During SAFER Chop came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, he was friendly and very friendly towards the assessor. He allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Chop follows with his body soft but mouths the leash and slowly de-escalates during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Chop was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Chop appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. Chop is reported to be chewing on furniture when left alone for long periods, so we advise future adopters to make sure to provide mentally and physically stimulating, appropriate chew toys to keep Chop occupied when left alone. The behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experience adopter. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture.
