A volunteer writes: So cute, so sweet, so snuggly, so fun, so friendly….need I go on? Jumping into my arms from her top kennel, as soon as I put Lexie down outside she pottied, and we’re off to the park. Her leash manners are great, she poses for pictures like a pro, executes a perfect sit for a treat sometimes doing a small little stand first (so cute!), and waited patiently as I talked to another volunteer and her dog. Lexie’s coat is clean and cared for, her little tail curls up into an O, she snuggled into my lap for some hugs after our photo shoot; she’s just simply delicious. On her first playdate she greeted the helper dog politely and enjoyed some play. When Lexie sees dogs on the street her O tail wags as it’s obvious she’d like to meet them all. An adorable little peanut who has it all going for her but a home, Lexie is hoping you’ll come in and meet her today.
KNOWN HISTORY: N/A
Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands each time without settling during three repetitions.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog repeatedly turns toward the Assessor’s hand, with loose body and open mouth, mouths the hand, but does not apply pressure.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) she is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1/2: 1. Dog gently pulls back her paw. Dog may lick hand.
Toy 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. Her body is between you and the toy, and she is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness.
Summary: Lexi was overexcited during handling, jumping up, mouthy (light) grabbing at the leash, and was hard to position
When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Lexi approaches and greets politely. She engages in play when solicited.
During her initial medical examination, Lexi readily allowed all handling without issue.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
