KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 6/20/17 Unaltered Female, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults, children (Ages 10,12,13 &16) a small breed dog and a cat Behavior toward strangers: Social Behavior toward children: Gentle and Tolerant Behavior toward dogs: Social and Respectful Behavior toward cats: Relaxed and Respectful Resource guarding: None Reported Bite history: None Reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Social, affectionate and excitable with a high activity level Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: Lily is difficult to remove from the kennel, lunging and barking at handlers who approach her. She has also allowed minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Lily 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. PLAYGROUP: 6/23: When introduced off leash to a male dog, Lily is anxious and seeks exit, avoiding interaction. The previous owner of Lily describes her behavior around other dogs as “social and respectful”. The behavior department recommends allowing Lily a period of decompression before immediate introductions to unfamiliar dogs. Future introductions should be supervised and conducted at a slow pace. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: 06/20/17 Upon intake Lily was tense MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/20/17 During her initial medical exam Lily was tense ENERGY LEVEL: Lily’s owner described her as having a high energy level. IN-SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: Lily has been removed from her kennel by select handlers, to who she solicits attention and accepts petting from. Lily becomes tense when approached by a novice person.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to all noted concerns displayed in shelter, we recommend Lily be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Lily to acclimate comfortably to her new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Lily to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Lily presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Lily 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 Lily the option to walk away from any social interaction. Lily should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Lily’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Lily may 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: Lily has snapped during her stay in our care centers when uncomfortable; guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is recommended to assess behavior after decompression in a new home environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing or exposing Lily to new and unfamiliar situations
