Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A In-tact, Stray Other notes: Finder found tied to a fence, Rio allowed Finder to approach and untie him. Rio did not allow counselor to scan, when attempted he snapped at councilor. When councilor attempted to remove collar he snapped again, when counselor attempted to remove Rio from cage for medical, he would not allow and lunged at counselor once cage door was opened. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/10/2016 Rio is not an appropriate candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time due to being shut down; he is unable to be safety removed from his kennel; Rio displays no social behavior, actively avoids interaction, and displays all appropriate warning signals. PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/6/2016 Rio was difficult to remove from his kennel for his initial medical examination; lunging/growling at the kennel bars. Once removed from his kennel, he appeared shut down on leash though tolerated very minimal handling during his exam. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Rio has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake and is now shut down in shelter. Due to this behavior, Rio is not a candidate for a SAFER assessment at this time. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Rio has solely displayed fearful behavior in shelter, he displays no social behavior towards handlers and attempts to increase distance/avoid. Because he is so uncomfortable, Rio does not tolerate any form of human-touch and has snapped upon direct contact.)
