Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. Allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.

Paw squeeze 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his/her paw.
Toy:1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. Dog does not place his/her body between you and the toy.
Summary:During the handling assessment Millie was playful, jumping on the assessor, and friendly. She displayed no behavior concerns.
Summary (1):Millie is social with both male and female dogs. She matches the energy of playful dogs, but can be somewhat pushy around nervous and calm dogs. She takes appropriate breaks between play session, and listens to handler interruptions. Millie was surrender as a stray so her past behavior with other dogs is unknown. The Behavior Department recommends that Millie be placed in a home with resident dogs that matches her play style.
2/1: When off leash at the Care Centers, Millie is soft and social with the novel male dog. She explores the pens most of her session, but she does offer a few paw slaps and muzzle licks when the other dog attempts to engage in play with her.
2/2: Due to Millie sociability, she was utilized as a greeter. She displays a soft, wiggly body with both male and female dogs but can be pushy with her attention getting behaviors; muzzle greeting and licking. She solicits play with quick stop/starts.
2/3- 2/7: Today, Millie engage in rough play with a variety of male dogs. She tolerates their body slams, and mouthiness, and reciprocates most of those behaviors. She is uncomfortable with an assertive female dog, and moves away from her.
