06/07/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chuck Norris came to us as a stray so we don’t have any behavior information other than what has been observed in the shelter environment. Upon intake Chuck Norris was unable to be handled by the admissions counselor as he was lunging and growling and became reactive when approached with a slip lead. In the kennel Chuck Norris approaches with soft body language. Once the slip lead is presented he becomes reactive and begins to hard bark and lunge towards the handler. Another handler was used to distract him with treats in order to remove him from the kennel. When out of the kennel Chuck Norris pulls a bit strongly, but has calm and relaxed body language. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items without displaying any signs of aggression. Chuck Norris did become a bit uncomfortable during the squeeze test, having tense body language for both attempts. He only displayed minimal interest in the toy on this portion of the assessment. We believe Chuchk Norris would do best in a home with an experienced owner and no young children. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, and open mouth. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw, body a bit tense. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw, body a bit tense. Toy: 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks and mouths, then turns away. Chuck Norris was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with other dogs at the Care Center, Chuck Norris is anxious as he paces in the pen. He is sensitive to the novel sounds in the environment. He greets the other dog but becomes uncomfortable when play is solicited. 6/8/16 Update: Due to Chuck Norris’ behavior in his kennel- barking, lunging onto the bars and air snapping- the Behavior Department does not feel that he is a suitable candidate for the Adoptions room and that placement should be sought as soon as possible.
