06/28/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 6/26/17 Unaltered Female, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/28/17 Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: While attempting to collar Sally, she snapped at the assessor. For this reason, the handling portion of the assessment was not conducted. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 6/27: When introduced off leash to dogs in the care center, Sally is fearful and avoidant of interaction. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Sally allowed minimal handling MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/27/17 During her initial medical exam Sally was tense and growling ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Sally so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Sally 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: Sally 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/potential for defensive aggression: Sally has allowed only minimal handling at the care center, growling and snapping when handled. Guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is recommended to assess behavior after decompression in a new home environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing or exposing Sally to new and unfamiliar situations.
