Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None Unaltered, stray SAFER ASSESSMENT: 12/16/2016 Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body is trembling; 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, lip licks. Tag: 3. Dog spins toward the touch and tries to exit on each pass. Squeeze 1: 3. Dog pulls back paw very quickly, closes mouth, becomes stiff. Flank squeeze 1 & 2. Dog does not respond at all. Toy 1. No interest. Summary: Snow was tense throughout assessment. She warmed up during Tag and would playfully run alongside, but showed discomfort with each pass. Snow was difficult to leash to return to her kennel, ducking away from the leash. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/14/16 During initial exam snow appeared to be nervous and resisted handling. During a veterinary exam two days later, Snow snapped when her face was touched. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home _X_No children (under 13): Due to Snow’s discomfort with close interaction and handling over a range of days and environments, we recommend an adult-only home for her. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Snow has been uncomfortable with handling throughout her stay, and while she has shown good coping skills in most situations, she has also shown at least one escalation to snapping. We recommend counterconditioning and desensitization to help Snow tolerate and even appreciate touch, as well as a very slow approach, the ability to initiate interaction and not be forced to interact, and time to warm up to her new home and new family at her own pace.
