Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Milo came to us as an owner surrender due to the owner’s current living situations. According to the owner Milo has not lived or interacted with children but does not allow being pet by anyone. If unfamiliar people approach Milo he will attempt to snap or bite. The owner reported that Milo is very sensitive around his back and neck areas and will attempt to bite if touch in these places. Milo does have a previous bite history as well of biting two people though we do not have any information on how these bites occurred. The owner stated that Milo is reactive toward rawhides or bones and will become tense and growl if someone attempts to take these items from him. In the kennel Milo can be seen growling and hard barking at the handler when approached. He was reported to snap at the slip lead when attempting to put it on him when attempting to take it him from the kennel. While on leash Milo is very nervous and frantic in body movement. He maintains very high anxiety when entering the behavior room and head flips multiple times as the assessor attempts to collar him. As a result of this behavior the handling items were not performed due to safety and stress level concerns. Milo showed no interest in the toy item and approached the helper dog with confident body language during an on-leash dog interaction. Due to all concerning behavior observed in the shelter and by the owner we believe placement with a New hope partner is best at this time.
