Summary (1): Lady is uncomfortable around novel dogs, displaying a frozen posture. According to Lady’s previous owner, Lady has lived with another male dog who is her litter mate. Around him she is respectful and gentle, however she gets tense whenever other dogs try to approach her. The Behavior Department recommends that Lady Be the only resident dog at this time.
2/14: Lady immediately freezes, hard stares and her hackles are raised when the novel male dog approaches the gate to greet her. She does not become vocal or displays any other behaviors but she does track him with her eyes while continuing to be frozen. Her attention was difficult to grab, and she had to be place in another pen to break her fixation. Due to her behavior, as well as the novel male dog’s inexperience, she was not muzzle for an off leash interaction.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Behavior Asilomar; TM – Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations: Single-pet home, Recommend no dog parks
_X_ Single-pet home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to the concerning behaviors that Lady has shown during playgroup (see GROUPBEHAVIOR SUMMARY), we feel that Lady should not visit dog parks and be the only resident dog. The Behavior Department recommends that she be socialized in a more controlled setting until her behavior towards other dogs can be further addressed. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Lady associate dogs with things she enjoys like toys or treats.
