Details on my behavior are…
Means of surrender (length of time in previous home): Stray, no known history.
Date of assessment: 17-Jan-2018
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: 1. Dog follows at the end of the leash, body soft.
Paw squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Paw squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Eyes are averted and ears are relaxed or back.
Toy: 3. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Body is stiff.
Summary: Jada was playful and energetic during the assessment. She engaged in play with the assessor; she was mouthy throughout the assessment, but remained soft.
Summary (1): When introduced to both large and small dogs, Jada was fearful and would avoid and hide from them. She was surrender as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department believes that Jada would be most comfortable as the only dog, at this time. Any other resident dogs should be respectful of her space. All introductions should be done slowly and under supervision.
1/16: When off leash at the Care Centers, Jada greets the male helper dog at the gate with a loose, wiggly body. After the pen door opens, she becomes uncomfortable with his energy and immediately flees. She avoids him the rest of the session, displaying flat ears and a tuck tail when he is near.
1/17: Jada avoided and flee when an altercation between two dogs occurred.
1/18: Jada was introduced to a group of small male and female dogs. She continued to display a fearful posture, and flees when they approached her. She spent most of her session hiding behind the handlers.
Date of intake: 15-Jan-2018
Summary: Intake behavior unknown.
Date of initial: 16-Jan-2018
Summary: Active, attention seeking, allows all handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Jada so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. Jada is a young, enthusiastic, social dog, we recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Potential challenges: Resource guarding, Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition
Potential challenges comments:
Resource guarding: Jada was observed to guard her toy becoming (stiff, and using her body to block the assistant). We recommend that Jada be left along while engaged with toy items. We cannot be certain if this behavior will carry over to food guarding in the home (available at ASPCApro.org) can be utilized if this behavior is problematic in her future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Jada’s mouth, and any time something is removed she should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. She should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games.
Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition: While she applies only light pressure, Jada was mouthy throughout the assessment and is quick to put her teeth on skin. This is likely an attention-seeking behavior, but it should be replaced with an alternative behavior as it can frighten people. We recommend never playing with bare hands â€“ always with a toy – and ending play or attention whenever Jada puts teeth on skin. She should be rewarded with attention and treats when she stops and/or when she is seeking attention in alternate ways.
