Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
This animal came from: Found Stray
Date of Intake; 12-May-2018
Spay/Neuter Status; Not Applicable
Basic Information: Doug was brought into the shelter as a stray so his history is unknown at this time. He appears to be a 7-8 year old, large mixed breed male who was not neutered prior to coming into the shelter.
Behavior Notes: Doug was very energetic during intake. He was jumping on counselors and pulling very hard trying to explore the office. He sat well when being pet and was seeking attention. Doug became over stimulated and would become mouthy when not receiving attention, he also takes treats in a snapping motion, watch fingers.
Details on my behavior are…
Date of assessment:15-May-2018
Look:1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted.
Sensitivity:2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, eyes are averted, tail is between legs, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick.
Tag:1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Paw squeeze 1:3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff.
Flank squeeze 1:3. Dog closes mouth, begins to purse lips and becomes stiff.
Flank squeeze 2:3. Dog closes mouth, begins to purse lips and becomes stiff.
Toy:1. No interest.
Summary:Doug came into the assessment room wiggly and panting, he was social but became uncomfortable with some up close handling.
Summary (1):Doug was brought in as a stray so his behavior around other dogs is unknown.
5/13: When off leash at the Care Center, Doug begins to whine and heightens his posture upon greeting a female helper dog. He immediately becomes sexually motivated when introduced off leash, chattering, licking her genitals but he never attempts to mount. Doug does not listen to her appropriate corrections (head whip, teeth bare).
5/15: Doug’s sexually motivated behavior is much more manageable today when introduced to an energetic female player. He displays chatters and a tall posture when she is near, but investigates the pens when she is running around the yard.
Date of intake:12-May-2018
Summary:Energetic, inquisitive, sought attention, mouthy
Date of initial:12-May-2018
ENERGY LEVEL:Doug displays a very high activity level in the care center.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:ADULT ONLY HOME
Recommendations:No children (under 13)
Recommendations comments:No children: – Due to how uncomfortable Doug is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time.
Potential challenges:Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition, Fearful
Potential challenges comments:Mouthiness: At intake, Doug was noted to be enthusiastic and attention-seeking, but also to become mouthy and to take treats with a hard mouth.
Fearful: The behavior department recommends allowing Doug to approach his potential new adopters at his own pace. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Doug to new and unfamiliar situations.
