09/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
There was a incident within the care centers, where Roscoe “muzzle punched” a caretaker in the face while he was opening his kennel door to give him a toy; jumping up, his teeth grazed the caretaker’s face, resulting in broken skin. Because of the bouts of high energy and exuberance displayed throughout his stay, we feel he would benefit best from an Experienced adult only home. 8/23 SAFER Assessment Roscoe lived with his previous owner since puppyhood. He is noted to be playful and gentle with children, and sometimes rough with adults. He is relaxed around other large and small dogs, and has not been exposed to cats. He is reported to destroy items in the home, including furniture, though we have limited information on exactly what items he chewed and why this may have been happening. He is described as playful, excitable, and anxious, with a high activity level. At intake it was reported Roscoe had loose body posture with his tail wagging, he allowed all handling. During SAFER Roscoe came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, he was friendly and affectionate towards the assessor. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Roscoe joins the game but was a bit distracted during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Roscoe was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Roscoe must be given appropriate outlets for his energy and for his need to chew; we recommend food dispensing toys, stuffed Kongs, and long-lasting chews. The behavior department feels he is suitable for an “Average” adopter. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins. Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Dod-dog: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Roscoe greets the other dog displaying soft and nervous body language. He mostly keeps to himself as he explores the yard.
