He did approach the assessor, but during tag he snapped with touched. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 5/3: When introduced off leash to dogs in the care center Scooby is nervous and keeps to himself. He approaches to sniff a select calm dog. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/2/17 During his initial medical exam, Scooby was tense but allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Scooby’s previous owner described him as having a high level of activity. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Scooby 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: While Scooby’s previous owner describes an affectionate, playful dog, he is not thriving in the shelter environment and has had a hard time in the care center. He has given clear warnings but has escalated to snapping when pushed. We are concerned that extra pressure may elicit higher level warnings. We feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification guidance in a stable home environment will best set Scooby up for success in a future adoptive home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Scooby is fearful at the care center and has snapped when afraid. It is important to always go slow and give Scooby the option to walk away from any social interaction. Scooby should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Scooby’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Scooby would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
