A volunteer writes:
Carla pulls a bit on the leash. She was calm and relaxed during handling and easily engages in play, body is loose and wiggly, mouth open. Carla took the toy away but had soft body language.
Carla was surrender to us. According to her previous owner around strangers Carla is friendly and outgoing. She’s lived with a 6 month old child and was gentle, exuberant & playful with them & with the adults in the home. She lived at home with 2 other dogs and played well with both of them. Carla doesn’t mind when someone takes his food, treat or toys. Carla did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an Average home.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture.
Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game.
Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw.
Toy 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Group: 8/11: When off leash with other dogs, Carla engages in exuberant play, running, wrestling, mouthing. The behavior team feels that Carla may be placed into a home with another social, playful dog. She lived with dogs in her previous owner with whom her owner cites that she was playful.
