Mushy came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. During SAFER Mushy came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was shy, friendly and social towards the assessor with a slow approach, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Mushy was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Mushy was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Mushy has been showing fearful behavior. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Mushy is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Mushy be given the opportunity to interact at his own pace, so the behavior department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
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: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed.
Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog smells, then turns away.
Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Mushy gretts politely and seems interested but does not actually engage in play.
When off leash with other dogs, Mushy greets politely and is interested when solicitation is offered but does not actually engage in play. He is a bit sexually motivated.
12/3 update: Mushy gretts politely and seems interested but does not actually engage in play.
