03/21/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
Rockie Road A1106685 is a 2yr old male brown brindle & white AMPBT mix who was taken back after being with another person for over a yr & is being surrendered due to personal problems. Rockie Road was last seen by a veterinarian as a puppy and currently has no known health issues. Around strangers Rockie Road is shy for several minutes. He’s lived with children ages 5yrs, 11yrs & 15yrs that he was exuberant, very playful & somewhat rough with them (during play he doesn’t know his strength and gets a little too riled up). Rockie Road is the same with the adults. He hasn’t lived with other animals but when he spots a dog on the street he barks and pulls the owner towards them at times (they haven’t let him get close enough). Rockie Road has bitten once befor which resulted in some blood drawn. During storms/fireworks he’ll bark. Rockie Road isn’t bothered by the following: being disturbed while sleeping/resting or being brushed. Rockie Road hasn’t had his nails trimmed or had his food/food bowl, toys/treats touched/moved. During baths Rockie Road attempts to jump out the tub. If someone approaches the home/family member he’ll bark. For A New Family to Know: Rockie Road is described as a good dog, affectionate (at times), playful, confident, & excitable with a high activity level. Rockie Road enjoys playing with ball, squeaky, rope toys and games of fetch & tug. He’s mostly an indoor only dog who sleeps on the floor & is walked 2x a day where he doesn’t pull on his leash majority of the time. Rockie Road eats dry dog Pedigree food 2x a day and likes the bone marrow dog treats. Rockie Road’s known commands are “sit”, “stay” & “come”. Intake Behavior: Rockie Road allowed handling. He took treats gently from my hand and hopped into the kennel on his own. Rockie Road allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of which he posed for like a pro.

Other notes: Upon intake Rockie Road took treats gentle from the counselor, he allowed all handling. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/29/17 Summary: Rockie Road displayed stiff body language, hard stare with his tail above spine level when the assessor approached him. Out of concern for his stress level, an assessment will not be performed at this time. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: According to Rockie Road’s previous owner, when RR spots a dog on the street he barks and pulls the owner towards them at times. Due to Rockie Road’s diagnosis of CIRDC, an off leash dog-dog interaction cannot be conducted at this time. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/22/17 During his medical examination, Rockie was friendly and easy to handle. ENERGY LEVEL: Rockie Road displays a very high activity level in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, as well as Rockie Road bite history, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the biting and underlying anxiety. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: See known history, Rockie Road has the willingness to escalate to a bite when uncomfortable.

His owner raised his hand to strike him and Rockie Road bit him on the hand and the side. Rockie Road was at the front of his kennel with a tense body and whale eye when we approached to take him out. When I opened the kennel door he came to me, and he allowed me to place the rope on his neck. He pulled out to the pens. Once there he allowed me to place a collar on him, then he explored with a tense body. He spent the entirety of our interaction sniffing around the pen. He would approach us, but would quickly return to sniffing whenever we showed any signs of paying attention to him. We did not attempt to touch him. He was not difficult to get back on the rope, but he balked when we went to put him in his kennel and it took multiple tries to get him in. Because Rockie Road seems very uncomfortable at the Care Center, we are recommending he be “Behavior walks only” for the time being. -AG & AE
