06/29/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
6/29 update: Lola has displayed a concerning arousal level when on-leash around other dogs. When she sees other dogs she begins to bark, growl and lunge toward them. Any attempt at refocusing her by the handler has led to Lola attempting to redirect–spinning and snapping at ankles and arms. It is in Lola’s best interest to leave the shelter as quickly as possible so as to not further rehearse these behaviors. The behavior department feels that she may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. 6/28 SAFER: Lola pulls hard on the leash and gets aroused when she sees other dog on walk and may redirects on the handler. During the assessment she was calm and relaxed with handling and easily engages in play, body is loose and wiggly, mouth open. Lola was not interested in toys. Lola was surrender to us.

06/28/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
6/28: It has been observed that while walking on-leash, Lola becomes highly aroused and will pull toward and hard bark at other dogs. On multiple occasions, she has turned to redirect this arousal onto human handlers. When off leash with other dogs, a basket muzzle is applied to Lola due to the concerning behaviors noticed previously. Lola is cautious upon entering the pen, and attempts to avoid the male greeter dog. The muzzle is removed from Lola. She roams the yard and does not approach the male greeter. When sniffed, she moves away. Lola’s finder reports conflict with other dog in the home when kept for a week: “Finder does have another dog living in the home but the finder had kept them separated due to the fact that Lola would growl and seem aggressive if the other dog was near”. At this time, we advise against placing Lola with other dogs due to safety concern, and Lola’s comfort levels.
