03/27/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 03/25/17 Intact, Stray Other notes: Upon intake, Montgomery lunged and snapped towards handling. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 03/27/17 Summary: Montgomery has allowed minimal handling in the care center, he is tense and avoids interaction with his new caretakers. He watches and tracks the humans around him carefully at all times. Due to the behaviors observed, and out of concern for his stress level, we do not feel it is appropriate to perform a handling assessment at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Handlers were unable to collar Montgomery due to his defensive behavior; head whipping and air snapping. He greeted a novel female through the gate with a soft neutral body. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 03/25/17 During his initial medical examination, Montgomery allowed minimal handling; growling, baring teeth. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no known history on Montgomery but he shows fearful behavior in the care center and displays a low energy level, we cannot be certain of how this may translate into a home environment. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the fear/avoidance behavior displayed in the care center, we cannot fully evaluate Montgomery and feel that he will be best set up to succeed through placement with a New Hope partner. We recommend only positive reinforcement-based, force-free training for Montgomery as aversive methods are likely to heighten his fear and increase aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Montgomery is extremely nervous around strangers and can be difficult to handle. He has no bite history but shows clear signs of discomfort. It is important to respect those signs and to help Montgomery gain comfort and confidence in order to avoid escalation.
