02/27/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Oh, hi there! My name is Royale (like royal but even fancier!) and maybe you didn’t notice because you were so blinded by my handsome face, but I have a toy in my mouth. It’s a plush toy (my favorite kind) and it’s shaped like an octopus (so many legs to chew!) and I really really really want to play with it. And you. Forever. Is that something you might be interested in? Just in case my awesome toy isn’t enough to win you over (though how could it not be? It’s an octopus, people!!!) I have lots of other good stuff to share as well. My volunteer tells me I’ve got something called ‘moxie’ and that I’m ‘full of beans’, which is silly because I don’t even like beans, I like dog treats. Do you have any treats for me? I can get a little over-excited when taking them from your hand but it’s only because they’re so yummy and also because my last family never took the time to teach me these things you call ‘table manners’. I really love meeting new people and other dogs and my tail wags super hard when I do because I’m so happy. It also wags when I’m exploring outside or playing tug-o-war or getting snuggles. Let’s just say I’m happy a LOT of the time. I pull a bit on the leash but I’m always ready to listen to your voice and I think I might be house trained because I usually wait until we’re outside to go potty and my volunteer tells me this is a Very Good Dog thing to do. I’m fast on my feet and great at catching a ball (though my heart belongs to plush toys) and these little legs are actually a lot more powerful than they look. Can you keep a secret? I think I might be a superhero! I have this superpower that when I go back into my den I jump jump jump straight into the air and I have to be kept in a kennel with a roof, just in case I learn how to fly! Yep, I’m a pretty special puppy. They tell me I got good grades on my behavior test and I can live in an experienced home with people who get me and understand that I’m still learning. You know, things like how to keep my mouth soft when I hold my toys or eat my food, how to walk in a straight line when there’s a leash round my neck, stuff like that. So anyway…until my new family comes I’ll just be waiting here. All by myself. Holding a really cool octopus toy that you’d have to be crazy not to wanna play with…just sayin’.
02/23/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Royale has been social and affectionate since intake. Royale was sociable and somewhat excited toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag and occasionally jumped on the assessor. He did become over excited during the tag item of the SAFER, jumping up and grabbing at the leash, but showed no aggression and calmed quickly once assessor stopped moving. He ate faster and was hard to push out of the food bowl, but did not show aggression. The dog did hold onto toy and would not easily relinquish but remained playful. Royale showed some potential to guard food and we would recommend an experienced adopter with no young children who could safely manage and positively modify this behavior if it manifests in the home. Although Royale was playful, he did hold firmly onto the toy and tried to engage the Assessor in tug. He will likely benefit from being taught “drop” and trade-up games. 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. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft or low, and somewhat excitable, did grab leash but calmed easily once item was completed. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds, did lick assessors hand. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds, did lick assessors hand. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Food: 3. Dog gulps food, begins to eat faster and with bigger bites, body stiff. He does not lift head when hand is applied to cheek. Toy: 3. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Would not easily relinquish toy. Rawhide: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the rawhide. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip long or neutral. Dog did tongue flick toward helper dog.
