10/22/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Milo was difficult to remove from his kennel showing teeth in the back of the kennel, his body looks hunched, with his tail held low or tucked between his rear legs and his ears flattened back on his skull. He might cower close to the ground. Once he was out of the kennel he walks with a low and fearful body language. During the look item he draws his lips back horizontally so that his lips are really tight at the commissure (the corners of the mouth). This posture is often indicative of a dog who’s feeling afraid. The behavior Team decides to skip the handling part of the assessment for safety reason. During the resources he was not interest in food, toys or rawhide. 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. Dog freezes Food: No interest. Toy: 1. No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest.
