04/17/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
April was brought in as a stray surrender, so her past behavior in a home is unknown. At intake it was noted that April was panting heavily throughout the intake, and made several attempts to flee from the room. During SAFER April displayed similar behaviors seen during intake. She was panting and was in constant movement, but once relaxed she allowed the assessor to conduct all items without issue. She was fearful during the tag interaction and attempted to exit the room, and only showed minimal interest in the resource items. April appears to be uncomfortable when interacting with human handlers, and did need a great deal of coaxing in addition to a slow approach for her to become comfortable with the assessor, so the department feels April would be best suited for an experienced adopter that can slowly introduce April into her new home and allow her time to adjust at her own pace. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is between her legs, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears back. Tag: 3. Dog repeatedly turns quickly away when touched, and repeatedly tries to exit. Dog is crouching, tail is tucked, mouth closed, body stiff. Squeeze 1 & 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back. Food: Inconclusive, dog is not eating. Toy: 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, April is nervous with a tucked tail when initially in the yard. She is tolerant when greeted and will approach the other dog to greet. After a bit of time, she wanders the yard with tail untucked
