She sat next to the owner. She approached and sniffed counselor’s hand. She allowed being petted, collard and scanned. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/31/17 Very shy, trembling and tense. Muzzled for exam. Allowed all handling although struggled for parts of exam ENERGY LEVEL: Her previous owner reports a low activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced adopter, adult-only home. _X_No children (under 13): Brooklyn appears to easily startled and become uncomfortable with up close handling, for these reasons we advise against a home with children at this time.
Potential challenges: _X_Handling/touch sensitivity: Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn the option to walk away from any social interaction. Brooklyn should never be forced to approach anything that she is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Brooklyn’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Brooklyn may do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to her new surroundings. _X_Fearful: Though observed to be human-social, Brooklyn may need time to warm up to the handler as she initially presents as a fearful dog, avoiding contact, shying away from direct touch. We recommend allowing Brooklyn to interact at her own pace, force-free, rewarding based training is advised when introducing her to new/unfamiliar situations.
