04/30/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bailey previously lived with 2 adults and children ages 9 months to 2 years old. The owner stated Bailey is relaxed and plays gentle with the children. The owner describes Bailey as playful and friendly. It was reported by the owner Bailey is house trained, crate trained, has a high activity level and well behaved when home alone. At intake it was reported Bailey was very vocal and allowed all handling. During SAFER Bailey came into the assessment room fearful and timid, she was shy but friendly towards the assessor with a slow approach. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Bailey barks at the assessor with her body tense and ears forward during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Bailey was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Bailey has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Bailey is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Bailey be given the opportunity to interact at her own pace. The behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body a bit tense, mouth closed. Tag: 4. Dog panics with vocalization combined with her tail tuck, hard barking with her hackles up. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are back. Toy: 1. No interest. 5/5 update: Since Bailey entered the Care Center she has been exhibiting extremeley fearful behavior- hiding curled up and low growling in her kennel. She was given time to acclimate before being moved to adoptions however her behavior has not improved but has begun to deteriortate. This morning she started lunging, growling, and barking at people walking by her while her kennel was being cleaned. The Behavior Department feels that due to concerns for Bailey’s well-being and the safety of staff, placement should be sought as soon as possible.
