A volunteer writes: There’s nothing like starting my day with a perfect companion. Beyond adorable in her shiny black coat, her freckled face and matching paws are a designer’s dream! When she sits, her right front paw is in ‘first position’ if you know your ballet positions and it’s as cute as can be. Such a lady!! So quiet in her kennel politely waiting for her walk, she’s quiet and calm, sweet and low key with an easy tail wag that speaks of friendship and love. Ignoring other dogs we pass on our walk, in her first playgroup she seemed more comfortable with boys versus girls. Beware of treat thieves!! When I sat on the bench to take some notes, Charlotte nimbly hopped up, I thought to give me some kisses (that happened too!), but she stuck her nose in my bag for more treats. So cute and stealthy! She sits for them without being asked, takes them gently and, as I found out, likes them in small pieces. She’s a little doll, an easy companion, a bestie for life. Come meet her today.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth, high energy and movement, body wiggly.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, focused on other stimuli.
Squeeze 1/ 2: 1. Dog does not pull back paw, sniffs assessor’s hand
Toy 1. Dog playfully engages, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Summary: Charlotte displayed no concerning behavior during her assessment.
5/15: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog, Charlotte approaches and offers brief sniffs with a cautious body. She stiffens and growls when greeting another female dog through the fence.
5/16: Charlotte is cautious and a bit uncomfortable upon approach. She follows and seeks attention from the handler, and does not reciprocate play when solicited from the male helper dog.
5/18: Charlotte will greet the helper dog politely then she will wander the pen.
5/20-5/21: Charlotte engages in bouncy play with the male dog, occasionally vocalizing during play.
During her initial medical exam, Charlotte allowed all handling, playful and social.
We have no history on Charlotte so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. In the care center, Charlotte displays a high activity level. She will benefit fromdaily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend food puzzles and long lasting chews along with physical activity such as daily walks, runs, and play.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
