Summary: Stixs was fearful and would not allow any handling. He would become tense and lip lick.
Stixs is not difficult to remove from the kennel, However he appears to be uncomfortable with up close contact. He has also allowed minimal handling from his caretakers. Out of concern for his stress levels and his response to restraint, we feel Stixs is not a great candidate for a handling assessment at this time.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Stixs mostly keeps to himself in a group of small male and female dogs. He is tolerant of their face to face interactions.
Stix was nervous and alert upon intake. He did bare his teeth when scanned. Stix allowed limited handling.
Stixs tried to bite handlers. He had to muzzled
We have no history on Stixs so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. The movement appeared to be aimed at stopping the assessor’s activity/etc.
We recommend only force-free, reward-based training techniques for Stixs.
_X_No children (under 13): Due to how uncomfortable Stixs 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: Stixs 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.
