05/06/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Scooter previously lived with 2 seniors and has been exposed to a child at the age of 10. According to the owners Scooter has been reported to guard them as well as the 10 year old from unfamiliar people. Scooter hasn’t had off leash playtime with other dogs, but the owner stated when Scooter passes them on walks he pulls towards them with a loose body, appearing interested in interacting. It was noted that Scooter only allowed one of the house members to touch his food while eating, and only allowed that same house member to give him baths. Scooter was said to be an inside dog with a high activity level and will need additional housebreaking training. At intake it was noted that Scooter growled and lunged at the counselors, and was also reported to be intolerant of handling during his medical exam. During SAFER Scooter was cautious when approaching the assessor, and became uncomfortable with sudden movements. During the handling items Scooter had a stiff body posture, and during the tag interaction, he became stiff and bared his teeth. Due to this response no other handling items were attempted. Scooter also became stiff during the food item, and growled when being pushed out of the food bowl, but only showed minimal interest in the toys and rawhides. Due to the behaviors displayed during the assessment as well as the behaviors noted by the previous owner, the department feels placement with a New Hope partner that is able to provide behavior modification work is recommended before adoption into a permanent home.
