10/18/16 14:36 King is a four year old yorkie mix brought into the shelter after his previous owners broke up. He was described by his previous owner as shy around strangers. Previous owner wasn’t sure how long this shyness would last for. He lived with a six and nine year old, and was reported to be friendly and playful around them. Previous owner stated that he was an exhuberant player with both adults and children. King has not lived with any other animals as far as previous owner was aware. King was not reported to have a bite history. Previous owner said the King is not house trained. He will both poop and pee inside the house. He will hide during loud noises. Previous owner said his ex girlfriend was in charge of grooming him, so he didn’t know if King allowed baths or nail trimming. He said that he thought King would allow food, toys, and treats to be taken away, but wasn’t sure. He allows to be held. King was reported to have a high activity level. He liked to follow his previous owners around the home. He is used to eating both wet and dry food. He was described as a “house dog” and does not go on walks very frequently. During intake, King tried to hide under the chair with his ears back. After a few minutes he came out and briefly allowed one counselor to lightly pet him. When collaring was attempted, he snapped. He snapped at a woman in the lobby who leaned in to touch him as well.

He is nervous and trembling with a crouched body posture; he snaps towards the handlers hand when he tries to collar him for an assessment. We recommend King Bowser be placed with a New Hope rescue partner who can further assess his behavior in a more stable environment. PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/18/16 During his initial medical examination, King Bowser tolerated minimal handling, snapped at the handlers. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) (See potential challenges) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (King Bowser has snapped multiple times during his stay at our care centers, for this reason we believe King Bowser would benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (King Bowser has displayed fearful/defensive behavior during his stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling; any form of direct touch may result in a fearful bite. It is recommended that King Bowser be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating him to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing King Bowser to new and unfamiliar situations.)
