08/28/16 16:30 Basic Info: Chuck A1087654 is a 5yr old male tan mini Poodle/Shih Tzu mix who was purchased at a pet store in the Dominican Republic 5yrs ago and is being surrendered due to his unpredictable behavior since being attacked by a pitbull a few months ago. He was last seen by a veterinarian 6months ago and currently has no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Around strangers Chuck is shy for several minutes. He hasn’t been around other animals but was relaxed, affectionate & playful with a 1yr old and the adults (most of the time) in the home. Chuck has snapped (but has not made physical contact with anyone) at different family members and they stated they don’t trust him around strangers. Behavior: Chuck hasn’t had his nails trimmed, he doesn’t mind having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved or with being held/restrained. According to the owner Chuck hasn’t let anyone try and groom him. He’ll growl, bark and or run away/hide from them. If someone unfamiliar approaches the home/family member he’ll bark and or growl at them. For A New Family To Know: Chuck is described as friendly (sometimes), affectionate (sometimes) & mellow (at times) with a medium activity level. When the owner is home he follows them around sometimes. Chuck is an indoor mostly dog who’s housebroken and is walked 2x a day where he only pulls on his leash when he’s excited. He sleeps on a dog bed or around the home and eats dry & wet Pedigree food 2x a day. When left home alone Chuck is well behaved but will bark if he hears noises. Intake Behavior: Chuck had a semi tense body and allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of with assistance from the owner. He was then picked up/carried and placed into a kennel with ease by the owner as he they didn’t trust him.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chuck was surrender to us. According to his previous owner around strangers Chuck is shy for several minutes. He hasn’t been around other animals but was relaxed, affectionate & playful with a 1yr old and the adults (most of the time) in the home. Chuck has snapped (but has not made physical contact with anyone) at different family members and they stated they don’t trust him around strangers. he doesn’t mind having his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved. Chuck was difficult to remove from his kennel showing teeth, growling and lunges at the rope. He did not show any social behavior. Once he was out of the kennel he exposes his front teeth, grabbing at the leash, spinning on the leash. The behavior team decided to place him back in his kennel as he was difficult to handle. Due to the behavior demonstrated in the shelter, the behavior department believes that Chuck is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home.
