Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sheba previously lived with 2 adults and has been around and playful with children ages 1-12 years old. The owner stated Sheba has interacted with cats but usually stay to her-self. It was reported by the owner when children attempt to remove the food bowl Sheba will low growl with her tail tucked and she does not take well with strangers in the home. The owner also stated Sheba is crate trained and house broken. At intake it was reported Sheba was nervous and reactive towards strangers, no handling was done by the counselor help was done by owner. During SAFER Sheba came into the assessment room calm and relaxed, she was shy but friendly towards the assessor. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Sheba follows the handler with her body low and fearful during the tag interaction, during paw squeeze item Sheba pulls back her paw with tense body posture next flank was applied which she didn’t respond at all. During the resources portion of the assessment Sheba was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Due to some concerns Sheba will give a low growl when the children attempts to remove her food bowl, so the behavior department feels she can be suitable for an experience adopter with no children. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is tense, trembles and fearful, her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body a bit tense, mouth closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1 & 2: 3. Dog closes mouth, becomes tense. Flank squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog smells, then turns away. Dog-dog: Sheba briefly greets the helper dog with a tense body and face and then frenetically explores the yard. Once inside the pen with the other dog Sheba becomes assertive to play solicitations by attempting to mount with very tense chest bumps. Update: Sheba has been exhibiting behavior in kennel that is concerning to the Behavior Department. When approached, she gives a hard stare, lip curls, growls, barks and lunges in that ascending order. She has been receiving driveby treats since intake however she is not responding to treatment. At this time, we do not feel comfortable housing Sheba in the public adoptions room due to safety.
