Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zeus came to us as an owner surrender due to the owner’s landlord not allowing pets in her building. According to the owner Zeus is very friendly but plays rough with both adults and children. The owner stated that Zeus is not house trained and eliminates in the home daily. Since in the shelter environment it has been observed that Zeus has displayed some reactivity toward the slip lead. Zeus will repeatedly attempt to jump high and grab the slip lead with his mouth, and requires constant intervention as he will not de-escalate slowly. Zeus was easily taken out of his kennel and allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items. He was difficult to position and handle due to his high energy. During the tag interaction Zeus became very fixated on the slip lead and would mouth very strongly and attempt to bite up the slip lead at times. It took quite a bit of time for him to de-escalate and the slip lead had to be hidden from his vision so he would not react to it. Due to Zeus’s behaviors when on a slip lead we recommend Zeus go with a New Hope partner at this time. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog has high energy and movement but accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed for a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 4. Dog immediately begins to jump strongly and attempt to bite the leash. He becomes increasingly fixated on the leash, bites up the leash and takes a while to de-escalate. Dog is very difficult to handle during this item. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Toy: 1. Minimal interest. Dog smells, licks and mouths, then turns away. According to Zeus’s previous owner, Zeus has not been around any other dogs. When Zeus is off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Zeus is a bit unsure when greeting. He displays slightly stiff body posture and engages in novice, running play. He begins to listen to corrections for inappropriate play.
