Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Gucci previously lived with adults and has spent time with a 15 year old. The owner stated his behavior is unknown when around strangers and with the 15 year old he is relaxed and playful. The owner mentioned with other dogs he is relaxed and is usually tolerant around cats. It was reported by the owner when objects or toys are being taken Gucci will growl. The owner describes Gucci as playful with a high activity level. At intake it was reported Gucci didn’t allowed any handling, due to his behavior such as barking and lunging. Assistance was needed from the owner. During SAFER Gucci came into the assessment room with stiff body language and whale eyes, he would tense up and growl when standing close to him. Not all handling items were able to be conducted as Gucci was stiff and growled at the assessor when standing next to him. He displayed no interest in the toy resource item during this portion of the assessment. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Gucci greets displaying loose body language. He is sexually motivated but does not attempt to mount the female. He is tolerant of her play solicitations as he continues to persistently sniff her genital area.
