06/22/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I met Rambo over the weekend, he and his housemate Xena were surrendered to the shelter because their owner didn’t have time for them. Rambo is so scared in his kennel he hides in the back and he needs a bit of coaxing to come out. Once out, he enjoys the sun and the company and accepts my petting and treats. By the end of our time together Rambo was kissing me and trying to fit his big body in my lap. Rambo walks well on leash, takes treats nicely and is so so handsome. Please come to SIACC and meet Rambo.
06/16/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rambo came to us as an owner surrender along with another dog. It is reported he has lived with many adults and children. Rambo was nervous to come out of his kennel, but once leashed he walked nicely, no pulling. Rambo was consistently very nervous during his SAFER assessment. He allowed his head to be cupped, body fearful, eyes averted. Rambo stood fearfully still during Sensitivity item, ears back, mouth closed, lip long. He followed at the end of the leash, body fearful, tail down, crouching at last pass during Tag game. Rambo flinched hard at the first Squeeze attempt, but did not pull his paw back at either Squeeze. He had no interest in Food, Toy, or Rawhide. Owner reports Rambo will not eat in front of anyone so the food is just left out. Rambo did not approach the helper dog, ears back, tail down. He did not try to exit, but would not walk forward. The Behavior Team feels Rambo would do best in an Experienced adopter’s home without Young Children, older children having an indepth interaction before consideration. He may do best in a calm, quiet, structured home where he knows what to expect and can relax in h is new home. It should be noted that after the assessment, Rambo approached the assessor and allowed petting. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is cautious and fearful, his tail is low and not moving. He 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 between his legs, body cautious, mouth closed, lip long, ears back. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body fearful. Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog flinches, does not pull back paw. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Food: Inconclusive, dog is not eating. Toy: 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: 2.
