Dill has no known medical problems and has been to the vet in the last 2 years. Socialization Dill is very friendly and outgoing with strangers that approach him.

When he hears a doorbell or loud noise he will bark and run around the house. Dill does not mind people touching his food or toys. He enjoys baths, being brushed, and being picked up and held. His previous owner never tried to cut his nails. For a New Family Dill’s previous owner describes him as friendly, affectionate, and playful with a high energy level. He will follow you around the house, playing with his squeaky toys and playing chase. Dill prefers dry food. He is very house trained and never has accidents inside the house.

Behavior during Intake Dill was very loose bodies during intake he was wagging his tail when I approached him. He allowed me to collar and takes his picture. He did grab the collar and try to paly tug of war a few times and had of offer him a rope toy to have him let go. When playing with the rope toy he was very careful to grab just the rope and did not go near my fingers and when pulling the rope he was willing to give the rope back.

09/20/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Limited Profile Date of intake 9/18/2017 Unaltered male, owner surrender (in previous home for 2 years, since he was a puppy) Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Not playful, may be assertive Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly, affectionate, playful with a high energy level. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 9/20/2017 Toy: 1. Minimal interest, does not engage. This may be due to environment as owner reports Dill enjoys playing with squeaky toys and playing chase. Summary: Dill allows minimal handling from caretakers and snapped at the assistant during his assessment. Out of concern for his stress levels, we feel Dill is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see his owner surrender summary for more info. PLAYGROUP: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Dill is a bit tense, follows, sniffs, slightly posturing to mount. Due to concerning behavior displayed during handling, Dill is no longer a safe candidate for off leash interaction with dogs. Behavior history around other dogs is not known. The behavior department recommends that Dill be given time to decompress outside of the shelter environment before immediately introducing him to unfamiliar dogs. Future introductions should be conducted at a slow pace to respectful dogs. INTAKE BEHAVIOR Date of intake 9/18/2017 During intake, Dill was loose and playful, tugging on leash. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial 9/18/2017 During his initial medical exam, Dill was tense and growling, grabbed and tugged on leash. ENERGY LEVEL: His owner reports Dill as having a high level of energy which matches what we have seen at the care center. Dill will require daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Dill is with novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to distance increasing behavior shown in the care center in addition to snapping towards a handler, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Dill was alert and cautious, not comfortable with handlers. It is important to always go slow and give Dill the option to walk away from any social interaction. Dill may do best in an intially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
