And they all come around eventually once out of the shelter…. it seriously is just a Chihuahua thing, you can NEVER make a behavior assessment of a Chihuahua based on how they act in a shelter. I can guarantee that he will be 100% fine once he is out of the shelter and feels safe and loved again in a familiar home environment. Just give him a chance, you'll see!

CANINE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION for Snoopy A1122916
KNOWN HISTORY 8/22/2017 Intact male, owner surrender
SAFER ASSESSMENT: 08/29/2017
Due to the fearful behavior displayed in shelter, Snoopy is not an appropriate candidate for an assessment at this time. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 08/23/2017 During his initial medical examination, Snoopy snapped. RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only _X_No children (under 13) _X_Place with a New Hope partner: Snoopy 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 Snoopy to acclimate comfortably to his new environment; force-free, reward based training only is advised when introducing Snoopy to new and unfamiliar situations. Consultation with a professional trainer/behaviorist is recommended for guidance to safely manage/modify any behavior Snoopy presents with outside of the care centers. Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression, so this is an established behavior that he offers when he feels threatened. Snoopy needs careful behavior modification and management. We recommend only force-free, reward-based training methods for Snoopy as more aversive techniques are likely to increase fear and increase the risk of aggression.

Just because a dog is not on Petharbor does not mean they are safe by any means. There are many reasons for this like a hold or an eval has not been conducted yet or the dog is rescue-only... the list goes on... Please, do share & apply to foster/adopt these pups as well until their thread is updated with their most current status. TY!
