Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Saphire is noted to be friendly with strangers and playful with children. She lived with a Pomeranian, and is also noted to get along well with cats. Saphire’s previous owner also notes that she does not like loud noises, arguing, or confrontation between humans. She is described as “friendly, affectionate, and playful.” Saphire has no bite history, but is noted to have an attack command. When demonstrated at intake, Saphire responded to the command by tensing up and shaking. Please note that at no point in the behavior evaluation was either of the attack triggers tested. Saphire has been easy to handle since intake. During her behavior evaluation she was social and attention-seeking, allowing all handling and frequently returning to the assessor in between items for attention. She engaged with the Assessor during Tag, and then sat at the Assessor’s feet when the game ended. Saphire followed the food bowl when it was moved, lifted her head with minimal pressure during the first cheek pass, and then lifted her head again as the Assessor approached for the second cheek pass. She was unconcerned when the bowl was removed. She engaged briefly with the toy and rawhide, and was not concerned when both were removed. Saphire approached the helper dog slowly and sniffed in greeting. Due to Saphire’s known history, we are recommending placement with a New Hope partner who can safely manage Saphire’s environment. Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions. Sensitivity: 1.
