09/22/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Judge A1125952 is at risk with an experience determination. He is social off-leash but has become increasingly difficult to return to his kennel, no longer receptive to coaxing, slow approach, or treats. Due to his stress levels in the kennel environment, we recommend that he move into a home quickly.

09/20/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None Date of intake 9/18/2017 Unaltered male, stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 9/20/2017 Look: 1. Dog leans forward to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft Squeeze 1 / 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Summary: Judge displayed no behavior concerns during his handling assessment, but was reluctant to return to kennel. PLAYGROUP: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Judge approaches and greets politely, follows, sniffs. INTAKE BEHAVIOR Date of intake 9/19/2017 During intake, Judge was social and friendly. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial 9/18/2017 During his initial medical exam, Judge was tense and nervous. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Judge so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Judge displays as a young, social, enthusiastic dog who will benefit from daily mental and physical activitiy to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend daily walks, runs, exercise, and play as well as long lasting chews such as kongs or nylabones. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined below) _X_Leash Manners – At times Judge may be difficult to return to kennel, but body remains soft and he responds well to gentle coaxing and not rushing or forcing him. While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Judge may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating. Judge would do best with a slow approach to new environments so he can acclimate at his own pace. He should never be forced to submit when he is giving clear signals of discomfort.
