Behavior: When there are fireworks or thunderstorms outside, Scooby will bark. He is not bothered when someone takes away his treats or toys, being disturbed while sleeping, or if someone brushes his coat. Scooby is afraid of being given a bath, or having his nails trimmed. He will bark if someone tried to take away his food, or when unfamiliar people would approach the home or yard. For a New Family to Know: Scooby is described as friendly, affectionate, playful and independent. He has a high activity level and loves to play with balls, chew toys and frisbees.

KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 2/26/17 Neuter status, Owner surrender (5 years in the previous home) Previously lived with: Adults and children (ages infants to older) Behavior toward strangers: Shy at first but will growl if he is not comfortable with anyone. Behavior toward children: Relaxed and respectful Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly, affectionate, playful and independent with a high activity level Other notes: Upon intake Scooby was nervous and lip licking, he had a stiff body and would growl when someone moved fast. After a few minutes, Scooby relaxed and allowed all handling from counselor. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/2/17 Summary: Scooby is difficult to remove from the kennel, lunging and snapping at the leash. He appears to be uncomfortable or afraid of the slip lead. He has also allowed minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for his stress levels and his response to restraint, we feel Scooby is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see his owner surrender profile for a full summary of his behavior in her previous home. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Scooby immediately begins anxiously barking when he enters the pen. He does not focus on anything in particular, just continues to bark. Due to the helper dog’s discomfort with his barking, they were not introduced. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 2/26/17 During his medical examination, Scooby was fearful, growling and muzzles for vaccines. ENERGY LEVEL: While we have not witnessed this in shelter, Scooby is reported to have a high energy level.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Scooby is extremely nervous around strangers and can be difficult to handle. He has no bite history but shows clear signs of discomfort. It is important to respect those signs and to help Scooby gain comfort and confidence in order to avoid escalation. _X_Kennel presence: While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Precious may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating in his kennel. We recommend potential adopters be comfortable managing this behavior and keeping themselves safe in any similar future situations.
