When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Surge avoids greeting a novel female dog. Her leash is held to give Surge the opportunity to approach on his own. He continues to avoid her, tucking his tail and running away when she sniffs his rear end. He spends his time exploring the pen. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/16/16: During his medical examination, Surge tolerated only minimal touch and restraint. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Surge has been uncomfortable with close proximity and has avoided interaction during his time in the care center. His previous owner describes a dog who is social and affectionate with his family, but also a dog uncomfortable with strangers, and that is what we are seeing at the care center. Surge has managed his stress fairly well and gives clear and protracted warning signs, but due to concerns voiced by his previous owner in addition to the handling challenges we have experienced in the care center, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can re-evaluate his behavior in a home environment before placement into a permanent home.
