PLAYGROUP: Summary MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/08/16 During her initial exam Greta appeared to be very nervous, she growled and retreated. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) _X_No young children (under 5) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Greta has been observed to display fearful behavior during her stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Greta easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of her environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.)
