A volunteer writes: You mean Brie like the cheese? Mushy, gushy and my favorite? Yes indeed, that Brie!! Sweet, bashful, loving Brie was our easiest and best date of the day. Taking care of her ‘business’ as we walked to the park, she’s so gentle on leash you could walk her with your pinky! She’s quiet and calm, happy to snuggle close to her person whether it’s on the bench or with me on the grass, Brie is easy tail wags and hugs. Shy for a nanosecond when we first meet, she’s then so delighted to be by my side making more friends and winning hearts all over. Ignoring other dogs that pass in the park, in her first playgroup she greets others politely and then keeps to herself. Soft stand up hugs demonstrate her affection as she allows petting and cuddles all over when I run my hands over her clean well groomed coat. Brie is the perfect companion with whom to share your secrets, exchange confidences and cuddle up on the couch with your favorite book or to watch your favorite TV show. She’d be mine in a heartbeat if I could, but she can be yours, lucky adopter, when you come to meet her. Do it today!

DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:

Upon intake, Brie was social and allowed handling.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 9/8/17
During her initial medical exam, Brie allowed all handling.
We have no history on Brie so we cannot be certain of his 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 his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below)
_X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Brie has been noted to become uncomfortable with handling at times, especially when a person is reaching over her. It is important to always go slow and give Brie the option to walk away from any social interaction. Brie should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Brie’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Brie may do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings.
