A volunteer writes: Do you not just want to schmush that face and run your hands up her ears? Isn’t this the cutest face ever? To me, her slightly square jaw hints to a boxer in her ancestry, but she’s not telling so we’ll never know. She’s a gorgeous cinnamon color (of course), her weight is perfect for her size, she seems to be housetrained, and her leash manners are good until she gets a whiff of the next great scent to be investigated which requires a quick pull to get there. Cinnamon wags her tail at everyone, thinks the squirrels in the park are there for her amusement and would love to catch one, and poses for the camera like a pro. As soon as she sees my hand go for my treats she gives me a perfect sit, and I have never ever had a dog take a treat as gently as she does. It’s like a whisper on my fingers….Up on the bench for some kisses, I get a good face wash before we head back inside. I loved my time with this gorgeous girl and I hated bringing her back to her kennel as much as she hated going in. I promised her we’d find her a new person or family to love, so please help me make my promise to this sweetheart of a dog come true.
She’s smart, she listens, and she’s ready to steal your heart as she stole mine.

Squeeze 2: 2. Dog gently places her open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure.
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.
Summary: Cinnamon was overexcited during handling, jumping up, mouthy (moderate) grabbing at the leash, and was hard to position.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
[10-14-16] During her initial medical examination, Cinnamon shows some high energy and was more interested in the surroundings.
ENERGY LEVEL: Cinnamon’s energy level has been quite high in the care center. She is an exuberant young dog who will likely need considerable daily mental and physical exercise and guidance to learn how to appropriately greet and interact with her humans. She needs to be provided with appropriate outlets for her energy. In addition to exercise we recommend long-lasting chews and feeding with puzzle toys rather than out of a bowl.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of experience)
