05/10/2017 WEB MEMO
A staff member writes: Jack takes treats very gently from my hand. He warms up to certain people and, when comfortable, can be quite friendly. Relaxed with one of the staff, Jack runs right to them, his tail wagging, and lies down with his legs stretched out and gives kisses. To those he is not comfortable with yet he can be fairly shy.
05/09/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Limited profile Date of intake 5/2/2017 Unaltered, owner surrender (in previous home for 4 years) Previously lived with: dogs and children Behavior toward strangers: Barks and growls, has snapped Behavior toward children: Got along with the resident children Behavior toward dogs: Tolerant but may snap, mostly the resident dogs were kept separate Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: Yes, food but not toys Bite history: Yes, no details given Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Playful, very active Other notes: Jack knows the cue ‘sit’ in Spanish and English. SAFER ASSESSMENT: Date of assessment 5/9/2017 Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body not stiff, tail above spine level, ears forward. Summary: Jack did not readily approach or maintain any proximity to the assessor. He was briefly curious and would approach to sniff, but moved away whenever the assessor tried to initiate contact. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial 5/2/2017 During his initial medical exam, Jack was growling but allowed slow handling. ENERGY LEVEL: In the care center, Jack has displayed a medium level of activity. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training techniques for Jack.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope only _X_Place with a New Hope partner – While Jack showed no issues with the resident children, he has shown a number of warning and distance-increasing behaviors. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Jack to acclimate comfortably to his new environment. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding – Jack should be left alone while eating and food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic I his future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Jack’s moth. He should be taught the cue ‘drop’ and trade up games. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression – Jack gives clear warnings when he is uncomfortable and does seem to choose to avoid or retreat when given the opportunity, but if prevented from moving away there is a potential to escalate t higher-level warning behaviors and possible fear-based aggression. It is important to move slowly with Jack and to allow Jack to initiate interactions with new people. He should never be forced to greet or to interact if he is not comfortable or soliciting attention. It should be noted Jack has become very comfortable with one staff member and will instantly soften, tail wag, solicit attention and allow all handling. _X_Kennel presence – At the care center, Jack has been observed to hard bark when in kennel. While we cannot be certain if this behavior will appear in any other contexts, in highly emotionally charged or stressful environments Jack may show behavior similar to what he is currently demonstrating in his kennel. We recommend potential adopters be comfortable managing this behavior and keeping themselves safe in any similar future situations.
