03/08/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/27/17 Unaltered Female, Stray Bite history: Yes, Luna bit her owner when the owner was sitting on the couch and got up. Luna bit her arm and broke skin. A neighbor reported that Luna frequently bites her owner. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/8/17 Summary: Luna is difficult to remove from the kennel, lunging, barring teeth, and snapping when her cage is approached. She appears uncomfortable in the care center and has allowed very minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and for safety concerns, we feel Luna is not a candidate for a handling assessment at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Pending. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/27/17 During her initial medical exam, Luna was tense and baring teeth. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Luna so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Luna is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Luna has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. She also has a multiple bite history in her previous home. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression (Luna has a multiple-bite history and escalates quickly to snapping and biting, so this is an established behavior that she offers when she feels threatened. Luna needs careful behavior modification and management to prevent future bites. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods for Luna as more aversive techniques are likely to increase fear and increase the risk of aggression.)
