08/06/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Kid-friendly, dog-friendly, gentle, playful, well trained and easy-going–this beautiful boy truly is the creme de la creme of dogs! Whether sitting up front wagging a happy tail for passing adopters or play-bowing in group to solicit the other pups, sweet Creme is the life of any party and wherever he goes, joy and laughter follow. He’s a genuine family dog who lived in relaxed harmony with two young kids aged 7 and 9 and his former owner left nothing but glowing comments about his playful, affectionate ways. Described as very loving, he enjoys being snuggled and kissed and gives back little kisses of his own and when people were at home he always liked to follow them around. Creme’s favorite game is tug but he’s happy to share and never ‘too much’ when pulling and he loves playing with all kinds of toys from stuffed to squeaky and even Frisbees! We’re told he’s crate trained and does well for up to 8 hours but always prefers to be socializing with his friends and if left alone in the yard he’s been known to make a break for the neighbors place so sturdy fences are a must in his new home. Creme has the high spirits you’d expect from any young guy but the kind of good manners and training that make him a joy to spend time with and he already knows commands for come, sit, stay and down and will follow them wonderfully, especially if there’s a treat waiting when he’s done. Energetic but not hyper and very eager to meet new friends of both the two and four-legged variety, Creme would fit into almost any social situation with ease and while he likes to keep the squirrels and pigeons on their toes, a walk through the park is a delight from both ends of the leash. According to his notes it seems the only thing that doesn’t bring a smile to Creme’s handsome face is bath time but hey, what kid actually wants to take a bath? He’s full of love, he’s aced his behavior assessment and now he’s ready to graduate from the Care Center to a brand new forever family so come meet your dream (or should that be dreme?) dog today, Creme will be waiting!

Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR
When off leash with other dogs, Creme greets politely. He offers a few play bows, then loses interest and roams. His owner reports he was only around other dogs as a puppy but has not interacted with dogs since then, so any in-home behaviors are unknown. The behavior department recommends a pre-adoption interaction before placing Creme into a home with other dogs.
