RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Brownnie’s bite history and his history of resource guarding, we recommend an adult only home _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to all noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Brownnie 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 Brownnie to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Brownnie to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Brownnie presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Brownnie’s previous owner notes that he may growl, bark, and snap when his food bowl, treats, or toys are touched. We recommend that Brownnie be left along while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in his future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Brownnie’s mouth, and any time something is removed he should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. He should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Brownnie’s previous owner reported that he has bitten when he was startled. In the care center, he displayed defensive behavior at intake, growling and snapping. It is important to always go slow and give Brownnie the option to walk away from any social interaction. Brownnie should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Brownnie’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Brownnie would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
