08/29/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/29/17 17:45 Basic Information: BG is a 2 year old, black and white male dog. He was purchased off of a breeder but the owner cannot keep her due to the aggression toward another dog in the home. He last went to the vet about 7 months ago and has no known health problems. Socialization: Around strangers BG is friendly but around children he shows signs of aggression and growls at the new baby in the home. He plays somewhat rough with adults and doesn’t play with the children. BG doesn’t like the other large breed dog in the home and is aggressive toward her but is playful towards the smaller breed dog in the home. He has never bitten another person but has bitten another dog. Behavior: BG isn’t bothered by people touching his food bowl or taking a toy or bone away from him. He doesn’t mind the bath and won’t try to jump out at all. For a New Family to Know: BG is friendly and has a medium activity level. He loves to run around and play with ball and stuffed toys. He eats dry, Pedigree dog food. He is house trained and goes potty outside on the grass and well behaved in the yard. His commands he knows are sit and he goes running and jogging for exercise. Off the leash, BG will stay close by your side. Behavior During Intake: BG walked in slowly with a stiff body and head down. I attempted to scan him for a microchip but he tried backing away numerous times and it took a few minutes before I could get a result. He allowed me to take a picture of him and when I then bent down to his level and tried petting him he started to slowly wag his tail.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 8/29/17 During his initial medical exam, BG was very tense. ENERGY LEVEL: BG’s previous owner describes him as having a medium level of activity. He is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children _X_Single pet home/no dog parks _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to BG’s known bite history (having two separate altercations with housemate dog), the behavior department recommends placement with a New Hope rescue partner who can appropriately provide follow up on behavior around dogs; force free, positive reinforcement training only is advised. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: BG’s previous owner reported he growls at the new baby in the home. It is important to always go slow and give BG the option to walk away from any social interaction. BG should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be BG’s choice to approach a new person or thing. BG would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. _X_Bite history/risk of future aggression
