06/20/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Quinn A1115507 is at-risk for New Hope Only behavior. While she has displayed some social behavior, Quinn has been observed to lunge and growl at children on several occasions (also reported by finder). She has also become increasingly challenging to manage in addition to her on-leash reactivity; she has been observed to leash bite with escalation (growling) though has readily refocused, there is concern for potential behavioral deterioration if her stay is prolonged.

06/16/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/16/17 17:51 Basic Information: Quinn is estimated to be 2 years old, she is a tan and white dog with short floppy ears and a wrinkled face. She was found as a stray. Her finder described her as friendly. She has no known injuries or health problems Behavior During Intake: Quinn greeted me with a wagging tail and relaxed body. She took treats gently, gave kisses, allowed me to pet and collar her. She walked on leash without pulling and went into her kennel with very little direction.
06/20/2017 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Her name means “Wisdom, Reason, Intelligence” according to the dictionary, with no mention of beauty, calm and class. Perhaps I need to update Mr. Webster? Our Quinn is a beauty in her light tan coat, pleasantly plump figure and megawatt smile. Likely housetrained, taking care of business as soon as we were out the door, we head to the park, with Ms. Quinn showing off lovely leash manners. Her tail wags gently as we walk and she gets softly bouncy from time to time, making me wish I had an area in which to take her off-leash to play. Play bowing to a couple of small dogs that come close, Ms. Quinn then rolls over on the grass, all fours waving in the air, feeling oh so good! Her pretty belly calls out for a quick rub, and she’s back up wagging her tail in feel-good pleasure. Quinn does know sit, although does it reluctantly, and takes treats so very softly. She can be a bit shy but finally joins me on the bench for a quick snuggle and more photos and treats, her smile lighting up a cloudy sky. Hopping back into her kennel with ease when our time together was over, she settled down for a rest thanking me with her soft eyes. Our beauty is hoping you’ll stop by to meet her today.

CANINE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION for Quinn A1115507 KNOWN HISTORY: Limited Profile 6/16/17 Unaltered Female, Stray (Information from finder) Behavior toward children: Growls at them Behavior toward dogs: Fractious with the finder’s dogs SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/18/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Quinn was social with the assessor but became a bit stiff during squeeze, showing some discomfort with her paws being handled. PLAYGROUP: The finder of Quinn cites conflict between her and the resident dog in the home. Quinn has been uncomfortable while interacting with dogs in the care center. The behavior department recommends allowing Quinn time to decompress as the only resident dog in a home at this time. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Quinn had a relaxed body and allowed handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/17/17 During her initial medical examination, Quinn appeared uncomfortable. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Quinn so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity. IN-SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: Quinn has been observed to display concerning behavior in the presence of children during her stay in the care center (growling, lunging). We cannot be certain how this behavior may translate outside of the shelter environment though recommend exercising safe and appropriate management. Quinn has also been reported to become, at times, easily aroused on leash, attempting to grab and tug, at times vocalizing (growling); force-free, reward based training is advised when attempting to modify this behavior.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to lunging and growling at children when on leash, we recommend an adult only home. _X_New Hope Only: Due to all noted concerns displayed in the finder’s home in addition to observations made in the care center, the behavior department recommends Quinn be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Quinn to acclimate comfortably to her new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Quinn to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Quinn presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Quinn has been noted to lunge and growl at children. The help of a certified trainer or behaviorist is strongly recommended when introducing Quinn to children as we do not know how she will react to them. Positive reinforcement, reward based training only is advised. _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: At the care center, and as reported by the finder, Quinn has been observed to react children passerby on leash, lunging towards them and growling. Quinn may need positive reinforcement, reward based training to teach her to look at you rather than novel stimuli that may startle her. We recommend a front clip harness or head halter to help manage this behavior.
