Easily running after a tossed tennis ball she brings it back and hops on the bench to give it a good chew. Bali is an Indian name meaning ‘soldier’, and indeed our Bali is gently soldiering her way through her new situation. Brave, composed, affectionate and oh so easy, Bali is looking for a new home and people to love. I envy the person or family who makes her theirs!
06/01/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
6/1/15 Update: Bali has shown some concerning behavior while in the care center. When coming out of her kennel Bali will bite up the leash. Additonally, when interacting in playgroups if corrected by other dogs she will escalate and use her mouth inappropriately. When corrected by human handler, she will bite at the correctors. At this time we feel it is Bali’s best interested to be placed into a home environment without children that can provide her with positive reinforcement based training to address her overarousal issues. SAFER 4/15/15 Bali pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. Bali was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. She did a lot of jumping up, body checking and played tug-of-war with the leash during tag interaction. Bali did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. She was not interested in rawhide but took the toys away but had soft body language. Bali was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful. Bali is an active dog she need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. Tag: 3. Dog responds with her tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body stiff and body checks the Assessor. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Food 1.

Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog – dog: 1. Dog approaches the helper, soft body, tail neutral, but not playful. Helper:A1032513
04/24/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off-leash, Bali shows a mixed response to human correction, sometimes biting at the interrupters and other times responding appropriately. We have not been able to identify the trigger for the different responses. She may escalate during play when she is corrected. With an intact male dog she was playful and tolerant of his assertive, pushy behavior. 5/7 update: Bali greets politely with a wagging tail, she is bouncy and will run a bit with the other dog but does not engage in play. 5/10 update: Bali is playful but can be overwhelming for some dogs. She will jump on dogs to solicit play but corrects that behavior if reciprocated. 5/17 update: Bali continues to engage in exuberant, rough play. She is becoming more tolerant and correcting appropriately. 5/20 update: Bali continues to engage in rough play with an appropriate female. She may escalate during play when she is corrected. 5/21 update: Bali continues to engage in rough, mouthy play. She may over correct when the other dog corrects her pushiness. 5/24 update: Bali is mouthy and pushy, but can be respectful with a tolerant male.
