Buddy lives with 1 adult and 1 child. Owner reports that Buddy is overwhelming to the child and may bark towards her if she is eating and does not share with him. Buddy gets his exercise from leash walks and owner reports that when he encounters dogs he will bark, growl and lunge. When strangers approach he may be reactive with jumping and lunging but will growl as a warning first. Buddy has had trouble with his house breaking and may have accidents inside. If he sees cats he will attempt to give chase. When visitors come to the home he will alert the family with barking. Buddy is not tolerant of bathing or brushing. Buddy will guard his food toys and treats. He does not like to be bear hugged. When sleeping he can be easily startled and if he is on the bed and the owner tries to push him off he can be defensive. Buddy knows the commands sit and shake. He likes to play with tennis balls and sometimes plays fetch. When the owner is home he likes to stay by the door. When home alone he may bark. Buddy eats both wet and dry food. Upon intake Buddy was receptive to introduction and counselor was easily able to place kennel rope. Buddy was loose for most handling but gave a warning in the form of a growl when placing collar. Counselor was able to scan for microcip (positive) photograph and placed collar while engaging in petting which Buddy was more receptive to. Buddy was very insistent on leash but was also responsive to guidance. Buddy is very vocal.

09/19/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Buddy previously lived with 1 adult and a child. The owner stated Buddy attempted to bite the daughter when he gets agitated when she doesn’t share her food. The owner mentioned Buddy would react towards strangers but growling and lunging at them. It was also reported by the owner Buddy guards his food, toys and treats. At intake it was reported Buddy was vocal and growled towards the counselor, some handling was allowed at this moment. During SAFER Buddy came into the assessment room anxious and skittish, he was not interest with the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Buddy was distracted but not fearful during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Buddy freezes and growls on food item, he showed no interest in the toy item and on rawhide item he bit the assess-a-hand when attempting to remove the item away from him. 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. Follows at end of leash, body soft and a bit distracted. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Food: 4. Dog freezes and growls. Toy 1: No interest. Rawhide: 5. Dog attempts to bite. Dog-to-dog: When off leash with other dogs Buddy greets briefly but is more interested in exploring the yard. He will turn his head away when the helper dog attempts to interact.
