Dolly A1114844 is at risk for a New Hope Only behavior determination. She has been social with her caretakers during interactions, but quickly escalated to a bite of the assess-a-hand during the Toy portion of the SAFER assessment, was unable to readily settle, and remained stiff when handlers disengaged in interaction.

A volunteer writes: Well HELLOOOOOOO DOLLY! This little firecracker was begging for my attention in her kennel. Tap tap tap, went her paws, and thump thump thump went her tail each time that I passed. I finally succumbed to her charm and out we went. Dolly seems to be very housetrained and eagerly did her business. On our walk she was so excited that she jumped up a few times on me. Thankfully, her petite body was in no danger of knocking me over, but suffice it to say Dolly could use a little manners. In the yard she got busy chewing up a stuffy right away. As she ran through the pen, cotton puffs trailing her, her joy was palpable. Once Dolly settled down a bit, I got a closer look at her. She has little splotches of white fur on her face giving her a speckled hen appearance. Top it all off with her low-rider body and she’s a sight to behold. Dolly engages in running, bouncy play in doggy playgroup and seems tolerant with other dogs. Who needs to go see a Broadway show when our Dolly will provide all the entertainment you need. Ask to meet her today!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
CANINE BEHAVIOR FOR Dolly A1114844 KNOWN HISTORY: None 06/09/17 Intact female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 06/13/17 Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth Tag: 1. Dog stands with her tail low and wagging, and comes toward the Assessor in a friendly manner when the Assessor ceases moving. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed or back. Toy: 5. Dog growls and snaps. Summary: Dolly readily allowed all handling without issue though she may need behavior modification to address potential guarding concern. PLAYGROUP: Dolly was brought in as a stray but her finder reported that she displayed stiff body language when introduced to his female dog. When introduced to a female dog here at the Care Center, Dolly displayed similar behaviors. Dolly is able to engage in play with male dogs. The Behavior Team feels that she would be most comfortable in a home with only male dogs who match her gentle play style. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 06/09/17 Upon intake, Dolly allowed all handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 06/10/17 During her initial medical examination, Dolly was affectionate. ENERGY LEVEL: Dolly displays a medium activity level in the care centers; we cannot be sure of her behavior in a home environment though we recommend daily mental and physical stimulation as an outlet to direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Dolly’s low sociability towards female dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that she not be taken to dog parks. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: While Dolly has remained social throughout her stay, she has shown highly concerning behavior over the toy during the SAFER assessment, quickly escalating to a bite of the assess-a-hand (growling) when an attempt was made to remove the toy, unable to readily settle, remaining stiff when handlers disengaged in interaction. We are concerned at this quick arousal and escalation so we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can further investigate this behavior in a stable home environment and provide any necessary behavior modification. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Dolly has escalated to a bite over the toy on the SAFER assessment, which may manifest as guarding behavior in a future home. If it does, we recommend only force-free, reward-based behavior modification to address the challenges.
