05/16/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: It would be understandable if this stunning, velveteen dog thinks his name is “Awwww!” because that’s what everyone says immediately upon meeting him. He is tooth-achingly sweet, to the dogs he meets in the back, to all the humans who stop to fawn over him, and he cannot get enough human affection. During a rousing game of ball–and he is in the big leagues of ball talent–he always stops mid-fetch for a quick pat before carrying on. Gleason appears to be housetrained, or at least extremely conscientious about keeping his kennel clean no matter how long he has to wait to go out. Soft, sporty, loving, neat, and oh-so-very-wonderful, Gleason’s only missing attribute is a home to call his own. Please, gift him that and a few extra bowls of food to fatten him up and he will be a perfect dog! Another volunteer writes: So gorgeous with his little pouty underlip, soft coat and happily wagging tail, Mr. Gleason makes friends where ever he goes. He’s a bit too skinny, so he is being fed an extra meal each day to help fatten him up, and I can imagine when I can no longer see his ribs or hip bones how majestically stunning he will be. He’s elegant, lanky and loves to cuddle in an available lap, giving kisses and happily enjoying those returned. Throw a ball into the mix and this is one happy fellow! He poses for pictures with bright eyes, alternating between giving me his serious look or a big smile. A bit of TLC will make Gleason splendiferous…. he’s awesome and waiting to meet you. Another volunteer writes: A big lap dog, snuggly and sweet….it’s his favorite thing to do…..even more than playing ball which he likes too. He also likes to participate in play groups, greeting other dogs politely but not necessarily engaging in play. Gleason’s kennel card is filled with accolades from volunteers who have met him….won’t you add yours ( as his forever parent) to the chorus?
05/13/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Gleason pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. He was overexcited during handling, jumping up, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Gleason was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. Gleason took the toy and the rawhide with a soft body language. He was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. 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 him occupied for a while. Look: 3.
