Charlie has been reported to have been socialized with people cats and dogs. The owner stated Charlie is playful, respectful, and tolerant of other cats and dogs. He was said to be tolerant around older children, but does not do well with children younger than 12 yrs. old. The owner also states Charlie will bark and growl if strangers approach his home or any of his family members. He was reported to be house trained and was said to have a high activity level. It was mentioned that Charlie does not like when anyone tries to take away his toys, and he will growl if you pace your hand by his food. Charlie also does not like grooming of any kind and the owner states he will growl bark or bite during the grooming process.
Upon intake Charlie was reported to appear nervous; barking, panting, and was in constant movement. Charlie was also reported to growl and bark when an attempt was made to collar him but he did allow the counselor to pet and collar him. During SAFER Charlie was not social and was more interested in his surroundings. He was not receptive to an approach from the assessor and lip curled when the assessor got too close. Due this response no handling items were attempted at this time. During the resources portion of the assessment Charlie was not interested in the food or rawhide items, and when an attempt was made to remove the toy Charlie became stiff while standing over the toy. During the dog-dog interaction Charlie approached the helper dog with his body not stiff, and appeared to be interested in interacting, but was not playful. Due to the behavior concerns seen in the home as well as SAFER the department recommends placement with a New Hope partner.
Food: No interest
Toy 1: 4. Dog freezes.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches the helper dog, body soft, tail well above spine level, ears forward.
