09/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rocky Road was adopted then returned to our care centers for having bitten the previous owner in the home over being corrected for urinating in the home. According to the owner, he did not tolerate petting for long periods or time or rough petting; petting him from behind or near his rear would lead to a snap and an attempt to bite. The owner also reported he does not like to be startled. Due to the noted concerns, the behavior department believes Rocky Road would benefit best from placement with a New Hope only partner; because he presents challenging behavior when nervous, placement with an experienced foster is recommended to allow a period of decompression in a new home environment to then follow up with this behavior. Force-free, reward based training is advised. 8/26 SAFER Assessment Rocky Road walks calmly on leash. He was excited when the behavior team tried to collar him; he was mouthy (light). During the assessment Rocky Road was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, mouthed (light). He was overexcited during handling, jumping up, mouthy (light) and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Rocky Road followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. He was not interested in toys. Rocky Road was surrender to us. According to his previous owner around strangers Rocky is friendly and outgoing and exuberant when he played with adults. He lived with children ages one through ten, with them he was relaxed and playful and gentle at play. He’s been around small and large dog breeds and with them he is relaxed and playful and gentle but exuberant at play. If his food bowl was taken while eating he continued to eat with a relaxed body. Rocky Road is playful if a treat or toy is taken from him. Rocky Road is an active dog he need a significant amount of exercise and mental stimulation. The behavior department feels that he can go to an experienced home. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2.

08/26/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs Rocky Road is anxious. He seeks exit and ignores any interaction from the helper dog. A previous owner reports that “he’s been around small and large dog breeds and with them he is relaxed and playful and gentle but exuberant at play.” The behavior department recommends a pre-adoption interaction as well as allowing Rocky Road time to acclimate to his new environment before introducing him to any resident dogs.
