A volunteer writes: We’re going to assume this extraordinary, gorgeous, glorious pup is named after a certain well-known crooner, and we’re going to bet that Sinatra the dog becomes even more famous than that other singing dude for his charm. He is melting hearts at record speed in the shelter, starting with his endearing habit of reaching his paw through the kennel bars to hold hands, and continuing on to collapsing on his back for belly rubs, romping with delight with his fellow canines, playing ball with abandon by himself, content as can be….he responds immediately to correction because he is so eager to please, heeling on the leash for the entirety of the walk after one quick tug of the leash….and oh, the affection! The snuggles! The kisses! We are in love. Everyone is in love. This dog is deliciousness, delightful, delectable, and ready to be the star of a family!04/20/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sanatra was a bit fearful when approaching the Assessor, body low, ears back. He attempted to get away and was uncomfortable while being collared but had soft body. During the tactical handling items Sanatra was uncomfortable and turned quickly toward the Assessor’s hand making it difficult to position the dog for some of the items. He continually tried to get away from the Assessor in between tactical handling items and was uncomfortable being with his head being handled. He was playful during tag and began to play tug-o-war with the leash toward the end of the game but calmed quickly. He ate faster, was stiff and very difficult to push out of the food bowl, but did not growl, snap or bite. Sanatra took the toy away, body language was stiff. He kept a firm grip on the rawhide but remained loose and wiggly. Sanatra came to the care center as a stray. Upon intake he was shy but very calm. During the assessment Sanatra was very uncomfortable with close handling and head flipped towards the Assessor’s hand when the Assessor would attempt to hold the dog’s collar. The Behavior Department believes Sanatra would do best in an experienced home with no children. He also showed some potential to guard food and toys, therefore we would recommend an experienced who could safely manage and positively modify this behavior if it manifests in the home and work with him to positively modify his handling behavior. Look: 3. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions and head flips toward Assessor’s hand when reaching for collar. Sensitivity: 2.
