Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Mister is described as friendly, affectionate, and playful with a high activity level. KNOWN HISTORY: None 5/8/17, first stay at care center Neutered, Owner Surrender SAFER ASSESSMENT: 7/14/17 Summary: Due to Mister’s extremely high levels of fear in the care center, he is not a candidate for a handling assessment at this time. PLAYGROUP: 7/14/17: Mister was difficult to remove from his kennel for playgroup. Once out, he displayed heightened anxiety, constantly head-flipping with tense body language. We were unable to collar him for a fence greeting and when leashed to return to his kennel Mister began panicking and thrashing. We are unable to place Mister into playgroup at this time. Note he has a history of killing a small dog. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: 7/12/17: During intake Mister was panting heavily, had a tense body and tucked tail, and lip curled when the counselor approached. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/13/17: During his initial medical examination, Mister was terrified: trembling, urinating and defecating.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Mister got along with an 8-year-old in his previous home, but due to the highly fearful behavior seen in the care center, our inability to fully assess behavior in the present environment, and our lack of information about Mister’s exposure to other children, we recommend an adult-only home. _X_ No cats: Behavior toward cats specifically is unknown, but due to Mister’s history of killing a small dog we strongly recommend against a home with cats, small dogs, or other small pets. _X_ Recommend no dog parks: Due to Mister’s history of killing a small dog we caution against off-leash time around other dogs. We are unaware of Mister’s behavior toward dogs aside from his housemate and mother, who he grew up with and got along well with. We are unable to explore Mister’s behavior toward other dogs in the care center due to his panicking when leashed and walked. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Mister will need a behavior modification program to address his extreme fear. We cannot be certain about how much of this behavior may be shelter-specific, but Mister is likely to need significant guidance and support to gain confidence and develop better coping skills than he is currently demonstrating. We recommend ONLY force-free, positive reinforcement, reward-based training methods for Mister as more aversive methods are likely to increase his fear and increase the risk of aggression. Aversive methods are particularly damaging to dogs with fear levels like Mister is experiencing. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful _X_Anxiety
