Polo previously lived with 3 adults. The owner stated when he sees stray cats on the street he shows interest by pulling and is very alert. The owner mentioned Polo is house broken and well behaved when home alone. It was reported by the owner Polo can be startled when being suddenly awoken from his sleep and Polo will tend to destroy plastic toys. At intake it was reported Polo was anxious and whining but friendly, he was loose for all handling. Polo has dermatitis around his neck and down his back which may be painful. During SAFER Polo came into the assessment room calm, he was social and allowed petting. When attempting to collar Polo, Polo became uncomfortable and frustrated very quickly trying to increase distance between the assessor and himself. In addition, to this Polo would become very focused on the assessor with uncomfortable and tense body language. Because of the inability to collar Polo and the behaviors displayed the behavior department was not able to conduct any items of the SAFER. This behavior can be result of Polo’s rash around his neck and should be healed before a re-SAFER is attempted. Polo should be placed with New Hope partner that can provide all the behavior modification necessary before placement into a permanent home. When off leash with other dogs, Polo allows greeting but seems a bit uncomfortable. After the initial greeting, he becomes immediately and intensely sexually motivated.
