A volunteer writes: This petite Shepherd mix is a bit timid and oh-so-patient in her kennel, but once in the back and free to romp, she’s buoyant! Her enthusiasm grows with the number of potential playmates, as Honey Dukes bestows kisses and hugs to the humans; she happily greets other dogs through the fence, jumping and spinning and frolicking. Honey Dukes appears housetrained and is a delight to be around until a leash is introduced as something to walk with rather than something with which to play tug of war. But what has been taught can be untaught, and who among us doesn’t have a habit we’d do best to break? Honey Dukes is a sparkly, shiny dog ready to light up your world!
05/20/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Update: Honey Dukes has shown some concerning behavior on-leash during walks, grabbing and shaking the leash hard, and at times biting up the leash. The behavior stopped once she had been walking for a few minutes, but based on the low threshold for arousal and overstimulation, in combination with the concerns seen during the SAFER assessment, we feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification is in Honey Dukes’s best interest. While off-leash with handlers she was shy and affectionate. 5/19 SAFER: Honey Dukes walks calmly on leash. She was shy but friendly during the assessment – low body, but trying to stay close. Honey Dukes was shy during handling with a fearful body language. She was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Honey Dukes showed some concerning behavior during the food bowl and rawhide test – stiffening and growling, but did not snap at or bite the assess-a-hand. She was not interested in toys. Honey Dukes was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful. Honey Dukes somewhat fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler she shows potential for possessive behavior over the food and rawhide. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, shy body language , mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. 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.) she is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Food 4. Dog freezes and growls. Toy 1. No interest. Rawhide 4. Dog freezes and growls. Dog – dog 1.
