Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Kew is an eight year old neutered dog with no known medical issues being surrendered to the care center because his owners are having a baby and do not feel safe with a dog in the home. According to his owner, Kew is shy around strangers initially. He has been around children of all ages and is described as playful, respectful and tolerant. His owner reports that he engages in gentle play with both children and adults. It has also been noted that Kew has been around dogs of all breeds and would tolerate and engage in exuberant play with them; though on some occasions would demonstrate aggressive behavior towards dogs who would display any form of aggression. Kew has never bitten a person or an animal. His owner reports no known behavior issues, aside from Kew becoming nervous during storms. Kew is described as friendly, independent, and mellow with a medium activity level. Kew tolerated all handling during intake and no signs of aggression were displayed. During SAFER Kew came into the assessment room nervous and timid, he was not interested in interacting with the assessor. Kew kept his distance away from the handler, he was tense and jumpy and when attempting to get close to him he would give a direct hard stare. Handling items were skipped due to safety concerns. He displayed no interest in the resource item during this portion of the assessment. In light of this behavior, we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide behavior modification is the best option at this time. The behavior department recommends Kew recieve a proper period of decompression before introduction/exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force free, reward based training is advised. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: Kew displays a slightly tense body at first before becoming loose when interacting with other dogs. He did not react when another male became reactive towards him.
