03/03/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 3/1/17 Intact Male, Stray Other notes: Upon intake Rutabaga had a loose wiggly body, he allowed all handling. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/3/17 Summary: Rutabaga has remained highly difficult to manage throughout his stay at our care centers as he displays a low threshold for arousal and barrier reactivity and frustration. Any attempts to approach Rutabaga result in sole focus on leash-chewing/tugging and ultimately destroying making this a safety concern to remove him from kennel. Due to the severity and intensity of the behavior observed, we believe he may benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue partner that can provide an experienced foster home who will allow Rutabaga to decompress and acclimate to a new home environment. Safe and appropriate management is highly advised. Out of concern for his stress levels and his response to restraint, we feel Rutabaga is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see his behavior memo for a full summary of his behavior in the care center. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Rutabaga displays neutral body language as he greets a novel female dog. He persistently sniffs her genital area before keeping to himself and exploring the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/3/17 During his medical examination, Rutabaga allowed all handling.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Rutabaga appears to easily aroused and becomes uncomfortable with the leash, snapping at the caretakers in the care center, for these reasons we advise against a home with children at this time until further assessments are made. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Rutabaga is difficult to remove from the kennel, snapping at the leash and trying to rush out of his kennel. He is not acclimating well to the shelter environment and remains challenging to handle, for these reasons, placement with a New Hope rescue partner who can further assess his behavior in a more stable environment may benefit him best at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control _X_On-leash reactivity/barrier frustration: Rutabaga can be reactive towards the rope, constantly snapping at the leash when attempting to removing him from his kennel. _X_Leash-biting: Rutabaga has become increasingly difficult to manage during his stay at our care centers, as his threshold for stress and arousal remain low. He makes multiple attempts to grab and climb up the leash, unable to readily settle and refocus. We cannot be certain if this behavior may present itself outside of the shelter environment though recommend potential adopters feel comfortable safely managing it.
