Lemongrass did not approach the assessor but allowed the assessor to approach him. He had a tense body throughout the assessment but allowed all handling.
When introduced off leash to dogs Lemongrass keeps mostly to self.
We have no history on Lemongrass so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a low level of activity.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE
(suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
TM - Treatable-Manageable
Recommendations: No young children (under 5)
No young children: Due to the behavior seen in the care center, we feel that Lemongrass may be intimidated by young children. He needs a slow approach and time to warm up. He should never be forced to interact with new people, and should be allowed to greet and initiate an interaction at his own pace. Older, gentle children should have an in-depth interaction prior to adoption.
Potential challenges: Fearful
Potential challenges comments:
Fearful: Lemongrass is fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Lemongrass the option to walk away from any social interaction. Lemongrass should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Lemongrass' choice to approach a new person or thing. Lemongrass would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
