ENERGY LEVEL: Dante is reported to have medium to high activity level in a home environment in line with what we have seen in the care center. We recommend daily mental and physical stimulation as an outlet to direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to the very high level of guarding and the low level of arousal Dante has displayed at the care center, we recommend an adult only home. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Dante has displayed a very high level of resource guarding and low level of arousal seen at the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Dante to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Dante to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Dante presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Dante has displayed a very high level of resource guarding at the care center, attempting to bite the hand when it came near the toy he was in possession of. For this reason, we advise against ever removing items from Dante’s possession without safely trading for an item or greater or equal value. Guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended to aid in safely managing/modifying this behavior in a new home environment. _X_Social hyper-arousal: Dante has displayed low threshold for arousal, rapidly escalating and quickly tipping over to aggression, jumping up and growling and snapping at the assessor. Immediate intervention and consultation with a qualified veterinary behaviorist/professional trainer is strongly recommended to aid in addressing this issue to prevent further behavioral concerns that may appear in the future if not treated right away. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Dante to new and unfamiliar situations. _X_Anxiety: Dante displays a high level of anxiety in the care center, panting and pacing in the assessment room. We do not know if this behavior will appear in a new home environment. If it does, we recommend positive reinforcement, force-free training only. _X_Leash-biting
