03/22/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/22/16 17:03 Jay is a 2 year old neutered gray and white American Pit-Bull Terrier. He was purchased from a breeder and has been in owners care since he was 2 months. Jay is being surrendered into our care center due to his behavior towards the family. There are no known health injuries or problems. He is described as being friendly, and plays gently with adults. He has lived with children ages 8/18/21 and is relaxed, playful and also plays gently. He lived with an 8 year old Maltese and was described as very playful from owner. No experience with cats or other dogs. There is no known history of him biting another person or animal. Jay has been aggressive towards his family; when a member of the family would get ready to leave the home and walk out the door he would bark and growl, attempted to lunge on two occasions. Since the behavior has occurred he has been placed in a crate while they left the home. He has been hand fed before and isn’t bothered when his bowl is being touched, nor when objects or treats are being taken away. He is fine when getting bathed and has only had his nails trimmed once. When unfamiliar people approach you or the home he isn’t bothered. Described as being friendly with low activity; Jay also enjoyed playing with his toys whether chew bones or squeakies. He was mostly kept indoors and would eat dry food 2 times a day. His favorite treats are Milkbones and slept in his crate. He is very crate trained; Jay will sit in front of the door when he is ready to go out. Has never had any accident within the home. When left alone in the home he was in the crate. He knows such commands as “sit” “down” “stay” and “five”. For exercise he would go on walks on leash, which he can pull hard on. Off leash he will wander but will return when called. Usually potty on the grass. During intake Jay allowed all handling from counselor to be scanned (negative), collared and photographed.

03/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jay is rapidly deteriorating in the care center. He is becoming unpredictable and displaying serious reactivity in the kennel (hard barking, lunging, and biting at the cage bars when approached) and is no longer able to be leashed safely for walks. Due to this deterioration, the Behavior Department feels that placement be sought as soon as possible for his welfare and only with one of our rescue groups to insure that he is provided appropriate rehabilitation needed to decrease his reactivity and the over-arousal he is displaying in the care center. SAFER 3/29: Jay previously lived with 2 adults, a small dog and children ages 8, 18, and 21 years old. It was reported by the owner that Jay has been reactive towards his family members. On two occasions the owner reported that when a family member would attempt to leave the home Jay began to growl, bark and attempted to lunge at them. At intake it was reported Jay was calm and allowed all handling. During SAFER Jay came into the assessment room calm and timid, he was not interested in interacting with the assessor. Jay showed some discomfort during the assessment, he would constantly increase distance away from the assessor with tense body language and did not allow the assessor to conduct the look item. When attempting to pet him on his head he would become skittish and head flipped toward the assessor’s hand. When attempting to conduct the paw squeeze Jay displayed stiff body language. As a result, the flank item was conducted instead and Jay did not respond at all to this item. Jay was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Jay was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Look: 3. Dog constantly increases distance away from the assessor with tense body language and does not allow assessor to conduct item. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you. Dog-dog: Today Jay was used as a greeter. Jay greets a little anxious and whiny at the gate but relaxes once introduced. He engages in brief chase play and will on a few occasions chin-over oth
03/23/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Jay approaches and greets with a neutral body. He engages in gentle play with bounces but does become sexually motivated. He does not attempt to mount but uses chin overs throughout the interaction. 3/24 update: Today Jay was used as a greeter. Jay greets a little anxious and whiny at the gate but relaxes once introduced. He engages in brief chase play and will on a few occasions chin-over other dogs but does not follow though or mount. 3/30 update: Jay is not thriving in the kennel environment and has begun demonstrating barrier reactivity. When approached he may lunge, growl, and snap through the bars. He is responsive to treats and calms down while he is being worked with, but when the training session ceases the reactive behavior returns. Due to his kennel presence as well as some overall handling/fear-based concerns, Jay cannot move into our adoptions room. We recommend that he be placed into a stable home environment quickly in order to prevent rehearsal of this barrier reactivity and to address its cause, as well as to build confidence with new people. Jay can be seen in the kennel lunging, growling, and trying to bite. He calms briefly when given some treats but resorts to the same reactive behavior once the treats are done. Due to this behavior Jay is not a candidate for the adoptions room. Update 3/31: Jay greets with a high energy, barking and jumping at the gate. Once in the pen, Jay maintains his high energy, bouncy, body slamming and giving low growls. He was separated for a few minutes and once relaxed he was reintroduced. He began to solicit soft bouncy play and when the other dog reciprocates he became over-stimulated and escalated to snapping and was immediately separated.
