03/18/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Skylar is a playful scamp at heart but if you notice a touch of sadness in those crystalline eyes it’s probably because she’s already seen far too much disappointment in her young life. A repeat visitor to the Care Center, this charming little lady made it through a holding period, a stay at the vet and her spay surgery only to be rejected once more by the person she’d always thought of as her family. Now Skylar needs a new family, a forever one who’ll treasure and spoil her as the pretty Princess she was always meant to be. I’ve met Skylar before but today is our first real date and after a short in-kennel game of whose-leash-is-it-anyway, she grabs an actual toy and trots politely outside, promptly taking care of some pressing ‘business’ and passing by other dogs with friendly interest before getting down to the main reason for this excursion – tennis ball time! Though she enjoys messing around with plushies and rope toys, balls are Skylar’s first love and she’s beyond thrilled to chase, chew or just carry one around in her mouth. She shows no signs of guarding but likes to keep the ball close at paw and it’s so nice to watch her forget all her troubles and focus on the simple joy of playing with a toy of her very own. Skylar does enjoy the company of other dogs but seems to be less sociable when there’s a barrier between them (just ask her eager, love-struck boyfriend in the pen next door!) and her parents may want to help her work on this behavior once she’s settled into her new home. A special dog who deserves to have her long journey end in loving arms, Skylar wants you to know that if you’re looking for a pet who’s elegant yet athletic, sweet but mischievous and always up for more playtime then she’s the girl for you!
04/30/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Update:4-23-15 Skylar’s behavior appears to be deteriorating in the care center. She has become reactive to dogs that pass by her kennel, and will also bite and tug at the leash while being walked. She may take toys out of a person’s hand roughly, and her behavior toward other dogs while interacting outside has also deteriorated. We feel that Skylar will do best with an experienced adopter who can provide mental and physical stimulation and guidance to help her become a successful family pet. We feel that leaving the kennel environment and being placed into a stable home environment quickly is in Skylar’s best interest. Safer: 4-30-15 During her second assessment Skylar pulls a bit on the leash. She was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. She was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. Skylar was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. She was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. She took the toy and rawhide away with a soft body language. 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 displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. Her body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. 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. Squeeze2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Food 2. Dog follows the dish with her tail down, body likely a bit stiff. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek. Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy. Rawhide: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place his body between you and the rawhide. Dog-dog from 3-12-15 SAFER: Dog – dog 2.
