A staff member writes : Meet Junior. Junior was surrendered to our care center because his owner could not take care of him anymore. Junior is not doing well in the shelter and really needs to go to a quiet and calm home, where he can relax and distress.
Junior pulls a bit on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Junior was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He took the toy away with a soft body language.
Junior did not show any concern during the behavior assessment but he show a bit of concern around other dogs. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment.
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.
Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
When off leash with other dogs Junior briefly greets and allows the helper dog to continue to sniff him. He is uncomfortable when play is solicited and will back away.
11/24: Junior is tense and uncomfortable during interaction, growls and bares teeth during solicitation.
