10/27/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Static greets the helper dog with a tense body but then offers a play bow. Due to history however, he is muzzled for this interaction. Upon introduction he bounces into the pen and immediately begins soliciting from the helper dog. He will bound after her but is respectful when the helper is not comfortable with his play style. His owner reports he has “spent time with a 9 month old male American Pit Bull terrier. He was very playful with this dog and played in an exuberant manner with him.” There was a recent incident, however, of Static biting a small dog on the street. The behavior department feels that Static could live with another large, playful dog, but should not be placed into a home with any small dogs. We also recommend exercising caution when walking him on the street to avoid any potential future bites or incidents with small dogs.
