|A2117081||Monday, 28 December, 2020||very very strong on leash
pulled the entire walk
after he went potty, he immediately got to excited and starting jumping very high, and then grabbed the leash
i started to wave leash in air so it would be harder for him to grab, he continued to do this for about 20feet
then just stopped and i was able to move him to 180
had trouble getting leash b/c he is so excited i got it back after it fell

|A2117081||Saturday, 02 January, 2021||Plato has a behavioral release for a reason. My first interaction with him was attempting to show him to a potential adopter today. After reading them all his notes and info, they still wanted to meet him. I proceeded with caution, figuring I would give him a try rather than telling them no. Before leashing him, he seemed excited and anxious to get out of the kennel, but did not show me teeth or growl. I leashed him and as soon as he left his run, he immediately began aggressively redirecting on my leash. I had to dodge my body out of the way of his bites and struggled to return him to his kennel. Once inside, I could not retrieve my leash. He got very aggressive when approaching him and even began to attack the leash hook, which became a stressful situation for the dog and for myself and helping staff. It took a staff member who he is familiar with to quickly go in, grab him by the collar and take off the leash. He requires heavy training and extreme caution when interacting with him. I do not feel comfortable handling him anymore.||Saturday, 02 January, 2021 5:56PM||Behavior|

|A2117081||Tuesday, 05 January, 2021||01/05/21 17:37 I cannot leash him at the kennel door, I have to nudge him with my knee to push him back to enter kennel. He is very anxious as he will jump the wall and myself until I can latch on to his collar and exit the kennel with him, even then he rushes towards the exit and tries to turn around and bite the leash. A shaker works fine to stop him, as when during a meet and greet when he still had his leash on, for safety percaution, he was playing with a couple and the man got him excited and Plato started biting the leash. A simple wack for the shaker immediately got his attention and he stop for the remaining meet and greet. Otherwise, when not focusing on dogs, Plato can be very playful chasing toy balls, attempting to catch them in the air, and teasing you as he runs around with the ball in his mouth occasionally shoving the toy in your side before running away. I don't see him as aggressive but I wouldn't put my fingers near his mouth, multiple toys of his liking is most I would recommend.||Tuesday, 05 January, 2021 5:59PM||Behavior|
|A2117081||Sunday, 10 January, 2021||handlers need to use water spray to keep him from getting.. (jumpy, hard to leash, plays tug a war w/ leash, or pull hard while walking)
i carried the spray bottle w/ me, never needing to use it, however i did show the sprayer to Plato and i think he understands not to behave negatively
once outside, i can pet him and he shows lots of affection, loves back rubs aways waggs tail
Plato needs more training, and a patient family (would not recommend small children)

|A2117081||Monday, 11 January, 2021||today i decided to have Plato in boneyard instead of walking
i noticed he was seen for a couple of families interested in adopting him
he was mostly very aloof with them, would run around most of the time ingnoring them
i tried to see if he played w/ toys, he did chase a tennis ball but quickly dropped it
he only wants to play w/ a rope toy, but i will not be doing this, because it will encourage his bad behavior w/ redirecting on leash
very treat motived
will sit and strong high five me
takes treats ok
other then the treats / and rope, he has no interest in me. doesnt let me pet him
Plato just kept pacing yard and completely ignoring me
getting him back on leash to go back inside was a bit of a challenge
i had to trick him w/ treats to leash him,
and to recover my leash back too. (i noticed he doesnt like my hand reaching over his head)
treats worked very well no issues
no aggressive behavior shown, but he is very aloof doesnt seem to be affectionate w/ people just enjoys yard time and treats||Monday, 11 January, 2021 2:54PM||Behavior|

|A2117081||Wednesday, 03 February, 2021||2/3 Plato seems to get extremely reactive to equipment in the kennel and is redirecting on the leash. I have walked him a few times before today and have had no issues. Today as I attempted to leash him to walk outside, he tried pushing through the door so i quickly leashed him and brought him out. Once he was out he immediately jumped up biting at the leash. I had to jump back for him to not get too close to me. As he went to charge at a dog through the fence, I pulled him into the main hallway and he began jumping up biting the leash again. I then walked down the hall to grab the shaker and he stopped. Outside he was fine, played with a few toys in the play yard. Once brought back in kennel, I reached to remove the leash and he began to whip his head. After the third attempt he growled so I used the shaker and he growled again. I then attemped to remove the leash with the hook, and he growled again. I came back after an hour and attempted the hook, he growled and bit the hook and pulled it into the cage with him. Mick was able to remove the leash without using the hook. co||Wednesday, 03 February, 2021 2:59PM||Behavior|

Plato continues to be a challenge to take out. He is wonderful once he is on the leash and outside, but he is quite different inside. It is difficult to leash him due to his reactive behavior, constantly jumping at the door and barking. On his way through the kennels, he attempts to fight every dog he passes. Returning him is difficult as well. I do not feel comfortable reaching for my leash to remove it, but he is extremely reactive to the leash hook and will attack it. It is best to either throw treats down to distract him, or to let the leash fall off by itself and come back later to retrieve it.

|A2117081||Sunday, 28 March, 2021||Meet Plato
3 Years Old. Weighs 64 Lbs.
Since arriving at our facilities as a stray, Plato has not been sheltering well. He is reactive in the kennels and attempts to reach for dogs as he is walked in/out. Plato is wonderful outside on his walks, he takes treats well, loves affection and back rubs. We are concerned that his reactive behavior with staff and with other dogs will not improve in a shelter environment, he needs a more suitable situation with a patient and dedicated owner.
If you can help Plato find a loving home, please contact us at Rescue@Broward.org
Each shelter pet is evaluated as an individual.
The nature and urgency of each pet's rescue plea is determined based on the current state of their health and behavior.

|A2117081||Saturday, 03 July, 2021||Plato isnt doing any better with redirecting on leash behavior.
in kennel he continues to jump when there is foot traffic, upsetting neighboring dogs, or just full on body slamming himself against the kennel door.
i've always been able to work around his redirecting on leash behavior, today was a bit more difficult.
after being outside a few minutes he started redirecting, jumping upward at leash towards my body. i had to verbally correct him and hold leash upright.
he also alligator rolled on floor and would kick me.
this process took a few more minutes until he finally stopped, and i was able to continue, now a short walk.
once he does calm down, he walks good on leash, still is housebroken, takes treats good, and gives great high fives.
he needs out of the shelter and training.
there is probably only 3 kennel staff members that are able to walk him, i will not be walking him again.||Saturday, 03 July, 2021 3:46PM||Behavior|
