12/07/2015 WEB MEMO
A staff member writes, Snork’s beauty and chill personality makes him a great best friend for anyone who would like to be lazy a few times a week. He will melt in your lap when you give him massages behind his ear, and wag his tail real fast as if he is saying thank you, when you give him treats. He appreciates every ounce of love you give him and would love to be the only pet that gets it.

Helper dog: A1055662 Snork came in as a stray, so his past behaviors in a home are unknown. The finder reported he found Snork and kept him for 1 night until he bit one of his co-workers on the leg, no further information was giving by the finder. During SAFER Snork came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, he was friendly and social towards the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Snork was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resources portion of the assessment Snork was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Due to Snork previous bite history, the behavior department feels he can be suitable for an experience adopter. Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted.

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Snork is tense and hard barks at the gate so he is muzzled. Once in the pen, he is sexually motivated, very focused on sniffing the helper dog. When the helper dog offers correction, Snork escalates by growling and jumping on her.
