BEHAVIOR: EXPERINECED HOME
Popeye was brought into the care center as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon entry to the care enter Popeye was reported to be easy to handle, but during his medical exam he was reported to be tense and was not tolerant of any handling. During SAFER Popeye was a bit tense upon entry to the assessment room, but he was receptive to attention. He was tense for some of the handling and became stiff and uncomfortable during the paw squeeze. Popeye was distracted during the tag interaction, and was not interested in any of the resource items. At the end of the assessment Popeye became more relaxed and was very attention seeking but still needed a slow approach, so the department feels Popeye would be best suited for a home with an experienced adopter with no small children.
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: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is down, body a bit tense, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (needed coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back.
Food: No interest
Toy 1: No interest.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Popeye is tolerant when greeted and does not interact beyond the initial greeting
