Animal Profile


Hello, my name is Fanny. My animal id is #41114. I am a desexed female tan dog at the . The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 1 weeks old.

I came into the shelter as a agency on 10-Sep-2018.


Someone has already placed a deposit on me. I'm no longer available.

Fanny is at risk due to behavior, New Hope Only determination. She currently will attempt to snap during some handling and should go to a partner prepared to manage behaviors seen in care center. She has no medical concerns at this time and is apparently healthy.

You may know me from such films as...

Let's get to know each other a bit more...

Fanny walks to the best of her own drum and that's ok with me! Shy timid at first, Fanny seems like everything and everyone is brand new; a new noise and those airplane ears are forward, a new smell and her sweet little nose is to the ground. She starts feeling more comfortable and when her tail starts wagging my heart starts fluttering! She loves a game of chase and after playtime she sits quietly next to me, still not sure about cuddles. We go slow and after lots of sniff and getting to know each other, she lets me give her a scratch behind the ears, eyes closing. She inches closer and I know she just needs somebody to love her and show her she can trust them. Can you be that someone?

My medical notes are...

Details on my behavior are...

Behavior Condition: 2. Blue

Upon intake, Fanny was shy but walked and sat right next to client. She didn't take treat offered to her and had her tail between her legs the whole time.

Date of Intake: 9/10/2018

Date of intake:: 9/10/2018

Spay/Neuter status:: No

Means of surrender (length of time in previous home):: Stray

Date of assessment:: 9/12/2018

Summary:: Fanny has avoided handling at the care center and snapped when attempts to handle and leash her are made. Out of concern for her stress levels, she is not a good candidate for a handling assessment at this time.

Summary (1):: 9/11: When introduced off leash to dog, Fanny is fearful and corrects approach.

Date of intake:: 9/10/2018

Summary:: Tense, tucked tail

Date of initial:: 9/10/2018

Summary:: Tense, snapped

ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Fanny so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, she displays a medium level of activity.


Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

Recommendations:: No children (under 13),Place with a New Hope partner

Recommendations comments:: No children: Due to how uncomfortable Fanny is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time. Place with a New Hope partner: Fanny has not acclimated well to the kennel environment and has allowed only minimal handling since intake. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide any necessary behavior modification (force-free, positive reinforcement-based) and re-evaluate behavior in a stable home environment before placement into a permanent home.

Potential challenges: : Fearful/potential for defensive aggression

Potential challenges comments:: Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Fanny is very fearful at the care center and has snapped when handling attempts are made. It is important to always go slow and give Fanny the option to walk away from any social interaction. Fanny should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Fanny's choice to approach a new person or thing. Fanny would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.
