When off leash at the Care Center, Gelato displays sexually motivated behavior in a group setting. He listens to handler interruptions, and explores the pens. Gelato was surrender as a stray so his past behavior with other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Gelato be placed in a home with resident dogs that are tolerant of his sexually motivated behavior and match his calm sociability.

ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Gelato 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.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
