07/10/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Orion previously lived with 1 adult. The owner stated when Orion turned three months old he demonstrated reactive behavior towards both smaller animals and people. The owner mentioned Orion would lunge, growl, and bark at people and animals. The owner mentioned Orion has past bite history but hasn’t broke skin or drawn blood. It was reported Orion was nervous, barking, growling and would not stay in one spot for a long period of time, once his owner left he became calm and friendly upon intake. During SAFER Orion came into the assessment room nervous and skittish, he was not social towards the assessor, when the assessor coaxed Orion he approach the handler with low body posture and lip curled then he rolled over to his back. Not all handling items were able to be conducted at this time. He 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. No interest Toy 1: No interest. Rawhide: 1. No interest. Dog-to-dog: When off leash with other dogs Orion is initially a bit nervous but does warm up. He greets well and will solicit running play but may be conflicted as he will offer correction when the other dogs attempt to reciprocate.
