07/05/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 07/01/17 Intact male, owner surrender Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Fearful; barks and growls Behavior toward children: Relaxed, playful, exuberant Behavior toward dogs: Not good with dogs Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly affectionate, playful and excitable with a high energy level Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 07/05/17 Summary: Chapo remains fearful and tense in-shelter. When attempting to engage in interaction with Chapo, he freezes, whale eyes and growls at the assessor. Out of concern for his stress level, a handling assessment will not be performed at this time. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Chapo is very nervous when interacting with calm male and female dogs, but occasionally greets them briefly. Chapo’s owner reported that he does not get along with other dogs. The Behavior Department believes that Chapo would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home, however he may be placed with polite resident dogs pending slow introductions that are supervised. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 07/02/17 During his initial medical examination, Chapo was tense though tolerated handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Chapo is reported to have a high energy level though he remains fearful in shelter and has only displayed a low activity level. We recommend daily mental and physical stimulation after a period of decompression once Chapo has acclimated to his home environment.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Chapo’s nervousness when socializing, the Behavior Department recommends that Chapo initially only be socialized in a more controlled setting. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to all noted concerns displayed in a home environment and in shelter, the behavior department recommends Chapo 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 Chapo to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Chapo to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Chapo presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Chapo has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers, at times avoiding interaction and shying away from direct touch. Chapo startles easily and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement. He displays proper warning signals as well as increasing distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash at the Care Center, Chapo is very nervous when interacting with calm male and female dogs, but occasionally greets them briefly. Chapo’s owner reported that he does not get along with other dogs. The Behavior Department believes that Chapo would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home, however he may be placed with polite resident dogs pending slow introductions that are supervised. 7/2: Chapo makes eye contact with the female helper dog, lip licks and then avoids her for the majority of the session. Once we close the gates at the end, Chapo does approach her and briefly sniff and licks her muzzle. 7/3: Chapo maintains his severe nervousness around a male dog today. He briefly sniffs the other dog, then begins to lip lick and scurry away. As the session continues he begins to hyper-salivate. 7/5: Chapo is slightly more social towards the end of his playgroup sessions, slowly leaning forward to sniff the other dog.
