07/09/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Fudge came into the care center as a stray, so we do not have information on his behaviors in a home, but during his short stay with his finder, it was stated that he is a low energy dog and has allowed all handling. It was also stated that he did have weekly potty accidents inside the home. At intake Fudge was reported to allow all handling and was very easy to collar. During SAFER Fudge maintained a relaxed body posture when interacting with the assessor and allowed all handing items to be conducted without issue. Paw handling could not be fairly conducted due to Fudge’s age and medical condition, so flank squeeze was tested, and Fudge remained relaxed. During the resources portion of the assessment Fudge was easy to handle when engaged with the food item, and only showed minimal interest in the toys. When engaged with the rawhides, Fudge held a firm grip with a loose body posture, but did not relinquish the item. Fudge appears to be sociable and has not shown any behavioral concerns while in the care center, so the department feels Fudge can be suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. 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 open for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft Flank squeeze 1&2: 1. Dog does not respond at all. Food: 1. Dog lifts head and ceases eating when you reach to pull the bowl away or push him out. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Rawhide: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy or rawhide, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. Dog-dog: When off leash with other dogs, Fudge may greet the other dog briefly before wandering the yard.
