Thor has never suffered any injuries however he does have seasonal allergies. HE IS ALSO ALLGERIC TO SEAFOOD. Thor last visit to the vet was a year ago. SOCIALIZATION Around stranger Thor can be approaching but timid depending on how the stranger initially approaches him. The previous owner noticed when strangers approached Thor too fast he does lower his body and will back away. Once the stranger attempts to rub and pet Thor he will instantly approach for more. Thor has spent time with a 1 year old child. The previous owner usually kept thor separate from the child as a precaution however she did notice that thor would wag his tail in the child direction to try to play. BEHAVIOR Thor has never bitten anyone or animal. Thor isn’t bothered by the following : being picked up or held ( by the owners) , having his food bowl touched or taken away, loud or sudden sounds, being pushed off of furniture. The previous owners never attempted to remove toys or treats from the animal’s mouth. Thor is fully house trained. Thor is both an indoor and outdoor dog. When he was outside, he liked to watch people walk pass and bark at birds. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Thor is best described as friendly, affectionate and playful. He has a high activity level.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 3/30/17 Intact Male, Owner surrender (Since puppyhood in the previous home) Previously lived with: Adults and spent time with a 1 year child. Behavior toward strangers: Timid Behavior toward children: They kept him separated but notice Thor would wag his tail and try to play Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Thor displays a high activity level in the household. Other notes: Upon intake Thor was quiet and relaxed, he allowed all handling. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 04/01/17 Summary: When approaching Thor’s kennel, he was in front with soft body posture and his tail wagging but anxious to come out. When entering the assessment room Thor appeared anxious, panting heavily, but he did sit next to the handler and allowed petting. However, when trying to position for the handling assessment Thor was persistent with trying to mount the handler and was difficult to redirect and settle. Due to this observed behavior in addition to the behavior change seen during medical handling, we are concerned about staff safety with a handling assessment at this time and the SAFER was ended. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Thor displays soft body language when greeting a novel female dog. He is slightly sexually motivated and persistently licks the female’s genital region though he does not mount. He then explores the pen, tolerating the female dog mounting him. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/31/17 During his medical examination, Thor was friendly at first but attempts to bite and growl during the exam. ENERGY LEVEL: Thor displays a very high activity level in the care center in line with what is reported in this “KNOWN HISTORY”. His previous owners describe him as a high-energy dog. In the care center he has been active and enthusiastic. He may have a low threshold for arousal and needs guidance to learn how to appropriately channel that energy when he becomes overstimulated. Thor will need daily mental and physical stimulation and exercise, and a force-free, positive reinforcement-based training class may help her to learn impulse control and to train desirable behaviors that can be rewarded.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the display of over-arousal, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the underlying anxiety and further investigate this behavior in a foster home before placement into a permanent home environment. Potential challenges: _X_Social hyper-arousal: Thor’s low threshold for arousal rapidly escalates, and he is unable to readily settle. Immediate intervention and consultation with a qualified veterinary behaviorist/professional trainer is strongly recommended to aid in addressing this issue to prevent further behavioral concerns that may appear in the future if not treated right away. We recommend only force-free, reward based training when introducing or exposing Thor to new and unfamiliar situations _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Anxiety
