Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper dog: A1087119 Pepe previously lived with adults and has been around children. The owner stated Pepe is reactive towards strangers and children, he will bark and growl if anyone approaches him. The owner mentioned Pepe will bark and growl if he sees another dog or cat while on walks. It was reported by the owner Pepe will growl and snap if his food is touched while eating, and his body will tense up and bare teeth with a treat and toys. The owner stated Pepe has a previous bite history on several occasions. Pepe bite his owner on the left hand when trying to place the leash on him but didn’t break skin. The next incident happened when the owner daughter was talking on her cell phone and her dad; Pepe then lunged and bit her hand but didn’t break skin. The last incident happened when Pepe bit a neighborhood child when they approach him on his walk but didn’t break skin. At intake it was reported Pepe was tense and growled at the counselor, he attempt to snap when being collared. Limited handling was conducted due to his behavior. Not all handling items were able to be conducted as Pepe bared his teeth at the assessor when attempt to come close to him. 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 Pepe does not approach, but instead turns his body to the side and exits. 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: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog. Turns body to side in relation to other dog, or exits.
