Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Grizzly was brought into the care center as a stray, but lived with his finder for 2 weeks. The finder stated Grizzle lived with children ages 5 and 14, and was reported to be very respectful with the children and played gently with them. Around dogs the finder stated he is playful, and Grizzly was best described as playful, affectionate, and attention seeking. It was mentioned that when pushed off the furniture, Grizzly becomes tense and stays in his spot but he will eventually move and does not escalate. At intake it was noted that grizzly jumped up to great counselor and was very excitable. He allowed all handling and a counselor was able to easily collar him. During SAFER Grizzly had a relaxed body posture with a wagging tail when interacting with the assessor, and he allowed the assessor to conduct all handling items without issue. He was distracted by objects in the room during the tag interaction, and was a bit resistant when pushed out of the food bowl, but his body was soft and after a bit of pressure was applied to his cheek, he lifted his head and allowed the assessor to remove the food without issue. Grizzly was easy to handle when engaged with the rawhide item, and only showed minimal interest in the toys. Grizzly appears to be social and did not exhibit any behavior concerns at the time of assessment, so the department feels Grizzly can be suitable for an “Average” experienced adopter. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (needed coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Food: 2. Dog follows the dish with his tail down, body soft. Dog lifts head after a bit of pressure from hand to cheek. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in Toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Rawhide: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish rawhide to you.
