07/14/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Scoop A1118072 is at risk for a level of reactivity toward other dogs that precludes placement in the adoptions room. He has sought attention from his human caretakers and allows most handling, though he did become tense with medical handling and during the tag portion of the handling assessment; however, he has not been social when introduced to other dogs both on-leash and off-leash and has escalated to threatening behaviors and been persistent in his mounting behavior. Please read the full behavior assessment for additional details.

07/12/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Limited 07/10/17 Intact male, Stray Behavior toward strangers: Friendly, outgoing, rough Behavior toward children: Friendly, outgoing, rough Behavior toward cats: Not good with cats Resource guarding: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly affectionate, playful and excitable with a very high activity level SAFER ASSESSMENT: 07/12/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears likely back, may lip lick. Tag: 3. Dog responds with his tail high, ears forward, mouth likely closed for at least half of the assessment item, body stiff and body checks the Assessor. Dog is often focused on other stimuli in the room. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog gently pulls back Squeeze 2: 2. Dog gently pulls back Toy: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy or rawhide to you Summary: Scoop remained anxious throughout the assessment though displayed some social behavior; he solicited attention and leaned in to touch/towards the assessor. Scoop became uncomfortable when attempting to engage in play (stiff bodied, tense) though readily settled and refocused. We recommend slow and soft approach. PLAYGROUP: While here at the Care Center, Scoop has displayed low sociability towards other dogs, becoming stiff and mounting them. Scoop was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Scoop be the only resident dog. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 07/11/17 During his initial medical examination, Scoop was uncomfortable and displayed appropriate warning signals when handled. ENERGY LEVEL: Scoop is a young, enthusiastic, social 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 his energy and enthusiasm.
IN SHELTER BEHAVIOR: 7/13/17 Since arriving at the Care Center, Scoop has displayed poor kennel presence when anyone approaches. He growls, barks, lunges and muzzle punches the kennel door. In spite of Enrichment efforts, his behavior has not improved so he is not a candidate for our adoptions room. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adult-only home (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) _X_No children (under 13) _X_No cats _X_Single-dog home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to Scoop’s display of defensive aggression, the Behavior Department recommends that he be the only dog in the home at this time. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Scoop associate other dogs with things he enjoys like toys or treats. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Scoop has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times, especially when a person is reaching over him. It is important to always go slow and give Scoop the option to walk away from any social interaction. Scoop should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Scoop’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Scoop may do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings. _X_Fearful: Scoop is timid with new people. He manages his stress well and has not escalated or shown any aggression, but he does need time to warm up to new people. He does best with a slow approach, and should be permitted to greet new people at his own pace and to initiate interaction (rather than being approached and pet immediately by a new person) so he has time to adjust and become comfortable before he is handled. He should be spoken to softly and gently. _X_Anxiety: Scoop has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, barking) continually through the SAFER and other interactions outside. This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have limited history on Scoop so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. _X_ On-leash reactivity: Scoop has been displaying extreme on-leash reactivity towards other dogs in the Care Center. When being remove from his kennel, he immediately charges at the other dogs in the room (lunging and snapping), and becomes difficult to redirect when he sees another dog on a walk.
07/11/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
While here at the Care Center, Scoop has displayed low sociability towards other dogs, becoming stiff and mounting them. Scoop was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Scoop be the only resident dog. 7/11: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Scoop is nervous as he slowly approaches to greet a novel female dog with a tucked tail. As he greets her, his body becomes increasingly stiff and he begins lip curling and growling as he muzzle punches the gate. As a precaution, a muzzle is placed on him. Once the gate is opened, he immediately mounts the female dog and the session is ended. 7/13: As a precaution, a muzzle is placed on Scoop. Once in the pen with a novel male dog, Scoop persistently sniffs his rear end and attempts to mount him.
