04/27/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 04/16/17 Spayed, owner surrender (in home for 3 years) Previously lived with: Adults, child (age 1) Behavior toward strangers: Shy, has growled and snapped at select people Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Friendly, somewhat rough Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Lilo will growl over toys and treats in crate Bite history: Yes; upon infant being picking up, Lilo bit infant on foot, leaving one laceration. Lilo has also bitten while in the dog park after another dog bit her. Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Shy and independent with a high activity level Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 04/27/17 Summary: Lilo has allowed some handling in the care center but she is tense and avoids interaction with his new caretakers, in line with his owner’s report of Lilo’s behavior around strangers. She watches and tracks the humans around her carefully at all times. Due to the behaviors observed, and out of concern for her stress level, we do not feel it is appropriate to perform a handling assessment at this time. Please review the full owner surrender profile for information on Lilo’s behavior in his previous home as a guideline. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Due to Lilo’s DOH status a muzzle is placed on her before she is allowed to interact. Lilo is nervous, greeting a novel male dog with a tucked tail. She sniffs him briefly, and allows him to sniff her, before keeping to herself as she explores. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 04/16/17 During her initial medical examination, Lilo appeared fearful and tense, tolerating minimal handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Lilo is described to have a high energy level in a home environment though due to her fear and avoidance, Lilo has displayed a low energy level in the care centers.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the fear/avoidance behavior displayed in the care center, we cannot fully evaluate Lilo and feel that she will be best set up to succeed through placement with a New Hope partner. We recommend only positive reinforcement-based, force-free training for Lilo as aversive methods are likely to heighten her fear and increase aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Lilo is reported to growl over high value items while in her crate; We recommend that Lilo be left alone while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in her future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Lilo’s mouth, and any time something is removed she should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. She should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Lilo has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times, especially when a person is reaching over her. It is important to always go slow and give Lilo the option to walk away from any social interaction. Lilo should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Lilo’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Lilo would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Lilo is extremely nervous around strangers and can be difficult to handle at times. She has a bite history and shows clear signs of discomfort. It is important to respect those signs and to help Lilo gain comfort and confidence in order to avoid escalation.
