Date of assessment: 1-Mar-2018
Summary: Jasper is difficult to remove from the kennel, growling and snapping at the leash. He appears to be uncomfortable and allowed minimal handling from his caretakers. Out of concern for his stress levels and his response to restraint, we feel Jasper is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see his owner surrender profile for a full summary of his behavior in his previous home.
PLAY GROUP :
Jasper was surrender as a stray so his past behavior with other dogs is unknown.
2/28-3/01: When off leash at the Care Centers, Jasper greets a group of small male and female dogs with a soft posture. He is sexually motivated, and attempts to mount the other dogs.
Date of intake: 27-Feb-2018
Summary: Growls when being approached.
Date of initial: 27-Feb-2018
Summary: Tense, trembling, growling and baring teeth.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: NEW HOPE ONLY
Recommendations: No children (under 13), Place with a New Hope partner
New hope partner: Jasper has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home.
Potential challenges: Fearful/potential for defensive aggression
Potential challenges comments:
Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Reactivity towards other humans was noted at intake (growling and baring teeth). Because this appears to present a challenge outside of the care centers, guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly advised to assess this behavior and modify/manage as needed.
