01/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Avacado walks calmly on leash. He was shy but friendly during the assessment – low body and tail, but trying to stay close. Avacado was shy and nervous during handling, but had soft body language. He became fearful while playing tag. Avacadotook the toy away but had soft body language. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter. Avacadois somewhat fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler. The behavior department advises that future adopters should be able to provide positive experiences for Avacado. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Avacado be given the opportunity to interact at their own pace. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Avacado is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, shy body language, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends. Dog is likely crouching, may have long lip or lip lick. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy.
01/12/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Avacado is anxious. He begins to whine and pace, seeking exit from the yard. He approaches the helper dog after some time and attempts to mount. During his stay at the care center Avadado has been anxious and distracted, spending his time off leash whining, pacing and attempting to exit the yard. He came into the care center as a stray, so his in home behaviors around other dogs are unknown. Based on these observations the behavior department recommends that Avacado does not go to a home with other dogs until he is allowed time to acclimate to his new environment.
