04/05/17 15:28 Basic information: Colby is a 1 yr. old Maltese mix. The Owner got her from a friend as a gift; she has owned Colby for over a year. The owner surrendered Colby because his behavior has become too unpredictable (does not allow handling). Colby has never been taken to a vet. Socialization: Around strangers Colby is friendly with women but growls and barks at men. Colby has not lived with children. Colby has lived with two cat, Colby was relaxed around them and usually does not interact with them. Colby has never bitten anyone but does attempt to bite when being handled. Behavior: The owner stats that Colby does not allow anyone to mover his food or treats while he is eating, when someone takes his toys away or when someone disturbs him while sleeping (he growls and tries to bite the hand of the person). Colby hates to be brushed and given bathes and has never had his nails trimmed (he tries to bite anyone who attempts to do so). When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches a family member or his home retreats and growls at them. The owner does not know how Colby is around loud noises such as storms or fireworks. For a new family to know: The owner describes Colby as shy and pushy with a medium activity level. His favorite activity is towalk outside with his owner. In the home Colby tends to follow the owner around the house and is kept mainly indoors. Colby sleeps in the floor of the bedroom on a dog bed. Colby was fed Pedigree dry and wet dog food three times a day. He is somewhat house trained but does have accidents in the home when not walked, when outside he goes to the bathroom on or around trees and grass.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 4/5/17 Unaltered Male, Owner Surrender (Lived with owner for a year) Previously lived with: Adults and 2 cats Behavior toward strangers: Growls Behavior toward cats: Relaxed Resource guarding: Yes, growls Bite history: None Reported Housetrained: Partially, will have accidents if not walked. Energy level/descriptors: shy with medium activity level Other notes: Colby will growl and snap if disturbed while sleeping or groomed. He growled and bared teeth upon intake. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 4/7/2017 Toy: 1. Minimal interest. Dog responded to squeak sound, briefly sniffed, but did not engage. Summary: Colby would not allow collaring, therefore remaining tactile portions of assessment were skipped out of concern for his stress levels. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/5/17 During his initial medical exam Colby was tense, growling and snapped ENERGY LEVEL: His owner describes Colby as having a medium activity level, in the center Colby has been quiet and tense with low energy, though this may be due to stressful environment.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only X__No children (under 13) – Due to how uncomfortable Colby is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner – Colby has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope Partner that can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement based) and re-evlauate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_House soiling – Colby is reportedly housetrained but will have accidents in the home if not walked. We recommend a consistent walk schedule to decrease any household accidents, as well as wee wee pads placed in the home for in-between walks. _X_Resource guarding – – Colby is reported to growl and snap over food. He should be left alone while eating, and should be taught the cue “drop” and other trade up games so Colby learns that dropping food or having people around while he is eating is rewarding. Behavior modification protocols for food guarding behavior can be found on aspcapro.org _X_Handling/touch sensitivity -Colby has been hesitant to interact and allow handling during his time at the care center. Interactions and petting should never be forced. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression — On several occasions in the care center Colby has given high-level warnings (growling, snapping, baring teeth). A period of decompression is advised before introduction to new and unfamiliar situations.
