Brett and other resident dog (Yuna) got loose from their yard, ran up to a man walking a small dog.

Brett and other resident dog were loose in a park and bit a small dog over multiple areas of its body and small dog’s owner on thumb. Owner was treated at the hospital. The severity of the small dog’s injuries is not known. 3/2/1017, third stay in the care center Neutered male, owner surrender (lived in previous home for 4 years, born at home) Previously lived with: Adults, similarly sized dog (littermate), and an infant Behavior toward strangers: Initially shy but warms up and is social. Behavior toward children: Barks at resident infant Behavior toward dogs: Only gets along with resident dog (littermate) Behavior toward cats: Chases cats Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: Yes. Multiple bites reported, as described above. Bites to both humans and dogs. Housetrained: Yes Other notes: Brett has never been walked on a leash. He is crate trained. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 3/9/2017 Look: 1. Dog leans forward, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, body neutral. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, a bit distracted. Squeeze 1 / 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: No interest. Summary: Brett was a bit aloof and disconnected to assessor, but allowed all handling. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When introduced to a social female, Brett initially greeted appropriately through the fence, but when meeting off-leash he tensed, lunged, and bit the other dog on the cheek, holding on. Injury was minimal but multiple interrupters had to be used to coax Brett to release. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/8/2017 During his initial medical exam, Brett was relaxed and easy to handle.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) – Due to Brett’s bite history, we feel an adult only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_No cats – Owner reports Brett chases cats. He must not go to a home with resident cats or where he may come into contact with cats. _X_Single-pet home – Brett has a multiple bite history. He has attacked at least two and killed at least one small dog, and has also behaved with aggression toward another large dog in the care center. While he and Yuna enjoy each other’s presence, they have attacked multiple dogs together and appear to be overly-bonded. They may be better off separated, and should go to single-pet homes that can provide intensive behavior modification and counterconditioning/
03/12/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with Brett’s housemate, Brett is soft, friendly, playful and tolerant. When greeting a new playgroup female greeter dog, Brett came to the gate very soft and relaxed. He came in the yard and approached her at a comfortable pace but shortly after, t-ed her shoulders, got very stiff and lunged. Brett grabbed her cheek and would not let go. The female tried to leave and the scuffle wound up on the other side of the yard. Brett did not respond to the sound of pet corrector, air horn, or shake can. He released when pet corrector was sprayed very close to him and he was jolted by the physical cold air. Both dogs were separated without further interactions.
