04/03/2012 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: What a perfect little boy Chulo is! He was well brought up by his owner who had to relinquish him to the Care Center because of housing issues. Chulo is a gentle and calm character who seems very much like a family pet, one who could live with other dogs and kids. He welcomes his caretaker at his kennel door and sits to be leashed. He walks beautifully on the leash and might be housetrained. He is nice to other dogs met in the street and does not respond to those who look for trouble. Chulo is playful. He plays with the ball in the backyard and retrieves it. He is quite affectionate and sweet. He loves to be petted and kissed. Chulo is at the Manhattan Care Center. Come and see this little gem and take him home.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chulo lived with two adults and children ages 18, 13, and infant. The owner stated Chulo is relaxed, affectionate and respectful towards everyone he meets, and was reported to be very sociable towards dogs he encounters with. The Owner mentioned that Chulo will try to chase cats he sees outdoors. His activity was said to be a medium, and he was reported to be well behaved when home alone. It was noted that Chulo allowed his owner to touch his food bowl while eating as well as take objects away from his mouth. Chulo was reported to be house broken, and knows commands in English and Spanish. At intake it was noted that Chulo was whining and barking uncontrollably, and became nervous and tense when handled. During SAFER Chulo was very sociable, and maintained a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue, and was distracted during the tag interaction. During the resources portion of the assessment Chulo was a bit resistant when pushed out of the food bowl, but with a bit of pressure applied to his cheek, he lifted his head and allowed the assessor to remove the food. He only showed minimal interest in the toy items, and he was easy to handle when engaged with the rawhides, but did not relinquish the rawhide to the assessor. Chulo appears to be sociable and has not shown any behavioral concerns while in the care center, so the department feels he can be suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience. 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 stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (needed coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog quickly pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. 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. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Rawhide: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy or rawhide, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling
