05/12/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/12/17 16:01 Jean is a 3 year old pitbull who came to us with her brother whose owner could not keep them due to personal issues. Owner has had them their wholelife and got them when they were two weeks old. They visited a vet a year ago and had a clean bill of health. Jean is very outgoing with strangers when her brother is around but once the noverlty has worn off she walks away and requires a couple of minutes to approach the stranger and solicit attention again. There is a 1 month old in the house that she is gentle with and gives kisses. She has only been around slightly older children a few times, sometimes she is gentle and playful and other times she has barked and growled at the child. Jean does not play with adults much, just her brother. She lives in a home with her brother who she is very bonded to but she will bark, growl or lunge towards other dogs and is kept a distance from them. She does not play with other dogs. She will chase any cat she sees. She has never bitten another person or animal before. Denim is not house trained and uses the bathroom indoors. She does not destroy house hold items. She is not bothered by having his food, treats or toys touched or taken while he has them and does not mind sharing with her brother Denim. She is ok with being restrained. She will struggle and may run when it is bath time but will allow once in the bathtub. She allows herself to be brushed. She barks when someone approaches the door. Jean has a high level of energy at home and likes to follow owner around the house and be in the presence of other people. She only plays with kongs and needs a kong to direct her chewing attention towards. She sleeps wherever she’d like and is fed dog chow dry food with white rice twice a day but can be picky and does not always like the same food, especially wet food. She does not like when people fight in front of her and she gets easily excited and may nip or bite if someone is fighting or play fighting with owner. She is not very house trained and has accidents almost daily but uses the weewee pad occasionally. She is well behaved when left alone other than going potty indoors. she has been crate trained and is ok with it and stays in there no longer than 7-8 hours during the day.

PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Jean is nervous and mostly keeps to herself in a group of small male and female dogs. Jean’s previous guardian reported that she may growl, lunge and bark at novel dogs on leash but did live harmoniously with another male dog. The Behavior Department recommends that Jean be placed with dogs that match her calm sociability. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/13/17: During her medical examination, Jean was very nervous, tail tucked and briefly bared her teeth. ENERGY LEVEL: Jean displays a low activity level in the care center.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner- Jean 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. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. Potential challenges: _X_House soiling – Jean is noted to have occasional accidents in the house, and will likely need guidance with house training. We recommend ONLY force-free, reward-based, positive reinforcement training methods. Accidents should never be punished as it can damage the human-dog relationship and is likely to make the problem worse. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression- Jean has displayed fearful behavior in shelter, she displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance and avoid contact. Because she is so uncomfortable, Jean does not tolerate any form of human-touch and has attempted to bite upon direct contact.
