A volunteer writes: I LOVE THIS FACE! Seriously-it’s amazing! And, don’t tell my Aunt Lotte, but he reminds me of her – that frumpy face, the chin whiskers….and much cuter on him of course! His square-ish face and over bite suggests some boxer in his lineage – his amazing ears frame that face to perfection. Burton is being fed an extra meal daily as he’s far too thin and as I toss him some treats he shows what a rock star he is by catching every one on the fly. Burton seems housetrained, and interestingly enough he didn’t potty in the backyard pen where we were first, but after playing we went onto the street and that’s the very first thing he did. He’s a great ball player, sitting waiting for the throw, keeping his eye on the ball and bounding after it once tossed. Bringing it back for another throw he waits for it again, and repeat, repeat, repeat. Burton has nice leash manners on the street, is alert, observant and friendly to all as we walk. His face attracts the attention of all as he wags his tail in friendship to everyone we pass. Energetic, playful and fun, Burton is looking for a new place to call home…..home is where nutritious and plentiful food is available every day, and of course, lots of love. Meet Mr. Frumpy Face today and turn that face into a smile!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Burton pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. Burton was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. He was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Burton 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 with a soft body language. Burton appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. The behavior department feels that he can go to an experienced home. 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. His 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.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Squeeze2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. 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: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the rawhide. When off leash with other dogs Burton greets and will continue to approach the helper dog to sniff, but he is more interested in exploring his surroundings. 9/25 update: Burton greets politely and is interested in interaction.

A volunteer writes: Hello new human friend, is that a tennis ball in your hand? Wait…is it two balls? All for me?!! Wow, this is so unexpected, so exciting…I don’t know what to say…How about I drop this other ball (blech, it now seems so tasteless by comparison) then sit politely while you tell me what a good boy I am and maybe after that you can throw the new ball? Not to toot my own horn but I’m quite the star when it comes to fetching; I can run like the wind and back again, hop onto the bench and happily entertain myself for hours (in dog years) by chomping, dropping, kicking and re-chomping the ball…that is, unless you’d care to throw that second tennis ball into the mix? I knew I could count on you! Now we can play my favorite game and don’t worry, the rules are simple so you don’t have to be as smart, athletic or good looking as me to keep up. Just throw one ball, wait for me to return to the bench with it then raise up the other ball and hold it…hold it…(I love the suspense)…then throw again! I’ll drop the first ball from my mouth for you to pick up and before you know it I’m back on the bench and we can start over, how fun is that??!! Ball play and hanging out with all my friends are my most favorite things to do but I like other stuff too, I’m what they call a well-rounded guy. I enjoy sitting nicely in exchange for a treat, meeting other pups, coming when called for treats, playing with squeaky toys, having a treat and then going for a walk (got to take care of business!), sniffing around the park and snuffling your pocket for treats while snuggling on the bench. I also like treats. I’m always happy to share my things and never ‘guard’ them (whatever that means) and I’m told I have a ton of potential for learning new tricks, on account of the smarts and the treat liking and all. So, now you know pretty much everything about me, how about I get to know you? My schedule is wide open and I’m available for playdates any day of the week, hope to see you soon!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rawling walked nicely on leash, he was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, licked hands and face. He was excited during some of the handling items and was in constant movement between items, but had soft body language. He became easily over stimulated once the tag game began and would jump up on the assessor after each pass and was difficult to push off and was focused on the assessor and all other stimuli in the room; however his body remained neutral throughout. Rawling was stiff and cannot be pushed out of the food bowl, but did not growl, snap or bite. He was easy to handle when chewing on the toy and showed no interest in rawhide. Rawling was brought to the care center as a stray; upon intake, he was friendly, very energetic, and continually jumped up on people, showing no signs of aggression. Rawling had a soft body throughout the handling portion of the assessment but displayed a high level of energy and low threshold for over arousal. He also showed a slight potential to become possessive over food, stiffening and not lifting his head during the food test. The Behavior Department recommends Rawling go to an experienced home with no young children that is prepared to provide him adequate mental and physical stimulation as appropriate outlets for his energy and provide him with obedience lessens to work on his tendency to continually jump up on people. If there are older children in the home, an in-depth interaction should be conducted prior to adoption. 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: 3. Dog becomes quickly over aroused upon the assessor’s quick movement, jumps on the assessor with open mouth, panting, body neutral, focused on assessor and all other stimuli in the room. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food: 3. Dog follows the dish, his tail between his legs, ears are forward. His body is stiff. Dog does not lift his head from the bowl when hand is applied to his 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: 1. No interest.
