3/22: When introduced off leash to a female greeter dog LuckyDouglas completely ignores approach and keeps only to herself.
3/23: LuckyDouglas greets and keeps to herself afterward. She begins to engage in a bit of softer play when solicited. She offers a bit of correction when play intensifies.
3/24: Lucky Douglas has a soft body and will wag when dogs approach. She explores the yard otherwise.
During her initial medical exam, LuckyDouglas allowed all handling.
Her owner describes LuckyDouglas as having a medium energy level, which matches what we have seen in the care center. LuckyDouglas will benefit from daily mental/physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
_X_House soiling – LuckyDouglas’ owner reports she will whine when she needs to go out, and will only have accidents if she is not let out or walked afterward. She will benefit from regularly scheduled feedings and walking times, as well as responding to the whining cue.
