A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Up front in her kennel ready to make new friends, Liz is so ready for a walk. (Elizabeth seems far too stuffy and serious a name for this little imp who loves to run and play.) She jumps up for kisses, her tail never stops wagging, gets the zoomies in the back yard, loves love loves treats and even figured out how to unzip the zipper on a fellow volunteer’s pouch to get to her favorites. Smart girl! She’s a little brindle girl with a wide smile, posing seriously for pictures, and I won’t tell her that her little lip gets caught when she’s serious. Too cute! Liz loves attention, and when we came back upstairs she delighted in all the people around, flopping right over for a belly rub looking as cute as can be upside down. We think she could have stayed there forever as long as she had a willing belly rub buddy. They don’t come cuter than this little girl for whom an active, playful family will be ideal, as long as they also love to cuddle and give belly rubs. Ask to meet Elizabeth today; she’d love to make you hers!
Details on my behavior are…

Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft or squinty, soft and loose body, open mouth.

Paw squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Eyes are averted and ears are relaxed or back.
Toy: 1. Dog settles down close to chew, will relinquish toy to you.
Summary: Elizabeth was highly social during her assessment, remaining soft and attention seeking throughout; she displayed no concerns.
PLAY GROUP :
Due to concerning behavior observed when introduced to the helper dog (immediately rushing over, snapping toward), it is recommended Elizabeth be the only resident dog and be kept out of dog parks until this behavior can be assessed outside of the shelter environment.
3/20: Elizabeth displays a soft body and wagging tail when greeting the female helper dog. When introduced off leash, Elizabeth immediately rushes toward the helper while growling, and continues to vocalize while attempting to snap. Elizabeth is removed from the interaction.
3/24: Elizabeth greets a male dog through the fence with soft body. When introduced off leash she immediately rushes forward, jumps on his back, snaps and vocalizes.

Recommendations comments: Single pet/no dog parks: See DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT. Due to immediate escalation toward the helper dog, it is recommended Elizabeth be the only resident dog at this time
