Shyne came to us as a stray on 10/9/15. Shyne walks well on the leash when taken for a slight walk before assessment. When in the behavior room he was very interested in exploring his environment and was not as interested in interacting with the assessor. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items without displaying any signs of aggression. Shyne was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. He proved easy to handle when chewing on the toy, but growled when the assessor attempted to take his rawhide away. The behavior department believes that Shyne would do best in an experienced home with no young children.
Shyne greets other dogs politely and it tolerant of pushy behavior. Based on his behavior during playgroup, the Behavior Department recommends that Shyne can go to a home with female dogs but we advise against placement with a male dog at this time. He seems to do well with non-playful dogs so we recommend he be placed with calm or gentley playful dogs.
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: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back.
Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek.
Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
Rawhide: 4. Dog growls.

When off leash with other dogs, Shyne greets politely and is tolerant of pushy solicitation. He seems interested but does not engage in play.
10/8 update: Shyne greets female dogs politely. When interacting with a male, Shyne initially greets well but when the male moves away, he becomes overaroused and jumps on the male while growling.
10/9 update: Shyne greets other dogs politely but is not interested in play when solicited.
10/10 update: Shyne greets the other dogs briefly but spends most of his time exploring his surroundings.
10/13 update: Shyne greets politely but spends most of his time exploring his surroundings.
10/14 update: Shyne greets politely but may become uncomfortable with pushy behavior and offer correction when other dogs are playing.
10/15, 10/16 update: Shyne greets briefly but mostly keeps to himself.
10/22 update: Shyne greets politely and then spends his time exploring his surroundings.
A volunteer writes: Shyne is so consistently sweet and well mannered. What makes his demeanor even more impressive is that this is his second, relatively long term stay with us. The only time I’ve ever heard him bark was when he was on the opposite side of a fence with a fellow volunteer. The dog I was with was being very jumpy and mouthy and seeming to sense that I wasn’t having much luck calming her down, Shyne piped in as if to tell her he liked her (he wiggled his tail sniffing her through the fence), but she should check into charm school! And I would appoint Shyne as the director of that school! He has such perfect leash manners I would feel comfortable letting a 10-year-old or an 80-year-old walk him. He seems impeccably house trained and is also impeccably dressed – he looks like he is wearing four white socks. He knows “sit” and “paw” and politely takes treats. He seems to have a very easy energy level, but likes toys and playing fetch. He is sometimes reserved and seems bummed about not being in a home, but wags his tail when you talk to him and likes to be pet. Recently we ran into his favorite staff member and Shyne let loose – his back end wagging with his tail and nearly going belly up with the first pet! I’m sure I caught a glimpse of the welcome Shyne will give his person each and every day – please come meet this wonderful boy today and see if that might be you!
