Ziggie was difficult to remove from his kennel showing teeth, growling and lunges at the rope. Once he was out of the kennel he walks calmly on leash. Ziggie was uncomfortable with handling; he stands tall, and tries to look large he expose his front teeth and growls to the assessor during the look item. The behavior team decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Ziggie was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. He approaches the helper dog with his tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip long.
The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home.
