Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jenny came to us as an owner surrender because of behavioral issues displayed in the home. According to the owner Jenny lived with another dog which was her mother and was reactive toward her in the home. This usually occurred when Jenny’s mother would attempt to interact with the owner. She did come to us with a previous bite history of reportedly biting the mother on the leg and ear when the mother went to interact with the owner when coming home. Jenny was also said to growl when chewing on a treat and the mother would walk by her. The owner did state that Jenny is affectionate and gentle around children, but is usually afraid when meeting people for the first time. Upon intake it was reported that Jenny had very fearful and tense body language with a tucked tail. Jenny walked very well on the way to the behavior room. When in the behavior room Jenny is clearly fearful with a tucked tail, trembling body language, and stress panting. She keeps close to the assessor initially with her trembling body language. Jenny allows the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items though having very stiff and fearful body language throughout the assessment. When on an on-leash dog interaction Jenny approached the helper dog with relaxed body language. Due to her very fearful nature during assessment and the altercation she had in her previous home we recommend Jenny go to an experienced adopter with no children or other dogs. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is a bit tense and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 3. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body very stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 2.
