Royce came in as a stray surrender, so his past behavior in a home is unknown. At intake Royce was reported to be calm and relaxed, allowing all handling. During SAFER Royce was very sociable towards the assessor, and greeted with a loose body and licked the assessor hands. Due to Royce’s medical condition “Paw squeeze” and “Tag” were not tested at this time, but Royce was tolerant of all other handling. He did show some concerns during the resources portion of the assessment; stiffing and growling while placing his body over the items when the assessor attempted to remove them. Royce was also stiff when approaching the helper dog during the dog-dog interaction. Royce is very sociable and attention seeking, but did show guarding behaviors on multiple items, so placement with a New Hope partner who is able to provide behavior modification work is recommended before placement into a permanent home.
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 a bit tense mouth closed, lip long, ears back, lip licks.
Food: 4. Dog freezes and growls.
Toy 1: 4. Dog freezes and growls.
Rawhide: 4. Dog freezes and growls.
Dog-dog: 3. Dog approaches the helper dog by rushing in with his tail high, stiff body, head tall, and ears erect.
Due to Royce’s medical condition he did not play off-leash. However, when greeting other dogs at the gate his body language indicated nervousness but polite greeting, and he seems tolerant and respectful.
