07/01/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 6/17/17 Unaltered Female, Owner Surrender Bite History: Yes, please see memo Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 7/1/17 Summary: Joey was difficult to remove from the kennel, lunging and snapping at the leash. She appears to be uncomfortable or afraid of the slip lead. She has also allowed minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Joey is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see her owner surrender profile for a full summary of her behavior in her previous home. PLAYGROUP: Joey’s previous guardian did not provide any information on Joey’s behavior towards other dogs. Due to Joey’s DOH status a muzzle is placed on her before she is allowed to greet another dog. Joey displays stiff body language when greeting a novel male dog. She is tolerant of his face to face greetings, but her body language never relaxes. Due to Joey’s slight discomfort with novel dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that all introductions be conducted slowly and be under supervision. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 6/17/17: Upon intake Joey was reactive and a control pole was required due to her behavior concerns. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/18/17: During her medical examination, Joey was growling, jumping and trying to bite. No handling was conducted. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _x_Recommend no dog parks: Due to the inability to fully assess Joey’s behaviors around other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that she not be taken to dog parks until her behavior is further addressed. _X_Place with a New Hope partner- Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, as well as Joey’s bite history, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the biting and underlying anxiety. Potential challenges: _X_Bite history/risk of future aggression-Dog bit owner on his left hand. The owner was wearing gloves during the situation and avoided serious injury. He contacted the police department but refused medical attention.
