Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/1/17 Summary: Pop-Pop has allowed some handling in the care center but he is tense and avoids interaction with his new caretakers, in line with his owner’s report of Pop-Pop’s behavior around strangers. He watches and tracks the humans around him carefully at all times. Due to the behaviors observed, and out of concern for his stress level, we do not feel it is appropriate to perform a handling assessment at this time. Please review the full owner surrender profile for information on Pop-Pop’s behavior in his previous home as a guideline. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: PLAYGROUP: 2/1: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Pop-pop briefly approaches and greets, otherwise keeps to himself. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/29/17 During his initial medical exam, Pop-Pop was tense, he lunged and snapped. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the fear/avoidance behavior displayed in the care center, we cannot fully evaluate Pop-Pop and feel that he will be best set up to succeed through placement with a New Hope partner. We recommend only positive reinforcement-based, force-free training for Pop-Pop as aversive methods are likely to heighten his fear and increase aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Pop-Pop is extremely nervous around strangers. He has a bite history and shows clear signs of discomfort; It is important to respect those signs and to help Pop-Pop gain comfort and confidence in order to avoid escalation.
