A volunteer writes: Shy and sweet. So happy to come out of his kennel for a walk to show off his housetraining skills and great leash manners. What a joy! A little peanut who didn’t mind playing dress up, Flush is quiet and calm and clearly well taken care of before joining us. I love his graying snout – a sign of wisdom and experience and his good manners demonstrate just that. Happy to explore our pen, he poses for photos, and is happy roaming around sniffing all the new scents. He’s hoping his former family finds him if he’s lost, but if not, someone is going to be very lucky to welcome this handsome, quiet little fellow into their family.
Flush came to our center as an owner surrender. He growled at police when they first approached him but later came out of his kennel easily. Flush appeared a bit cautious upon first entering the SAFER assessment room, but was easy to position for tactile assessment items. Flush allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, body soft. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, body soft. Flush followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body soft. He had no response to both paw Squeezes. Flush required a bit of pressure to lift his head out of the Food dish. He had no interest in Toy or Rawhide. Off leash with other dogs, Flush greets politely. The Behavior Team feels Flush would do best in an Experienced home. He may initially benefit from a calm, quiet, structured environment so he can relax and know what to expect in his new home.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position 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 does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek.
Toy 1: No interest.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Flush greets politely.
When off leash with other dogs, Flush greets politely. He appears to be sexually motivated and repeatedly tries to mount, despite correction from the female greeter.
