A volunteer writes: What a little sausage! Beyond adorable in his grey suit and funky little tail, Prometheus is all about people. He loves people, he loves to be pet, he loves to be out for a walk for a chance to go potty. After a short walk we had for the back and as we enter the backyard he stops to survey this new area before walking in. SO cute – I can almost hear his conversation with himself….’ ok, this is new…looks interesting…could be fun….I should probably give it a shot….’ And only after that conversation with himself does he walk on. Off leash in a pen he comes when called, that stubby little tail just wagging a way. He leans in for petting, loving the contact with a human. Our time together was cut short as the vet came
for him to give him some treatment for his ears and his tail. I stopped by to watch and Prometheus stood calmly for his treatment. What a good boy!.. This little sausage would like to be your one and only dog and I suspect with him by your side you won’t need another.

Basic Information: Prometheus was brought in as a stray by the police. Officers say Prometheus was friendly and they were able to handle and transport him without placing inside of a crate.
Behavior during Intake: Prometheus was friendly and very obedient during intake. He immediately came to counselor when summoned despite having a leg injury. Prometheus allowed all handling to be conducted, and even fell asleep when counselor softly petted him on his head. Prometheus allowed all handling to be conducted, and showed no signs of aggression during intake.
Prometheus walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. Prometheus was calm and relaxed during handling. He was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Prometheus took the toy away with a soft body language.
Prometheus did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.

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.
