MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 8/6/17 During her initial medical exam, Chichi was tense. ENERGY LEVEL: Chichi’s previous owner described her as having a low level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Chichi is currently with touch and novel stimuli, as well as her owner’s report that she is fearful of children, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Chichi’s owner reported that she was fearful of new people. In the care center, she also appears fearful. It is important to always go slow and give Chichi the option to walk away from any social interaction. Chichi should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Chichi’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Chichi would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
