Summary: Emerald showed NO concern during the behavior assessment.
10/19: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Emerald approaches and greets politely, engages very briefly in play- however does become overwhelmed when solicited with exuberant play in larger groups. The behavior department feels that Emerald would benefit from slow introductions with dogs in a future home.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/18/16
During his initial medical examination, Emerald readily allowed all handling without issue.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
