09/27/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Stray, Unaltered SAFER ASSESSMENT: 9/27/16 Summary: Duke is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time due to fear based aggression observed in shelter. PLAYGROUP: 9/27/16 The Enrichment Team was able to remove Duke from his kennel. He was not allowed off leash with the female greeter dog because the team was unable to place a collar on him. He was very nervous of the collar, displaying a tense face and lip licking. He is interested in the female dog and slowly approaches to greet her rear end, moving away when she turns to face him. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 9/24/16 During his initial medical exam Duke was not sociable, did not tolerate petting, and attempted to bite. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Placement __No young children (under 5) _X_No children (under 13) (See potential challenges) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Duke has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake and is now shut down in shelter. Due to this behavior, Duke is not a candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Duke has solely displayed fearful behavior in shelter, he displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance/avoid. Because he is so uncomfortable, Duke does not tolerate any form of human-touch and has attempted to bite upon direct contact.)
