According to the owner Ocho is house trained, has a high activity level and well behaved when home alone. At intake it was reported Ocho was tense and attempts to hide, he allowed minimal handling. During SAFER Ocho came into the room nervous and tense, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Ocho bared his teeth at the assessor when attempting to pet him on his back. He displayed no interest in the toy resource item during this portion of the assessment. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Ocho seemed to be fearful with his tail tucked. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 3. Dog approaches the helper dog with his tail tucked, head low and whale eyes.
