Summary: Storm was overexcited during handling, jumping up, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression.
10/15: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Storm is muzzled due to greeting displayed at the front gate (hard barks, growls). Once basket muzzled and allowed into the pen, she is initially fixated on the presence of the muzzle. She approaches and stands on the male helper dog’s back with a tense body and begins to growl. When the male helper dog walks away, she runs after him while growling. The behavior department advises against placing Storm into a home with other dogs at this time.
During her initial medical examination, Storm appeared tense though tolerated all handling
_X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control (It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended.)
_X_Single-pet home (see playgroup)
_X_Recommend no dog parks (see playgroup)
