He appears to be uncomfortable or afraid of the slip lead. He has also allowed minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for his stress levels , we feel Randy is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see his owner surrender profile for a full summary of his behavior in his previous home. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Randy keeps to himself with calm male and female dogs. According to his previous guardian, when Randy meets another dog on the street he is aloof and doesn’t interact.

The counselor was able to collar him and take a photo. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/15/17 Randy was anxious during his initial examination. ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner describes Randy as an energetic dog. Randy displayed low energy and movement throughout assessment. Randy will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. RECOMMENDATIONS: NHO _X_ No young children (under 5)- While Randy has lived with children previously, he has shown considerable fear of strangers and interaction avoidance in the care center. We feel he may be intimidated by very young children. We recommend adopters prepared to go slowly with Randy and allow him to warm up to his new home and new family at his own pace. _X_ Place with a New Hope partner
Potential challenges: _x_ Fearful- Randy has shown high levels of fear in the care center in each interaction, though he manages his stress well and has not escalated to warning signs. He needs a very slow approach and the ability to warm up to new people and new environments at his own pace. Randy should be permitted to initiate interactions and solicit attention when he feels comfortable, rather than being forced to interact.
