Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Budda walks calmly on leash. He was sociable when he meets the assessor with a soft body, wagging tail but he became uncomfortable with handling when the behavior team tries to collar him for the assessment. Budda wrinkles his muzzle and snapped at the handler. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources portion, Budda was not interested in toys. He does not approach other dog, attempts to exit. Budda was surrender to us. According to his previous owner around strangers, he can be both friendly and outgoing, will allow you to pet him, but then will become fearful. He previously lived with a 6 year old child and he was playful and respectful of the child but would become somewhat rough. He was around a female small Shih/Tzu and he was relaxed and playful around her. He does not allow you to take away his food bowl, water bowl or toy away, he will growl. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog. Turns body to side in relation to other dog, or exits. Helper: A1082852
