Meet Jimmy! Jimmy is a nice boy and would settle in well in an Average home environment. He came into the care center with several bite wounds and will need to have an in-home 6 month observation period. Jimmy unfortunately has come down with pneumonia and is feeling quite sick.

Jimmy came to us as a stray on 3/26/15. Upon intake Jimmy was reportedly easy to handle and calm when entering the facility. Jimmy had an over calm and relaxed body language during the assessment. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items without displaying any signs of aggression. He was a bit fearful during the tag test, and did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Jimmy showed no interest in the toy or rawhide items on this portion of the assessment.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
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 closed for a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 2. Dog stands with his tail low and slightly fearful body language, and comes toward the Assessor in a relaxed manner when the Assessor ceases moving.
Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2:2. Dog quickly 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: No interest.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
