Rex lived with 3 adults and teenagers ages 15 and 16 years old. The owner stated Rex nips, snaps, lunges and growls at the 15 year old more than anyone else in the household, and plays very rough.

He was said to have a very high activity level, and the owner describes Rex as pushy, excitable and fearful.

It was also mentioned that he destroys household items such as pillows, shoes, garbage and socks, and has a habit of licking sockets. Rex does not resource guard his food, toys, or treats from his owners, and it was stated that he is house trained. Upon intake it was noted that Rex was timid and had fearful body language, but when approached slowly he allowed all handling. During SAFER Rex was relaxed when greeting the assessor, and allowed most handling to be conducted without issue, but during the tag interaction, Rex became stiff, growled and lunged at the assessor. Due to this behavior and safety concerns, no other handling was attempted. During the resources portion of the assessment Rex became very stiff when pushed out of the food bowl. He only showed minimal interest for the toy items, and snapped at the assess-a-hand when the assessor attempted to remove the rawhide. Due to the behavior concerns displayed on SAFER as well as the behaviors seen in the previous home, the department recommends placement with a New Hope partner. Look: 2.
