We all loved Dianna the first time she was with us, and are sad to see her back as her adopter is moving out of state where she is not welcome. We’re told that she’s playful, relaxed and tolerant around children, good with other dogs, likes to play with squeaky toys, and knows ‘sit’, ‘come’, ‘stay’ and ‘paw’. Dianna was sitting quietly in her arrival kennel, looking confused without her person, and perhaps thinking that this all looked too familiar. Wagging her tail as I unlatched her door, she was thrilled to come out to play. She’s a wiggle butt, happy little girl who loves a good butt scratch doing a butt scratch dance as I tickled her! She leans in for petting, thrilled to be close, happily giving and getting kisses. Petite, and beautifully taken care of, Dianna is a rockstar who again needs a new family or person… this time forever… she deserves it – she’s awesome. Come see for yourself.

Cuteness overload alert!!! Dianna’s such a perfect little love and she’s quickly won the hearts of staff and volunteers alike with her affectionate, playful personality and endearingly unique good looks. Friendly and open-hearted from the very moment she arrived, her adorable overbite (technically known as ‘parrot mouth’!) combined with those winsome chocolate drop eyes are a sure-fire way to get even the most macho of men to break into an ‘awwww’ when they meet her – no one can resist that sweet face for long! Dianna is still very much a puppy, full of joyful energy and with sooo much love to give she just can’t contain it all. In Dianna’s world there are no strangers, just friends she hasn’t yet met and she’s constantly giving out enthusiastic hugs and kisses and frantically wagging her tail for every dog who passes by. She seems to be very house trained, knows how to sit with one begging paw raised for treats and nibbles them ever so daintily from my hand. Dianna’s special mouth means that fetching a tennis ball is not quite going to happen (though she still tries, bless her) but she’s happy to dash off after a throw and then trot back to me in hopes of more. Playtime is anytime with this charming little scamp and you’ll never be short on smiles again once Dianna’s by your side, on your lap and pretty much all over you with cuddles! Neat, sweet and petite, there’s no one else quite like her and she’s already spayed and ready to go home with you immediately. Come and claim your lifetime supply of love today!

BEHAVIOR : AVERAGE HOME
Dianna was surrendered to the care center by her owners who described her as playful, pushy, confident, excitable, affectionate, and friendly. Dianna walked nicely on the leash and was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, low wag. Dianna’s previous owners noted that she had been around children from infants and older and was playful, relaxed, and tolerant of children and their play. According to her owners she is relaxed and playful around other dogs and is gentle during play with them. During the assessment, she did show some moderate mouthing and jumping on the Assessor during Tag but calmed easily once the game ended. Dianna also showed some concerns during food handling, ate faster, was stiff and very difficult to push out of the food bowl, but did not growl, snap or bite.
Although Dianna showed some concerns during the assessment, none of these concerns were raised while in a home with her previous owners. These behaviors may have developed in the shelter environment. The Behavior Department believes Dianna can go to an average home but it is important for a potential adopter to understand the concerns that arose during assessment are still relevant and should be monitored when in a home environment.
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, licks hands while lips are long.

Food: 3. Dog gulps food, begins to eat faster and with bigger bites, body stiff. She does not lift head when hand is applied to cheek on first attempt, but does lift with a bit of pressure on second attempt.
