Summary: Cream came into the assessment room loose, and wiggly. She was social towards the assessor, and engaged in play with the toy. No concerns were seen during the handling assessment.
Summary (1): Cream’s owner reported that she has spent time in the home around a small dog. She was relaxed and affectionate when playing with the other dog.
5/21: When off leash at the Care Center, Cream initially is soft at the gate but quickly becomes over-aroused, lunging and barking at the novel male. An attempt to introduce them with her muzzled for safety was done, however her level of frustration and arousal continued to escalate and we abandoned the attempt.
5/22: Cream was muzzled with a basket muzzle for safety due to the behavior she displayed at the gate greet. She again rushes the gate. When we opened the gate, her leash was held for more control. She immediately approaches the other dog, oscillating between frantically trying to remove the muzzle and slapping at the other dog. Cream appears to have very coarse skills.
