02/20/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
02/20/16 13:40hrs Hurricane has been cared for by his family for the past 3 years. He lived with adults only but has interacted with an 8 year old child. Hurricane was playful with the child allowing all touching. His owner noticed that he would begin guarding after a short while, where he would stand and bare his teeth at anyone that approaches her. Hurricane is playful with new dogs that he meets. He will attempt to pull towards them. His owner noted that he becomes aggressive around male pit bulls and unneutered male dogs. He will growl at them while pulling towards them. BEHAVIOR Hurricane enjoys being petted and brushed. Hurricane allows his owner to brush his teeth 2x a month using a finger brush and paste. He is bathed every 3x weeks and will sit still and allow his owner to bathe him. He likes to drink the bath water. Hurricane allows his owner to approach him while he is eating and will step away from his bowl if approached. Hurricane displays guarding behavior. Hurricane will guard his toys and bed, areas in the home and people. He will bare his teeth and growl if he is approached while playing with his toys or while he is in bed. He spends most of his time in the son’s room where his bed and toys are. He guards that room from everyone else in the home. Hurricane will growl and lunge if someone attempts to enter the room except for the son. If Hurricane is told to get off of furniture, he will listen to the son but will become stiff and growl at everyone else in the home that instructs him. Hurricane will bark when the doorbell rings. If a new visitor approaches him inside of the home, he will sniff at them and then start barking. If a stranger approaches his owner while being walked, he will stand in front of his owner while barking at the person. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Hurricane likes to play with stuffed and squeaky toys. He knows the commands “sit, down, look at me, come here and leave it.” He is accustomed to being walked 2x a day for an hour each time. He is allowed off leash only at night in enclosed areas. He will stay near his owner while being walked unless another dog is nearby. He will attempt to run after the dog and sniff them and may not listen to his commands. Hurricane appears to be afraid of brooms, mops and plastic bags. He will continuously growl at them and may lunge after them. He eats boiled rice, chicken, potatoes and carrots mixed with Blue Buffalo dry dog food.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Hurricane came into our center as an owner surrender citing growling and barking at family that lives in the home, only social to one family member. Owner reports attempts at obedience classes and behavior modification over the past 8 months. Owner reports Hurricane also will guard toys as well as certain areas within the home. During intake, Hurricane was hard barking and growling at everyone that looked at him or approached him, he did not allow handling. He tried to bite during his initial medical exam. Hurricane growled, bared teeth, and snapped when attempting to remove him from his kennel, retreating to the back. He pulled on leash for his relief walk. Hurricane was able to be collared by moving slowly while he was focused on the exit door. Hurricane would not let assessor approach. If looked at or spoken to Hurricane would growl, when attempting to approach he barked and bared teeth. Due to this behavior all tactile portions of SAFER were skipped. Hurricane initially appeared interested in Toy, but retreated fearfully when approached by assess-a-hand. He approached the helper dog a bit distracted, tail above spine level, body not stiff. Due to Hurricane’s inability to tolerate any handling at this time, he must be placed with a New Hope partner. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog appears interested but retreats when approached by assess-a-hand. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body soft, tail well above spine level, ears forward, investigates and then turns away.
