A volunteer writes: Wanna hear a secret? Only if you promise not to tell the other dogs……I have a crush on Domino……shhhhhhhhh. I met him first when he was in playgroup with two females and while he didn’t really engage he was respectful and quiet. It gave me a chance to notice how stunningly handsome he is – his coat is perfect, his weight is perfect, his smile is perfect and when he wags his tail he’s even more perfect! When he came over to greet me he weaved between my legs – his way of saying hello and that was the beginning of my crush. Alone in a pen I discovered that his most fun thing to do is play fetch! His eyes light up at the ball in my hand and he’s transformed into a tail waving sparkly eyed boy. He runs, he fetches and he brings it back right into my hand! Now, that’s a rockstar! After our game of fetch Dom and I head to the street where he shows off some housetraining skills and how nicely he walks on leash. He’s quiet, fun, friendly to all and easy peasy. Our behavior team thinks so too as they feel he’ll be a good fit in a home with average dog experience. We’ll send Domino home with a couple of tennis balls, so come meet him today.
Domino pulls a bit on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. Domino was a bit excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. He followed the assessor at the end of the leash with a calm and relaxed body language when playing tag. Domino took the toy away
with a soft body language. Domino did not show any concern during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that he can go to an Average home.
