06/16/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cha Cha came to our center as a stray. Upon intake, she was slightly nervous but allowed all handling including scanning for microchip, collaring and picking up to place in cage.Cha Cha was nervous to come out of her kennel, backing away. Once leashed, she walked nicely for her relief walk, no pulling. In the SAFER area, Cha Cha was nervous and stayed in a corner, not wanting to approach. She allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, body trembling. She trembled during Sensitivity item, standing still and fearful, tail down, mouth closed. Cha Cha did not engage at all during Tag game, standing still and fearful, no response to each pass. She was uncomfortable during each Squeeze attempt at her front paw, but did not pull back. She stood still, whale eye, tail down, mouth closed. Cha Cha had no interest in Food, Toy, or Rawhide. During social time, Cha Cha is nervous and avoids other dogs and human handlers. Due to Cha Cha’s nervous and fearful behaviors, the Behavior Team feels she would do best with an Experienced adopter with No Young Children, with older children having an in-depth interaciton before consideration. She may do best in a calm, quiet, structured home where she can know what to expect and learn to relax in her new home. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body trembling and fearful, her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2.
