05/12/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: This darling white–shall we say Rubenesque?–pup is aching for a little TLC. She has not had an easy time of it, as evidenced by scars and bruises and general lumps and bumps, but she is nevertheless extremely affectionate and winning. She adores other dogs–just adores them–and is extremely friendly to the people around her, especially if they are attached to a dog with whom she can play. She has the most wonderful demeanor, sleeping in her kennel no matter how loud the ward is, until it’s time to come out and romp, and then doing that so happily. Donegal appears housetrained, walks very nicely on a leash, and is so deserving of a great second act with a friend by her side. We promise she will return the bond in a profound way.
05/12/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Donegal walks calmly on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. Donegal was calm and relaxed during handling. She was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She was not interested in food or toys but she growled and bit the assess-a-hand during the rawhide test. Donegal was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful. Donegal shows some guarding issues during the rawhide test biting the assessor-a-hand. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. 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: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) she is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Food 1. No interest. Toy 1. No interest. Rawhide 5. Dog attempts to bite Dog – dog 1. Dog approaches the helper, soft body, tail neutral, but not playful. Helper: A1035005
