Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Helper dog: A1074375 Storm came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. When attempting to remove Storm out of her kennel she would growled and try to bite the handler. During SAFER Storm came into the assessment room nervous and tense, she was not interested with the assessor. Not all handling items were able to be conducted as Storm growled and lunged at the assessor on when attempting to remove her E-collar. She displayed no interest in the toy item during this portion of the assessment. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Storm freezes and growls with whale eyes when approaching the helper dog. Storm has a previous bite history when a police officer tried to rescue her from under a truck. When the officer attempted to bring her closer to her Storm bit the officer on her right hand between her thumb and pointer finger, skin was broken. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a New hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Toy: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: 4. Dog approaches helper dog while growling with stiff body language.
