01/06/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
01/06/16 13:37 BASIC INFORMATION Roscoe is a 1 year old male Border collie mixed. He was given to his owner as a gift who had him for a year; he is being surrendered because his owner is moving to private and is unable to have any pets. His most recent care was to get vaccines. There aren’t any known health or injury problems. SOCIALIZATION Around strangers Roscoe tends to be aggressive he barks. Hasn’t been around children and plays somewhat rough with adults also. He hasn’t been around nor spent time with any other dogs or cats. There is no history of him biting another person or animal/ BEHAVIOR He can be hard to control at times and he tends to bark a lot. His owner kept a muzzle over him while he was away from the home so he didn’t bark. He barks if you touch his food bowl and doesn’t like treats or objects being taken away from him, he can snap. He’s not bothered when he’s getting a bath and enjoys having his coat brushed. When unfamiliar people approach the home or owner he smells them to get comfortable with them. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Roscoe is described as being friendly. His activity level is low. When home he tends to follow you around. He likes toys such as balls and squeaky. His favorite games are fetching and tug. He’s mostly kept indoors and sleeps on his own bed. He’s house trained and well behaved when left alone in the house and yard. He knows such commands as “sit” “down” and “heel”. For exercise he takes slow walks on the leash, he can pull hard on the leash. When off the leash he wander but will come when you call. He usually potty on the cement. Roscoe eats Blue Buffalo dry food and at least 3 times a day. BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE During intake Roscoe was curious around his surroundings.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper dog: A1061862 Roscoe previously lived with 1 adult. The owner states Roscoe tends to be reactive and barks towards strangers. The owner mentioned Roscoe is house trained, has a low activity level and well behaved when home alone. It was reported by the owner Roscoe barks if you touch his food bowl and doesn’t like his treats or objects being taken away from him, he will snap. At intake it was reported Roscoe was curious and anxious, he allowed all handling from the owner. During SAFER Roscoe came into the assessment room fearful and anxious, he was very social towards the assessor with a slow approach, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Roscoe was fearful, unresponsive and tries to exit during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Roscoe was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Due to some concerns stated from the previous owner Roscoe will snap if his food bowl, treats or toys are taking away, so the behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is tense and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body tense, mouth closed. Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched. Approaches the Assessor when the game ends. Dog is crouching, and lip licks. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog licks, then turns away. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral. Update 1/10/16: Since Roscoe arrived at the Care Center he has exhibited severely fearful behavior (hyper-salivating, continuously cowering in the corner, avoiding eye contact). He is experiencing a high level of stress and is not thriving in the shelter environment. Acknowledging this and incorporating Roscoe’s history of resource guarding in his previous home, the Behavior Department does not feel that he should remain at the shelter longer than necessary and recommends that placement be sought as soon as possible where he can hopefully benefit from positive reinforcement behavior modification.
