07/08/16 20:28 Basic Information: Mia is an American Pit bull Terrier who was surrendered due to her previous owners moving to a place where animals are not allowed. Socialization: Around strangers Mia is protective of her family and will growl when first meeting them. When Mia plays with adults she is exuberant. Mia has been around children ages 2 through 15 and is relaxed and plays gently with them. Mia has never been around other dogs or cats so it is unknown how she will react to being around them. Mia has never bitten another person or animal. Behavior: Mia has no behavior issues and is not bothered by loud sounds. Mia is friendly when someone touches her food or bowl while she is eating, takes a treat or object away, gives her a bath, pulls/pushes her off of the furniture, brushes her fur or holds/restrains her. Mia is afraid of having her nails trimmed. If an unfamiliar person approaches Mia’s family or home Mia will growl but will get used to them after sometime. For a New Family to Know: Mia is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, mellow and excitable with a very high activity level. When at home Mia will stay in her favorite spot and likes to play with stuffed toys and games of tug. Mia was kept indoors only and was fed rice and chicken mixed with dog food. Mia is house trained and rarely has any accidents. When left alone Mia is well behaved. Mia knows the commands: sit, stay and give paw. Mia will go for brisk walks for exercise and likes running.

07/13/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Mia previously lied with adults and has been around children ages 2-15 years old. The owner stated Mia is shy around strangers and will growl when first meeting them; she is relaxed and gentle with the children. The owner mentioned if an unfamiliar person approaches Mia’s family or home she will growl but will get used to them after sometime. The owner describes Mia as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, mellow and excitable. It was reported by the owner Mia is house trained, has a high activity level and well behaved when home alone. Due to the behavior demonstrated in the shelter the behavior department believes that Mia is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time. At intake it was reported Mia was nervous, she allowed all handling with assistance from the owner. During Mia medical exam she was extremely nervous, hesitant to walk, pancaked to scale and urinated on her-self. In the kennel Mia would hide in the corner with her body pancaked to her bed as she trembles. A SAFER assessment will not be conducted due to safety and stress level concerns. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a New hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time.
