05/16/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/16/15 18:18 Bella is an approximately 2 year old APBT female. Her daughter is Blue. She is being surrendered because the owner has too many pets in the home. Her last vet visit was in 2014. The owner was made aware of the three possible outcomes of adoption, rescue organization, or humane euthanasia. Around strangers, Bella barks but is friendly and outgoing. She loves attention and loves to play with the children and with the adults in the home. She loves to play with the other dogs but may become territorial or aggressive with the male dogs in the home. She has not bitten any body or other animals. She goes potty both indoors and outdoors. She barks alot when she hears knocking on the door or loud noises. Bella is not bothered when you try to touch her food bowl or her treats/toys. Bella does not do well with baths or nail trimming. She barks when an unfamiliar person approaches. The owner describes her as friendly, affectionate, confident, independent and has a very high activity level. She demands alot of attention and loves to play. She is very protective of the family. She has been mostly kept indoors and loves to sleep on the bed with the owner. When left alone she is well behaved.She loves to go on brisk walks and pulls very hard on the leash. When Bella was with her daughter and her owners, she had a loose wiggly body and wagging tail while I pet her, scanned her (positive-should trace to owner), and switched her leashes. When I brought her to the back, she faced the door and whined, standing in place at the end of her leash and moving her paws quickly as if stepping in place. She was moving around quickly but appeared tense and was panting. She allowed me to collar her and put her in her kennel.
05/19/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Ms. Perky Pants was surrendered along with her daughter Blue by her owner due to landlord issues, but you’d never know she wasn’t perfectly at home! With her rabbity ears, oh-so-soft bunny fur, and petite body, Bella’s a dainty looker, but she’s got great spirit–the word “dignified” comes to mind until she slathers you with kisses and does a kind of tap dance of happiness. Bella rocked her behavior test–she’s fantastic in every way–and is holding forth in adoptions, waiting for her perfect dance partner!
05/18/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bella was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. She had soft body language throughout the assessment. During tag, Bella followed at the end of the leash with a soft body and approached the Assessor in a friendly manner once moving ceased. Bella had minimal interest in food, smelled, licked and then turned away. She kept a firm grip on the toy but her body was loose and wiggly and she had minimal interest in the rawhide. Bella was relinquished to the care center due to a housing issue. Her previous owner stated she is friendly, outgoing, and always soliciting attention. The owner also reported she is fearful of water, bags, shoes and many other things; however none of this fear was displayed during the assessment. It was also mentioned that she does not do well with nail trimmings or baths but there was no elaboration on what behaviors she displays. During the assessment, Bella was very social and friendly toward the Assessor and showed no concerning behaviors. The Behavior Department believes Bella can go to an average home that understands she may need time to acclimate to new environments. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. 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 likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Dog follows with her tail wagging, and comes toward the Assessor in a friendly manner when the Assessor ceases moving. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are back. Food 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks, then walks away. Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly.
