03/16/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/16/17 21:20 Basic Information: Loki is a 6 years old unneutered male American Pit Bull Terrier Mix. He lived in his previous home since he was a pup. He had to be surrendered to our shelter because of the previous owner’s living situation. He has no known history of health problems. Socialization: Around strangers Loki was very friendly. He lived with a child that was 3 years old and spent time with kids from the ages of 4 and 8. Around children he was very playful but sometimes he would play exuberantly with them. He also played exuberantly with adults. He lived all of his life with his partner Loki who was also 6 years old like him and a couple of other dogs when he was younger. As he grew older, his play style with Redman became excessive and had to be separated at times. He would play somewhat rough with other dogs. He never spent time with cats. Loki has no known bite history. Behavior: Loki would often go potty indoors when not taken out. He would destroy household items indoors. He would bark excessively when left alone. He is terrified of storms and unknown loud noises. He was not really bothered when his previous owner touched his food while he was eating. He would growl when his previous owner attempted taking his toys/treats away but allowed her to take them. He would attempt to wiggle away when restraint. He enjoyed baths. He would bark when an unfamiliar approached the home. For a New Family to Know: Loki was described to us as a friendly and affectionate dog. His activity level is very high. He would stay in his favorite spot: the couch when the previous owner was at home. His favorite toys were balls and ropes. He was kept mostly in doors. He would sleep in the owner’s bed or in a separate cage away from the previous owner other dog. His diet consisted of dry Pedigree. He was mostly house trained and would go on the grass outside. He had accidents a few times a week. He would destroy household items, bark and go potty when left alone in the house. He was crate trained and would do well for about 6 hours.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 3/16/17 Unaltered Male, Owner Surrender (In previous home for six years) Previously lived with: Adults, a child (age three), and other dogs. Behavior toward strangers: Friendly Behavior toward children: Exuberantly playful Behavior toward dogs: Played excessively with the dog he lived with, played rough with other dogs. Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Yes, he would growl when his owner took away his toys or treats. Bite history: None reported Housetrained: No Energy level/descriptors: Loki is described as friendly and affectionate with a very high activity level. Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/19/17 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 5. Dog jumps up on assessor, hard barks, grabs leash and will not relinquish. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Summary: Loki was leash biting before the assessment began and became very over aroused during tag, hard barking and grabbing the leash. He would not relinquish the leash so squeeze was unable to be done. He did let of the leash when the toy was inroduced. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 3/18: When off leash with a female dog Loki engages in bursts of play with intent to mount. He becomes frustrated when he is unable to and will begin to growl; no correction is offered by the helper dog. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/17/17 During his initial medical exam, Loki was social and allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Loki’s previous owner described him as having a very high activity level. In the care center he has been active and enthusiastic. He may have a low threshold for arousal and needs guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when he becomes overstimulated. He will need daily mental and physical stimulation and exercise, and a force-free, positive reinforcement-based training class may help her to learn impulse control and to train desirable behaviors that can be rewarded.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how quickly Loki becomes over aroused, we recommend a home without children. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to Loki’s behavior on his assessment of grabbing the leash and not relinquishing it with any distraction during tag, we feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification guidance in a stable home environment will best to setup Loki for success in a future adoptive home. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Social hyper-arousal (Loki became quickly over aroused on his assessment, jumping up, grabbing the leash, and not relinquishing it during tag. He will need careful management in a calm home and positive reinforcement, force-free training to work on this behavior. Work with a professional trainer or behaviorist is highly advised.) _X_Leash-biting (Loki bites his leash continuously in the care center environment. It is unknown if this behavior will continue outside of the care center. We recommend walking him with a toy in his mouth and using positive reinforcement, force-free training to teach him alternate behaviors.)
