06/01/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None 5/30/17 Unaltered Male, Stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/1/17 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He 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. Tag: 2. Dog is fearful but unresponsive when touched. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog moves his legs/body so that the Assessor is unable to hold the paw Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Flank squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 1. Minimal interest, dog sniffs toy. Summary: Shakespeare appeared very fearful during his assessment, moving away from the assessor and being difficult to position. At times he sought out comfort from the assessor. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 5/31: When introduced off leash to dogs in the care center Shakespeare approaches and sniffs those who are nearby. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: 5/30/17 Upon intake, Shakespeare appeared fearful with a tucked tail. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/30/17 During his initial medical exam, Shakespeare was snapping. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Shakespeare so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium-low level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Shakespeare is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Shakespeare is very fearful at the care center and has at times snapped. It is important to always go slow and give Shakespeare the option to walk away from any social interaction. Shakespeare should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Shakespeare’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Shakespeare would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
