09/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bananna was bought into the shelter as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. Behavior during intake: Bananna was tense and would growl when approached. During SAFER Bananna came into the assessment room fearful and needed some time to come around she had a tense body posture when interacting with the assessor, she allowed all handling items to be conducted with a slow approach. Bananna was a bit fearful during the tag interaction, with her tail tucked but continued to follow. Bananna was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Bananna appears to be sociable, but fearful and needs a slow approach, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “experienced” adopter. (We recommend no children in the home). Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is tense and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body tense, mouth closed, tail tucked, ears back. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, tail tucked and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Toy 1: No interest. Playgroup:When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bananna greets the male dog displaying neutral body language. She chooses to keep to herself when exploring the pen, low growling when the greeter dog approaches her. Update 9/22/16: Due to her in-kennel behavior since arriving at the care center- lip curling and growling when humans approach her- Bananna is not suitable for the adoptions room. In the interest of her well-being, placement should be sought as soon as possible.

Bananna was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bananna mostly keeps to herself and offers appropriate body language and warnings when dogs come too close for her comfort level.

She chooses to keep to herself when exploring the pen, low growling when the greeter dog approaches her. 9/23: Bananna greets the other dog displaying neutral body language. She is uncomfortable when the male dog greets her face to face, displaying a look away and a stiff body. Bananna chooses to distance herself from him walks away.
