Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Gavino came to us as an owner surrender due to the owner not having the proper time to care for him. According to the owner Gavino has been around a newborn and one year old child, having relaxed and gentle body language. Sometimes though Gavino becomes a bit over aroused and should be supervised when around children. When meeting strangers it was said that Gavino is usually timid and shy around them and will slowly approach and sniff them. After a few hours the owner said that Gavino will allow petting and solicit attention. Around the owner Gavino was said to be a bit protective of the owner and selective of strangers. With some strangers Gavino will have tense body language and he has also growled at some people when around the owner, but has never bitten anyone. Gavino can be seen in the kennel with very low and crouched body language, and will low growl when approached. He stops this behavior once the kennel door is opened and allows the assessor to take him out. When on leash Gavino pulls very strongly, tail tightly tucked and low body language. He seems to be constantly looking for an exit and seems to have high anxiety. Initially, Gavino has very stiff body language and increases distance away from the assessor. After a few minutes the assessor is able to adjust the collar on Gavino though his body is still very tense. Gavino pulled out very quickly with stiff body language when the assessor attempted to run the look item. He had very stiff body language during the sensitivity test, but quickly body freezes. Due to this behavior the rest of the handling items were not conducted. He showed no interest in the toy on this portion of the assessment. Due to Gavino’s very fearful nature while in the shelter environment we recommend placement with a New Hope partner that can provide positive experiences for Gavino. Look: 3. Dog quickly pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time with stiff body language. Sensitivity: 5. Dog freezes. Toy 1: No interest. When off leash with other dogs, Gavino approaches the gate and greets with a loose, soft posture. Once inside the pen he becomes a little sexually motivated but does not attempt to mount.
