12/01/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/01/15 18:46 While in his crate Wallabee was growling, lunging and barking. When he came out he had a wagging tail, he allowed staff to pet him, collar him and take pictures. He also walked nicely on the leash and went in and out of kennel easily. He showed no signs of aggression once he was out of the crate and police weren’t around.
12/04/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Wallabee is a big boy with a big heart but he hasn’t had an easy life and it shows. An old collar scar on the back of his neck, a passionate kennel attitude and an intense reaction to uniformed police officers suggest that despite all the love he has for us humans, we haven’t given back in kind. Outside of his den Wallabee is wonderfully behaved and walks well on leash, seems to be house trained, greets other dogs with low-key good manners and enjoys petting and treats, which he sits politely to receive with a nice soft touch. If he does get mouthy with the leash at times it’s only because he’s never been given an appropriate outlet for his frustrations, and in experienced hands this smart cookie has the potential to really shine by learning new tricks and behaviors. Wallabee’s cool with being hugged and photographed and though reluctant, returns to his bed with minimal fuss. Now that we’re friends I can sweet talk him and pet his nose through the door but in general, a kennel is the last place this active guy wants to spend his free time and he’s not shy about letting passing staff know it! I truly believe Wallabee has the potential to make a loyal and loving pet (for an adult-only family) but he’ll need time, tenacity and training to be the best dog he can be. If yours is the calm, structured home he’s been searching for and your healing hands the ones that can teach him what it means to relax and feel safe, then please don’t delay. Ask about Wallabee at our Manhattan Care Center, he needs your help today.
12/04/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Wallabee was difficult to remove from his kennel showing teeth, growling. Once he was removed from his kennel he pulls hard on leash. Wallabee was stiff and did not show social behavior during the assessment he was uncomfortable when the assessor and the assistant tried to collar him. He stands tall, and tries to look large. He wrinkles his muzzle to expose his front teeth and preparing to lunge forward. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources (toy) Wallabee growled and freezes. 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. Toy 4. Dog freezes and growls.
