For a New Family to Know
Owner described Ariana as friendly affectionate and excitable. She likes to play with balls, stuffed and chew toys. When at home she will follow her owner around. She has been kept mostly indoors and eats dry food. Ariana is house trained and will use the bathroom on the grass or cement. When left alone she is well behaved. She has never been left in the yard so it is unknown how she will react. She has been crated before and does well for up to 6-8 hours. She is used to brisk walks on the leash. When off the leash she will stay by your side.
During intake Ariana was jumping on the counselor and trying to mouth her hand. When putting the leash on Ariana she became exuberant and was bitting the rope. She was redirected by the counselor with a chew bone.

PLAY GROUP: Ariana was brought in as a stray so her behavior around other dogs is unknown.

Date of intake: 6-Oct-2017
Date of initial: 8-Oct-2017
Summary: Friendly, energetic and allows all handling.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Recommendations: No young children (under 5)
Potential challenges: Mouthiness/poor bite inhibition
Potential challenges comments: Ariana has shown some mouthiness in the home/care center. Moderate pressure is applied, and this is a behavior that should be extinguished through training, alternate behaviors, and lack of reward. (ex. walking away whenever Ariana’s teeth make contact with skin). We recommend never playing with bare hands-always with a toy. Ariana should be rewarded with attention and treats when she stops and/or when she is seeking attention in alternate ways.
