Louie came to our center on 5/4/2015 when a member of the public found him as a stray. He arrived at the center social and friendly, head high and tail wagging, taking treats gently from the Admissions Counselor. Louie walked nicely on his relief walk, no pulling. He pulled his head away from assessor for all three attempts at Look item, but not aggressively. Louie stood still and accepted touch for Sensitivity item, leaning into the assessor. Louie was unresponsive to the assessor during Tag item, not fearful or aggressive, just focused on other stimuli. He moved his paw away quickly on the first Squeeze attempt, unsure of the touch, but on second attempt he pulled back gently. Louie calmly followed the food dish and lifted his head once assess-a-hand was applied to his cheek. He relinquished the toy easily and had minimal interest in rawhide. The Behavior Team feels Louie would do well in an Average home.
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 low position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is 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 with coaxing. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently 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. Dog will relinquish toy to you.
Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide, dog sniffs, then turns away.
Dog-to-Dog: Dog is a very polite greeter. He gets along with both male and female dogs.
When off leash with other dogs, Louie is a very polite greeter but was sexually motivated with a female dog. He gets along with both male and female dogs.
Louie continues to be sexually motivated and does not respond to correction from handler and dog.
