10/24/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/24/15 07:52 am Easy in easy out of the crate the officers brought him in and our kennels at our shelter.Didnt really wanna walk with us because he was scared to walk. Had to pick him up to place to place.
A volunteer writes: Big eyes peering up at me from his kennel…..a shy, overwhelmed boy who just isn’t sure about anything right now. Too skinny, his body language is nervous/fearful; I can tell he wants to be friends but just isn’t sure how to make it happen. On leash he potties the moment we’re out the door and then tentatively walks down
the street with me. Off leash he explores our pen, comes when called (YAY!) and sniffs my hand for a treat. He takes them gently as clearly underweight as he is. In group with other dogs he’s shy and unsure which is in keeping with his entire demeanor right now. He allows greeting but does not respond to attempts to engage. Space Jam
has a gorgeous face, and his handsome brindle coat will benefit from some much needed weight. He’s not comfortable being touched as of this writing, yet each time I spent time with him today he opened up a bit more. It’s said that “time heals all wounds” and Space Jam will need time to heal from whatever happened in his past to cause his fear and uncertainty. A gentle touch, a soft voice, an easy manner and time for Space Jam to learn that people are good, that he will be safe and loved. Can we give him the gift of time? Only you can do that.
10/27/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Space Jam is fearful of the shelter environment he walks with a low and fearful body language. He was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. Space Jam was stiff and did not show social behavior during the assessment. He was very fearful and uncomfortable during the sensitivity turning quickly toward trying to snap at the assessor’s hand. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Space Jam was a bit difficult to push out of the food bowl, but had soft body language. He was not interested in toys but took the rawhide away, body language was stiff. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 4. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand with a very fast head movement. His body is stiff and he has a closed mouth with a short lip. 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. Rawhide: 3. Dog takes rawhide away, keeps a firm hold. His body is stiff. When off leash with other dogs Space Jam is uncomfortable, allowing greeting with a crouched over body and his tail tucked. He remains in one spot throughout the interaction and will ignore the helper dog when she attempts to solicit play. 10/25 update: Space Jam is nervous and remains crouched in one spot when greeted.
