07/14/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bentley lived previously with four adults, and is noted to be friendly with strangers and to play roughly with adults. He has been exposed to children (ages 8 and 12), and was playful (sometimes played rough). He also lived with a small dog. He was mainly kept in the yard in his previous home. He is described as playful and with a high activity level. In the care centers, Bentley has been difficult to handle. During his initial medical examination, he was hard barking, growling, and lunging. Please note that Bentley has a significant medical condition that may be influencing his behavior. In consideration of this condition (severe muscle atrophy of both pelvic limbs), Bentley is not a candidate to receive a SAFER aggression assessment at this time. Due to the behaviors shown thus far in the care center, along with our inability to fully assess Bentley’s behavior, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can address his medical condition and then re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment.
