Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jordan lived previously with three adults and a 17-year-old. He is described as friendly and outgoing with strangers and relaxed and playful with children. However, a number of concerning behaviors were reported in his previous home: he lunged and growled at the cat he lived with; his owners note that he is destructive indoors (chewing walls, shoes, remote controls), is not housetrained, and will growl and snap if his food bowl is touched. He has had two bite incidents in the shelter (neither breaking skin), once when being removed from his kennel and once during a medical exam. Jordan has also been observed to become aroused easily on leash and may bite at the leash. During his SAFER aggression assessment, Jordan was interested in interacting with the assessor in the behavior room. Jordan became stiff and uncomfortable during the sensitivity, squeeze and flank items. During the tag interaction Jordan did become a bit over aroused jumping strongly to mouth the leash, but he settled quickly at the end of the item. He took the toy item away with soft body language. Due to the range of concerns noted in his previous home and in the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. We caution strongly against a home with children or with cats. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog tries to mouth the leash strongly on repeated attempts with body a bit tense, but calms quickly. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, begins to purse lips and becomes stiff Flank squeeze 2: 3. Dog closes mouth, begins to purse lips and becomes stiff Toy 1: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness.
04/07/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
The Behavior Department did not feel comfortable removing Jordan from his kennel. He was hard barking and bit the handler’s hand, but did not break skin, when she tried to retrieve him. 4/10 update: Jordan was much easier to remove from his kennel today. Once in the play yard, he bounced up to the gate and greeted with a high energy play bow. Jordan paced back and forth with a wiggly, bouncy body while occasionally attention-barking towards the helper dog. Unfortunately the helper dog we have today is not comfortable with high energy players, which appears to be what Jordan is. Therefore we felt that due to his energy level we would not introduce them off leash.
