Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Basic Information: Annette is a small grey and white female dog that was found loose on the street and was brought to the ACC as a stray.
Previously lived with: Unknown information
How is this dog around strangers? When meeting the staff at the ACC for the first time Annette was shy for a few minutes but then she warmed up. She allowed the counselor to pick her up and pet her with no problems.
Behavior Notes: During intake Annette allowed the counselor to collar her and take her picture with no problems.
Details on my behavior are…

Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. Allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.

Paw squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pull back.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Summary: Annette displayed no concerning behavior during her assessment. She was relaxed and allowed all handling.
Summary (1): Annette was surrender as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown.
6/29- 7/1: When off leash at the Care Centers, Annette greets a group of calm male and female dogs with a neutral posture. She explores the yard, occasionally checking in with the group.
Date of intake: 28-Jun-2018
Summary: During intake Annette allowed all handling.
Date of initial: 29-Jun-2018
Summary: shy/timid, but warms up, and allowed most handling
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Annette so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. Annette displayed low energy and movement throughout assessment, and will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised.
