Jean - 124870
Jean is affectionate once she knows you.
She can be nervous and will need time to adjust to a new place.
Jean is a 5 1/2 yr old spayed female Pit type dog, 46 lbs.
She is rescue only due to her dog reactivity, bite history, and being returned for male directed aggression.
She was returned on 2/24/19 for being aggressive towards the males; They had her for approximately 1 month; The form is posted below.
She was one of the dogs that participated in the Thanksgiving holiday sleepover; The host family wrote some notes about her and they are posted below.
The first adopter had her for 2 weeks and the surrender form is below as well; This is the first return; Reason for surrender was she bit.
Some information about when she bit/snapped at people: He was sitting on the couch with his girlfriend when the dog climbed up between them, then snapped at the girlfriend; He said the dog snapped at his male friend, then a friend's girlfriend (with treats involved); He said he had been letting the dog off leash in the fenced yard but she wasn't coming inside so he grabbed her collar, when she bit at his inner thigh; He said it scratched, but did not break skin.
Jean ended up back here due to her jumping the shorter part of the fencing in the yard while someone was watching her; Our warden picked her up and the adopter released her to us.
Dog interaction: 11/13 Approached l/r tail wagging, sniffed and allowed other dog to sniff, positive interest, no play, no aggression.
Dog interaction: 12/27 Significant decline in dog interaction- immediately lunged snarling and tried to bite other dogs face; Completed rest of interaction through barrier for safety and Jean was lunging snarling and actively trying to bite other dog through barrier, quickly became more amped up/reactive and frustrated, pacing up and down fence line; Other dog also became reactive so removed other dog, gave Jean time to relax and played with me, then brought out another dog; Dogs met through fence- Jean was overly focused, head low, tail wagging tightly, and once other dog moved away she began lunging and snarling; During previous stay would have in playgroup but in G/D groups and usually smaller groups as she could quickly escalate and over correct; Behavior seen today was much more forward than anything previously seen in our care.
Dog interaction in playgroup 12/30: She was brought into DPFL and overall did okay; No forward aggression like seen on retest; She was exuberant and trying to interact with both handlers in the yard; She did growl and snap at a couple dogs who were trying to engage her in play but took correction from me and never escalated; Would consider her dog SELECTIVE and may advise caution.
Dog interaction: 3/01 reactive to Dog during assessment; Little improvement from last stay.
She remains significantly amped up, snarling, and lunging at other Dogs in the ward; She is a redirect risk.
She can leave at any tim
