Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Snow White is tense and fearful in the back of her kennel but approaches the front when coached and allows the handler to pick her up out of her kennel. She is very fearful and tense throughout the assessments but allows all handling to be completed. Snow White follows the assessor during tag with a soft body and seems to open up a bit but is still low and a bit fearful. She had no interest in food or toys and has minimal interest in rawhide. Snow White was surrendered to the care center due to personal reasons. Her previous owner reported that she is playful toward the Chihuahua she lived with but did not like other dogs. It was also reported that she does not like to be touch and prefers to be left alone. She did not show interest in food during the assessment, however, her previous owner reported that if her food bowl is touched, Snow White will growl and snap. The Behavior Department feels that Snow White would recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification to address this guarding behavior and can extensively counsel potential adopters before placement into a permanent home.
