09/22/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Limited profile Date of intake 9/19/2017 Unaltered female, stray Behavior toward children: Social, plays exuberantly Other: Munica is allergic to chicken. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 9/22/2017 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted, lip lick, tail down, mouth open. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, mouth closed, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 3. Dog over escalates during game, jumping up with moderate intensity toward handler and leash, but settles easily at end Squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are back. Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip, body loose. She does not place her body between you and the toy. Summary: Munica showed some discomfort with up-close handling, lip licking, but tolerated the touch. She displayed a low threshold for arousal as she escalated fairly quickly during the tag portion though recovered well. PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Munica is initially tense when greeting other dogs, but loosen up as her session continues. She is tolerant of most inappropriate behaviors, and occasionally mounts. Munica was surrender as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Munica be placed in a home with resident dogs that are well socialized and match her calm sociability. INTAKE BEHAVIOR Date of intake 9/19/2017 During intake, Munica had a loose body and wagging tail, she allowed all handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial 9/20/2017 During her initial medical exam, Munica allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have limited history on Munica so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Munica dispays a medium level of energy.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5) – Munica may become overly aroused with quick movements and may be most comfortable in a home without very young childen. He otherwise shows good coping skills, even when uncomfortable. Older, dog savvy children may be considered pending an in-depth interaction. Potential challenges: _X_Social hyper-arousal – Munica has displayed a low threshold for arousal, rapidly escalating and jumping up with moderate intensity during tag game. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Munica to new and unfamiliar situations. _X_Anxiety – Munica has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center (whining, stress panting). This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have minimal history on Munica, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home. Munica may do best initially in a calm, quiet, structured routine in her new home environment so she can acclimate to her new surroundings
