Daniella came into our center as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. During intake, she appeared friendly and allowed all handling. Daniella pulled a bit on her relief walk. She appeared nervous upon entering the SAFER assessment room, but warmed up quickly to assessor and assistant, leaning in and nuzzling. Daniella allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, body neutral. She stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity, body soft, ears back. Leaning into assessor at end of item. She followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, wagging tail, settling easily at end. Daniella did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts, leaning in to assessor. She showed no interest in Toy. When off leash with other dogs Daniella is uncomfortable, walking through the pen with her tail tucked. She allows brief greeting but eventually offers correction and bares teeth. Due to her nervousness with new surroundings, the Behavior Team feels Daniella would do best with an Experienced adopter. She may benefit from a slow introduction/slow approach at first so she can warm up at her own pace. She may benefit initially from a calm, quiet, structured environment so she knows what to expect and can relax. Once comfortable, Daniella was affectionate and social.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is down, body soft, mouth closed, ears back, leans into assessor at end.
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, tail wag.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are back.
Toy 1. No interest.
When off leash with other dogs Daniella is uncomfortable, walking through the pen with her tail tucked. She allows brief greeting but eventually offers correction and bares teeth.
11/17: Daniella is uncomfortable with greeting from a calm, female dog. She initially growls when approached. She is tense when approached a second time. Daniella corrects prolonged approach from the other dog.
11/18: Daniella allows greeting from a polite male dog. She spends time exploring her surroundings.
11/19: Daniella continues to allow greeting but mostly keeps to herself.
11/20 update: Daniella greets and is interested in a calm female and will explore the yard with her. She eventually begins to solicit play with a calmer male, offering play bows in attempts to engage him in running play.
