A volunteer writes: Introducing MISS CONGENIALITY 2016!!! An adorable, pretty, gentle, playful, affectionate, respectful and well behaved puppy is already stealing hearts of staff and volunteers. Quiet in her kennel, her tail starts to wag the moment I open her door. She goes potty the moment we’re on the street so may be housetrained, but as a puppy may also need some positive reinforcement in her new home. As we walk (she’s GREAT on leash) she looks up at every person we pass as if wondering if this could be her new person….she also then sits and watches them go looking over her shoulder – so beyond cute! We passed a group of men talking, and Ginny sat down near them as if saying, let’s eavesdrop on their conversation this could be good…..she just has the cutest way about her! Friendly to dogs of all sizes we meet in the park, she ignores a small yappy one, and appropriately greets a larger dog who wanted to meet her. Ginny sits when asked, in the splayed out cute way that puppies do, takes treats gently, and loves being on my lap for hugs and kisses. A total snuggle puppy! She’s an awesome little girl, looking for her happily ever after with a person or family who is ready to open their home and heart to a puppy and help usher her into the rock star adult dog she is destined to be.

Summary: Ginny displayed no behavioral concerns on her behavior assessment.
10/18: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Ginny is initially a bit nervous and takes time to become comfortable. Once acclimated, she engages in soft play with both male and female dogs. The behavior department recommends slow introductions between Ginny and other resident dogs in a future home, to allow Ginny time to become comofortable around them.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/17/2016
During her initial medical examination, Ginny readily allowed all handling without issue.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
