MOST RECENT MEDICAL INFORMATION AND WEIGHT
02/01/2017 Exam Type BEHAVIORPART2 – Medical Rating is 1 – NORMAL , Behavior Rating is NH ONLY, Weight 51.8 LBS.
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13): Nena has been extremely timid and hesitant to interact during her time at the care center. This, in addition to her previous owner’s notes of unknown behavior around children, causes us to feel that Nena will be most comfortable and most likely to thrive in an adult-only home. _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the warning and distance-increasing behaviors shown in the care center, as well as Nena’s multiple bite history, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide force free behavior modification to address the biting and underlying anxiety Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Nena has been observed to display fearful behavior during her stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Nena easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised. _X_Multiple-bite history/risk of future aggression

Other notes: SAFER ASSESSMENT: 2/1/17 Summary: Nena appeared fearful upon entering the assessment room though solicited attention from assistant, allowing handling. When the assessor attempted to interact with Nena she accepted pets though lip-curled and froze when assistant handed the leash over. Due to the behaviors observed, and out of concern for her stress level, we do not feel it is appropriate to perform a handling assessment at this time. Please review the full owner surrender profile for information on Nena’s behavior in his previous home as a guideline. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Proximity Sensitive: These dogs have had a poor history of social experience with other dogs or could be extremely fearful in the shelter environment. They are socially shy and may exhibit fearful body posturing (tucked tail, head low, snarling etc), defensive posturing (lunging, barking, snarling etc.) or physically avoid/ignore other dogs. They will emit warning signals to the other dog to back away but if they are forced to interact they may snap. PLAYGROUP: Nena has displayed fearful and avoidant behavior during interaction with other dogs in the care center. Nena would benefit from being given an appropriate period of decompression before immediate introductions to unfamiliar dogs. Future introductions should be conducted slowly, on a one on one basis. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/29/17 During her initial medical exam Nena was very tense. ENERGY LEVEL:
