Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 1/30/17 Unaltered, Female, Owner Surrender (Lived with owner for 10 years) Previously lived with: Children (ages 4, 6, 9, 10, 14 & 17 years old) Behavior toward strangers: Unknown Behavior toward children: Gentle, exuberant, relaxed, playful Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Unknown Bite history: Unknown Housetrained: No Energy level/descriptors: Friendly, affectionate, playful, confident & excitable with a medium activity level Other notes: Owner reports Lucy stayed inside the house her entire life, has not been socialized around anyone outside the home. Reportedly very nervous around people. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/3/2017 Toy: 1. Minimal interest, sniffs, then turns away. Summary: Lucy was not fully comfortable in the SAFER assessment room, but at times would sit near assessor and allow some touch. She raised lip and briefly snarled so up close tactile handling was skipped. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Tolerant: These dogs are typically non-reactive on leash and will be either friendly or indifferent off leash. They can typically tolerate some rude behavior from other dogs and can be described as having a long fuse. They show relaxed, appropriate, easy-going body language around other PLAYGROUP: When off leash with a male dog Lucy greets and continues to approach to sniff but has her hackles raised throughout the interaction. She eventually offers a few bounces once solicited. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/30/17 During her initial medical exam Lucy was very tense, snapped, growled and held eye contact. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Lucy has never been outside of her home for over 10 years and appears poorly socialized. Lucy will need to be placed with a New Hope partner that can provide the necessary behavior modification needed to aid in acclimating her to new environments and people. She would do best in a calm, quiet, structured environment where she can approach on her own terms to her own level of comfort. Potential challenges: _X_House soiling _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Lucy is extremely nervous around strangers and can be difficult to handle. She has no bite history but shows clear signs of discomfort. It is important to respect those signs and to help Lucy gain comfort and confidence in order to avoid escalation
