KNOWN HISTORY: None
Date of intake 5/10/2017
Unaltered female, stray
Summary: Due to Funnel Cake’s current medical condition, she is not an appropriate candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. The behavior department believes Funnel Cake would benefit best from placement with a New Hope Rescue who can meet her needs medically and then assess behavior once she is in a stable environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Funnel Cake to new and unfamiliar situations. Funnel Cake appears to be calm, she has allowed all handling in shelter without any issue.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Date of initial 5/10/2017
During her initial medical exam, Funnel Cake allowed all handling.
We have no history on Funnel Cake so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center she has a medium activity level, and would benefit from daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only
