08/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Boy previously lived with adults and children ages 2 and 14 years old. The owner stated Boy is fearful of strangers, he will bark and growl. The owner mentioned Boy gets along well with children and plays with them. It was reported by the owner Boy lived with another dog and they got along very well. The owner describes Boy as a fearful, shy but yet playful with those he is comfortable with and he is also house trained. At intake it was reported Boy growl and barked at the counselor and attempted to bite the scanner, no handling was conducted due to his behavior. Due to the behavior demonstrated in the shelter the behavior department believes that Boy is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time. Boy was tolerant of handling during the medical exam, he was very nervous and allowed handling with a slow approach. In the kennel Boy can be seen with stiff body language, tail tucked whale eyes with his hackles raised. Boy would urinate and defecate when coming out of his kennel; he would consistently keep his distance away from the handler and the assessor the entire time. When attempting to approach him he would tuck in his butt and run away every chance he can get. A SAFER assessment will not be conducted due to safety and stress level concerns. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Dog-dog: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Boy is very nervous, wandering in the pen with a tense face. He mostly keeps to himself in the group of male and female dogs.
