A volunteer writes:
Darling walks calmly on leash. She was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. Darling was calm and relaxed during handling. She followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. Darling was not interested in toys.
Darling did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that she can go to an Average home.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture.
Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, wagging tail, open mouth
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds.
Squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds
Toy 1: No interest.
Group 6/23: When off leash with other dogs, Darling offers brief polite sniffs, then wanders the yard to explore.
6/24 update: Darling greets both males and females politely but is more interested in exploring her surroundings. She is uncomfortable when solicited with play and will run away until the other dog ceases.
