A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: ‘What’s not to love’, as my mother would ask. This adorably petite girl sits up front in her kennel, quietly calling attention to herself as she’s the one not barking. Easily leashed we’re quickly out the door so Ivory can go potty and then she wags her way down the street. Pulling on the leash a bit at first, we quickly find our stride in tandem as I watch Ivory wagging her tail at every human and every dog we pass. She’s adorable! It’s off leash that she shows off her adorable ‘sit’, and the best smile showcasing her tiny little cute teeth lined up like little chiclets! Not interested in toys at this time, Ivory would rather be in my lap giving me nibbly little kisses, or giving me a stand up hug. Ivory could stand to gain a few pounds in my opinion, more to fill out her gorgeous coat. Her accents are pink, nose, inside ears, around her eyes and she’s artistic perfection. Come meet our Ivory girl today.

Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, eyes are averted, and tail is in neutral position with a relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is likely closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.

Paw squeeze 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Eyes are averted and ears are relaxed or back.
Toy: 1. Minimal interest in toy, dog may smell or lick, then turns away.
Summary: Ivory quickly approached the assessor in the assessment room and sought attention, climbing into the assessor lap. She was social throughout and allowed all handling, displaying no concerning behaviors.
10/23: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog, Ivory is polite when greeting. When solicited with play, Ivory becomes overwhelmed and avoids this approach. When introduced to a calm, female dog, Ivory is more tolerant of polite greeting, but becomes uncomfortable with lingering face to face greeting.
Date of intake: 22-Oct-2017
Summary: Ivory had a loose body and allowed all handling.
Date of initial: 22-Oct-2017
Summary: Ivory allowed handling and sought attention.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Ivory so we cannot be certain of her behavior in a home environment. However, she is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: AVERAGE (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
