Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bully came to us as an owner surrender on 11/18/15. It was reported by the owner that Bully is relaxed, playful, and respectful around children and the cat that he lived with. It was also reported that Bully is fearful of strangers and visitors. Bully can be seen with very tense and stiff body language while growling inside of the kennel, and will attempt to bite the leash when trying to remove him from the kennel. Once out of the kennel Bully did become more relaxed and was able to be walked without any concerning behavior. When entering the behavior room Bully has very fearful and tense body language, and will bark and whine in frustration at random points. He did not allow the assessor to conduct the Look test and would constantly shoulder rub the assessor with tense body language. He was very hard to position for the sensitivity test and showed some concerning behavior of freezing when touched. Due to this behavior the assessment was stopped for safety reasons and as to not increase the stress levels of Bully. Bully growled over the toy test when attempting to take it from him with the assess-a-hand but did not bite. The behavior department believes that Bully would do best with a rescue that can follow up on these behaviors and provide any necessary positive behavior modification before placement into a new home. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 5. Dog freezes. Toy 1: 4. Dog growls.
