Arabella came in as a stray so history is unknown.
She allowed for all handling by counselor, appeared a little nervous with a stiff body but loose tail.
Arabella was brought in as a stray so her behavior around other dogs is unknown.
9/10: When off leash at the Care Center, Arabella nervously greets the male helper dog with a stiff posture. She is social, checking in with him throughout the session and is tolerant of his face to face greetings.
9/11: Arabella greets another female dog today with a soft posture, exchanges face to face sniffs and then mostly keeps to herself the rest of the session.
