A volunteer writes: Look up ‘low rider’ in the dictionary and it will say Enchilada! He’s so low to the ground that steps are a problem and he needs to be carried up and down steps and in and out of his kennel. SO cute, this little guy. Hearts are all a flutter when he’s around as his wagging tail, fun and friendly personality are guaranteed to make you smile. It was hot and humid so tongues are out all over and Enchilada was no exception. Gently playful in group, he does a little running and then is happy to sit or lie down for some human time. Treats are graciously taken, small pieces please! and as new people come to the gate he waddles over to say hello. Our little social butterfly is looking for a new home with no steps, or humans who are willing to carry him up and down (he’s not light!). He’s beyond adorable, his wiggle butt moving him along as he meets and greets new people. He’ll wiggle his way into your heart, guaranteed!

Summary: Enchilada was social throughout his assessment and displayed no concerning behaviors.
DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT:
Enchilada is soft and playful when engaging with dogs in the care center. The behavior department recommends slow introductions between Enchilada and gently playful, respectful dogs.
5/18: When off leash with another dog, Enchilada engages in soft, gentle play.
5/19: Enchilada continues to engage in soft, gentle play with a social female dog.
During his initial medical exam, Enchilada allowed handling.
We have no history on Enchilada so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium level of activity.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
