Circumstances of the bite are unknown. Skin was broken but no medical treatment was sought. Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Broadway is described as affectionate and playful with a moderate level of activity. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 8/9/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 5.

Summary: Broadway became quickly over aroused during tag, jumps up on the assessor, and snapped twice, targeting the assessor’s torso. The rest of the handling portions of the assessment were not conducted. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 8/8: When introduced off leash to a female dog, Broadway approaches and greets politely by sniffing and offering a brief wag. INTAKE BEHAVIOR Upon intake, Broadway had a loose body and was soliciting attentions. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 8/7/17 During his initial medical exam, Broadway had a soft body and allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Broadway’s previous owner described him as having a moderate level of activity. He may have a low threshold for arousal and needs guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when he becomes overstimulated. He will need daily mental and physical stimulation and exercise, and a force-free, positive reinforcement-based training class may help him to learn impulse control and to train desirable behaviors that can be rewarded.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Broadway’s bite history to a child, as well as how quickly he becomes over aroused, we recommend an adult only home _X_No cats _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Broadway became quickly over aroused during his assessment, snapping at the assessor. He also has a bite history to a child; exact circumstances of the bite(s) are not known. The behavior department feels that Broadway’s low threshold for aggression and rapid escalation poses a potential safety risk unless appropriately managed and modified. Potential challenges: _X_Social hyper-arousal: Broadway has displayed low threshold for arousal, rapidly escalating and quickly tipping over to aggression, snapping at the assessor when stimulated during tag. Immediate intervention and consultation with a qualified veterinary behaviorist/professional trainer is strongly recommended to aid in addressing this issue to prevent further behavioral concerns that may appear in the future if not treated right away. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Tetris to new and unfamiliar situations. _X_ Handling/touch sensitivity: Broadway’s previous owner stated that he is uncomfortable when his tail is touched. It is important to avoid touching Broadway’s tail at this time and to be cautious him in other areas as we do not know where he may have other sensitivities. Positive reinforcement, reward based training should be used to pair touch with good things such as food rewards in order to teach Dog to be more comfortable with this. _X_ Multiple bite history/risk of future aggression: While often social and interactive, Broadway has been noted to escalate quickly and with little warning.
