SAFER: NEW HOPE ONLY
Scud came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake Scud was nervous and tense he became relaxed as time passed, he allowed all handling. When the ACO came the dog did snap, but it might have been because the ACO came up too fast. When attempting to take Scud out of his kennel he was lunging and snapping at the handler. When putting the leash on him he bared his teeth towards the handler. During SAFER Scud came into the assessment room calm but a bit fearful. He was social towards the assessor and allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Scud follows the handler but a bit fearful during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Scud was easy to handle when engaged with the items. During safer Scud had stiff and fearful body language and he was also uncomfortable throughout the assessment. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time.
