The owner is surrendered Lucky due to his 18 month old toddler having allergies to dogs and was recommended by the doctor. The owner is not aware of any injuries or health problems. Around strangers, Lucky will bark nonstop at strangers. He usually lets his sister, Luna, approach strangers first before he will stop barking and go sniff them. Her lived with a 18 month old toddler and loved to lick the child’s face and be near him. He has not played with any children but plays with adults very gently. He loves to play with his sister, Luna, and wrestle with her. He has never lived or spent time with a cat. Lucky has never bitten a person or another animal. Lucky, at times, may be in the house when he is left alone. The owner is unsure why he does that. He is not bothered by loud noises or thunderstorms. He is not bothered by having his food bowl touched or having anything removed from his mouth. He will struggle initially during bath time, but settle down . He will bark at any stranger when approached or he can see them. LUcky is a confident and loving dog that loves to run around and enjoy spending time with his owners and their young child. He will greet his owner at the door and follow him around the apartment. His favorite chew is deer antlers. He eats Purina dry food twice a day and loves milkbones. He loves to go on brisk walks and jogs. He has never been left off leash due to the possibility of running into a stranger.

05/24/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
CANINE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION for: Lucky A1112728 KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 5/21/17 Neutered male, Owner surrender (Lived in previous home for 3 years) Previously lived with: Adults, child (ages 18 months) and 1 dog. Behavior toward strangers: Barks nonstop Behavior toward children: Gentle Behavior toward dogs: Gentle Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Lucky is confident and playful. Other notes: During intake, Lucky locked eyes with counselor and was not handled because he would bark and lunge. He had to be muzzled for this behavior. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 5/24/17 Lucky is not difficult to remove from the kennel, but once out during walks Lucky continues to watch over his shoulder, and will bare teeth if touched while on the leash. He appears to be uncomfortable with direct contact. He has not allowed any handling from the assessor. Out of concern for his stress levels and his response to touch/petting, we feel Lucky is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Summary: Lucky bared teeth when the assessor/assistant touched him. Lucky has shown some escalated warning behaviors in the care center-giving hard stares, and baring teeth. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Lucky mostly keeps to himself in a group of calm female and neutered male dogs. He becomes reactive with an intact male, but is easily interrupted. Lucky’s previous owner reported that he loved to play and wrestle with his sister, but provided no information about his behavior around novel dogs. The Behavior Department recommends that Lucky be placed with female or neutered male dogs that match his calm sociability. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/21/17 Lucky needed to be muzzled because he was trying to hide and showing fear. He tolerated handling very well the muzzle. ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner reports a medium activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. The movement/jumping appeared to be aimed at stopping the assessor’s activity/etc. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training techniques for Lucky.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Lucky’s reactivity towards intact male dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that he only be socialized in a more controlled setting. _X_ Place with a New Hope partner: Due to Lucky’s discomfort with touch and interaction with his caretakers in the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression—Lucky has displayed fearful behavior in shelter and attempts to increase distance and avoid contact. Because he is so uncomfortable, Lucky has tolerated limited human touch in the care center and has bared teeth upon direct contact.
