02/18/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
02/18/16 20:26 BASIC INFO Nitro is a ~5 year old neutered Yorkie / Silky Terrier mix. He was left at one of our care centers. He was adopted but returned 6 days later because he bit one of his new family members. SOCIALIZATION/BEHAVIOR Nitro was relaxed and sniffed another small, male dog that he met. He didn’t mind when his family added water to his bowl next to him while he ate his dog food. He didn’t show interest in toys. He didn’t mind when they brushed his teeth. Sometimes, he didn’t mind when they picked him up, but other times he growled. He barked at new people who came over, keeping distance from them, but didn’t mind when they approached his family members. Nitro bit a 13 year old girl (his primary caretaker) in his home. He has a dog bed that he usually drags over to her, wherever she is, in his mouth, so he can sleep near her. He also humps this often, as well as clothing sometimes. When someone tries to take his bed or touch him while he’s in his bed, he growls and tries to bite them. Despite this, the girl tried to put his leash/collar on while he was lying on his bed. He bit her fore-finger, leaving two punctures that bled but didn’t require stitches. This was his only biting incident. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Nitro’s family describes him as friendly, affectionate, and medium energy. He follows them around and sits in their laps. He lived inside and slept on a dog bed. He ate dry Blue Buffalo food. He’s housetrained and potties outside. He didn’t have accidents except one morning when he went #1 in the bathtub. He went for brisk walks and pulls on his leash. INTAKE Nitro was tense with wide eyes and his ears a little to the side. During his first intake, he tolerated all handling, but we didn’t handle him during his second intake.

02/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Nitro is fearful of the shelter environment he walks with a low and fearful body language. He was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. Nitro had a low body position during the tag test, but followed the assessor at the end of the leash. He was not interested in toys . The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter. Nitro is somewhat fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler. The behavior department advises that future adopters should be able to provide positive experiences for Nitro. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Nitro be given the opportunity to interact at their own pace. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, shy body language, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 1.
