He has lived in a home with children of ages 4, 7 and 11 year old. Around the children pirate is playful but is somewhat rough due to his size, and his habit for jumping on people. When he sees another dog in the street he becomes wiggly and wants to approach the dog to engage in play and he has no bite history. Pirata is a little hard to control due to his size and strength. If someone tries to touch his food bowl he will growl at the person. During bath time he is tense but he allows the handling.

Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 3. Dog follows but becomes easily aroused, mouths the leash and slowly de-escalates. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Pirata was friendly but very high energy in the assessment room. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Pirata initially attempted to mount both male and female dogs. Since being neutered, Pirata has displayed soft and social body language with calm male and female dogs with minimal mounting behavior. According to Pirata’s previous guardian, when Pirata sees another dog in the street he becomes wiggly and wants to approach the dog to engage in play. The Behavior Department recommends that Pirata be placed resident dogs that match his calm sociability. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/5/17: During his medical examination, Pirata was very friendly and jumpy, he allowed all handling.
IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: 05/20/17 Pirata has continued to display concerning anxiety and deteriorating behavior in the Care Center. He has become increasing kennel reactive and difficult to remove in and out of his kennel. Additionally he has become rope reactive, biting and climbing up the rope during an adoptions interaction. For Pirata’s well-being and the safely of staff and volunteers, Pirata is no longer a candidate for the adoptions room and will be placed in holding while placement is sought. 05/08/17 Pirata has begun to display concerning anxiety and high arousal behavior in the care center. Today while being returned to the adoptions room from playgroup he was difficult to leash, grabbing and tugging at the leash while leaping onto staff. ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner reports a high activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5)- Due to potential food guarding behavior. Pirata gave an appropriate warning of his discomfort (growl) but we feel that young children may not know to respect this warning. Older, dog savvy children can be considered as long as the adults feel confident that Pirata can be left alone while eating so he does not need to escalate from a growl. Behavior modification for food guarding behavior can be found at aspcapro.org. _x_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Pirata’s mounting behavior, and the propensity for that behavior to not be received well by other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that Pirata initially be socialized with other dogs in a more controlled setting. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding- Pirata is reported to growl over food. He should be left alone while eating, and should be taught the cue “drop” and other trade up games so Pirata learns that dropping food or having people around while he is eating is rewarding. Behavior modification protocols for food guarding behavior can be found on aspcapro.org _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control- It is recommended that default behaviors such as “Leave it”, “Sit/Stay”, “Down” are reinforced to substitute any frustration and teach her to control her impulses instead of simply reacting; proper management is also advised. Force-free, reward based training only is recommended.
