Summary: Mia appeared fearful throughout her assessment, moving away from the assessor and tensing when handled. She snapped at the assessor between attempts at flank squeeze. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 7/11: When introduced off leash to dogs in the care center, Mia greets politely. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 7/10/17 During her initial medical exam Mia was tense but allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Mia’s previous owner described her as having a medium level of activity.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Due to the behavior seen in the care center, we feel that Mia may be intimidated by children. She needs a slow approach and time to warm up. She also has a history of resource guarding. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, the behavior department recommends Mia 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 Mia to acclimate comfortably to her new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Mia to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Mia presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Mia’s previous owner reported that she will growl, bark, and snap if her food is touched or if a treat or toy is taken from her. We recommend that Mia be left along while eating, and that food guarding behavior modification steps (available at ASPCApro.org) be utilized if this behavior is problematic in her future home. Nothing should ever be taken directly out of Mia’s mouth, and any time something is removed she should be rewarded with a high value treat or toy. She should be taught the “drop” cue and trade-up games. _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Mia snapped when during handling, showing discomfort with touch in certain areas. It is important to be cautious when handling her as we do not know where she may have sensitivities. Positive reinforcement, reward based training should be used to pair touch with good things such as food rewards in order to teach Mia to be more comfortable with this. _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Mia has snapped when afraid at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Mia the option to walk away from any social interaction. Mia should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Mia’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Mia would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.
