04/02/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Kellz is fearful of the shelter environment he walks with a low and fearful body language. He was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. Kellz had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. He was not interested in toys. Kellz approaches helper dog, body is tense, ears erect. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter no young children. Kellz is somewhat fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler. Kellz has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Kellz is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted.
