Summary: Logan approached the assessor cautiously in the assessment room. When handling began, he attempted to move away from the assessor, eventually settling. He was fearful throughout, having a tense body and tucked tail.
Logan has opened up to greeting select calm dogs in the care center, initially displaying avoidant behavior. History around dogs is unknown due to arriving as a stray. The behavior department recommends slow introductions between Logan and respectful dogs.
10/17: When introduced off leash to a female dog Logan avoids interaction and wanders the pen.
10/18: Logan wanders the pen and does not interact with the female dog.
10/19: Logan greets calm male and female dogs then wanders the pen.
Date of initial: 17-Oct-2017
Summary: Logan was tense.
We have no history on Logan so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium level of activity.
EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Recommendations: No young children (under 5)
Recommendations comments: No young children: Due to the behavior seen in the care center, we feel that Logan may be intimidated by young children. He needs a slow approach and time to warm up. He should never be forced to interact with new people, and should be allowed to greet and initiate an interaction at his own pace.
Potential challenges: Fearful
Potential challenges comments:
Fearful: Logan is fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Logan the option to walk away from any social interaction. Logan should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Loganâ€™s choice to approach a new person or thing. Logan would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
