06/11/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
6/11 Update: The Behavior Department highly recommends that Fiddlesticks live in a home with no other dogs due to her discomfort around other dogs and because of the dog reactivity she has displayed here in the Care Center. Fiddlesticks came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Fiddlesticks was very friendly and allowed all handling. During SAFER Fiddlesticks came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, she was friendly and playful towards the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Fiddlesticks was easily aroused mouths the leash with tense body language during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Fiddlesticks freezes and growls on the toy item. Due to some concerns Fiddlesticks can become easily aroused when she gets excited and she also growls and freezes with the toy item. The behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 3. Dog gets easily aroused, mouths the leash with tense body language. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Toy: 4. Dog freezes and growls. Dog-dog: Fiddlesticks greets another female with hard barks and high energy. After a few seconds she shakes off and becomes uncomfortable with reproaching the gate; avoiding eye contact and keeping a distance. The gate door was not opened due to her becoming uncomfortable with the other dogs presence. 6/5/16: Fiddlesticks has been showing increasing arousal behavior recently. It has been reported to The Behavior Team that she has been intermittently rope reactive- jumping, flailing, biting on and thrashing with the rope while being removed from the Adoptions room and take out for a walk. Today a volunteer needed assistance from an Enrichment Facilitator to remove the rope from her mouth and proceed with her walk. At this time, we feel that Fiddlesticks behavior has begun to deteriorate her at the Care Center and her rope reactivitiy is becoming increasingly concerning. For both the safety of staff and volunteers as well as her welfare, placement should be sought for Fiddlesticks as soon as possible.
04/07/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Fiddlesticks was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around other dogs is unknown. Here at the Care Center, before entering the play pens Fiddlesticks was displaying frustrated behavior during collaring, and began to hard bark at the handlers. When she greets the other dog at the gate she becomes anxious and roams the yard. Once the other dog is let into the pen, Fiddlesticks allows a brief sniff before exploring her surroundings. She has become increasingly uncomfortable with other dogs during her play group sessions, becoming stiff and displaying look aways. Due to these concerns, the Behavior Department recommends that Fiddlesticks not be adopted into a home with other dogs. 4/13: Fiddlesticks is anxious but does greet the helper dog. She engages in running play but becomes reactive when the energy of the helper dog increases; barking while running and tensing her body. 5/5: Fiddlesticks greets another female with hard barks and high energy. After a few seconds she shakes off and becomes uncomfortable with reproaching the gate; avoiding eye contact and keeping a distance. The gate door was not opened due to her becoming uncomfortable with the other dogs presence.
