Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, tail wags but a bit wary. Squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy 1: No interest. Summary: Diesel was social towards the assessor with a very slow approach and lots of coaxing, he remained a bit cautious throughout. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Due to Diesel’s DOH status, a muzzle is placed on him before he is allowed to enter the pen. When greeting a novel female dog, Diesel displays soft body language. Once in the pen Diesel is slightly sexually motivated, persistently sniffing the female’s genital area. He responds well to handler interruptions and explores the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/27/17 During his medical examination, Diesel was calm but a bit timid, he allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owners describe Diesel as a medium level energy dog in line with what has been reported in the care centers. We recommend daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised, in addition to long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to Diesel previous bite history, being a bit timid and uncomfortable with fast approach. Due to these behaviors we recommend an experienced adopter and an adult-only home. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Diesel be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Diesel to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Diesel to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Diesel presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Though observed to be human-social, Diesel may need time to warm up to the handler as he initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Diesel to interact at his own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations. _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression
