Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sherry pulls a bit on leash. She was fearful and attempted to get away from the handler during some items of the assessment. Sherry was shy and nervous during handling, with fearful body language. She became very fearful while playing tag. Sherry was uncomfortable during the paw items flipping her head and moving away with a bit stiff body language we decided to do the flank and Sherry was a bit stiff and he moved away from the assessor. During the resources Sherry growled and bit the assess-a-hand during the food bowl test and snapped at the assess-a-hand during the toy and rawhide test. Sherry approaches the helper dog with his body not stiff, tail at spine level, lip long. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home.
