05/27/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Cinnamon is a complicated girl: a petite powerhouse in one moment, a shy young thing the next. She waits quietly in her cage, perfectly manicured feet placed politely in front of her. She moves her bobblehead from side to side as others pass, her eyes wide. Clearly she is lost in this new environment. But when the leash appears and her cage clicks open, up pops Cinnamon and off we go. At last something familiar! This is what she loves: the walk, the activity, the chance to show off her creamy cocoa coat, muscular little body, and babyface. Everything intrigues Cinnamon. As we walk, she stops at every new attraction, observing respectfully and moving on with a vocal prompt. Cinnamon is strong on leash but easily managed. Free in the backyard, she sticks close. When it’s picture-taking time she avoids the camera and jumps up to gently offer a hug and demure kiss. When the ball bounces, her tiny ears perk up, her paw rises, but… what now? I leave Cinnamon for a moment, and return to find her hiding under a bench, her tender face wrinkled with concern. Once she hears my voice and sees the leash again, she wiggles out, her eyes softening as she bounces toward me. In that moment Cinnamon wins my heart. My new girlfriend arrived with her boyfriend Pitcher (#A1037303) and baby Madison (#A1037307), due to owner eviction. Unfortunately there is no other information available about this darling girl. We can assume that she is likely housetrained and enjoys the company of other dogs. We can also assume that Cinnamon hasn’t been exposed to much in her short life. But she is brave, with a curiosity about everything that is truly endearing. In the patient, loving hands of someone she can trust, Cinnamon will gain enough confidence to surely thrive.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cinnamon came to our center as an owner surrender along with two other dogs, one being her puppy. She was friendly upon intake, licking the admissions counselor’s hand and gently taking treats. Cinnamon walked nicely on leash for her relief walk, no pulling. She allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands for Look item. Cinnamon wagged her tail slightly during Sensitivity item, leaning into the assessor and accepted the touch. She followed at the end of leash for Tag game, body soft and settled easily at the end. Cinnamon sniffed the assessor’s hand during both Squeeze attempts at her front paw, but did not pull it away. She allowed the food dish to be moved forward during Food item, stiffening her body as her cheeks were pushed with moderate pressure out of the dish. However, when taking the food dish away at the end of item, Cinnamon growled. She had minimal interest in both Toy and Rawhide. During Social Time with other dogs she does not know, Cinnamon was scared but tolerant. Due to the growling behavior displayed during Food item assessment, the Behavior Team feels Cinnamon would do best in an Experienced home with no children. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with ears back and body neutral. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still, leaning in, and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is slightly wagging with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog sniffs hand, does not pull paw back. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog sniffs hand, does not pull paw back. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed or back. Food 4. Dog growls. Toy 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks and mouths, then walks away. Rawhide 1. Minimal interest. Dog – dog 2. When off leash with other dogs Cinnamon is scared but tolerant of the helper dogs solicitations. She is more comfortable exploring her surroundings.
