Jeter came to our center as a stray so behaviors in the home are unknown. He was a little fearful upon entering the facility, but did eventually approach slowly when admissions counselor extended hand and spoke softly. He walked very slowly and calmly during his relief walk and into the SAFER assessment area. He allowed all tactile portions of the assessment without any aggression. Jeter allowed his head to be cupped in assessor’s hands for Look item, as well as stood still and accepted the touch for Sensitivity item, though a bit cautious in body with tail down. Jeter followed at the end of leash for Tag game, but was somewhat cautious at each pass. He panted throughout and settled instantly at end. Jeter had no response to either Squeeze attempt; he did not pull back his front paw. He had minimal interest in Food and Rawhide, sniffing before turning away. Jeter had no interest at all in Toy item. During Social Time off leash, Jeter did not interact with any other dogs, but allows them to greet him. The Behavior Team feels he would do well in an Average home that allows him to warm up to his new environment to minimalize his nervousness.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body neutral, mouth closed, lip long, ears back.
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body low and a bit fearful.
Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed.
Food: 1. Minimal interest in food, dog may smell or lick, then turns away.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide, dog may smell or lick, then turns away.
Dog-to-Dog: Jeter continues to be polite and allows to be greeted by other dogs. He did not engage in any play, allows to be greeted but will retreat.
When off leash with other dogs, Jeter is very tolerant with both male and female dogs. he did not engage in play, but allowed to be greeted and often wandered the yard at the presence of other dogs.
5/20 Update : Jeter continues to be polite and allows to be greeted by other dogs. He did not engage in any play.
5/21 Update : Jeter offers appropriate correction to dogs who get a little too close to him. He often solicits handlers attention, does not engage in any play with other dogs.
5/22-5/23 Update : Jeter continues to stay closer to the handler’s side. He appears to be coexisting, and allows to be greeted but will retreat.
