When outside, she gets nervous and tends to bark a lot. During intake she was very active and anxious, a lot of barking, allowed to be pet and calmed down once petted. When on a leash she tends to rattle around it but tends to calm down after her twist and turns. Also allowed to be picked up.
07/01/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Frankie, my golden girl. Petite, gorgeously groomed, surrendered by her owner as her person is ill and can no longer take care of her. Good with all the people and kids in the family and understandably confused and upset about why she’s in a strange place without them. We chat for a minute before I leash her, and when I do she stands up easily and hops down. Once outside she pees forever, showing off her housetraining skills. Her leash manners are good, and at a corner she sat while we waited for the light to change. Off leash in the yard she came when called, and then sat close to my legs rolling in for hugs. Leaning into me she loved having her ears stroked (they feel like velvet), and gave me a sweet smile. If I stopped petting her she would give me a quick nose poke to continue on. So sweet! Described as playful and energetic by her former family, sweet Frankie is hoping to find a new family to love. When I passed her kennel later in the day she was sitting up in front of her door taking in the activity around her. A major step for this little girl. She has many major steps in front of her, and I’m hoping that they will be with the love and support of her new person or family. Ask to meet Miss Frankie today.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Frankie walks with a low fearful body language on leash. She makes her body look small by hunching over and getting low to the ground. He holds his tail tucked, sometimes rapidly wagging it back and forth and do not let the assessors handle her. During the look Frankie was uncomfortable and exposes her front teeth. We stopped the handling part for safety reason and move on with the resources. Frankie did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. She was not interested in toys or rawhide. She does not approach other dog, attempts to exit. Frankie was surrender to us. According to her previous owner she is playful and energetic at home with her kids and family. When she is outside, she gets nervous and tends to bark a lot”. 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.
