HUMBLE [email protected] ACC Humble Bee ID#98846, 2 years old, 46 lbs Medium Mixed Breed, TAN/WHITE unaltered female Came into shelter as a STRAY Zip Code: JAMAICA NY 11434 Medical Behavior Evaluation: 1. Green Behavior Rating: NH ONLY INTAKE DATE: 7/21/2020 PET PROFILE ASSESSMENT NOTES Date of assessment: 12-Aug-2020 BEHAVIOR: Summary: Humble Bee recently bit an unfamiliar person on the street. This person was walking towards her and she lunged and bit them on the hand without warning. Due to this history and escalating to biting without warning, she is not a candidate for handling assessment at this time. DOG-DOG: Summary: When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Humble Bee is highly reactive when greeting novel dogs. Humble Bee was surrendered as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown. Due to the reactivity displayed towards novel dogs while here at the Care Center, the Behavior Department recommends that Humble Bee be the only resident dog at this time. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Humble Bee associate dogs with things she enjoys like toys or treats. 7/23: When Humble Bee enters the play yard, she immediately becomes fixated and begins to whine when she sees a novel dog across the yard. Once collared and she enters the first pen and begins to screech and muzzle punch the gate as a novel male dog approaches. The male does not react, but Humble Bee races back and forth in front of the gate, hard barking, growling, and screeching. A handler walks the other dog away and Humble Bee briefly bites the gate and shakes it, before repeating the aforementioned behaviors. FUN FACTS: Summary (1): Humble knows certain cues such as 'sit.' INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Date of intake: 21-Jul-2020 Summary: Loose body, allowed handling MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Date of initial: 21-Jul-2020 Summary: Loose, calm, allowed handling ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Humble Bee so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. IN SHELTER OBSERVATIONS: During her stays at the care centers Humble Bee has appeared social with handlers, while appearing anxious on walks. It has been observed that when Humble Bee sees a dog on the other side of the street she will sometimes freeze and stare without vocalizing and is easily redirected while also being observed to pull, whine, and bark towards other dogs. She has also been observed to bark at noises outside the door when in the assessment room but can be called back using treats. BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: New Hope Only Recommendations: No children (under 13) Single-pet home Recommend no dog parks Place with a New Hope partner Recommendations comments: Single-pet home/Recommend no dog parks: Due to the concerning behaviors that Humble Bee has shown during playgroup (see DOG-DOG BEHAVIOR SUMMARY), we feel that Humble Bee should not visit dog parks and be the only resident dog. The Behavior Department recommends that she be socialized in a more controlled setting, under the supervision of a certified trainer or behaviorist. Reward-based, force-free training can be utilized to help Humble Bee associate dogs with things she enjoys like toys or treats. No children: Due to Humble Bee's bite to an unfamiliar person while walking on the street, we recommend an adult-only home. Place with a New Hope partner: Humble Bee recently bit an unfamiliar person on the street. This person was walking towards her and she lunged and bit them on the hand without warning. We recommend Humble Bee be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home where she can acclimate comfortably to her new environment. Force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Humble Bee to new and unfamiliar people and situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior she presents with outside of the care centers.
