Irvin A1090630 is an approximately 1 year APBT. He is being surrendered to the shelter because he was found running loose in Manhattan. Finder placed in vehicle and brought to ACCNYC.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE
Irvin allowed all handling, collaring and photos.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog may smell and/or lick, then turns away.
Summary: Irvin showed no concerning behaviors during his assessment.
When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Irvin displays intently sexually motivated behavior, he does briefly reciprocate interest when solicited with play. However, Irvin’s ultimate intent remains on attempting to mount. Irvin arrived into our care as a stray so there is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs and it is unknown how his behavior around dogs will translate into a home setting. The behavior team feels that he should require in-depth consultation on the behaviors observed in our care center and slow introduction with any resident dogs in a future home.
Irvin was a observed to a bit tense/nervous during his initial examination though allowed all handling to be conducted without issues.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an Average amount of dog experience)
