A volunteer writes: Just in time for opening day, this boy is ready to hit it out of the park! He’s compact, adorable, affectionate, housetrained, seems to love other dogs, a perfect weight for his size and loves squeaky toys. Give him a toy that doesn’t squeak…not really interested…give him a toy that squeaks and his tail wags, his eyes light up and he play bows to it anticipating some fun. He’s compact, his leash manners are good, and he goes potty as soon as we’re out the door. Although not interested in my treats, he sniffed them politely before equally politely turning away. It’s definitely the toys that get him excited, as he play bows repeatedly. HR (for short) seems to like other dogs, and when we met a Great Dane in the park HR showed friendly interest completely undaunted by the Dane’s size. Giving soft kisses HR is happy with a good snuggle, rocks his bow tie for some pictures, and of course aced his behavior assessment indicating he’ll be a good fit in just about any home. Easily lifted in and out of his top kennel, he’s easy to handle and ready to play for your team. He’s neutered and ready to go home with you. Meet him today.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Home Run came to our center on 4/18/2015 after he was found as a stray and kept in the home for one week. It is reported he lived with teenagers and was playful and social. The family describes his behavior as ‘jumpy and hyper’ and that he loves to play and is very active. Home Run walked nicely on leash for his relief walk. He jumped up to lick the assessor’s face during Look item. Home Run accepted all tactile portions of the SAFER assessment with no aggressive behaviors. He followed at the end of leash during Tag, but became focused on other stimuli during each pass. Home Run gently pulled back his paw during both Squeeze items, licking assessor’s hand after Squeeze 1. He lifted his head out of the food dish easily once hand was applied to his cheek. Home Run had minimal interest in Toy item, sniffing and then turning away. He kept a firm grip on the rawhide, but his body remained loose and wiggly at all times. During dog-to-dog interaction, Home Run approached with his tail high and ears back. The Behavior Team feels Home Run would do well in an Average home, one where he can have daily exercise to burn off some of his high energy. Enrichment toys will also aid in positively directing his energy, such as rawhide, kongs, etc. Home Run may also benefit from obedience classes to learn not to jump up. Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. 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 panting throughout the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, focused on other stimuli in between passes. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw and licks hand. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food: 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish’s movement. Dog’s body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. He lifts his head when hand is pushed against his cheek. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Rawhide: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the rawhide. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body soft, tail above spine level, ears back.
