Summary: Mikie was playful during the handling assessment, he allowed all handling. However, he did become a bit mouthy playfully grabbing, and biting at the rope; quickly releasing at the end of play. PLAYGROUP: Mikie’s owner did not provide information about his previous behavior around other dogs. Mikie is tense when initially greeting at the fence and then lunges and snaps at the helper dog. We were unable to safely muzzle him for an off-leash interaction due to his clear warning signs that he was uncomfortable with handling; hard barking and growling towards the handlers. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 9/1/17 During intake the dog was very stressed when being taken out of the police crate. He was giving the ACS whale eyes and was hard barking and growling. The counselor was not able to take his pic, scan for a chip or collar the dog. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 9/3/17 During the initial examination Mikie was loose body language. nervous, but allows all handling with minimal restraint. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Mikie so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. Mikie is a young, enthusiastic, social dog. Mikie displayed high energy and movement throughout assessment.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to concerns noted in the home expressing Mikie’s resource guarding behavior. We feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Single-pet home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to the concerning behaviors that Mikie has shown during playgroup (see GROUP BEHAVIOR SUMMARY), we feel that Mikie should not visit dog parks and be the only resident dog. The Behavior Department recommends that he be socialized in a more controlled setting until his behavior towards other dogs can be further addressed. _X_ Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the behavior displayed in the home environment in addition to his behavior in shelter (concerns with redirection) we believe placement with a rescue group may be most beneficial at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Potential resource guarding was noted in the previous home as Mikie was observed to growl and nip when engaged with (toy) items and at times when attempting to remove them. For this reason, we advise against ever removing items from Mikie’s possession without safely trading for an item or greater or equal value. Guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended to aid in safely managing/modifying this behavior in a new home environment. _X_Low threshold for arousal/risk of redirection: When brought out for playgroup, Mikie seemed aroused by the other dogs and quickly tipped into overstimulated. He became reactive while being muzzled and redirected by growled, tensed, and hard barked at the handler. Due to this low threshold for arousal and its ability to tip into redirection, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner.
