DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
2/1: When intorduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Bella-Ann mostly ignores the greeter dog. She offers correction for mounting.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 1/20/17
During her initial medical exam, Bella was very social and allowed all handling.
We have no history on Bella so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
