11/03/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/03/16 17:54 Siren for the most part got along with the children and people in the home but did inexplicably bite the father twice but did not break skin. They assumed that it was a reaction to him being startled. They did not take him on walks but put weewee pads down but he did not use them. Siren was calm during intake and although a ittle skittish he allowed handling.
No Web Memo
11/06/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray Bite history: Snapped/bit finder when startled though did not break skin. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/6/2016 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body is trembling, 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, lip lick Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, neutral Squeeze 1: 4. Dog growls. Flank squeeze 1 / 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy Summary: Siren appeared uncomfortable throughout assessment, displaying warning growls. Because Siren displays handling sensitivity during his stay at our care centers, the behavior department believes placement with a New Hope partner would be most appropriate at this time. PLAYGROUP: When off leash with other dogs Siren engages in play when solicited. He will mount other males during play as well. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/3/2016 During his initial medical examination, Siren tolerated all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13)(See potential challenges) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Siren would benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Siren has been observed to snap when startled. It is recommended that Siren be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating him to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Siren to new and unfamiliar situations.)
