10/17/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: So gorgeous, so sweet and gentle, I couldn’t help my heart breaking in two as I leashed Raven for a walk. Surrendered by his people for “personal problems” we unfortunately have no history for him, but based on his quiet and gentle demeanor we know that moving forward he’ll be happy as part of a loving family. He has a small mass under his tail which doesn’t seem to be affecting his going potty which he did as soon as we were out the door, but it needs to be dealt with. Raven walks slowly and gently, loves treats and takes them gently and loves to be petted. As we chatted he leaned his head into my hand as I rubbed his ears. Staff knows and loves Raven and I think there is a collective heartbreak as everyone sees this magnificent dog and recognizes his sadness at being left behind with apparent medical issues. Raven needs to find his guardian angel, his angel to help him medically, restore his faith and love in people and provide soft and loving arms in which to spend the rest of his life.
10/17/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Raven walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during the look and sensitivity. The behavior department decided to skip the tag interaction and used the squeeze flank instead of the squeeze paw because of his medical condition. He became a bit uncomfortable during the Squeeze flank. Raven growled and snapped at the assess-a-hand during the food bowl test. He was not interested in toys or rawhide. Raven was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful. Raven may require positive reinforcement behavior modification to address this food guarding behavior. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter without child. 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. Flank squeeze 1: 3. Dog head flips while moving hip away. Flank squeeze 1: 3. Dog head flips while moving hip away. Food: 4. Dog growls and snapped. Toy: 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog – dog: 1. Dog approaches the helper, soft body, tail neutral, but not playful. Helper: A1054747
