12/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: None Unaltered, seized Bite history: Yes, Wallace was brought to the care center after an incident that left a house mate (female pit bull) with punctures. Details about the incident are unavailable. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Look: 1. Dog jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, panting. Tag: 3. Dog over-escalates mid game, jumps up hard on assessor, needs redirection. Squeeze 1 / 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back paw. Toy 1: 1. Dog keeps a firm grip, body loose and wiggly. He does not place his body between you and the toy. Summary: Wallace displayed high activity and movement, with an open mouth and soft body throughout. He showed a fairly low threshold for escalation on Tag that Wallace was not able to deescalate himself from, and required redirection from the Assistant. He will likely need some guidance on impulse control. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/23/16: During his initial medical examinations, Wallace allowed all handling and restraint without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Wallace so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to Wallace’s quick escalation during the Tag game, we recommend a home without very young children. Potential challenges: _X_Basic manners/Poor impulse control: Wallace will likely need guidance to learn coping and impulse control skills when he becomes stimulated or aroused, so he can deescalate quickly and in a controlled manner.
