Silvio is a 4 year old black and brown male shorthair chihuahua who arrived as a stray surrender. Upon intake Silvio was very still for introduction and would cower when approached. Silvio was willing to approach and investigate on his own. Counselor was able to scan for microchip (negative) collar and photograph. Silvio allowed some petting but was cautious with a semi tense body. Silvio walked well on leash and was resposive to guidance.
Silvio was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior with dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Silvio wanders in the pen, becoming sexually motivated and mounting female dogs. Silvio persists after handler interruption.
SAFER: NEW HOPE ONLY
Helper dog: A1075156
Silvio came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Silvio was tense and allowed some petting, he allowed all handling. During SAFER Silvio came into the assessment room tense and nervous, he was not interested with the assessor. Not all handling items were able to be conducted as Silvio bared his teeth, growled and lunged at the assessor when attempting to approach him. He displayed no interest in the toy item during this portion of the assessment. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Silvio approaches the helper dog with his body relaxed and tail at spine. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time.
Toy 1: No interest.
Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral.
