04/17/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
04/10/17 10:48 Blaze is friendly and outgoing towards strangers and usually likes to approach for a good sniff. Blaze can be unpredictable so his owner usually has him on a leash. He has never spent time around children and plays exuberantly with adults. He has seen dogs on the street and will usually lunge and bark at them. His owner has never let him approach other dogs or cats so it’s unknown how he would react when actually face to face with them. He has never bitten another animal but has bitten a human three separate times. The instances were each at random and towards people who he usually sees on a daily basis. Blaze isn’t bothered during loud noises. He growls when putting his food bowl down or when taking away a treat so his owner usually leaves him in another room when placing the bowl down and then will let him into the kitchen to eat. He does the same with toys but when his owner says drop it, he will listen and then she can take it from him. When held from something he wants, Blaze will struggle towards it for a minute until he realizes his owner is in charge. His owner doesn’t wake him from his slumber because of how unpredictable he is and will let him know she’s coming into the room or walking passed him. The groomers don’t allow him there anymore because he’s tempremental when having his nails clipped and being bathed and will usually growl, bark, and try to snap. However, he does enjoy being brushed. When an unfamiliar person approaches his home he will bark and then when they come in he will either warm-up or be stand-offish depending on the person. He’s friendly when an unfamiliar person approaches his owner. Blaze is friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, protective and excitable towards his humans. He has a high activity level and enjoys chewing and playing fetch with his squeaky ball, chewing and taring up stuffed animals, chewing on bones, wrestling, and herding people when in the home. He’s been kept mostly indoors and will hang out in the same room his owner’s in. He sleeps in his crate with the door opened or in his owner’s son’s room. He is very-house trained and only goes potty outside on cement or trees. He’s well-behaved when left home alone but will sometimes destroy his own bed. He has a crate but the door is left open because he growls at his owner when she tries to close it. He pulls on leash and knows sit, stay, drop it. His owner collared on intake.

04/20/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
DVM Intake Exam Castrated male KNOWN HISTORY: 4/17/17 Neutered, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Lunges and barks at dogs he sees outside Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Growls when his food bowl is touched or when the owner tries to take away bones or treats. Bite history: Yes, Blaze has bitten three times. All of the bites were without a known trigger. He bit the owner’s son twice when the son was laying in bed and Blaze jumped up and bit him. He once bit the owner’s friend in the leg when he walked out of the room. All bites resulted in broken skin, exact severity was not stated. Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Blaze is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, protective and excitable towards his humans with a high activity level. Other notes: Will growl, barks, and snap during grooming. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/20/17 Summary: Blaze has displayed concerning behavior at the care center. When attempting to put him back in his kennel, Blaze lunged, growled, and snapped at the handler. Due to his bite history in the home, and due to this behavior at the care center, we feel Blaze is not a candidate for a handling assessment at this time. This is out of safety concerns and out of concer for his stress levels. Please see his owner surrender profile for a full summary of his behavior in his previous home. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog Blaze displays a low, fearful body upon entering the yard. He turns his head away from approach. He offers a lip curl and low growl when approached again. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/17/17 ENERGY LEVEL: Blaze is a young, enthusiastic, 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 (under 13): Due to Blaze’s multiple bite history, we recommend an adult only home. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to all noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Blaze be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Blaze to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Blaze to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Blaze presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Blaze’s previous owner notes that he may growl when his food bowl is approached or when things attempt to be taken from him. We recommend that Blaze be left along 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 Blaze’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. _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Blaze’s previous owner stated that he will growl and snap during grooming. It is important to always go slow and give dog the option to walk away from any social interaction. Blaze should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Blaze’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Blaze may do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression: Blaze has a multiple-bite history and has bitten without any known trigger or warning. Blaze needs careful behavior modification and management to prevent future bites. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods for Blaze as more aversive techniques are likely to increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: Blaze’s previous owner stated he barks and lunges at dogs outside. Blaze may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to look at you.
