Summary: Charlie allowed all handling during his assessment, at times appeared neutral and a bit aloof. PLAYGROUP: Pending. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/26/2017 During his initial medical exam, Charlie allowed all handling, but growled during ear treatment. It should be noted Charlie has a mass in his ear and this reaction is likely due to pain or discomfort during treatment. ENERGY LEVEL: His owner describes Charlie as having a low activity level. In the care center, Charlie displays as playful (owner reports he enjoys toys) and having a low to medium activity level. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined below) _X_ No children (under 5):Charlie appears to become uncomfortable during up close handling on sensitive areas, and may easily startle due to vision impairment. We feel he may be intimidated by very young children. Potential challenges: _X_ Resource Guarding: Charlie became a bit stiff when playing with Toy, although it appears he is visually impaired and this may be a contributing factor. We cannot be certain whether any possessive behavior may appear in a home environment.
