09/21/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
09/21/15 16:55 Petey entered the care center as a stray found with a muzzle already on. When a person would walk by Petey or approached he had a low growl. Petey did stop growling and allowed a staff member to place a leash on him. When the staff member leashed him, Petey jumped on him with a slowly walking tail and stiff body (no growling). Petey allowed to be collared, scanned, and vaccinated without struggle or growling. He maintained a tense body but was sniffing around. When the counselor visited his kennel, she squatted next to his kennel and held her hand an inch from the kennel. Petey sniffed her hand and had a slow wagging tail. When she stood up so did Petey. The counselor opened the window and Petey held still for a picture and was trying to sniff the camera. When the counselor was walking away Petey began to bark.

09/24/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Petey came in as a stray so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. During SAFER Petey came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, he was friendly towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Petey joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Petey bit the assess-a-hand on food and rawhide items, then he freezes and guards the toy item. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food: 5. Dog tries to bite. Toy 1: 4. Dog freezes and guards. Rawhide: 5. Dog attempts to bite. Dog-to-dog: Due to Petey’s previous behaviors while socializing he is muzzled for this interaction. He continues to be sexually motivated and is forward upon introduction. When corrected he becomes stiff and freezes.
