04/06/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
On 3/30/2015 Bugzy came to us as a stray via NYPD. The Assistant’s observations: friendly and walks well to the assessment area. During the assessment Bugzy appeared friendly, but distracted (throughout the assessment) by other stimuli inside and outside the assessment area. He allowed the Assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items and accepted handling well. During the “tag” (play) assessment item Bugzy followed but appeared unresponsive to the game. When pushed away by the assess-a-hand Bugzy lifted his head from the food bowl. No other behavior issues; on aggression noted. Bugzy’s distracted behavior is most likely due to the assessment area’s location outdoors. It is the recommendation of the behavior department Bugzy may be adopted by an average owner who will provide Bugzy with stimulation in the form of daily walks. Helper: A1031726 Look: 1. Dog holds gaze for three seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft; loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor. He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds Food: 1. Dog lifts head and ceases eating when you reach to pull the bowl away or push him out. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy Rawhide: 1. Minimal interest in rawhide Dog-dog: 1. Dog approaches the helper dog, loose body, not playful. 4/9 update: additional dog-dog interactions have shown that Bugzy may not be comfortable around all other dogs. In at least one situation he became tense, weight forward, ears back, and remained tense at close proximity. Please note that these are two brief glimpses of behavior and we cannot draw any conclusions, but we recommend slow introductions to other dogs while this behavior is investigated.
