10/19/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/19/16 18:31 Animal’s appearance – Dog appeared dirty, unkempt, and possibly matted. Unable to determine weight due to condition of fur. Animal’s demeanor with you – Dog did not allow any handling. Unable to scan for microchip due to dog growling and air snapping. Client stated that she has seen the dog wandering around for the past couple of days. She stated that she was feeding the dog but felt uncomfortable taking the dog in to her home because she has a pet cat and when her children attempted to approach the dog, the dog would air snap at them. The client was able to get a makeshift leash on the dog and coaxed it with food and put it into her car and brought it here because she didn’t like the idea of the dog continuing wandering the street.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A Unaltered, Stray Other notes: During intake, Denver did not allow any handling. Unable to scan for microchip due to dog growling and air snapping. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/25/2016 Look: 5. Tried to bite Toy: 1 No interest Dog-dog: 1 Body soft, tail at spine level Summary: Denver must be placed with a New Hope Rescue; Denver displayed no social behavior and was uncomfortable with all handling. PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/19/2016 Denver was very nervous and attempted to bite during her initial medical exam ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13)(See potential challenges) _X_Place with a New Hope partner (Denver has attempted to snap multiple times during her stay at our care centers, for this reason we believe Denver would benefit best from placement with a New Hope rescue group who can further assess this behavior in a stable environment.) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Denver has displayed fearful/defensive behavior during his stay at our care centers, tolerating very minimal handling; any form of direct touch may result in a fearful bite. It is recommended that Denver be allowed a proper time to decompress to aid in acclimating him to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Denver to new and unfamiliar situations.)
