11/14/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: We have ponies at the Care Center? Ooops – that’s not a pony, that’s Scooby! This gorgeous dog could certainly be mistaken for a pony, as he’s big, bouncy and fun. He’s already been dubbed, “a big baby” “a doofus” and “a big galumph” by staff as he’s playful, silly and energetic. Likely housetrained he potties as soon as we’re out the door, and will benefit from some leash training and/or a harness as he pulls hard on the leash. Intake notes say he’s friendly but mouthy and rowdy and indeed he is – all about being a big playful boy who has no idea that he’s not a Yorkie! Scooby loves people, play bows to other dogs through the gate and in play with others engages in rough, bouncy play. He loves to snuggle, leaning in for some serious petting before running off to play. Scooby needs an experienced home in which he’ll get the structure and positive reinforcement training he needs. Big, silly, playful and goofy like the cartoon character after which he was named, Scooby-Do, he’s asking you: “where are you?”.
11/14/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Scooby pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, mouthy (light). Scooby was overexcited during handling, jumping up, grabbing at the leash, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. He was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Scooby took the rawhide and mouth at the assessors hand with a soft body language. Scooby appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, mouths the hand, but does not apply pressure. Or, dog licks hands while lips are long. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog gently places his open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog gently places his open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure. Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Mouth the assessor hand (light) When off leash with other dogs, Scooby will initially engage in rough, bouncy play but will become sexually motivated.
11/13/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Scooby offers polite greeting during off leash interaction. He shows continued interest in interacting with female dogs, and will engage in play when solicited. He may become overwhelmed by overly exuberant or vocal styles of play. Scooby has been tolerant of solicitation from a male dog, offering correction when the other dog becomes too pushy. The behavior department recommends placement into a home with a social, female dog. Placement into a home with a male dog may also be considered pending a pre-adoption interaction. Scooby arrived into our care center as a stray, so his in-home behavior with other dogs is unknown. When off leash with other dogs, Scooby will initially engage in rough, bouncy play but will become sexually motivated. 11/14 update: Scooby engages in rough running play with a group of females. Once play ceases he will attempt to mount and continues to do so once correction is offered. 11/15: Scooby solicits play with another playful dog, but becomes overwhelemed by exuberant, vocal solicitation. 11/17 update: Scooby engages in rough play with males and females. He will offer correction when solicited by a pushy male. 11/18: Scooby greets politely. He engages in brief bouts of play. 11/19: Scooby greets politely, does not engage in play today. 11/20 update: Scooby engages in brief bouts of play but is intimidated and will back away when solicited play by a more exuberant dog. 11/21 update: Scooby is polite, he greets well and will give space when the other dog is uncomfortable. He will solicit play and will offer correction when mounted. 11/22: Scooby continues to greet politely, he approaches and shows interest, does not engage in play. 11/23: Scooby continues to display this behavior.
