PLAYGROUP: According to Bethany’s previous guardian, Bethany has lived with one large dog and they play chase in the back yard. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bethany is initially nervous, entering the pen with a tucked tail. She becomes more relaxed and begins socializing with the small male and female dogs. When a male mounts her, she offers appropriate correction by air snapping in his direction. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 06/11/17 During her initial medical examination, Bethany was tense and anxious.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Bethany has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_House Soiling _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Bethany is very fearful at the care center and has bitten when uncomfortable. It is important to always go slow and give Bethany the option to walk away from any social interaction. Bethany should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Bethany’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Bethany would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.
