07/13/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cash previously lived with adults and has been around children of all ages. The owner states Cash is very friendly, affectionate and playful around strangers, adults and children. The owner describes Cash as friendly, affectionate, confident, and excitable. The owner mentioned Cash is house trained, has a high activity level and she will pull very hard on a leash. At intake it was reported Cash was friendly and allowed all handling. During SAFER Cash came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, she was friendly and playful towards the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Cash was easily aroused, mouths the leash and slowly de-escalates during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Cash was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Cash appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. The behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter and we recommend a thorough dog to dog interaction before being place into a permanent home. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog gets easily aroused, mouths the leash and slowly de-escalates. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Dog-dog: Cash is initially tolerant of the male greeting her but begins to growl and move toward him when his greeting becomes too long for her comfort level. She becomes stiff and stands tall, placing her head over his back. Update 8/23: Cash’s behavior in her kennel has deteriorated over the last week or so. She has been jumping up at the bars, snarling with a hard stare, barking and snapping at staff and at the public when approached. At this time we feel that Cash is rapidly deteriorating within the Care Center and we recommend that she be placed as soon as possible for her well-being and for the safety of the staff.
07/09/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Cash’s previous owner did not provide any information on Cash’s history around other dogs. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Cash is uncomfortable around other dogs. She becomes stiff and will offer correction by growling and lunging towards the other dog when they are too close for her comfort level. Due to this reactivity towards other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that Cash be placed in a home with no other dogs. 7/9: Cash begins to show barrier frustration while greeting the other dog through the gate. She initially displays soft and wiggly body language but her arousal level increases and she beings to bark and muzzle punch the gate. A muzzle is placed on her and she is allowed in the pen. Once in the pen, Cash greets the other dog, standing tall on her tip toes, and allows the other dog to greet her. She shakes off and wanders in the pen, displaying softer body language. The muzzle is removed. Cash is initially tolerant of the male greeting her but begins to growl and move toward him when his greeting becomes too long for her comfort level. She becomes stiff and stands tall, placing her head over his back. The session is ended. 7/22: Cash displays stiff body language as she greets another dog through a gate. She is muzzled before being allowed into the pen. Once in the pen, she exchanges sniffs with the other dog before becoming stiff and lunging at him. The session is ended.
