06/01/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: 5/24/17 Unaltered Female, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Barks at them but then becomes friendly Behavior toward children: Gently playful Behavior toward dogs: Respectful, tolerant, and playful Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: Yes, at the care center Snow White bit a staff member who was attempting to leash her to take her out of her cage. The bite left a small puncture, no medical care was sought. Housetrained: Goes on wee wee pads Energy level/descriptors: Snow White is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, and excitable with a low activity level. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 6/1/17 Summary: Snow White is difficult to remove from the kennel, lunging and snapping at the leash. She appears to be uncomfortable or afraid of the slip lead. She has also allowed minimal handling from her caretakers. Out of concern for her stress levels and her response to restraint, we feel Snow White is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time. Please see her owner surrender profile for a full summary of her behavior in her previous home. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with other dogs, Snow White avoids interaction. She will attempt to sniff as the other dog is walking away. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: 5/24/17 Upon intake, Snow White barked at the counselor. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/24/17 During her initial medical exam, Snow White barked and snapped. ENERGY LEVEL: Snow White’s previous owner described her as having a low level of activity.
IN-SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: Upon arrival at the care centers, Snow White showed defensive behaviors when removing her from her kennel (i.e. barking, snapping, leash biting). Once out of her kennel, she had softer body language, and allowed collaring and light petting. Despite difficulty removing her from her kennel, Snow White slowly became comfortable with select handlers and solicited attention from them. Over the course of a couple of days, Snow White’s kennel presence improved; she began soliciting attention, and became easier to remove from her kennel from multiple handlers. She continues to solicit attention from handlers once outside her kennel. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Snow White is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Snow White has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Snow White is very fearful at the care center and has bitten when afraid. It is important to always go slow and give Snow White the option to walk away from any social interaction. Snow White should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Snow White’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Snow White would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.
