Candie came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Candie was nervous and growled at multiple people, she did allow all handling. During SAFER Candie came into the assessment room nervous and timid, she was social towards the assessor with a slow approach, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Candie attempt to bite at the assessor on the first paw squeeze item. She displayed no interest in any of the resource items during this portion of the assessment. 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’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is tense and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her 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 low and a bit fearful.
Squeeze 1: 5. Dog freezes and tries to bite.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Candie is tolerant of interaction but mostly keeps to herself.
When off leash with other dogs, Candie is tolerant of interacting and solicitation but mostly spends her time exploring her surroundings.
11/30 update: Candie greets the other dogs appropriately but spends most of the time exploring her surroundings. She does correct dogs for obnoxious behavior.
12/1 update: Candie is tolerant of interaction but mostly keeps to herself.
