08/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake Roxxy was energetic and wagged her tail when counselor approached, she jumped on counselor and solicited attention. Counselor was able to scan (negative) and collar. She had a wiggly loose body and allowed counselor to reposition for photos, she was receptive to treats and sat calmly. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 8/5/17 Roxxy was friendly but becomes overstimulated easily and then becomes nippy. Did alligator roll and snapped when restrained for blood draw. IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: Since her arrival at the Care Center, Roxxy has displayed concerning kennel presence behavior- barking, lunging, and growling when approached. In spite of enrichment efforts, the behavior remains persistent. The Behavior Team feels that she is not a candidate for the adoptions room and placement should be sought as soon as possible. ENERGY LEVEL: Her previous owner reports a high activity level.Roxxy displayed high energy and movement throughout assessment. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the (behaviors outlined below). _X_No young children (under 5)- Due to a high energy seen in the care center, (jumping bouncing) being difficult to control due to her energy level. we feel that Roxxy may be intimidating to young children. Potential challenges: _X_ House soiling- Roxxy is reported to have frequent accidents in the house, and appears not to have been housetrained in the past. She will need guidance and consistency to learn to eliminate outside. We recommend crate training (the crate must be made positive and never used as a punishment), frequent walks, rewards for eliminating outside (treats, toys, games), consistent feeding schedule, and careful monitoring when inside. Accidents should never be punished as it can damage the human-dog relationship and is likely to make the problem worse. _X_ Destructive behavior- Roxxy is reported to chew on furniture/paper when left alone for long periods, so we advise future adopters to make sure to provide mentally and physically stimulating, appropriate chew toys to keep Roxxy occupied when left alone.
