Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rico came into the care center as a stray, so we do not have information on his behaviors in a previous home. At intake he was reported to appear friendly when greeting the counselor and was tolerant of collaring. When a counselor attempted to take his picture, he became fearful and hard barked, but when offered treats he calmed down. During SAFER Rico pulls hard on the leash and had a loose body posture and wagging tail when greeting the assessor, but he appeared to be more interested in his surroundings. He allowed most handling items to be conducted without issue but became stiff and lip curled when the paw handling item was attempted. During the resources portion of the assessment Rico was easy to handle when engaged with the food item, allowing the assessor to easily push him out of the food bowl. When engaged with the toys, his body was loose but held a firm grip and would not relinquish the toy to the assessor. When engaged with the rawhides Rico would not relinquish the item, and took the rawhide away with stiff body language. Due to the concerns seen on SAFER placement with a New Hope partner is recommended. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is down, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears back. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft Squeeze 1: 5. Dog freezes and lip curls Food: 1. Dog calmly allows the food to be moved, follows the dish, but does not interfere with the dish’s movement. Dog’s body is soft and loose, eyes soft, tail neutral. He lifts his head when hand is pushed against his cheek. Toy 1: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness.
