A volunteer writes: Ask any of the staff about Lila and they smile and say, Lila is a terrific dog! Now that I’ve spent time with her you can ask me and I’ll say the same thing! Sleek in her shiny black coat, wagging tail and sparkling eyes Lila was thrilled to go out to go potty and a walk to the park. Her leash manners are lovely, she shows off her sit in exchange for a treat which she gently takes from my hand, and was happy to meet everyone who wanted to meet her. Surrendered by her person due to a pet conflict, we’re told she lived with two adults, 2 cats with whom she was relaxed and playful and another dog. We’re also told that she’s housetrained, crate trained, knows ‘sit’, ‘come’, ‘stay’, ‘inside’ and ‘outside’, slept in bed with her owner and is well behaved when left home alone. In the backyard Lila found a ball and a toy and had a great time playing fetch bringing the ball back to me for another throw. According to her former owner she does guard her ‘stuff’ from other dogs so care will need to be taken if there is another animal in the home. She didn’t guard her ball or toy from me, always ready to release for another throw. Sweet, friendly and affectionately in my lap for some kisses, Lila is hoping to find a new home. As any New Yorker will tell you, black is the best color ever and Lila is here to prove it to you.
05/12/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lila pulls a bit on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, wagging tail. She was calm and relaxed during handling. Lila was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She did not resist being handled while eating, and was easily pushed out of the food bowl. Lila took the toy away with a soft body language and was not interested in rawhide. Lila approaches helper dog, body is tense, ears erect and high tail wag. Lila was friendly during the assessment and was easy to handle but she show some concerning during the dog interacting with his body stiff, tail high, mouth close and he stands tall, sometimes on his tiptoes, and tries to look large. Lila was surrender to us. According to her previous owner Lila lives in a home with 2 adults. She has only interacted with children she sees while on walks and owner states that she is usually friendly toward them. She is usually relaxed around the other dog, but owner stated she does get possessive over her food and toys and that sometimes she does lunge at or growl at the other dog”. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment. We also recommend a home that she may be the only dog in the house because she was a bit uncomfortable around other dogs at the shelter and her owner stated “she can get possessive with her food and toys when she is around other dogs”. 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, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture.
