PLAYGROUP: When off leash at the Care Center, Neo is sexually motivated, and licks the other dog’s genitals. He listens to handler interruptions and explores his surroundings. Neo’s previous guardian reported that Neo he has lived with dogs and is relaxed and playful towards them. The Behavior Department recommends that Neo be placed in a home with resident dogs that match his calm sociability. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 09/19/2017 Upon intake, Neo allowed all handling – loose and wiggly. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 09/18/2017 During his initial medical examination, Neo allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Neo displays a low energy level in the care center – his owner reports a high activity level in the home.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: While Neo remains social with handlers, he showed concerning behavior over the toy during the SAFER assessment, quickly escalating to a bite of the assess-a-hand when an attempt was made to remove the toy. We are concerned at this quick arousal and escalation so we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can further investigate this behavior in a stable home environment and provide any necessary behavior modification. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Neo escalated to a snap over the toy on the SAFER assessment, which may manifest as guarding behavior in a future home (his previous owner reports resource guarding behavior). We recommend only force-free, reward-based behavior modification to address the challenges.
