11/02/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/2/16 18:56 Basic information: Max a roughly 2 yr. old Yorkie Chihuahua mix. The Owner got her from a friend as a gift; she has owned Max for over a year. The owner surrendered Max because she moved to a home that does not allow pets. Max was last taken to a vet on March 2016. Socialization: Around strangers Max is very fearful and defensive (will growl and bark at the person). Max has not lived with children. Max has never been around other dogs so the owner has no idea how he would behave around them. Max has never bitten anyone. Behavior: The owner stats that Max is not bothered when some moves his food or treats while he is eating, when someone takes his toys away or when someone disturbs him while sleeping. Max likes to be brushed and given bathes but has never had his nails trimmed. When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches a family member or his home he growls and barks at them. The owner does not know how Max is around loud noises such as storms or fireworks. For a new family to know: The owner describes Max as shy but friendly (with the owner) with a medium activity level. His favorite activity is to play fetch with his owner. In the home Max tends to follow the owner around the house and is kept mainly indoors. Max sleeps in the floor of the bedroom on a blanket. Max was fed Pedigree dry and wet dog food twice times a day. He is house trained and has never had an accident in the home, when outside he goes to the bathroom on or around cement and grass. For exercise Max is used to brisk walks on the leash and twice a day and does not pull on the leash. 1Behavior during intake: Max was very tense with stiff body, when approached by staff Max growled at the staff member and when scanned he attempted to bite the staff members hand, owner was able to assist us, scanned (-), collared and placing in dog kennel.

SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/6/2016 Upon entering the SAFER assessment room, Max appeared fearful/uncomfortable, tolerating minimal handling though snapped multiple when any attempts to engage were made. Max must be placed with a New Hope partner. PLAYGROUP NOTES: 11/7: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Max approaches and greets, then roams by himself. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/2/2016 During his initial medical exam, Max was calmer once held but snaps and resists being picked up and fights on leash (alligator rolls), will still snap if face is touched. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (See known history; Max has attempted to snap multiple times during his stay at our care centers, for this reason along with known history, we believe Max would benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Max has displayed fearful/defensive behavior during his stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling; any form of direct touch may result in a fearful bite. It is recommended that Max be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating him to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Max to new and unfamiliar situations.)
