06/26/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 06/21/17 Intact male, owner surrender Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Calm, affectionate, barks Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Playful, rough Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: Yes, Duke has bitten another dog before, pinned dog and grazed skin near eye, breaking skin. (Further details of the incident are unknown) Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Affectionate and calm with a medium activity level Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 06/26/17 Summary: Due to the avoidance and distance increasing behaviors observed in-shelter, Duke is not an appropriate candidate for an assessment at this time. Please use his known history as guideline for more information on Duke in a home environment. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 06/21/17 Duke was tense and growled when approach; he did not tolerate handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 06/22/17 During his initial medical examination, Duke was whale eyed and tense; Duke was muzzled for his examination. ENERGY LEVEL: Duke has displayed a low energy level though this is likely due to fearful behavior that has come as a result of his environment. His previous owner reports a medium activity level in the previous home environment.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION According to Duke’s previous guardian, Duke was kept with another dog for a short time and would play with the other dog. Duke played somewhat rough and has bitten the other dog before. 6/29: When greeting a novel female dog Duke displays nervous body language. His tail is tucked to his belly and his face is tense. He is tolerant of the female dog’s face to face greeting, but mostly keeps to himself as he explores. While exploring, his body language becomes more relaxed and his tail untucks, but when the female approaches him, Duke looks away and tucks him tail, indicating that he does not wish to interact. Due to Duke’s bite history with another dog and his nervousness when socializing here at the Care Center, the Behavior Department believes that Duke would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home at this time. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Duke is not thriving in the shelter environment and has had a hard time with handling in the care center. He has generally given clear and protracted warnings and has not escalated to threatening behavior, but we are concerned that extra pressure may elicit higher level warnings. We feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification guidance in a stable home environment will best set Duke up for success in a future adoptive home. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Duke has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times, especially when a person is reaching over him. It is important to always go slow and give Duke the option to walk away from any social interaction. Duke should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Duke’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Duke may do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Duke has displayed fearful behavior in shelter, he displays minimal social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance and avoid contact when uncomfortable.
