10/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered Male, Stray Other notes: In the Care Center Jamaica was tense and uncomfortable, he was growling with his tail tucked, and would not allow the counselor to collar/take his photo. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/18/16 Toy Item: No Interest Summary: In the kennel Jamaica was hard barking and avoiding the leash; his body was tense and it took quite a few attempts, before we were able to get him on the leash, and bring him out of the kennel. Jamaica appears reactive due to fear; he did not tolerate any handling. Once out of the kennel he remained tense and uncomfortable, for this reason the behavior department believes Jamaica is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time. PLAYGROUP: Jamaica was brought in as a stray so his past behavior around other dogs is unknown. 10/17: When off leash at the Care Center, Jamaica appears extremely nervous and anxious displaying a tense posture and tucked tail. He does greet the helper dog and slowly loosens up and bounces around the yard a little with her. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/16/16 During his initial medical examination, Jamaica appeared tense, tolerating very minimal handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13)(See potential challenges) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Jamaica has remained fearful/avoidant during his stay at our care centers, for this reason we believe he would benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Jamaica has displayed fearful/defensive behavior during his stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling; any form of direct touch may result in a fearful bite. It is recommended that Dunkaroo be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating him to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Dunkaroo to new and unfamiliar situations.)
