03/23/17 15:49 Basic Info: Siya is a 3 year old pit bull terrier mix. Her previous owner got her as a gift and has had her since a puppy. Owner surrendered the dog because of behaviors displayed in the home. Siya has had ear mites but Siya has no current medical issues. Socialization: Around strangers Siya is described as protective of the home and her owner. She will hard bark, growl and may bite people entering the home but none of the bites have broken the skin. She has been living with 4 young children. The children are the ages from 4-17.Owner stated that Siya would sit in front of the children when they would eat and she would growl and air snap until they gave her food. This would result in the children having to give her food to get her to stop. Owner had another dog in the home which is a Chihuahua and stated that they got along fine together. Siya has never spent time around cats and will hard bark and growl at other dog she sees when being walked on a leash by her owner. Owner also states that she does not allow her children to play with Siya because she plays very rough. Behavior: Owner states that Siya is hard to control when on a leash and will pull very hard. Siya will also chew up shoes, kid’s toys, garbage and other house hold items if left around. During thunder storms and fireworks Siya will become nervous and go hide. Siya is not bothered by being held or restrained, being pushed or pulled off furniture, or being disturbed while she is sleeping. Siya will hard bark and growl when someone unfamiliar comes to the house or in the yard For a new family to know: Siya is very much house broken and is used to being walked outside on a leash 3x a day. When Siya uses the bathroom outside she will go on the concrete. If Siya is let off the leash she will run away. The owner states that Siya eats Dry food and like dental chews and beef chews as a treat. She likes to play fetch her favorite toys are a ball and squeaky toys. Siya has been mostly kept indoors and likes to sleep on the sofa, crate or in her owners bed. Siya knows the sit come and down commands.

A volunteer writes: Sweet little Siya seems shy at first (shes very close to the ground with her short little legs and doesn’t love it when people approach her from above), but warms up very quickly and turns into the sweetest little sausage ball of love. Siya loves to jump all over you and give you kisses, and although she pulls a bit on the leash, she walks with such determination that I can’t help but feel she’s on an important mission that I shouldn’t get in the way of. Sniffing a trashcan? Investigating a crowd of pigeons? Siya is on the trail! This pretty little lady seems to be housetrained, is curious about other dogs, and is super affectionate. She’s going to make someone very very happy. Could it be you? Come and meet her at the Brooklyn ACC today!

CANINE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION for SIYA A1106887 KNOWN HISTORY: Full profile 3/23/17 Spayed female, Owner surrender (lived in previous home for 3 years) Previously lived with: Adults, four children (ages 4-17), and another dog (Chihuahua) Behavior toward strangers: May growl, bark, lunge, and snap at people who visit the home Behavior toward children: Plays roughly, has snapped at the children in the home when they have food Behavior toward dogs: Tolerant of her housemate, barks and growls at dogs on leash Behavior toward cats: Unknown Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: Yes. Siya is reported to have bitten four times – a neighbor on the leg, a friend on the buttocks, a niece on the lip and one of the children in the face. None of these bites broke skin and all were treated with soap and water. We have no further information on any of these bites. Housetrained: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Other notes: Siya is reported to pull hard on leash. She also chews up household items (shoes, kids’ toys, and garbage). Siya’s previous owner would frequently yell at her to stop certain behaviors, and Siya responded to being yelled at by running and hiding in her crate. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 3/25/17 Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body, ears back, and lip licking. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 5. Dog lip curls. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: Siya was uncomfortable and tense. She allowed minimal handling before giving a warning signal (lip curl) that ended the handling assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: According to Siya’s previous owner, Siya lived with a Chihuahua, and ignore it. When she sees other dogs on walks, she begins to pull and hard bark at them. When off leash at the Care Center, Siya displays a soft body when greeting a novel male. She solicits play briefly with bows and small bounces, but becomes uncomfortable, displaying a tuck tail and wide eyes, when her play is reciprocated. She continues the session exploring the pen, occasionally checking on the other dog. Siya solicits play with bouncy bows and stop/starts when introduce to a novel female. She is tolerant of the female’s assertive behavior and attempts to continue the gentle play. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 3/23/17 Observed Behavior – Siya was quiet with muzzle on, ate food well, and allowed handling
RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13)– Due to how uncomfortable Siya is currently with touch and novel stimuli, as well as her bite history, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. _X_Place with a New Hope partner. We recommend ONLY force-free, reward-based training methods for Siya as more aversive techniques will likely increase fear and increase the risk of aggression. Siya responds with a high level of fear to being shouted at, so we recommend keeping voices low around her and making sure that yelling is not a method of correction used with her. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity- Siya is sensitive to touch and will lip curl/growl. We feel that placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification guidance in a stable home environment will best set Siya up for success in a future adoptive home. _X_ Destructive behavior- Siya is reported to show destructive behavior in the home, chewing on shoes and children’s toys. We are unaware of what, if any, attempts were made to remedy this behavior but we suggest to future adopters that Siya will need to be provided with physical and mental stimulation and with a variety of appropriate and engaging chew toys so she can engage in necessary chewing behavior without damage to human objects. The environment should be managed so that Siya does not have access to items she may inappropriately chew.
