06/23/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Stud was difficult to remove from his kennel showing fearful body language, tucked tail and tries to avoid any interaction. Stud is fearful of the shelter environment he walks with a low and fearful body language. He was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. Stud was shy and nervous and trembled during handling, with stiff or fearful body language. He was fearful and unresponsive to the touch while playing tag. He was not interested in toys. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter no young children. Stud is somewhat fearful and needs time to warm up to the handler. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Stud is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2.
