08/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rafy was difficult to remove from his kennel showing teeth, growling and lunging at the rope. He did not show any social behavior. Once he was out of the kennel he walks with a low and fearful body language. He was uncomfortable when the behavior team tries to collar him. Rafy had a stiff body language, he wrinkles his muzzle and air snapped at the assessor hand. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Rafy was not interested in toys. Rafy was surrender to us. According to his previous owner Rafy has to warm up to strangers. Rafy plays gentle with both adults and children. She lived with 3 children ages 9, 10 and 13. Rafy has never lived with another animal. Rafy allows you to take away his food bowl, water bowl or toy away. He enjoys stuffed toys and rope toys. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Toy 1: No interest.
08/19/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Rafy has been fearful in the care center and does not allow handling enough to collar, so he has not yet been introduced to any dogs off-leash. However, when dogs pass by him he will watch, with fearful body language, until they are out of sight. His owner reports he has not been introduced to any other dogs, so any in home behaviors are unknown. The behavior department recommends allowing Rafy time to acclimate to his new environment before placing him into a home with other dogs.
