Summary: Bruno was calm coming out the kennel, when walking him outside on his relief walk he is tense with his tail tucked. When the assessor coaxed Bruno outside his body became stiff and he bared his teeth. Bruno was not comfortable coming back into the shelter, he would pancake to the ground in front of the door. PLAYGROUP: According to Bruno’s previous guardian, Bruno has spent time with dogs of all sizes and will often get into fights with large male dogs when he goes to the dog park, but gets along with small dogs. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bruno displays neutral body language when greeting a novel female dog. He is slightly sexually motivated and persistently licks her genital area. She solicits him to play, and Bruno is tolerant at first then offers appropriate correction by air snapping towards the female dog when she jumps on his back. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/4/17: During his medical examination, Bruno was social at first, he then became tense, growling and snapping at hands.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _x_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Bruno’s previous guardian reporting that he gets info fights with male dogs, the Behavior Department recommends aht Bruno only be socialized with other dogs in a more controlled setting. _X_Place with a New Hope partner- Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, as well as Bruno bite history, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the biting and underlying anxiety. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding- Bruno previous owner notes that he growls when his food bowl is approached. We recommend that Bruno be left alone 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 Bruno’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- Bruno has displayed fearful behavior in shelter, he displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance and avoid contact. Because he is so uncomfortable, Bruno does not tolerate any form of human-touch and has attempted to bite upon direct contact.
