MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/13/17: During his medical examination, Blanco was calm and allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner reports a high activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner- Due to noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Blanco be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Blanco’s presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding-Blanco’s previous owner notes that he may growl when someone touch his food bowl. We recommend that Blanco 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 Blanco’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.
