SAFER: AVERAGE HOME:
Buddy was surrendered to the care center by his previous owner. He lived with three adults and three children. He is reported to be affectionate with strangers and gentle when he plays. He has not been exposed to other dogs and cats. He is described as friendly, affectionate, and mellow. He has been social and easy to handle since intake. During his SAFER assessment Buddy allowed all handling items without issue. He did not engage with the toy. With other dogs in playgroup, Buddy has been a bit nervous, greeting appropriately but offering back-off signals to dogs who remain close for too long.
We saw no concerns on Buddy’s SAFER assessment, so we feel his behavior is appropriate for an adopter with an average amount of experience.
