He is described as very loyal to his owner and he is a very smart dog. Social Life and Personality: This dog is not good with children according to his last owner. He would growl and try to snap and kids when they got down in his face. Latte also does poorly with other dogs.

He had been on Prozac prior to coming into the shelter. He also does not do well with other dogs. He tends to be aggressive towards most dogs that he comes in contact with. Latte is very particular about who is allowed to touch his food bowl. He will growl if someone he is not comfortable touches his food. He doesn’t really like to be brushed. He really does not like to be brushed by someone he does not know. Latte had been going to a groomer for baths and nail trims. He was comfortable with the groomer so baths were not a problem. For a New Family to Know: Latte knows a few different commands. He can sit, stay, come and get down on command. He loves stuffed toys but the squeaky part has to be removed. Latte is afraid of the squeak. Latte loves a good game of tug of war. When nature calls, Latte runs for the grass. When his owner is home Latte like to stay right behind them.

08/18/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Latte was uncomfortable with handling; he stands tall, and tries to look large. He wrinkles his muzzle to expose his front teeth and preparing to lunge forward. We decided to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reasons. During the resources Latte was not interested in food, toys or rawhide. He approaches helper dog, body is tense, ears erect and high tail wag. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 5. tries to bite. Food: 1. No interest. Toy 1: No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog-dog: 3. Dog approaches the helper dog with his tail high, stiff body, head tall, and ears erect. Helper: A1047680
