Mia is enthusiastic, social dog.
Mia will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
_x_Recommend no dog parks: Due to Mia’s previous guardian reporting that she does not get along with other dogs, the Behavior Department recommends that she be socialized in a more controlled setting until her behavior towards other dogs can be further addressed.
Destructive behavior: Mia is reported to show destructive behavior in the home, such as rummaging through the trash, and chewing on shoes. We are unaware of what, if any, attempts were made to remedy this behavior but we suggest to future adopters that Mia will need to be provided with physical and mental stimulation and with a variety of appropriate and engaging chew toys so she can engage in necessary chewing behavior without damage to human objects.
