Cali’s previous owner reported that she gets along well with other dogs. During Cali’s initial stay at the Care Center, Cali was nervous, greeting a novel male dog briefly but mostly avoiding interactions as she paced around the yard. When off leash with dogs during her current stay at the Care Center, Cali greets a novel male dog nervously with a low, loose and wiggly body. She is nervous of high energy play but solicits and engages in gentler play. In a group of playful male and female dogs, Cali is nervous when the other dogs solicit play with her, displaying a low body, but is able to engage in gentle play and run on the outskirts of the playing dogs. She becomes more relaxed and confident as the session continues.
