Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper dog: A1068168 Champaign came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. During SAFER Champaign came into the assessment room nervous and timid, she was a bit social towards the assessor with a slow approach. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Champaign was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Champaign was easy to handle when engaged with the item. It was reported Champaign has a previous bite history where she bit an officer on his index finger on his right hand, when he attempted to take off a bag that was tied up to a chain around her neck. She did not bark or growl at the officer. Champaign showed some discomfort during the assessment nervous, yarning, avoiding the handler, head shy and skittish. Champaign has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Champaign is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Champaign be given the opportunity to interact at their own pace. The behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body tense, mouth closed, and lip licks. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, or low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1 & 2: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes tense. Flank squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes tense. Toy: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: 3.

**Name Change from Zeta to Champaign**
Zeta was laying down on her bed as I approached her kennel. She was reluctant to get up, but allowed me to leash her and lead her outside. Once in the pen, Zeta walked around for a bit with a hunched body and tucked tail, then jumped on the bench next to me. She allowed me to gently pet her chest and her head, but gave no signals that she wanted me to contiune. She was shaking for the entire session. She was very easy to leash and bring back inside, running right into her kennel. She is very shut down.
3/17 update: Zeta was nervous in her kennel with a tense face and lip licking as I went to take her out. She was easy to leash and take into the behavior room. Once in the room, she was very shut down. She wandered for about a minute, then sat against the wall and did not move until the end of the session. She sniffed at treats, but did not eat any. She was easy to leash and eager to get back into her kennel.
3/18 Update: Zeta was relax in her kennel and allowed me to leash her and walk her to the play pens. Once inside she explored her surroundings with a neutral body. I sat down on a bench and she followed me but became uncomfortable immediately. Her body was shaking and she held one paw up for a few minutes. If I gave her a few pets she would become tense. I decided not to give her attention and let her relax. After ten minutes she finally stop shaking and layed down. When a female dog was placed in a pen next to ours, she showed interested in greeting but did not follow through unless I stood up and walk away from the bench. She had a soft body when she greeted at the gate and I was able to get her away by sitting on the bench because she followed me.
3/19 Update: Champaign displayed majority of the same behavior from the day before. She became stiff and growl when a male dog was walking pass our pens.
3/22: Champaign was eager to get out of her kennel and was easy to lead out into the pens. Once in the pen, she paced around with a tense face and a low tail. She would not come to me when called and showed no interest in me. She was easy to leash and lead back to her kennel.
