SAFER: NEW HOPE ONLY
India previously lived with 1 adult and has been socialized with children other dogs. The owner stated India will interact with children and dogs in a gentle respectful and well behaved manner. The owner mentioned she is house trained, has a medium activity level and well behaved when home alone. The owner describes India as being playful, confident, excitable, affectionate, mellow, independent and friendly. It was reported by the owner India would bark and growl when strangers approach the family or home.
At intake was calm and interacted with the counselor, she allowed all handling. During SAFER India came into the assessment room nervous and fearful, not all handling items were able to be conducted as India bared her teeth and growls at the assessor on the sensitivity item. She displayed no interest in any of the resource items during this portion of the assessment. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time.
Food: 1.Inconclusive dog is not eating.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
PLAYGROUP: When off leash with other dogs India allows greeting but is more interested in exploring her surroundings. 8/28 update: India is uncomfortable with an energetic female but will offer correction when mounted. She will greet respectful dogs politely.
