A volunteer writes: As my mother would say, “Now that’s a beautiful dog”….and indeed she is! Her rich caramel coat is stunning, her teeth a perfect little row of Chiclets, her weight is perfect for her size, and her eyes look like they’ve been made up by a make up artist. While her looks are stunning and sophisticated (she could grace the cover of Doggie Vogue), she’s all playful silly puppy, goofy, fun and funny with lots of bouncy energy. She loved playing with a toy and didn’t mind sharing it with me, joined me on the bench for some cuddle time and then flopped over for a belly rub!! Surrendered to our care due to “personal problems”, we’re told that she lived playfully and affectionately with an infant and a 4 year old, wanted to play with the resident cat (who didn’t want to play with her), doesn’t guard her stuff, is social and playful with strangers, is housetrained with both wee wee pads and going outside, and pulls on leash so should be walked with a harness (and perhaps have some leash training). Mesa play bowed to a little dog in an adjoining pen and in group play engages in typical puppy play, exuberantly soliciting play with paw slaps and mouthing. If an energetic, fun and lively companion who also loves to snuggle is who you’ve been looking for, Mesa cordially extends an invitation to come meet her today. Be prepared to play and snuggle, probably in that order. My mother would also say, “What a great dog!”
PROFILE: Basic information
Mesa was brought in as an owner’s surrender due to owner having personal problems. Owner has had Mesa since receiving her as a puppy from her previous owner. Owner says mesa does not have any injuries or health concerns, and was last seen by the vet in January at AC&C.

Mesa lived with a cat and owner says she is very playful despite the feelings not being mutual. Owner says there have been no past issues of Mesa biting anyone or another animal. Mesa is said to be unbothered if food is touched while eating, owner says she will not show any aggression but will try to continue eating. Mesa is friendly when her possessions are touched and if moved off of furniture. Mesa is said to be relaxed and unbothered if disturbed while sleeping. She is unbothered with nail trims, and becomes social and playful when someone unfamiliar approaches.
For a New Family to know
Mesa is described by owner as playful, excitable, and confident with a very-high activity level. When home she is normally following someone around, and is taken outside twice per day. She ate both wet and dry food in the Beneful brand. She is house-trained using both wee-wee pads and going outside. Mesa has been crate-trained, and owner says she does not like it but does fine with it. Mesa pulls very hard on leash and benefits from s Freedom Harness.
Behavior during intake
Mesa was very friendly during intake. She immediately attempted to jump in counselor’s lap, and allowed petting. Mesa accepted treats, and allowed all handling to be conducted. Mesa showed no signs of aggression during intake.
Messa came to us as an owner surrender on 4/14/16. According to the owner Mesa has lived with an infant and 4 year old child. She is reportedly very playful and affectionate towards them, and is very playful and friendly with strangers as well. She doesn’t mind when someone tries to touch her food or take away her treats or toys.
Messa had very high energy when entering the behavior room and had very loose and wiggly body language. She greeted the assessor by jumping up on him with this body language. Throughout the assessment Messa was jumping up on the assessor attempting to sit on his lap and would nudge the assessor with her head for rubs. She allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining very soft body language. She joined the assessor in play during the tag interaction, jumping up on the assessor a bit strongly throughout the item. Messa only displayed minimal interest in the toy item on this portion of the assessment. We believe that Messa can go to an adopter with an average amount of dog experience.
Look: 1. Dog leans forward or jumps up to lick the Assessor’s face with tail wagging, ears back and eyes averted.

Squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw.
