Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 2/7/17 Unaltered Female, Stray Other notes: Upon intake, Sandy lunged and attempted to bite the counselor. A catch pole was needed to remove her from the crate she was in. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/9/17 Summary: Sandy has not been able to be removed from the kennel due to lunging against the door and snapping at people who approach. She appears to be uncomfortable in the shelter environment. She has allowed very minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and due to safety concerns, we feel Sandy is not a good candidate for a handling assessment at this time. PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/7/17 During her initial medical exam, Sandy was fractious. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Sandy so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. 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: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Sandy 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: Sandy is not responding well to the shelter environment and is throwing herself against her kennel door, lunging, growling, and snapping at any people who approach. The behavior department recommends Sandy be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Sandy has displayed fearful behavior in shelter, she lunges, growls, and snaps at anyone who comes near her. Sandy is unable to be safely handled at the care center. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist who uses positive reinforcement, reward based training is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Sandy presents with outside of the care centers. _X_Kennel presence
