02/25/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
02/25/17 10:23 Basic Information Clark Kent was found Saturday morning at around 9:30. He is a Chihuahua mix, male tri colored estimated to be a 1 year old. He had him for about 20 minutes. When he initially was approached, he backed away but when finder bent down he was met with a wagging tail and tons of excitement. He flinches when he’s petted so he appreciates gentleness. He took treats nicely and was able to have a leash put on. He walked with the dogs that were under the care of the finder very well with no issues. He is shy and timid and jumps back with sudden movements and loud sounds. Behavior during Intake Clark Kent was wagging his tail and jumped on fellow counselors. He licked and sniffed extended hands. He allowed counselors to interact with him. At first he backed away to get scanned for a microchip but once petted and more comfortable he then allowed it. He also allowed us to collar him and take a picture. Not to mention he also rolled over for belly rubs.

He seemed to be unable to settle and was very disconnected. At times, especially during squeeze and flank, he appeared uncomfortable, head flipping and moving away from the assessor. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Future introductions between Clark Kent and other dogs should be conducted at a slow pace. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/25/17 During his initial medical exam, Clark Kent snapped. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Clark Kent so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a a high level of activity. He is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home _X_No children (under 13): Due to Clark Kent’s discomfort with some handling and anxious behavior, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Social hyper-arousal (Clark Kent becomes quickly aroused when excited, jumping up and mounting people and toys. We recommend mental stimulation, such long-lasting food chews and puzzle toys, to positively direct his enthusiasm.) _X_Handling/touch sensitivity (Clark Kent displays discomfort with handling at times, head flipping and avoiding contact. It is important to always go slow and give Clark Kent the option to walk away from any social interaction. Clark Kent should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Clark Kent’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Clark Kent would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.) _X_Anxiety (Clark Kent displays anxious behavior at the care center- mounting, panting, whining and an inability to settle. He would benefit from an initially calm and quiet home and should be given positive things to help relieve his anxiety, such as plenty of physical and mental exercise. We have no known history on Clark Kent, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. Force free, positive reinforcement training is recommended to work on any behaviors that arise in the home.)
