05/10/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/10/17 20:39 Pac is a 14 year old German Shepherd lab mix. He was adopted for North Shore 14 years ago and the owner is surrendering him due to his new apartment not being pet friendly and the apartment he sub leases wanting him out. He has no injuries or health problems that the owner is aware of. Around strangers, Pac will go up and sniff people for a couple of minutes and then seek attention. He has lived with 5-7 year olds and is a bit fearful. The owner states his neices would grab his tail and try to ride him so he is fearful of all children and will run away. He does not like when people yell, grab, or stomp at his owner; he will growl at the other person. He loves to play chase and fetch and is described as exuberant. He has not lived with other dogs. He has lived with cats in the past and loves to be around them and sniff them. He has not bitten a person or another animal. As he gets older, his owner noticed he is not able to hold in his urine or feces as he use to and will go indoors. His owner is not able to provide him with more walks because of the hours he works. He does not like firecrackers or fireworkers and usually seeks comfort in his owner. He will growl if you touch or try to take away food or treats from him. He reportedly does not mind having toys taken out of his mouth. He does not like when you bathe him, trim his nails, or brush him out. He is not bothered by strangers entering the apartment. Pac is described as a friendly, affectionate, and stubborn dog. He will play like he’s a puppy when you throw balls around but likes to spend his days sleeping. He is kept indoor onlys and is use to eating wet and dry Pedrigree food. His favorite treats are anything off his owner’s plate and peanut butter. He recently started to have accidents at home because of his age. He is well behaved when left on his own. He is a stubborn dog but knows how to sit and stand. If walked off leash, he will run around but will come when called.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
CANINE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION for Pac A1111672 KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 5/10/17 Neutered male, owner surrender (in previous home for 14 years) Previously lived with: Adults, children (ages 5-7), cats Behavior toward strangers: Sniffs, then seeks attention Behavior toward children: Fearful, runs away; was harassed by a young child and has generalized that fear to all children. Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: “Loves to be around them” Resource guarding: Growls over food and treats Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes but is able to hold his urine and feces for shorter periods than he used to, has accidents now (owner attributes this to his age) Energy level/descriptors: Pac is described as friendly, affectionate, and stubborn Other notes: Pac will growl when people yell or confront his previous owner SAFER ASSESSMENT: 5/12/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 4. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand with a fast head movement. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Flank Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Pac was distracted by the environment but approached the assessor with coaxing. He was uncomfortable during sensitivity, head flipping toward the assessor’s hand, but he did not escalate and did not aggress. We cannot be certain how his medical conditions may be influencing his response to certain types of touch. He showed no concerns on any other handling items. He took treats enthusiastically and gently after the assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: According to Pac’s previous guardian, Pac has not lived with other dogs. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Pac displays soft body language when greeting a novel female dog. When she greets him face to face, Pac displays a lip curl -an appropriate warning- indicating that he does not wish to interact. When the female continues to greet him, he offers an appropriate correction by barking and air snapping in her direction. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/11/17: During his initial medical examination, Pac was attention-seeking and allowed all handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: Pac has been calm and shown a low activity level in the care center. His previous owner notes that he plays exuberantly when balls are thrown, but spends his days sleeping. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult-only home _X_No children (under 13): Pac’s previous owner notes that he is uncomfortable around children due to experiences with a child who pulled his tail and rode him. _X_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Pac’s preference to keep to himself when around other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that he not be taken to dog parks. Potential challenges: _X_House soiling: Pac is noted to be less able to hold his urine and feces for long periods, likely as a result of his age, and has been having more frequent accidents recently. We recommend frequent, consistent walks for Pac going forward. Accidents should never be punished as it can damage the human-dog relationship and is likely to make the problem worse. _X_Resource guarding: Pac’s previous owner notes that he may growl over food and treats. We recommend that Pac be left along while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in his future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Pac’s mouth, and any time something is removed he should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. He should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games. _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Pac is uncomfortable with certain types of handling (see SAFER assessment). This may be due to his age and physical condition.
