05/05/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/05/15 18:34 Ginger is an approximately 3 year old APBT. The person who brought her in said that his roomate is the owner. The roomate moved out a few days ago and never came back and never called. He also said that he would like to keep her but he cant have her in the apartment. During the intake, Ginger was very shy but allowed to be collared, scanned (negative), and leashed. The man helped put her in the kennel because she is shy with strangers.
05/09/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Gorgeously white with ginger colored accents (but you knew that 🙂 ), this sweet girl can be a bit shy as she’s in a new place with new sounds and unfamiliar people. Nonetheless she never loses her big beautiful smile, her rabbit ears reach for the sky, and her eyes twinkle with sweetness and fun. Likely housetrained she goes potty as soon as we’re out the door, and may benefit from a harness as she pulls on the leash. Off leash in the back she poses for pictures with that gorgeous smile, and comes when I call her. Greeting an elderly Chihuahua in the next pen she’s soft and gentle as she goes nose to nose with him. She seems to like other dogs in general, responding appropriately to all we met. Low key, friendly and calm, Ginger is beautifully groomed, her weight is perfect for her size, and she’s gentle with taking treats. She did beautifully on her behavior assessment, with the team recommending that she go to an experienced home who understands her potential shyness and will let her blossom at her own pace. When I took my leash down off the hook Ginger became all wiggly and excited as clearly to her a leash means, ‘yay, we’re going out’. Sadly for us it means she’s going in, but when she hopped back into her kennel I promised her that we’d do out best to find her a new home with people to love her. Won’t you help me make my promise to her come true? Ask to meet Ginger today.
05/07/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ginger walks calmly on leash. She was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. Ginger was shy and nervous during handling, with a fearful body language. She becomes frightened during the tag interaction; tail tucked, and tries to exit room. Ginger was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. She does not approach other dog, attempts to exit. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter. Ginger is somewhat fearful; she needs time to warm up to the handler. Ginger needs an adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 3. Dog repeatedly turns quickly away when touched, or repeatedly spins toward the touch, and repeatedly tries to exit. Dog may be crouching, tail is tucked, mouth closed, body stiff. Squeeze 1: 1.
