BEHAVIOR: Cookie goes for walks outside and is said to pull strongly on the leash especially when she sees another dog. She had access to a backyard where she would enjoy running outside. Since she has been reported to chase cats and has been difficult to control or distract around other dogs, she has not been introduced to other pets. In the home, she is playful.

05/17/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
In an adoptive home briefly, Cookie was reported to be affectionate with her new family. However, Cookie chased stray cats and escalated to a bite during one incident. She pulled hard on walks and becomes focused on other dogs, growling and pulling toward them. At one point she was pulling toward a medium-sized dog in a window, and when her owner picked her up to break the focus Cookie bared teeth and growled at her. In another situation, a stranger came into the yard and was speaking with Cookie’s owner; Cookie ran from the house and bit the man on the leg, ripping his pants but not breaking skin. Based upon this behavior observed when Cookie moved into a new home, we are recommending placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary positive reinforcement-based behavior modification to address this behavior, who can help Cookie feel comfortable in her new environment, and who can keep her and the humans and animals around her safe. We highly advise against placement into a home with cats or other dogs until this behavior is investigated and addressed. 4/14 SAFER: Cookie came into our center as an owner surrender citing owner’s health issues. It is reported Cookie lived with children, friendly and outgoing, gentle and playful; and is gentle and playful with dogs and cats. Cookie allowed her food, toys, and treats to be touched. Cookie may bark/growl if someone unfamiliar approaches the yard or home, but once inside Cookie relaxes and approaches them softly. Cookie walked nicely on leash for her relief walk, no pulling. During SAFER she followed at the end of the leash for Tag game, a bit playful towards the end. She will likely benefit from regular scheduled professional grooming appointments (approximately every 10-12 weeks) to keep her coat mat and tangle free for her comfort. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, playful towards end of game Squeeze 1/ 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed Toy 1.
