Exam Type BEHAVIOR
CANINE EVALUATION FOR: Milo A1115994 KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 6/20/17 Neutered male, Owner surrender (Lived in previous home for 6 years) Previously lived with: Adults, has been around small children. Behavior toward strangers: Friendly Behavior toward children: Relaxed Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Relaxed and playful Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Milo is described by the owner as friendly, affectionate and playful. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/21/17 Unable to SAFER due to behavior concerns Milo is difficult to remove from the kennel, lunging and snapping at the leash. He appears to be uncomfortable/afraid of the slip lead. He has also allowed minimal handling from his caretakers. Out of concern for his stress levels and his response to restraint, we feel Milo is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see his owner surrender profile for a full summary of his behavior in his previous home. Toy: No interest Summary: Milo was fearful, and tense. He will yelp and pull away when the assessor approaches. Milo does not feel comfortable on the leash, he prefers to be held. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 6/21-6/23: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Milo mostly keeps to himself in a group of small male and female dogs. He is tolerant of their face to face greetings. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 6/20/17 Milo during intake was relaxed and friendly. He allowed to be collard, scanned and photographed. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/20/17 Milo allows all handling. Remained very quiet throughout exam, slightly tense. ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner describes Milo as an friendly/calm/affectionate dog. The movement/jumping appeared to be aimed at getting aimed at stopping the assessor’s activity/etc. We recommend a front-clipping harness to manage the discomfort, along with rewarding Milo for walking nicely on leash. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_ No young children (under 5)- Milo seems a bit uncomfortable with quick movements and may be most comfortable in a home without very young children, particularly until the reason for his crying out when on a leash is determined. Dog-savvy young children can be considered pending interaction. _X_Place with a New Hope partner
Potential challenges: _X_ Handling/touch sensitivity-Milo has snapped when he is uncomfortable with being handled, showing discomfort with touch in certain areas. It is important to avoid touching Milo at this time and being cautious when touching him in other areas as we do not know where he may have other sensitivities. Positive reinforcement, reward based training should be used to pair touch with good things such as food rewards in order to teach Dog to be more comfortable with this _X_ Fearful- Milo has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers, at times avoiding interaction and shying away from direct touch. Milo startles easily and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement. He displays proper warning signals as well as increasing distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised. _X_ Kennel presence- While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Milo may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating in his kennel(snapping, yelping, and avoiding the leash).We recommend potential adopters be comfortable managing this behavior and keeping themselves safe in any similar future situations.
