04/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Katie was in a home environment for two weeks, during which time she demonstrated highly fearful behavior and fear-based lunging and barking at nearly anyone she passes of a duration and intensity that makes her difficult to manage. She will likely require significant behavior modification and counterconditioning work before placement back into an adoptive home. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide for her behavioral needs and address her high anxiety in order to improve her quality of life and set her up to be a successful family pet. Please refer to profile memos and to the summary provided by the behavior consultant in her previous home for additional details. 3/22 SAFER (pre-adoption): Baby previously lived with 1 adult and another dog. The owner stated when strangers come over the house; Baby keeps her distance and slowly approaches to sniff, but takes some time to warm up and will later allow gentle petting.
