06/06/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
06/06/15 18:00 Starry Night is a tan and white American Pit Bull Terrier mix that has been wth her owner since she was a puppy. She was surrendered due to a change in the owern’s landlord policy on pets. Star lived with 5 adults and children, ages 2, 7, 9, and 11. She is relaxed and playful with all. She allows the little children to handle her and is very tolerant of them. She also lived with a cat that she tried to engage with, but is frequently smacked by the cat. After the cat smacks Star the cat will run and Star will usually not chase. The owner states she really wants to be invlolved with the cat. She meets does on walks and is loose and wiggly and will pull to smell them. Star is an inside dog with a very high activity level. The owner bathes her using buckets and she is tolerant of that, she will not tolerate a bath in the tub or sink. The owner frequently files her nail with a dog nail trimmer that spins. Star has not ever guarded her food bowl, toys, or bones. Star enjoys all doggie toys and does well in a crate over night. She will freely walk in and out of her crate. When left unattende, she will sometimes nibble on the wall (the owner thinks out of bordem). She sleeps in her crate, but the owner states if given the choice she’d sleep in the bed with her new human. At intake, Star was very loose and ran around the Admissions Office. She allowed all handling and was easy to collar and scan. When the owner exited the room, she began to whine.

06/09/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Star previously lived with adults and children, ages 2, 7, 9, and 11. She was reported to be relaxed and playful with everyone in the household and was tolerant of children handling her. She was also reported to be tolerant of the cat she lived with and appeared to be interested in dogs she’s seen on walks. It was mentioned that Starry Night will only allow baths when the owner uses buckets, and will not tolerate baths in the tub or sink. She was also reported to chew on the walls in the home when left unattended. At intake it was noted that Starry night was sociable and easy to handle. During SAFER Starry Night appeared to be head shy, and head flipped when movements were made too quickly around her head and neck. She did allow the assessor to conduct some handling, but became still and growled when the paw handling was attempted. Due to this behavior no other handling was attempted. During the resources portion of the assessment, Starry Night bit the assess-a-hand when pushed out of the food bowl. She only showed minimal interest in the toy items, and when the assessor attempted to remove the rawhide, she became stiff and held a firm grip while moving away from the assessor. Due to the concerns seen on SAFER the Department recommends 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. Look: 2. Dog’s eyes are averted. Her body posture is stiff and fearful; her tail is low and not moving. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is down, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears back. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 4. Dog growls. Food: 5. Dog bites assess-a-hand. Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog sniffs, then turns away. Rawhide: 3. Dog takes rawhide away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is stiff.
