04/19/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
04/19/17 19:34 Petunia was found as a stray a couple days ago. She appears to be friendly with all people because she walks up to them, sniffs, them and wags her whole but when spoke to and pet. She has not been around children or other animals that last few days. She was kept tied up in the backyard. She was fed dry dog food and she would eat it right away. She did not show the finder any behavior concerns. She appears healthy with normal eating and bathroom patterns. The surrender states that she whined most of the time in his care. When she was in the admissions office, she whined but approached the couneslor and sniffed her. When she was spoken to and pet, she would relax and wag her tail. She was not interested in the treats given to her but allowed all handling. When the surrender left, she started to whine more, try to shake off the leash, and pull to leave. She still allowed handling and relaxed a little when pet.

MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 4/20/17 Petunia was shy but allows handling and solicits comfort (petting). ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Petunia so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) _x_Single dog home: Due to the reactivity Petunia has displayed, the Behavior Department recommends that she be the only resident dog. Reward-based training can be used to help Petunia decrease her arousal levels.
04/21/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Petunia displays assertive body language with male and female dogs and may become reactive towards them by growling and lunging. Petunia was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior around dogs is unknown. Due to Petunia’s low level of sociability towards other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that Petunia be the only resident dog. 4/21: Petunia displays neutral body language when greeting a novel male dog. She displays assertive posturing, standing tall behind the male dog and mounting. She is interrupted by the handlers and the session is ended. 4/22: When interacting with a female dog, Petunia becomes slightly stiff and stands tall while following the other female. She listens to handler interruptions and explores momentarily before returning to the other dog. 4/23: Petunia mostly keeps to herself and interacts with the handlers. When a female dog greets her she becomes stiff, her hackles raise and her movements slow down. She is easily re-directed and relaxes her posture immediately. 4/24: Petunia becomes reactive towards a sexually motivated male dog. They are separated. 4/29: Petunia displays assertive body, standing tall with a high vibrating tail when greeting a calm female dog. As she continues to greet, her body becomes increasingly stiff. She then begins to low growl and lunges at the other dog. The session is ended.
