Tamali came in as a stray, so her past behaviors in a home are unknown. At intake it was reported Tamali was shy but loose for all handling. During SAFER Tamali came into the assessment room loose and wiggly, she was shy but social towards the assessor, not all handling items were able to be conducted as Tamali tried to bite at the assessor on the first paw squeeze. She displayed no interest in any of the resource items during this portion of the assessment. When on leash for a dog interaction with another dog on leash Tamali approaches the helper dog with her body soft and tail at spine. 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.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Or dog indicates play with huffing, soft ‘popping’ of the body, etc. Dog jumps on Assessor once play begins.
Squeeze 1: 5. Dog tries to bite.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral.
