03/15/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Yankee came into our center as an owner surrender after he attempted to bite owner’s 1 year old grandchild. It is reported Yankee will growl if children in the home move too fast or get too close, if they continue towards him he will nip or snap. Owner reports Yankee gets along with other dogs, respectful, tolerant, engaged in play. It is reported he may growl if anyone touches his Food, Toys, Treats. He is reportedly housebroken/crate trained and well behaved when alone in the home. During intake, Yankee was very nervous, tried to bite, requiring restraint with towel to complete the exam. He walked nicely on leash for his relief walk, no pulling. Yankee growled during Look item, therefore remaining tactile portions of the SAFER assessment were skipped. He showed no interest in Toy, though this may be due to environment as owner reports he enjoys balls and playing fetch. When off leash with other dogs, Yankee is tolerant of male and female dogs but does not appear interested in interacting. Due to his various attempts at biting, Yankee must be placed with a New Hope partner. He would benefit from a home that is calm, quiet, and structured without a lot of fast and sudden movement. Look: 5. Dog growls Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Yankee is tolerant of male and female dogs but does not appear interested in interacting.
