Behavior: Rubio isn’t bothered by the following: having his treats/food/food bowl,toys touched/moved, being restrained or being brushed/groomed.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full Profile 5/5/17 Unaltered Male, Owner Surrender (In previous home for two years) Previously lived with: Adults and other dogs Behavior toward strangers: Shy Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Friendly, affectionate, playful, and exuberant with the dogs he lived with Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes, will also go on wee wee pads Energy level/descriptors: Rubio is described as friendly, playful, affectionate, and loving with a medium activity level. Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 5/7/17 Summary: Rubio appeared very fearful in the assessment room, running quickly away when he was approached by the assessor. He would not come to the assessor with coaxing and remained in the corner trembling. The assessor took his collar and he panicked, thrashing around and attempting to flee. Out of concern for his stress level, the handling assessment was not conducted. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/5/17 During his initial medical exam, Rubio was tense and snapped. ENERGY LEVEL: Rubio’s previous owner described him as having a medium level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Rubio is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Rubio has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful: Rubio is very fearful at the care center and avoids handlers, attempting to flee when touched. It is important to always go slow and give Ribio the option to walk away from any social interaction. Rubio should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Rubio’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Rubio would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
