|A2137836||Tuesday, 01 June, 2021||Fausto can be very evasive in his kennel but when he is ready he will try to make a run once the door is open. He is strong puller but can ease for only a short while since he is skeptical of who is walking him but eventually he is trying to get back in the building then he is pulling or yanking his way back inside. He gives me no issue taking the leash off of him.||Tuesday, 01 June, 2021 6:11PM||Behavior|

|A2137836||Tuesday, 20 July, 2021||Fausto is reactive inside the kennel, but you can get him out for a walk with the help of treats. When he is outside, he mainly is timid, shy, and prefers to go back inside his kennel. It seems as if he is selective with the poeple he meets. By building trust and confidence with him, Fausto may slowly start to open up to you.||Tuesday, 20 July, 2021 11:1AM||Behavior|

|A2137836||Sunday, 01 August, 2021||8/1-Was barking with face sideways and tight, body weight shifted forward, staring when I initially approached the cage, but quickly stopped barking and softened BL when I began tossing treats. Readily remained at the front of the cage eating treats with neutral body language (face soft, body weight neutral, sitting then standing near door). When I opened the cage door he readily walked into the slip lead loop and walked down the row. Readily ate treats while doing this. No issues or concerns observed while walking down the row. Once in the lobby, BL became very fearful (body low, hypervigilant, lip licking, increased panting) and stopped eating treats. This continued during the walk to the office. For the first 5 minutes in the office he paced, panted, had no interest in treats, and BL remained low and tucked. I ignored him to give him some time to acclimate without the pressure of interaction. Somewhere between 5-10 minutes Fausto began coming over to smell me. Again, I did not engage with him initially. After a few more times I performed a petting consent test (2 scratches and stopped). He walked away, but quickly came back and solicited more attention. Continued with the petting consent test a few more times. He seemed to enjoy the attention and BL softened a bit (body position more neutral, face softer). He also began eating treats again, but noted that he continued to pace and pant. If I stood up his BL would again change to a more fearful state (body position low with body weight shifted back. This continued without much change for the remainder of our session. I took him outside before taking him back to the kennel, but he did not want to walk and stayed close to the door. I did not force him to walk and brought him back inside. His BL changed back to neutral-loose once in the familar kennel area again. He did great going back into his kennel. I reinforced him for going in and when taking the leash off. JJ||Wednesday, 04 August, 2021 5:17PM||Behavior|
|A2137836||Monday, 02 August, 2021||8/2-Fausto did great with the in kennel (IK) clicks for calm and quiet (C4C/Q) today. He would still occasionally bark, but was not jumping. When I approached he would quickly become quiet and would even offer some eye relaxed eye contact. We worked several times on targeting my hand for a treat which he did excellent with and by the end of the day was offering this more quickly. Overall, small improvement from the day prior, but continued work needed. JJ||Wednesday, 04 August, 2021 5:20PM||Behavior|
|A2137836||Tuesday, 03 August, 2021||8/3-Again, Fausto continued to improve his kennel prescence today during my rounds of C4C/Q. There was significantly less barking and he did great with the hand targeting through the kennel. I went to get him out in the late morning. He displayed loose to neutral BL (body position neutral, face and body soft, small/low tail wags) when I approached and kept 4 paws on the ground. He readily walked into the slip lead and came out of the cage with neutral BL. I had no issues walking him down the row. Once in the hall between the runs of kennels I started walking towards the lobby to take him to the office. When we got close to the lobby doors, his BL changed to fearful (body low, weight shifted back, ears back, face tight) and he did not want to walk. I offered treats which he would eat, but he was still too fearful to walk further with me. I took him to the bone yard instead to spend some time with him and he more readily walked with me there, but again, BL remained fearful. Once outside I took him off the leash and let him explore. He would occasionally explore a bit with neutral BL, but spent a large portion of the time sitting by the door with fearful BL. I started treating for very small bits of eye contact, for exploring the yard, and for moving towards me. This seemed to help boost his confidence a bit and his body language loosened (low, small tail wags, body position neutral, face softer, ears neutral, eating treats, soliciting small amounts of attention). We continued this for several minutes. After this I took him back to his kennel. Again, no issues with this and I reinforced for going back into the kennel and for unleashing.

|A2137836||Wednesday, 11 August, 2021||08/11/21 15:25 I have observed improved kennel behavior from Fausto. The barking has become much more infrequent and he now readily stands at the front with loose and wiggly BL. This afternoon I took him out to see if he wanted to come to the office. He readily came out of the cage without any issues leashing or walking down the aisle. Once outside his BL remained loose and wiggly (body position neutral, face soft, loose/low tail wags, rear end moving softly from side to side) and he readily walked, sniffed, ate treats, and solicited attention. We walked towards my office and when we got to the end of the building I noted that he became more hypervigilant. As we were walking by the fencing with some of the industrial things inside, he began cowering and was very jumpy and did not want to go forward. We backed up to a point where he was aware of those things, but not as fearful and played some find it games. He relaxed quite a bit and we were able to move forward again. Once we came to the dumpster, it was the same thing, except he did not want to proceed even with some time. We looped back towards the area he was more comfortable with and then did a bigger loop. We stayed in the grass near the outer fence and for the most part he was relaxed-neutral. When we went to cross the parking lot to walk into the back door near my office, his BL again became more fearful. In the grass by my office he stopped taking treats and did not want to proceed even with some time to adjust. We back tracked to the area he was more comfortable with and I took him back inside. He walked well throughout and no issues walking down the aisle or unleashing. Fausto's behaviors seems almost neophobic in nature. He does seem to be showing improvement though so will continue working. Foster home situation would be more ideal to help expose him to more of a "normal" home setting and what that will be like.

|A2137836||Thursday, 12 August, 2021||08/12/21 17:06 I brought Fausto out to a yard today to spend some time with him. He had loose and wiggly body langauge when I approached his cage, kept 4 paws on the ground while I was opening the door, and readily walked outside with me while maintaining the loose and wiggly body language. In the yard he readily solicited attention and performed known cues for treats (sit, touch). He also ran around a bit on his own. He seemed comfortable throughout and readily engaged as well. No interest in a tennis ball that I threw. When going back into his kennel, he walked well on leash and was easy to take the leash off of. JJ||Thursday, 12 August, 2021 5:8PM||Behavior|
|A2137836||Saturday, 14 August, 2021||Meet Fausto!
Fausto is timid around strangers but always welcoming of their treats. Fausto is an expert on leash, he is quiet, and enjoys playing with others but is at his happiest on his own exploring or playing with toys. Fausto is looking for a home with loving, responsible and patient owners that will allow him to slowly build trust and gain confidence.

|A2137836||Monday, 16 August, 2021||8/15/2021- I brought Fausto out to a yard for a bit to give him a break from the kennel and to also try and get some video for a potential foster. He was standing with neutral BL when I was approaching the cage, but this became more loose as I got closer. He was very easy to leash (stuck his head through the loop for treats) and readily walked to the yard with loose and wiggly BL. Once in the yard he explored a bit, but preferred to stay close to me and the door. He did walk around with me and sniff, as well as readily engage by making eye contact and hand targeting for snacks. He did solicit attention a few times, but did not seem as if he was always comfortable with it. I always used a petting consent test and he would often walk away when I stopped, but would shortly come back and solicit more. He walked well back to his kennel.

|A2137836||Monday, 13 September, 2021||09/13/21 12:52 I brought Fausto to the office today to check in on him. He readily approached the front of the cage with loose and wiggly BL and ccame out and walked outside happily. Once outside he walked along the building with neutral-loose BL until we got to the dumpsters. At that point, I observed more fearful BL (body position changed from neutral to low, head lowered, increased vigilance, pauses in movement). This continued as we made our way into the office. We took brief pauses to give him time to assess the environment. Once in the office, the fearful BL persisted, but he did sniff the front half of the office. I continued to treat throughout this for looking at things and moving around the office. After about 10 minutes, BL was more neutral, although, I would never say fully neutral, as he was still fearful of the back half of the office and preferred to stay near me. He did readily engage in known cues (sit, touch) and we used these, as well as engagement games, to build up confidence, which did seem to make him a bit more relaxed. When I took him back to his kennel, he readil placed his head through the slip lead and walked outside. There seemed to be some mild improvement with his fearfulness of new places/things, although this still persists. JJ||Monday, 13 September, 2021 12:57PM||Behavior|
