05/21/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Root Beer came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. Upon intake Root Beer was alert, excited and full of energy but he allowed all handling during the intake. During SAFER Root Beer came into the assessment room with high energy mouth open, sensitivity his body was soft with his tail down, tag-interaction he followed the assessor with soft body, when the first paw squeeze was attempted he didn’t respond on the second attempted he pulls back his paw gently. Food item he showed no interest, toy and rawhide item he takes away body between the item and the assessor. Throughout the assessment Root Beer attempts to exit the room between items. Appears to be a high-energy dog that will likely do best with an adopter prepared to provide mental and physical stimulation and appropriate outlets for his energy. The department feels Root Beer can go to an “experience” adopter. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, or low and a bit fearful. Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are back. Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Food : 1 No interest. Toy 1: 2.
