07/28/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/28/17 10:28 Boogie as a young, very energetic dog that his owner described as being friendly and outgoing. When meeting new people he will approach with his tail wagging, and when he see’s his owner talking to them he will calm down. He has lived with a number of small children and was very tolerant of them. He would sit down and enjoyed being pet when they would give him attention, he has no history of biting or growling at any of the children. He has also lived with other cats and was unbothered by them. He has not lived with other dogs but would be curious when he saw them on the street walking. He is unbothered by thunderstorms and fireworks. His owner stated that he has no guarding issues with food or toys, and is well behaved when being bathed and groomed. He likes to drink the water and play in the rain. Some of his favorite toys are ball, rope toys and squeaky toys, and enjoys playing fetch and tug of war. When home alone he would benefit from being crated because he is known to get into their belongings. When home he likes to follow his owners around and be in the same room as them, relaxing in the evenings watching tv with them. He needs further house training, as he is not on a set schedule and does have occasional accidents in the home. He eats both wet and dry food and has a good appetite.

08/01/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 7/28/17 Unaltered Male, owner surrender Previously lived with: Adults and small children Behavior toward strangers: Friendly with a wagging tail Behavior toward children: Tolerant and enjoyed being pet by them Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unbothered Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: No Energy level/descriptors: High activity level Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 8/1/17 Look:1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity:1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 5. Follows at end of leash then becomes easily aroused with his body tensed and fixated on the leash. Dog begins to growl and slowly de-escalates. Summary: Boogie was friendly and social towards the assessor in the beginning of the assessment but when tag item was performed he was easily aroused and fixated on biting the leash. The handlers attempted to distracted him but he would not stop, the assessment was then over and after some time he became relaxed. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Boogie is hesitant to approach a novel female and displays a fearful posture- head low, tail tightly tucked. He tenses his body when a novel male is introduced to the group, and he persistently follows him, stiffening his body. According to Boogie’s previous guardian, Boogie has not lived with other dogs, so his past behavior around them is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Boogie be placed with female dogs that match his calm sociability. All introductions should be conducted slowly and under supervision. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/28/17: During his medical examination, Boogie was very energetic and strong, resisting exam/restraint but with no reactivity.
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_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to noted concerns displayed in the shelter environment, the behavior department recommends Boogie 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 Boogie to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Boogie to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Boogie presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Leash-biting: Boogie has been observed to leash bite when overstimulated, quickly escalating to a state of arousal and becomes difficult to manage. To prevent rehearsal of this undesired behavior, we recommend daily mental and physical stimulation to direct Boogie’s energy and enthusiasm onto more appropriate outlets rather than the leash in addition to redirecting Boogie’s attention (with treats) onto his handler to learn to “focus”.
