Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rocky came into our center as an owner surrender citing landlord issues. It is reported Rocky has lived with children ranging from 4-15 years old and is described as respectful, relaxed and playful. Behavior around cats is unknown. Rocky is reportedly housetrained to use wee wee pads indoors. Rocky is described as a friendly, affectionate and playful dog who can be shy at first when meeting new people. Rocky was very uncomfortable upon intake and during his initial medical exam, attempting to bite. He bucked on the leash during his relief walk, but once inside the SAFER assessment area calmed down and allowed collaring/leashing. Rocky was stiff and fearful, trembling. When assessor attempted to position for Look item, Rocky crinkled his muzzle and slowly tried to bite (lightly). Due to this, the remaining tactile portions of the assessment were skipped. He showed no interest in Toy, though this may be due to environment as owner reports he enjoys stuffed animals and balls and can be found usually throwing them in the air to chase them or chasing them when a human throws them. Rocky does not approach the helper dog. Rocky is very fractious in his kennel, crouched in a corner and hesitant to allow leashing. Once leashed he jumps out when coaxed. Outside in the yard, Rocky explores and approaches when called. Once comfortable, allows petting all over. Rocky must be placed with a New Hope partner. He would do best with a very slow approach/slow introduction, as well as initially going home to a calm, quiet, structured environment so he can relax and warm up at his own pace. Look: 5. Dog crinkles muzzle, bares teeth, tries to bite (lightly/slowly). Toy 1: No interest. Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog.
