Carmelo show a bit of concern during the tag interaction he became a bit over arousal. The behavior department feels that he may do best with an experienced adopter who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification. We also recommend a home without young children; older children can be considered pending interaction.

When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Carmelo greets with a loose body and wagging tail. He sniffs and licks at the greeter dog’s rear, then otherwise roams. Carmelo arrived into our care as a stray, so there is no is no available history of previous interaction with other dogs, and it is unknown how his/her behavior will translate into a home setting. The behavior team feels that Carmelo could potentially be adopted to a home with another dog pending a successful pre adoption interaction and slow introductions.
