Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Kingston A1113832 KNOWN HISTORY: None 5/31/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/4/17 Look: 5. Dog snaps. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Kinston appeared fearful in the assessment room and snapped when his face was touched for look. The rest of the handling items were omitted. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 6/4: When introduced off leash to dogs in the care center Kingston follows and attempts to mount. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 5/31/17 Upon intake Kingston would not allow admissions counselor to approach MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/31/17 During his initial medical exam Kingston growled and snapped ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Kingston so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a low level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Kingston is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Kingston has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Kingston snapped during his assessment and has snapped at other times while in the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Kingston the option to walk away from any social interaction. Kingston should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Kingston’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Kingston would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
