10/01/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Dana came into the Care Center as a stray; her past behaviors in a home are unknown. Initial examination: Dana was very nervous, tense and timid, she does not tolerate petting. Upon intake: Dana was very nervous and shy. Her tail was tucked, she allowed counselor to photograph but did not allow collaring. During Safer: Dana is tense with fearful body language this behavior was maintained outside of the kennel. Dana appears to be more relaxed outside of the Care Center. When entering the assessment room Dana was fearful with her tail tucked and tense. She is wary of her surroundings and does not feel comfortable with petting. Not all handling items were able to be conducted as Dana was very fearful and avoided any direct contact. She displayed no interest in any of the resource items during this portion of the assessment. Dana does feel comfortable with petting, and needs sometime to gain trust. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue that can provide positive reinforcement based behavior modification for Dana is the best option at this time. Toy: 1. No interest. Playgroup: When introduced to a calm male dog, Dana is nervous, displaying a tucked tail and low body. She initially avoids greeting the male dog and keeps to herself as she explores the pen. She eventually greets him briefly, continuing to display nervous body language.
09/28/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Dana was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around other dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Dana displays nervous body language when greeting male and female dogs. She mostly keeps to herself, only greeting the other dogs briefly, as she explores the pen. She continues to display nervous body language and is tolerant of the other dog’s face to face greetings. The Behavior Department believes that Dana would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home, however a dog-dog interaction can be conducted with a potential adopter’s dog to assess Dana’s comfort level. 9/28: Dana was initially introduced to another female dog due to the fact that she is in heat. She is nervous, greeting the other female with a tense face and a tucked tail and initially avoids greeting her. She keeps to herself but is tolerant of the other female’s face to face greetings as she explores the pen. 9/29: When introduced to a calm male dog, Dana is nervous, displaying a tucked tail and low body.
