Behavior toward children: Social Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Hazel displays a medium activity level in the household Other notes: Upon intake Hazel was hard barking and didn’t allow any handling, due to her behavior. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 4/27/17 Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Hazel was difficult to remove from her kennel, she would hard bark, growl, bare her teeth and lung when she see the leash. She would remain in the back of the cage when trying to leash her. Once Hazel is out the kennel she walks with tense body language and her tail tucked. When entering in to the assessment room she would put breaks on not allowing herself to go inside the assessment room and growl at the assessor when trying to coaxing her inside. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Hazel keeps to herself in a group of calm male and female dogs. According to Hazel’s previous guardian, she has been around other dogs and will sniff & walk away. The Behavior Department recommends that Hazel be placed with resident dogs that match her calm sociability. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/25/17: During her medical examination, Hazel was friendly but timid and allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Her previous owner describes Hazel as an energetic/calm/moderately enthusiastic dog.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner – Hazel has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful- Hazel has been observed to display fearful behavior during her stay at our care centers, at times avoiding interaction and shying away from direct touch. She displays proper warning signals as well as increasing distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of her environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised. _X_Kennel presence- While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Hazel may show behavior similar to what she is currently demonstrating in her kennel. We recommend potential adopters be comfortable managing this behavior and keeping themselves safe in any similar future situations.
