06/25/17 08:30 Dotty is an 8 year old medium sized female dog. She was a gift to the owner and he has had her for 8 years. The main reason for surrendering Dotty is due to her unmanagable allergies and skin condition. She suffers from enviromental allergies. Around strangers, she can be very friendly and outgoing or she can be shy; owner states she picks and chooses people. She has lived with a young child her whole life and the child currently is 7 years old. SHe is very friendly and respectful of her. She plays gently with both adults and children. She has lived with both small and large dogs and was reported to be relaxed of them. Her owner states however, she will bark at dogs on her walks. She has not spent time with cats so her behavior with them is unknown. She has not bitten a person or animal. Her owner reports she has no behavioral problems at home. During thunderstorms or fireworks, she is not bothered. Her owner states that she is not bothered by having her food bowl touched, removing items from her mouth, bathing her, trimming her nails, or touching her paws. She may bark at strangers that approach her. Dotty is described as a friendly dog with low energy. She mostly enjoys spending time sleeping or going for slow walks. She tends to greet her owner at the door when he arrives and does not play with toys or plays games. She eats dry food only. She is well behaved when left alone in the house and has not been crate trained. She loves slow walks and when left off leash, she tends to wander off but comes when called.

When off leash at the Care Center, Dotty briefly greets both male and female dogs with a soft body. She explores her surroundings, mostly keeping to herself. When the other dog continues to greet her face to face, she offers an appropriate warning (low growl) before moving away. INTAKE BEHAVIOR 6/25/17 Unknown MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 6/25/17 ENERGY LEVEL: His previous owner reports a low activity level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. Dotty displayed low energy and movement throughout assessment. Dotty will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the (behaviors outlined below). _X_No young children (under 5)-While Dotty lived with children previously, she has shown considerable fear of strangers and interaction avoidance in the care center. We feel she may be intimidated by very young children. We recommend adopters prepared to go slowly with Dotty and allow him to warm up to her new home and new family at his own pace.
Potential challenges: _X_Fearful- Dotty takes some time to warm up to new people, though she shows good coping skills when uncomfortable. Her previous owner also notes that she is a bit shy. We feel she will do best with an adopter prepared to allow her to warm up to new people and new environments slowly. Use of treats and other rewards will help to make new experiences positive.
