03/09/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: No one warms up a snowy day like Emelinda! It’s impossible to keep a straight face as she dashes about the yard, tail wagging and ears flying, romping with her ball before tilting an hilariously snow-covered snout up for some treats. Emelinda’s full-grown but only just and her eyes still shine with the innocent and mischievous spirit of a puppy whose main aim in life is to play play play! Whether digging, kicking or catching, she loves that tennis ball like it was her best friend and though she enjoys a good game of keep-away, I can take it right out of her mouth with no issues at all. In her enthusiasm she will pull when on leash but remains responsive and quite easy to handle and does seem to be very much house trained. In between play dates she meets fellow dogs with friendly interest, appreciates a nice stand-up hug from her human and off-leash in a group she’s (surprise, surprise!) playful and gets along well with the other pups. Emelinda is a good-hearted girl with a whole lot of joie de vivre and she’d love to find a forever family who shares her passion for sports and the great outdoors. Why wait for the snow to melt and spring training season to start? Join Team Emelinda today and everyone’s a winner!
03/05/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Emelinda pulls hard on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. She was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. Emelinda was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. Emelinda was not interested in toys but took the rawhide away but had soft body language. Emelinda is an active dog she need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that she can go to an experienced adopter that is willing to provide her long walks someone that loves to run or walk long distance. This dog is extremely high energy dog he needs a few toys that require him to think. Toys like Kong’s and ice Cubes load with treats to keeping her occupied for a while. Look: 3.

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.

A volunteer updates:
Emelinda’s been with us for a while but she’s exactly the same happy, friendly and ball-loving girl I played with in the snow and her delightful spirit shines as brightly as ever. Emmy (yes, we’re on a nickname basis now!) is looking great, her coat gleams in the sun and her sweet smile and perky ears are so endearing. She waits patiently for a throw of the ball, always letting me take it right from her soft mouth, and I can easily picture her enjoying hours of fun in the sun with her new family. The snow may be long gone but lovely Emelinda is still eagerly awaiting the appearance of a forever home…will Spring bring her dream come true?
