A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Hi Blitz! This guy loves to chase a ball, seems to be house trained, and knows how to sit perfectly for a treat. He takes them ever so gently out of your hand like a perfect gentleman, walks well on the leash (although he could use a little more practice), and seems very interested in other dogs. Are you looking for a play buddy to chase the ball with? Come and meet Blitz today at the BACC!
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Basic Information:Blitz was brought in as a stray by police so history is unknown. He is approximately a 3 year old, large mixed breed male who was not neutered prior to coming into the shelter.
Previously lived with:1 Adult, 1 Dog
How is this dog around strangers?no info
How is this dog around children?no info
How is this dog around other dogs?Blitz AKA CONAN lived with one other dog in the home but his behavior is unknown at this time.
How is this dog around cats?no info
Resource guarding:no info
Bite history:no info
Medical Notesno info
Behavior Notes:Blitz was hard barking in the crate when he came into the center. Officers stated he was difficult to contain so kennel staff brought back Blitz. Counselor did not conduct any handling at the time of intake. When counselor went back to his kennel Blitz was licking counselor hand through the bars.
Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment: 17-Apr-2018
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, eyes are averted, and tail is in neutral position with a relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Paw squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Paw squeeze 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Toy: 3. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Body is stiff.
Summary: Conan was playful and friendly. He allowed all handling. He was a bit stiff with the toy, and mouthing the assessor hand-no pressure.
PLAY GROUP :
Conan was brought in as stray with one other male resident dog but limited information was provided, so his past behavior around other dogs is unknown.
4/10: When off leash at the Care Centers, Conan is extremely anxious and sexually motivated. Once the pen door opens, he immediately sniffs the greeters genitals and slowly becomes frustrated when she moves away.
5/5: When off leash at the Care Centers, Conan is sexually motivated, and attempts to mount the greeter, immediately after the gate opens.
Date of intake: 9-Apr-2018
Summary: Hard barking in kennel, no handling attempted
Date of initial: 10-Apr-2018
Summary: Playful, active
ENERGY LEVEL: Conan displayed medium energy and movement throughout assessment. We have no history on Conan so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. He will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Recommendations: No young children (under 5)
Recommendations comments: No young children: Due to potential (toy) guarding behavior observed in the care center; we recommend no young children. Older, dog savvy children can be considered as long as the adults feel confident that Conan can be left alone while engaged with toys. Behavior modification for guarding behavior can be found at aspcapro.org.
Potential challenges: Resource guarding
Potential challenges comments:
Resource guarding: Conan was observed to become tense with the toy item. We recommend that Conan be left along while engaged with toys, and that guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in his future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Conan’s mouth, and any time something is removed he should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. He should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games.
