01/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Hudson was in his previous home for 6 months, after being found as a stray. He lived with four adults and is reported to have growled at children. He also initially growls at strangers, though he eventually allows touch and petting. He does have a bite history, recently nipping a family member’s foot (possibly startled by a quick movement). He is noted to bark at other dogs on walks, and when permitted to greet he sniffs and then walks away. He is reported to be shy, not very active, and housetrained. When surrounded by a group of people in his previous home, Hudson would pace and avoid interaction. He requires a slow approach, and may react with aggression to rapid movement. His previous owners recommend a calm, quiet home. Since arriving at the care center Hudson’s behavior has been similar to what his previous owners describe with strangers: he was growling during his veterinary exam and allowed only a limited exam; he has also been lip curling, baring teeth, snarling, and snapping when visited in his kennel. These clear warning signs and Hudson’s desire to increase distance from his new caretakers, in addition to the behavioral concerns noted by his previous owner and his level of distress in the kennel environment make Hudson a poor candidate for a SAFER aggression assessment at this time. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can address Hudson’s medical concerns and then re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment.
GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
No Group Behavior Summary
01/28/2016 INITIAL PHYSICAL EXAM
Medical rating was 4 NC – SEVERE CONDITIONS NOT CONTAGIOUS, behavior rating was NONE
S: Dog presents as an owner surrender (short term ownership) and growling O: Growling and only a limited exam permitted by this dog (muzzling for the needed period was not prudent). Thin, neutered male dog, appearing older than the 10 y.o stated (closer to 12-14 y.o, although teeth – when slightly bared to accept a treat – appeared to not have such age). NSF on auscultation of cardica valve areas or lung fields. Dog is able to use 4 legs and walked normally. Two nails’ outer ayers shed during PE. Healed bilateral aural hematomas and dry skin bilateral inner pinnae with some wax evident. A:Although no abnormalities were ausculted in the cardiac valve areas or lung fields, that might have been due to Hudson’s growling. Limited exam precludes further comment, but the dog’s ear appearance suggests prior chronic otitis externa and his body condition suggests underlying geriatric disease. P: recommend complete geriatric diagnostic workup after placement. Closer examination of ears and oral cavity is essential.
