Darwin eats mainly table food. He is house trained and goes on cement. When left alone, he is anxious and whines. He does not know any commands. For exercise he would be walked on a leash.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE
Darwin was anxious and tense.
Darwin is fearful of the shelter environment he walks with a low and fearful body language. He was fearful and repeatedly attempted to get away from the handler during the assessment. Darwin was distracted with a fearful body language and focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He became uncomfortable during paw handling trying to bite the assessor’s hand. He was not interested in toys.
Darwin was surrender to us. According to his previous owner he been around children but he is tolerant but doesn’t play with them. The owner stated that Darwin had showed some guarding behavior when someone tries to touch his food”. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home.
