During SAFER Roxy came into the assessment room nervous and timid, she was not interested with the assessor, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Roxy freezes and lip curls at the assessor on the Look item. She displayed minimal interest with food and rawhide items, and no interest with toy item during this portion of the assessment. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Roxy approach the helper dog with her tail at spine and body relaxed. 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: 5. Dog freezes and lip curls.
