Summary:: 7/16: When introduced off leash to dogs guess is soft and gently playful. SECOND STAY: 8/8: Due to Guess' history with dogs in the home, he is muzzled for an off leash interaction. Guess was too concerned with removing the muzzle to engage with the helper dog. We then conducted an off leash with a realistic prop dog, in which Guess quickly ran to and jumped onto the dog. He then proceeded to hold the dog down.

Summary:: Loose body, allowed handling, reacted to a dog

ENERGY LEVEL:: We have no history on Guess so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.

BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION:: New Hope Only

Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

Recommendations:: No children (under 13),Single-pet home,Recommend no dog parks,Place with a New Hope partner

Recommendations comments:: Place with a New Hope partner: Due to the noted concerns of reactivity towards dogs displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends 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. No children: Due to the noted behavior concerns from the previous home, including resource guarding and extreme dog reactivity, we recommend an adult-only home. Single pet home/no dog parks: Due to history of reactivity and offensive behavior toward dogs, a single dog residence is recommended.
