11/14/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Simply stunning. For Raisinette life just took a big step towards getting better. Coming to us very thin, she is now getting fed 3 meals a day to help her gain some weight. Her feet show the signs of being crated for far too long and need to gain muscle tone in order to resume a proper shape. Despite all that, she’s friendly, tail wagging, and happy to make new friends. Intake notes state that she’s “friendly and waggy”, and she certainly is. Her leash manners are lovely, she sits when asked, and all things considered takes treats gently considering how thin she is. She bonds quickly with her person, enjoying the attention and petting. Her eyes look up with love and hope…..hope for a new family, hope for a warm, soft bed, and hope for a wonderful future. Can we make her dreams come true?
11/15/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Raisinette came into our center after a member of the public found her as a stray. She was easy to place in and out of kennel and allowed all handling during her initial medical exam. She pulled on leash during her relief walk. Raisinette allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, focused on other stimuli and sniffing assessor’s arms. She stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, body soft, tail down, focused on other stimuli and sniffing assessor’s pants. Raisinette followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, settling easily at end. She gently pulled her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Raisinette had no interest in Toy. Raisinette appears uncomfortable when off leash with other dogs. She is stiff when the other dog approaches to greet, growling and eventually baring teeth. When the helper dog moves away, she begins to pursue him, still growling. The Behavior Team feels Raisinette would do best with an Experienced adopter and may benefit from being the only resident dog. Raisinette may benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners and focus. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her ears are back, her tail is down, and she has a relaxed body posture, focused on other stimuli. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body soft, mouth closed, focused on other stimuli. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy 1. No interest. Dog-dog: Raisinette appears uncomfortable when off leash with other dogs. She is stiff when the other dog approaches to greet, growling and eventually baring teeth. When the helper dog moves away, she begins to pursue him, still growling.
11/12/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION

Raisinette has been uncomfortable with other dogs while in the care center. She greets well through the gate but is defensive when approached. The behavior department recommends that Raisinette have a pre-adoption interaction before being placed in a home with another dog. When off leash with other dogs Raisinette is stiff when approached, growling and eventually baring teeth. When the helper dog moves away, she begins to pursue him, still growling. 11/18: Raisinette allows brief greeting from behind. She lip curls in response to another dog approaching and sniffing her face. 11/20 update: Raisinette greets well at the gate and will briefly greet once introduced. When the other dogs approach she becomes a bit tense but will allow them to sniff.
