A volunteer writes: Frank Sinatra recorded a song making it famous, and I’ve taken a bit of liberty with the lyrics as follows: “Once in love with Jaden always in love with Jaden. Ever and ever fascinated by him. Sets your heart afire to stay.” Yes, I fell in love with this coco color morsel, his gentle face with worry wrinkles on his forehead, his sweet kisses and the way he lays his head in my lap one paw on my knee. Throw in for good measure the fact that he goes potty outside, is good on the leash after he finds a good spot to potty, and poses for pictures like a rockstar. He’s the perfect weight for his size, his coat is clean and groomed, and his amber eyes soft and sweet. When another dog approached our pen he play bowed to her, and in group with other dogs he engages in play when solicited and responds well to correction if needed. Jaden can be a bit shy, but is so loving and happy to find a gentle kindred spirit that he totally swept me off my feet. So yes, “once in love with Jaden, always in love with Jaden…..” He aced his behavior assessment and is ready to begin his happily ever after with you today. He’s looking for his BFF – aren’t you?
Jaden came into our center after a member of the public found him tied outside. During intake, he was quiet and calm. He was nervous and skittish during his initial medical exam, but allowed all handling. He pulled hard on his relief walk. Jaden was a bit nervous upon entering the SAFER assessment room, body a bit low, but warmed up. He held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, tail neutral, slight lip lick. He stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, ears back, slight lip lick. Jaden followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, body soft, settled easily at end of game. He did not pull his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Jaden showed interest in Toy, taking it in his mouth with wagging tail, but the minute assess-a-hand approached he timidly relinquished and would not re-engage with Toy. Off leash with other dogs, Jaden explored the yard. The Behavior Team feels Jaden would do well in an Average home. He may benefit from a slow approach/slow introduction so he can relax and warm up at his own pace.
