07/10/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/10/15 15:49 Enchilada and Jalapeno were found tethered to a fence at a park with a single leash, clipped to Jalapeno’s collar and looped through Enchilada’s. Their finders report that they were super friendly with them and easy to walk here, friendly with all of the dogs and people they met. Enchilada and Jalapeno had loose, wiggly bodies, wagging tails, and open mouths during all of their intake and handling-scan (+), collar, switching leashes, petting, positioning for pictures, picking up and putting in kennels. They leaned against us while we pet them. When we offered them bowls of water, they drank and then lied next to each other in their spilled water. They took treats gently. They were quiet and appeared relaxed in their kennels.

A volunteer writes: Recipe for a perfect Enchilada…Step 1: Take one chunky, cuddly, beautiful dog. Stuff full of friendly, silly energy and wonderful social skills then release in a yard with plenty of tennis balls. Step 2: Chase, praise and play fetch with your Enchilada until happy panting tongue appears. Retire to a bench and allow dog to stretch herself out beside you for petting and snuggles. Step 3: Massage well, making sure to cover all areas from head to belly then remove ball from mouth and repeat Step 2 until Enchilada is ‘tuckered out’. Step 4: Allow dog to greet other pups with enthusiasm, do not be alarmed if nose kisses and butt wiggles occur, this is natural in any good Enchilada. Step 5: Return easily to kennel. Enchilada may remain by door and watch you leave with sad puppy eyes and some vocalizing. This is natural in a family-style dog and can only be rectified by liberal applications of TLC in a forever home. Step 6: Present Enchilada, complete with stellar behavior evaluation, to the general public and wait for an equally perfect adopter to realize she is just what they’ve been missing. Step 7: Watch as dog walks out the front door with a lucky new family and smile happily, your perfect Enchilada is now complete!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Enchilada came to our center with another dog when a member of the public found them tied together on a fence in the park. Finder reports she was friendly towards strangers and other dogs, and very easy to walk. During intake, Enchilada had loose, wiggly body and wagging tail. She leaned against admissions counselor, open mouth, taking treats gently. Enchilada walked nicely on her relief walk, no pulling. She appeared anxious throughout the SAFER assessment, whining in between items, at times jumping her front paws onto the desk. Enchilada jumped up and licked assessor’s face during Look item. She accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, whining, tail wagging. Enchilada was focused on other stimuli during Tag game, unresponsive to the assessor. She had minimal interest in Food and Toy, no interest in Rawhide. Enchilada approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, ears back, tail at spine level. The Behavior Team feels Enchilada would do well in an Average home. She may benefit from obedience classes to learn not to jump up and strategies for quelling any anxious behaviors if they were to manifest in the home. Look: 1. Dog jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is wagging, whining. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game with coaxing. She is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Food. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks, then walks away. Toy 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks and mouths, then walks away. Rawhide 1. No interest. Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral.
