Behavior: New Hope Only
Jake came into the care center as a stray, so we do not have information on his past behaviors in a home. At intake he was reported to be fearful, but allowed staff to pick him up. During his medical exam it was noted that Jake would not allow any handling, and snapped at a technician. When entering the assessment room Jake maintained a low and fearful body posture and actively avoided the assessor. When the assessor attempted to approach Jake he would attempt to flee or would retreat into a corner. Due to this behavior and to avoid further stress for Jake, not handling items were attempted at this time. During the resources portion of the assessment Jake was not interested in any of the items, and during the dog-dog interaction, Jake did not approach the helper dog, and attempted to exit the room.
Jake has been showing fearful behavior and avoids interaction in the care center. We cannot be certain if behavior may be suppressed as a result of the shelter environment. Please note that behavior may change when Jake is more comfortable and settled in a home environment. The department recommends placement with a New Hope partner so this fearful behavior can be more fully explored before adoption into a permanent home.
Food: No interest
Toy 1: No interest.
Rawhide: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: 2. Dog does not approach the helper dog, and exits.
