A bit shy and fearful
05/01/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Hanson reminds me of a very dear little black dog I met few weeks ago…and who had gone through a fire…Shy and gentle and so attuned to his caretaker. They could be brothers…Hanson follows me, docile and tail between his legs. He is really cute, petite and much too thin. His coat is shiny, though, perfect and he owns the most attractive sparkling white feet. He seems to be housetrained and does not mark his territory. He is very obedient, comes when I call him, sits at once for treats and just looks like the perfect little choir boy… We do not need to check Ancestry.com to learn that Hanson has a Boxer up his lineage. His lovely pout and tuxedo body uncover it all. Once more comfortable with me, Hanson elects to sit by my side, his body clutched to my legs. Who adopted whom? It seems that Hanson made a choice…I wish I could…Strong with my encouragements, he makes it to my lap. Hanson loves caresses and hugs. Oh strange…his head smells of chocolate…This is i guess to match the dark brown hue of his coat.As i throw him a ball, he runs after it, makes an attempt to catch it and comes back to me.May be another day.Time for a short walk around the block.Hanson pulls a little on the leash, welcomes another volunteer and her petting and iddles when another dog approaches. As son as he knew who he was dealing with, just a friend, Hanson relaxed and squeezed by me. Hanson is indeed a bit of a mouse… but it all could change if he is given a chance, the chance to be cared and loved by you. Come and meet our little boy at the Manhattan Care Center. Hanson is waiting patiently for you.
06/11/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Hanson did well on his SAFER and remains human- and dog-social, but his on-leash behavior is declining in the care center. He has begun engaging in rope biting behavior, and may be difficult to manage once he is over threshold. When leashed with he begins to bite up the rope and is very difficult to disengage or distract. We recommend an experienced adopter prepared to safely manage and positively modify this on-leash behavior should it appear in a home environment. 4/30 SAFER: Hanson walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Hanson was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Hanson was not interested in toys or rawhide. Hanson did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. 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 likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food: 1. Dog lifts head and ceases eating when you reach to pull the bowl away Toy 1. No interest. Rawhide 1.
