DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When off leash with other dogs at the Care Center, Sharaz displays stiff body language when greeting other dogs. She immediately mounts them, persisting after the handlers interrupt. No information was given about Sharaz’s previous interactions with other dogs at the time of her surrender. Due to Sharaz’s low display of sociability towards other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that she be the only resident dog at this time.
4/17: Sharaz immediately becomes stiff when greeting a novel male dog at the gate. She is muzzled and allowed to greet him face to face, at which point she jumps on his back and they are immediately separated.
4/18: Sharaz becomes stiff when greeting a novel female dog. A muzzle is placed on her as a precaution. Once in the pen, she immediately mounts the other female, persisting after the handler’s interrupt. The session is ended.
Sharaz allowed all handling, and showed no concerning behavior.
We have no history on Sharaz so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment.
Sharaz is a young, enthusiastic, social dog.
Sharaz will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with
behaviors outlined below.
_x_Single-dog home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to Sharaz’s low display of sociability towards other dogs -lunging and mounting them- the Behavior Department recommends that she be the only resident dog at this time. Reward-based, force-free training is recommended to help Sharaz associate other dogs with things she enjoys, like toys or treats.
