KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile Date of intake: 9/12/17 Spayed female, owner surrender Previously lived with: Adults, children Behavior toward strangers: Seeks attention, needs to approach people first Behavior toward children: Affectionate, playful, gentle Behavior toward dogs: Respectful with a familiar female dog Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Chi Chi is described as friendly, affectionate, and playful Other notes: Her owners report that she constantly seeks attention and if you aren’t petting her, she will give you her paw and push her way under your hand. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment: 9/15/17 Summary: While showing social and affectionate behavior in the first few days of her stay, Chi Chi does not seem to be acclimating to the environment well and on the day of her behavior assessment she showed a high level of fear outside in the yard, escalating to snapping (see In-Shelter Observations for additional details). Out of concern for staff safety and Chi Chi’s stress level, we are not completing a handling assessment at this time. PLAYGROUP: Chi Chi’s previous guardian reported that she has spent a short period of time with a female dog and she was gentle with her. Chi Chi is introduced to a novel female dog and initially displays nervous body language with a tucked tail.On further sessions she relaxes as she wanders around the pen briefly interacting with male and female dogs. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Date of intake: 9/12/17 During Intake, Chi Chi was friendly and readily approached the counselor. Chi Chi solicited attention by putting her paw on the counselor’s leg and her head under the counselor’s hand. She allowed all handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial: 9/12/17 During her veterinary examination, Chi Chi was sweet, easy to handle, and seemed to enjoy being held. She allowed all restraint and procedures without issue.
IN-SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: 9/15/17: Chi Chi was difficult to remove from her kennel today for playgroup. She was at the back of the kennel, pressed against the wall, head low. She was leashed and brought outside, where her fearful behavior continued: she had a tucked tail and whale eyes as the handler tried to attach the drag leash to her collar. Chi Chi then air snapped and the handler moved back. Another handler stepped in to help but Chi Chi still did not allow the leash to be clipped: she snapped again, and at that point she was returned to her kennel. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Chi Chi has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Chi Chi has displayed fearful behavior in shelter, she displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance and avoid contact. Because she is so uncomfortable, Chi Chi does not tolerate any form of human-touch and has attempted to snap when attempting to approach her or clip the leash.
