Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 07/03/17 Neutered, owner surrender Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Does not do well with strangers unless they present a treat; will growl, bark and may snap Behavior toward children: Relaxed, playful Behavior toward dogs: Fearful, does not do well Behavior toward cats: Relaxed, affectionate Resource guarding: May growl, snap over treats and toys Bite history: Daffy Duck has bitten someone though did not break skin; victim came into home unannounced and Daffy Duck bit upper thigh Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly affectionate and playful with a high activity level Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 07/05/17 Summary: Daffy Duck has been difficult to remove from and return to the kennel. Daffy Duck has allowed some handling in the care center but he is tense and avoids interaction with his new caretakers, in line with his owner’s report of Daffy Duck’s behavior around strangers. He watches and tracks the humans around him carefully at all times. Due to the behaviors observed, and out of concern for his stress level, we do not feel it is appropriate to perform a handling assessment at this time. Please review the full owner surrender profile for information on Daffy Duck’s behavior in his previous home as a guideline PLAYGROUP: According to Daffy Duck’s previous guardian, Daffy Duck was attacked by another dog so ever since he is fearful and aggressive toward them. Daffy Duck does not play with other dogs. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Daffy Duck displays nervous body language -a lowered head, tense face and tucked tail- when greeting a novel female dog. He keeps to himself as he explores the pen, never seeking to greet her. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 07/05/17 During his initial medical examination, Daffy Duck allowed handling upon a slow approach. ENERGY LEVEL: Daffy Duck is reported to have a high activity level though remains fearful in shelter and has displayed only a low activity level.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Daffy Duck’s extreme nervousness around novel dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that he be socialized in a more controlled setting. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the fear/avoidance behavior displayed in the care center, we cannot fully evaluate Daffy Duck and feel that he will be best set up to succeed through placement with a New Hope partner. We recommend only positive reinforcement-based, force-free training for Daffy Duck as aversive methods are likely to heighten his fear and increase aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Daffy Duck’s previous owner notes that he may growl and snap over toys and food. We recommend that Daffy Duck be left alone while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in his future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Daffy Duck’s mouth, and any time something is removed he should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. He should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Daffy Duck has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers, at times avoiding interaction and shying away from direct touch. Daffy Duck startles easily and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement. He displays proper warning signals as well as increasing distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.
