11/03/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: As far as we’re concerned, there could be no better house-warming present than this love bomb of a dog. Unfortunately, the person who had that exact experience-opening the door to his new home and finding that Hope had been left inside by the previous tenant-was unable to keep her, but he surrendered her with comments about her “kindness.” May we say that is the definition of understatement. This little black beauty has the pep of a puppy–she wants to play, play, play! so very sweetly–but the dignity of an adult, who is a dream on a leash, appears house trained, and is smart enough to find the nearest lap and move on in for some loving. Hope will win the lottery if she can find herself in a new home where she can actually stay, and it is safe to say that any family will win the canine version of Powerball to welcome Hope into theirs. As far as house-warming presents go, none could possibly be as warm-hearted and endlessly joyful as our dear Hope!

Summary: Amara showed NO concern during the behavior assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Tolerant: These dogs are typically non-reactive on leash and will be either friendly or indifferent off leash. They can typically tolerate some rude behavior from other dogs and can be described as having a long fuse. They show relaxed, appropriate, easy-going body language around others. PLAYGROUP: Hope plays exuberantly in short bursts with other dogs, offering correction when overwhelmed, or no longer wanting to engage. Based on observation made in our care, the behavior department recommends slow introductions between hope and resident dogs in a future home, to allow Hope time to become comfortable at her own pace. 10/30: Amara seeks handler attention. She briefly becomes interested in play, then ceases when solicited by a much more exuberant dog. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/29/16 During her initial medical examination, Amara readily allows all handling without issue.
