06/27/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Denzel came into our center after a member of the public found him tied to a gate. He was tense during intake and his initial medical exam, baring teeth when approached. However, if spoken to gently he would approach admissions counselor and briefly sniff. Denzel was difficult to remove from his kennel, baring teeth and attempting to bite leash. He would not allow collaring, jumping up and air snapping, attempting to bite, therefore tactile items were skipped. Denzel showed no interest in Toy. He approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, not stiff. Denzel must be placed with a New Hope partner. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip neutral.
