She stated the most recent incident was last week where she bit her while she was trying to fed her. At intake it was reported Bella Marie was tense and hard barking, she growled when approaching her crate. No handling was done due to her temperament. During SAFER Bella Marie came into the assessment room tense and growling, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Bella Marie lunge and tried to bite at the assessor when attempting to put a collar on her. She displayed no interest in the toy item during this portion of the assessment. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Bella Marie bared her teeth towards the helper dog. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Toy: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: 4. Dog approaches the helper dog while growling and baring her teeth.
