He ignores most corrections and interruptions, and needs to be separated. Earl was surrender as a stray so his past behavior with other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Earl be placed in home with resident dogs that are extremely tolerant of his sexually motivated behavior. Summary (2): 9/29: Earl is sexually motivated- persistently mounting the greeter. He engages in play with the goal to mount, and needs to be interrupted by handlers several times. He briefly wanders the pens, before attempting to mount the greeter again. Summary (3): 9/30: Earl continues to be sexually motivated, ignoring all corrections and interruptions. He was eventually separated by handlers. Date of intake: 1-Oct-2017 Summary: Friendly, loose, wiggly and allowed all handling Date of initial: 1-Oct-2017 Summary: Playful, wiggly, allowed all handling ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Earl so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm. BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
