10/23/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Maui came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Maui was exuberant for introduction and was loose for all handling. During SAFER Maui came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, he was friendly and social towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Maui follows the handler with his body soft, mouths the leash but drops it when game is finish during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Maui was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Maui can be a bit fearful and head shy at times. In addition, we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Maui be given the opportunity to interact at his own pace. The behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experience adopter. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. His body posture is tense and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body tense, mouth closed.

10/21/2015 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION
Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
Maui greets other dogs poliltely and may engage briefly in play with some dogs. He may become uncomfortable when mounted by another male. Based on his behavior during playgroup, the Behavior Department recommends that Maui can go to a home with a female dog and may be placed with another male dog but we recommend a through pre-adoption interaction be required. He seems to do well with non-playful dogs so we recommend he be placed with non-playful dogs or dogs with a more gentle playstyle. Maui greeted the helper dog politely but immediately raised his hackles and back away. He avoided further contact with the helper dog and explored his surroundings. 10/23 update: Maui greets the helper dog politely and engaged in brief bouts of running play when solicited. 10/24 update: Maui greets politely and seems interested but does not engage in play.
