A Little Bit About Me…

Lola Bunny appeared very anxious in the assessment room, panting, whining, and focusing on the exit. She did not approach the assessor but allowed the assessor to approach her. The was tense, trembling, panting, and had a tucked tail during the assessment, and was focused on the exit. When her paw was touched, she screamed and air snapped.
Dog to dog:
3/26: When introduced to dog on leash, Lola Bunny is tense and displays a hard stare.
Date of intake: 26-Mar-2018
Summary: Lola Bunny was well behaved and calm.
Date of initial 26-Mar-2018
Summary: Lola Bunny was growling and snapped.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Lola Bunny so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: ADULT ONLY HOME
No children (under 13)
Due to the high level of anxiety Lola Bunny displays at the care center, as well as some sensitivity to handling, we recommend an adult only home.
Fearful/potential for defensive aggression
Handling/touch sensitivity: Lola Bunny has screamed and snapped when her paw was handled, showing discomfort with touch in certain areas. It is important to avoid touching Lola Bunny’s paws at this time and to be cautious when touching her in other areas as we do not know where she may have other sensitivities. Positive reinforcement, reward based training should be used to pair touch with good things such as food rewards in order to teach Lola Bunny to be more comfortable with this.
Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Lola Bunny gives clear warnings when she is uncomfortable and does seem to choose to avoid or retreat when given the opportunity, but if prevented from moving away there is a potential to escalate to higher-level warning behaviors and possible fear-based aggression. It is important to move slowly with Lola Bunny, to build positive associations (treats/toys/praise), and to allow Minerva to initiate interactions with new people. She should never be forced to greet or to interact if she is not comfortable and soliciting attention.
Anxiety: Lola Bunny appears anxious in the care center, whining and panting heavily. We have no history on her in a home, so we do not know if this behavior will be present outside of the care center. If it does occur, we recommend giving her puzzle toys, long walks, and things to do to relieve her anxiety. Positive reinforcement, reward based training only should be used.
