How often have we heard that one & how often was the pup juuuust fine once out...SERIOUSLY... For a New Family to Know: Chewy is described as an affectionate, playful, fun little guy. He could be found sleeping under the sons bed, was fed a dry whole hearted diet, was well-behaved when home alone & enjoyed slow walks around the neighborhood. He loves hanging out with bigger dogs, he himself is 27 lbs, & would do best in an adult-only home as he is a very energetic little gent as well.

Recommendations:: No children (under 13),Place with a New Hope partner. Recommendations comments:: New Hope Partner: Due to all noted concerns displayed in a home environment, the behavior department recommends Chewy be placed with a New Hope placement partner who is able to provide an experienced adult-only foster home. A period of decompression is recommended to allow Chewy to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Chewy to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Chewy presents with outside of the care centers. No Children:- Chewy has been extremely timid and tense while interacting during his time at the care center. This, in addition to his previous owner's notes that he barks at children, causes us to feel that Chewy will be most comfortable and most likely to thrive in an adult-only home.
Potential challenges: : Resource guarding/risk of future aggression. Potential challenges comments:: Risk of future aggression: Chewy gives clear warnings when he is uncomfortable and does seem to choose to avoid or retreat when given the opportunity, but if prevented from moving away there is a potential to escalate to higher-level warning behaviors and possible fear-based aggression. It is important to move slowly with Chewy, to build positive associations (treats/toys/praise), and to allow Chewy to initiate interactions with new people. He should never be forced to greet or to interact if he is not comfortable and soliciting attention. Resource guarding: Chewy is reported to growl and snap over food/toys. He should be left alone while eating, and should be taught the cue "drop" and other trade up games so Chewy learns that dropping food or having people around while he is eating is rewarding. Behavior modification protocols for food guarding behavior can be found on aspcapro.org
