During SAFER Spot came into the assessment room nervous, no handling items was conducted as Spot freezes and growls at the assessor when the assessor attempts to get close to him. During the resource portion of the assessment on food item he allowed the assessor to remove his head out of the food bowl with a bit of pressure applied to his cheek, toy and rawhide items he displayed no interest. 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. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek. Toy 1: No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest.
