03/02/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: So just what does that CM stand for? After spending time with this funny, affectionate and playful pup my guess would be Charming and Magical! He’s certainly cast a powerful love spell over me and I envy the lucky adopter who’ll get to enjoy his wonderful sunshine-y personality and amazing good looks every single day. CMH is a such a social butterfly and always thrilled to meet new friends, as soon as I stop by his den he hops off his bed to come lick my hand through the door and to ever so gently takes treats from my fingers. When he greets a newly discovered doggie girlfriend through a backyard fence the joy in his excited nose snuffles and wagging tail is clear for all to see. He’s fine with any and all handling (even the clearly unfamiliar concept of a coat) and comes running when I call him for snuggles or treats, leaping into my arms like the most friendly, carefree boy in the world. Though CMH can get a bit jumpy when really excited, he’s very responsive to my voice and all it take is a quick ‘no, down’ to put him back on all fours again. I’d bet good money that with his smarts and eagerness to please he’ll go right to the top in doggie obedience or agility class – just imagine the proud, happy smiles all round as he shows you just what great feats he can achieve. Tennis balls are his toy of choice and we have great fun chasing one around the pen, racing to see who can reach it first (spoiler: it’s always CMH) then settling down so he can merrily munch on his prize while I give that perpetually worried little brow a much-appreciated massage. Simply beautiful inside and out, CM Hunk would make a wonderful addition to your active, experienced family and if some of those family members could be of the canine persuasion, even better! Why not reverse the fairytale trope and rescue your very own Prince Charming today? Magic and Hunkiness await!
03/02/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
CM Hunk came into the care center after biting a stranger on the calf and ankles. Information on the severity of the bites is not currently available, nor is any other information about his behavior in a home environment. CM walked well on leash, social and interactive with the assessor. During the SAFER assessment he continued to be social and loose-bodied. He allowed all handling items without issue. He engaged with each resource and showed no concerning behavior when each was removed. In the yard CM met another adult male through a fence. He was loose bodied, approached, and showed no strong reaction to the other dog. CM did very well on his SAFER assessment; however, due to his bite history we suggest an experienced adopter. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. 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 & 2: 1. Dog does not pull back his paw, licks hand. 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: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. 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.
