INTAKE BEHAVIOR 8/18/17-Unknown
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 8/19/17: During her medical examination, Chanel was very sweet with a loose body posture, she allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Her previous owner reports a high activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner- Due to noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Chanel be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Chanel to acclimate comfortably to her new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Chanel to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Chanel presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Destructive behavior- Chanel is reported to show destructive behavior in the home, such as chewing on household items that’s on the floor. We are unaware of what, if any, attempts were made to remedy this behavior but we suggest to future adopters that Chanel will need to be provided with physical and mental stimulation and with a variety of appropriate and engaging chew toys so he can engage in necessary chewing behavior without damage to human objects. _X_Anxiety- Chanel has shown some signs of potential anxiety in the care center, vocalizing (whining, barking) continually through the SAFER and through play sessions outside. This behavior was not reported at intake, and we have no known history on Chanel, so we cannot be certain whether similar behavior will be seen in a future home environment. _X_Strength/leash pulling-Chanel is a large, strong dog with the capability to pull over an average adopter. Her adopter must be prepared and able to handle a dog of this size and strength. It is recommended that she be walked on a front clip harness or head halter, which helps diminish her strength through leverage, and that she be trained using positive reinforcement, reward based training to not pull on leash.

6/23: Lunesta is slightly nervous when greeting a novel female dogs, but becomes more relaxed and social as the session continues.
Difficult to handle.
Lunesta was wiggly. Not easy to handle. A little mouthy but not aggressive.
We have no history on Lunesta so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment.
Lunesta displayed high energy and movement throughout assessment.
We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
