A volunteer writes: Bumper wanted me to be sure to tell you that he’s currently a Yankees fan, thus wearing a Yankees coat, but he’ll happily change his team allegiance to whatever team you like! Isn’t that nice of him? Already a volunteer favorite, Bumper is so emaciated his spine shows, you can count his ribs and his hip bones jut out. He’s being fed an extra meal each day to help him gain some weight. Nothing has dampened his sweet personality however, he’s affectionate, friendly, loves meeting new people, loves nestling in an available lap and giving kisses. Staff told me that when he was out with them the previous day and it started to rain he went between someone’s legs and stayed there in an attempt to stay dry. How smart is he!! Bumper showed off his housetraining skills and good leash manners when we took a brief walk, played with a toy for a few minutes, takes treats gently as hungry as he clearly is and is as gentle and sweet as it gets. He’s a puppy who hasn’t seen the best that mankind has to offer but we can change all that for him. He’s ready to forget the past and look forward to a bright, happy and well fed future. Who’s going to be the lucky person to make that happen for him?
Bumper walks calmly on leash. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Bumper was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He took the toy away but had soft body language.
Bumper did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
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: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful but unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends. Dog is likely crouching, may have long lip or lip lick.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place her body between you and the toy.
When off leash with other dogs Bumper is uncomfortable, avoiding interaction and staying near the handler.
