01/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Since Peluche has been with us she has been exhibiting some concerning behaviors while in our adoptions area. She has been reported by several staff members of lunging and snapping when in her kennel and when outside of her kennel on more than one occasion. In consideration, of this behavior and her previous owner’s comments “that Peluche does not like being picked up. He attempted to bite and growl. He is selective of people and at times lunges at strangers” the behavior department believes that Peluche will do best placed with a rescue partner that can provide any behavior modification necessary at this time before placement into a home. 1/3/16 Peluche came in as an owner surrender citing he suddenly started attempting to bite everyone in the house except for one teenage family member. It should be noted Peluche came in with severely matted fur which may have been extremely uncomfortable and a significant factor to consider. Owner reports Peluche lived with children ages 3 and up, wagging tail and relaxed until this recent behavior developed. Owner reports Peluche has not been around dogs or cats, when he comes across them on the street he will hard bark and bare teeth. Owner also reports Peluche will attempt to nip or bite if strangers approach, selective with people. Owner states Peluche is not bothered if his food bowl is touched while eating, but may growl and become tense if toys are touched. He low growled upon entering his kennel. Once matted fur was removed, Peluche appeared much more sociable and relaxed. He held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, body neutral. Peluche stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, lip lick, eyes squinting, ears and tail neutral. He ran and played along during Tag game, but was slightly hesitant to continue at each pass. Peluche approached at the end of game with some coaxing. Peluche did not pull his paw back on both Squeeze attempts. He playfully engaged with Toy, taking it away, body neutral. Due to history of attempting to bite when uncomfortable, yet still allowing all handling from a teenage family member, the Behavior Team feels Peluche would do best with a rescue partner at this time. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, body relaxed Sensitivity: 1. Stood still, eyes squinty, lip lick. Tag: 2. joins the game, hesitant on each pass. Approaches at end. Squeeze 1 /2: 1. Gently pulls back Toy 2. Dog takes toy away, body neutral
