Edgar Allen remains social and interactive with his caretakers outside the kennel; however, in the kennel he has shown some possible barrier reactivity that may escalate to injury, including snapping at and biting fingers through the bars of the kennel when he is overstimulated. We cannot be sure if the bite was intentional or accidental, and no aggressive behaviors have been seen outside the kennel; but this barrier reactivity does need to be considered. Edgar Allen has responded well to treat-based behavior modification to address this reactivity, but it has not entirely resolved. We recommend an experienced adopter prepared to provide any necessary training and/or behavior modification.
SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Edgar Allen came in as a stray so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Edgar Allen was energetic with loose body posture, he allowed all handling. During SAFER Edgar Allen came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, he was friendly, social and attention seeking towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Edgar joins the game during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Edgar was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Edgar Allen appears to be sociable, and did not display any behaviors concerns, so the department feels he can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his 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. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins.

PLAYGROUP: When off leash with other dogs, Edgar Allen is energetic and bouncy when interacting. He may become pushy but takes correction well. 10/24 update: Edgar Allen is social and greets both males and females politely. He is bouncy and may attempt to solicit play but does not actually engage in play.
