Socialization: Owner stated that when around strangers Jessie is aggressive and will bark and snap and may bite.

Jessie has not spent time with other dogs or cats. Behavior: Jessie has bit a person before but has never bitten another animal. Owner states that Jessie is aggressive toward people and may snap and bite. During fireworks and loud noises Jessie gets nervous and will bark. If someone touches Jessie’s food or treats she will snap and bite. If someone takes her toys away she isn’t bothered. When being pushed off the couch retrained or disturbed while sleeping Jessie will growl and may snap. Jessie is afraid of being bathed. Jessie has never had her nails trimmed so it is unknown how she will react. When someone unfamiliar approaches her house or family member she will growl and snap and may bite. For a new family to know: Owner describes Jessie as anxious with a medium activity level. Jessie likes to run. When at home she will stay in the same room as her owner. She like squeaky toys and playing tug with the rope. She has been kept mostly indoors and eats both wet and dry food. Jessie is very much house trained and never has accidents.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
CANINE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION for Jessie A11110835 KNOWN HISTORY: 05/02/17 Intact female, Owner surrender (in home for 6 years) Previously lived with: Adults, children Behavior toward strangers: Growl, snaps Behavior toward children: Rough Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Will snap/bite if someone touches her food or treats Bite history: Yes; Jessie bit owner when placing food down and left two punctures on hand. On a separate occasions, child walked up to Jessie and Jessie growled and jumped up to her face, scratching her, leaving a laceration under eye. Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Anxious with a medium activity level Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 05/15/17 Summary: While she has allowed handling from select caretakers, Jessie remains fearful, avoiding many forms of interaction and will increase distance. Out of concern for her stress level, Jessie is not an appropriate candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 05/03/17 During her initial medical examination, Jessie was tense and growled. ENERGY LEVEL: Jessie has displayed a low energy level in the care center, we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment though recommend daily mental and physical stimulation as an outlet to direct her energy.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to her bite history in additional to Jessie’s overall fear and avoidance behavior, she may benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Jessie’s previous owner notes that she may growl when his food bowl is approached. We recommend that Jessie be left along while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in his future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Jessie’s mouth, and any time something is removed he should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. He should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games. _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Jessie has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times. It is important to always go slow and give Jessie the option to walk away from any social interaction. Jessie should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Jessie’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Jessie would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Jessie has been observed to avoid interaction when frightened/stressed though if unable to move away she may display higher level warning signals. It is recommended that Jessie be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating her to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Jessie to new and unfamiliar situations.
