06/19/17 12:50 Basic Info Rocky is a 5 year old small white dog who was born in the home with owners. Owners are moving and cannot bring Rocky with them. Rocky last visited a vet a year ago. Socialization When strangers come over Rocky barks at them but keeps his distance but if they run away he chases them and bites at the ankle of their pants. He lives in a home with children and is tolerant and playful and plays gently. if it is a strange child he reacts to them He does not like to be picked up however and will snap if attempted. He reacts to all strnagers the same no matter their age. He is relaxed around other dogs and playful with cats. He has never bitten a person or animal before. Behavior Rocky is house trained and does not destroy household items. He is not bothered by having his food or toys touched while he has them. When being bathed, brushed or having his nails trimmed he will bark, growl and snap. when unfamliar people approach his home or family member he barks. New family Rocky has a medium level of activity at home and likes to follow owners around the house. He really loves to play with balls and play fetch with something squeaky. He sleeps in his owners bed or his dog bed. He is fed dry food twice daily. He is trained touse the weewee pad. he is well behaved when left home alone and knows the commands sit, come and no in both spanish and english. he does not pull on the leash and is not walked off leash.

Rockie was placed into a kennel with ease which was hard for me as I wanted to keep him in my arms.

07/05/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 7/3/17 Unaltered Male, Owner Surrender (In previous home for five years) Previously lived with: Adults and children Behavior toward strangers: Barks, stays away but when they move he will chase them and bite their ankles and pants Behavior toward children: Tolerant and playful of the children he lives with, but reacts to new children Behavior toward dogs: Relaxed Behavior toward cats: Playful Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Rockie is described as having a medium level of activity. Other notes: Snaps if he is picked up or if he is bathed or groomed. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 7/5/17 Look: 5. Dog bares teeth. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: When Rockie’s collar was touched for look, he bared teeth, so the rest of the handling portion of the assessment was not conducted. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 7/5: When introduced off leash to dogs at the shelter, Rockie greets politely and wanders the pen. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Rockie had a loose body and allowed all handling, MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/5/17 During his initial medical exam, Rockie was tense and snapped. ENERGY LEVEL: Rockie’s previous owner described him as having a medium level of activity.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Rockie is currently with touch and novel stimuli, as well as his history of not being good with new children, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Rockie has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. 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: Fairing has bared teeth and snapped when fearful at the care center. In his previous home, he barked at and nipped at new people. It is important to always go slow and give Rockie the option to walk away from any social interaction. Rockie should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Rockie’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Rockie would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. Consultation with a positive reinforcement trainer/behavorist is highly recommended to work on Rockie’s behavior of nipping at new people in the home.
