Max becomes afraid when being given a bath and will try and run away. Max’s previous owner did not attempt to brush him or trim his nails so it is unknown how he will react to those events.

03/30/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 3/26/17 Intact Male, Owner surrender Previously lived with: Adults, a cat and children Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Relaxed and friendly Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Relaxed and playful Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Max displays a very high activity level in the household. Other notes: Upon intake Max was very excited greeted staff by licking their hand. Max allowed all handling. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/30/17 Look:1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity:1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Summary: Max was initially friendly though a bit anxious, he displayed a low threshold for arousal when play was initiated, unable to readily settle. After the “Tag” portion of the assessment, Max made several attempts to grab and tug at the leash, jumping high into the air, displaying some vocalization. Because Max was unable to recover steadily and was slow to de-escalate, the behavior department believes placement with a rescue partner may be most beneficial at this time to investigate the depth of his arousal levels. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: According to Max’s previous owner, Max has spent time with other dogs and will often bark and jump towards them. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Max displays sexually motivated body language (standing tall, whining and a vibrating tail) when greeting a novel female dog. Once in the pen Max solicits and engages in cooperative play with his objective being to mount the female. When there is a break in play, Max mounts the female but responds well to handler interruptions and continues to play. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/27/17 During his medical examination, Max was calm and allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Max displays a very high activity level in the care center.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the display of over-arousal, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the underlying anxiety and further investigate this behavior in a foster home before placement into a permanent home environment. Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute frustration and teach him to control his impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training is recommended _X_Social hyper-arousal: Max’s low threshold for arousal rapidly escalates, and he is unable to readily settle. Immediate intervention and consultation with a qualified veterinary behaviorist/professional trainer is strongly recommended to aid in addressing this issue to prevent further behavioral concerns that may appear in the future if not treated right away. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Max to new and unfamiliar situations
