12/11/2014 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes:My handsome friend, named after a yummy spice, is every bit as yummy as his name. Happy to be going out, he peed enough to raise the Hudson River by 5 inches so he’s likely housetrained. He pulls on the leash until he ‘goes’, and after walking for a few minutes, he settles into a nice pace. He’s friendly to all, loving people and wagging his tail happily when anyone gives him attention. Posing for photos like a rockstar, he didn’t mind being tethered, makes soft eye contact and sweeps treats gently from my hand. We enjoyed some cuddle time on the bench, Coriander cuddling in my lap and giving kisses. Quietly friendly and loving, he’s an awesome cuddle partner! Off leash in a pen he greets other dogs through the gate quietly and respectfully, is low key and calm. He chases after a tennis ball with glee, bringing it back for another toss and letting me take it out of his mouth with no issue. Found as a ‘stray’, but clearly having enjoyed the benefits of a home, Coriander is polite, kind, gentle and sweet. He’s looking for a cuddle partner with whom to live happily ever after. If you’re lucky, it could be you!! Another volunteer writes: WE LOVE THIS DOG! Gentle, easy, affectionate and quietly tail waggy, Coriander’s kennel card is already filled with accolades from volunteers who have met and walked him. He’s easy to be with, happy to receive attention gently laying his head in my lap, and purring with enjoyment. He’s a super cuddler, but not overbearing, happy to greet other dogs, and doing well in doggie play groups. Happy to be out, happy to go potty, happy to put on a coat against the chill air, Coriander is just quietly happy to be with friends, whether two legged or four. He’s currently accepting applications for his new home, and hopes you’ll fill one out today. He’s a sweetheart! Another volunteer writes:Coriander, my welcome and much needed respite from walking the more boisterous pups. Always ready for a snuggle and a kiss, good on the leash and likely housetrained, Coriander is nicely behaved, gentle, and well mannered.He sits when asked to, leans in for some petting, and it’s clear from all the great comments on his walking log that I’m not the only volunteer who thinks so. Accolades from ‘great dog’ to ‘what a sweetheart’ are plentiful and well deserved!! He does well in play groups, accepting correction from other dogs if needed, and ignoring dogs that get too rowdy.
07/22/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sheldon briefly lived with 2 adults and the owners state he has not been exposed to children in the home. The owner reports that Sheldon is aroused by small dogs and cats when on walks and may pull as well as growl, but when around larger dogs Sheldon was reported to be more receptive and will make introductions. The owners also stated that Sheldon is housebroken and rarely has accidents inside home, and he is well behaved when home alone. Upon intake it was noted that Sheldon was receptive to introduction, and loose for all handling. Sheldon was also reported to walk well on leash and was responsive to guidance but could be insistent. During SAFER Sheldon was very sociable and attention seeking. He allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue, and was easily excitable but playful during the tag interaction. During the resources portion of the assessment Sheldon was easy to handle when engaged with the food allowing the assessor to easily push him out of the food bowl. When engaged with the toys and rawhides Sheldon was also easy to handle and he relinquished the toy to the assessor but not the rawhides. Sheldon appears to be sociable, but can pull hard on the leash when on walks and can become a bit rough when aroused during play, so the department feels Sheldon can be suitable for an experience adopter with no young children. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Easily aroused. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Food: 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish’s movement. Dog’s body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. He lifts his head when hand is pushed against his cheek. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. 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: When off leash with other dogs Sheldon is tolerant and social, greets appropriately. Remains sexually motivated. Likes handler interaction. 8/9 update: Sheldon shows some barrier reactivity in the kennel environment. Please see GroupBehavior entry

Tolerant. 7/23 update: Sheldon continues to be tolerant. Bit sexually motivated, but generally explores the yard. Greets appropriately. 7/25 update: Sheldon continues to greet politely, but mainly explores the yard. Bit stiff but tolerant. 8/9 summary update: Sheldon has begun to show some barrier reactivity inside the care center, lunging toward, jumping, and snapping at other dogs through the kennel doors when he is walked past them. This behavior shows some potential for (thus far, likely unintentional) redirection onto the human handler. This has been seen in both the Adoptions room and the holding room. He has not shown this behavior in playgroup, though he may be dog selective.
