Summary: Hubble was social throughout his assessment and allowed all handling, seeking out attention. He did appear a bit anxious in the assessment room, whining and panting during the assessment.
Hubble has had limited interaction with dogs in the care center, but mostly has displayed intent on mounting during interactions. History is unknown due to Hubble arriving as a stray. The behavior department recommends slow introductions between Hubble and well socialized, tolerant dogs.INTAKE BEHAVIOR
Upon intake, Hubble allowed all handling.
During his initial medical exam, Hubble wagged his tail and sought attention.
We have no history on Hubble 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)
_X_ Anxiety: Hubble appeared a but anxious in the assessment room, whining and panting. It is unknown if this behavior will present in a home as we have no history of him in a home. If it does, positive reinforcement, reward based training should be used to give Hubble things to do (such as Kongs and puzzle toys). He should be given time to adjust to his new surroundings.
