DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bozeman displays soft and social body language with male and female dogs. He may attempt to mount the other dogs, but responds well to handler interruption. Bozeman was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Bozeman be placed with resident dogs that match his calm sociability and are tolerant of mounting behavior.
4/18: Bozeman displays soft body language when greeting a novel female dog. He is sexually motivated, persistently licking her genital area and attempting to mount. He responds to handler interruptions and explores the pen.
4/20-4/21: Bozeman displays soft body language when greeting a novel male dog. He slowly attempts to mount him, only responding to handler interruptions momentarily before attempting to mount again.
4/22- 4/23: Bozeman attempts to mount male and female dogs, but responds well to handler interruptions and explores the pen.
During his medical examination, Bozeman was food motivated and also growls when restrained by the neck.
We have no history on Bozeman so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, 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: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
