09/01/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
09/01/17 13:10 Basic Information Lady C is an eight year old, gray colored, small female dog. Her owner surrendered her due to health reasons. Owner stated that she got Lady C as a gift from her father when she was just a puppy. Lady C has no visible signs of injuries or illness. Socialization Lady is friendly and outgoing around strangers (she may bark or growl but becomes friendly after a while of meeting you). She lived at home and spent time with owner’s four month old and two year old niece and nephew and was relaxed and respectful around them (owner stated that she guards and cares for the baby). She is is gentle when playing with adults and children. Lady C lived with and spent time at home with a three year old small dog and was playful and respectful around her. And, she has never bitten a human or another animal. Behavior Lady C is very well behaved; she is bothered by loud noises (alarms) and hides under the bed or table. She is friendly if you touch her food or bowl while eating or take her toy away and is not bothered if pushed off furniture or disturbs while sleeping. She isn’t bothered if bathed or brushed or nails trimmed. And, if unfamiliar faces approach owner or her family or her home, she barks briefly for a few seconds before approaching and sniffing them. For a new Family to Know Lady C is a friendly, affectionate, playful, confident dog with high low level. She cares so much about owner and her family and is very protective of them. She loves to walk outdoors or just chill at home and sleep. She follows you around at home and would be in the same room all the time. He never played with toys; was kept mostly indoors and slept on a dog bed in a crate. She was fed dry and wet dog food and her favorite treat is chicken. She is house trained and uses wee pads indoors. She goes potty on grass when outdoors and is well behaved when left alone at home. She does well in a crate as long as the door is open and she can go in and out at will. She understands the commands stay and go; and goes on slow walks on leash, pulls lightly on the leash and stays close to your side when off leash. Behavior during Intake Lady C had a very stiff body, she barked and growled and lunged when counselor approached but allowed limited handling.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 9/1/17 Spayed, Owner Surrender (In previous home for eight years) Previously lived with: Adults, children (ages two and four months), and another dog Behavior toward strangers: Barks and growls, then becomes friendly Behavior toward children: Relaxed and respectful Behavior toward dogs: Playful and respectful with the dog she lived with Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Goes outside and on wee wee pads Energy level/descriptors: Lady C is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, and confident dog with a high low level of activity. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 9/5/17 Summary: Lady C is difficult to remove from the kennel, growling and snapping when approached. She has allowed minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Lady C is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see her owner surrender profile for a full summary of her behavior in her previous home. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Lady C barked, growled, and lunged at the counselor. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 9/2/17 During her initial medical exam, Lady C was tense and screamed when touched. ENERGY LEVEL: Lady C is described as having a low level of activity.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Lady C is currently with touch and novel stimuli, as well as her history of barking and growling at strangers, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Lady C 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: Lady C is reported to bark and growl at strangers. In the care center, she barks and growls at people who approach her kennel. It is important to always go slow and give Lady C the option to walk away from any social interaction. Lady C should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Lady C’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Lady C would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.
