I don’t know where to start when talking about Shine. Do I begin with how sad it is that a dog who was adopted from ACC many years ago is now back with us, abandoned by his owner, along with his housemate Garney (A0426026). Or, do I talk about how my heart swelled with the time we spent together, walking to the park, getting to know each other in the backyard and how unbelievable I think he is. With quiet dignity Shine lay in his kennel watching me pass with other dogs, and when I finally unlatched his gate he looked up at me with surprise and pleasure. Easily leashed we walked in harmony to the park, Shine showing off a spry walk of a dog half his age! His leash manners are amazing, he acknowledges other dogs we pass, is alert to his surroundings, gave me some kisses as we became friends and was happy to have company. He’s gentle and soft, seems to like other dogs, and may have some hearing loss associated with age. The person with whom both Shine and Garney was left by the owner tells us both dogs are housetrained, friendly and sweet. I loved my time with Shine, my heart breaks for him as he should be in a warm bed, in a quiet place surrounded by people who love him, and with his friend Garney. He’s not asking for much and when you meet him it will be such an easy give. Your heart will swell as did mine. He deserves so much more than this.

BEHAVIOR AVERAGE 4/23:
Shine walks calmly on leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body. He was calm and relaxed during handling. Shine was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. Shine was not interested in toys or rawhide. He was relaxed when approaching a friendly dog, but was not playful.
Shine did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
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: 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: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body likely a bit stiff. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek.
Toy 1. No interest.
