DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Blinx was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Blinx displays soft body language when greeting male and female dogs. He solicits and engages in gentle play, taking appropriate play breaks. He offers a soft correction with high energy, body contact play, and continues to engage in gentler play. He may mount a male dog but is able to continue playing. His play becomes mouthy at times. The Behavior Department recommends that Blinx be placed in a home with resident dogs that match his play style or are tolerant of his play style.
