The Behavior Department recommends that Enoch be placed in a home with dogs that match his gentle play style and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. 10/15: Enoch greets the novel female dog displaying neutral body language. He mostly keeps to himself as he wanders in the pen.
