Summary: Milo was friendly and social towards the assessor, he displayed no behavioral concerns.
Milo did not live with any other dogs, and his previous owner states that Milo has no reaction when he sees other dogs on walks. When off leash with at the care center, Milo is nervous around other dogs but is showing increasingly sociability when interacting with calm male and female dogs. He is still slightly uncomfortable and will offer a lip curl with a long face to face greetings. The Behavior Department believes that Milo would be most comfortable as the only dog in the home, however a dog-dog interaction can be conducted to assess Milo’s comfort level.

12/6: Milo is initially nervous as he slowly greets a calm female dog. He displays a tense face and a lowered body. He is tolerant of the female’s face to face greets and becomes more social as the session continues, approaching the female to greet her.
12/7: In a group of calm male and female dogs, Milo is less nervous and is able to socialize with the other dogs. With a long face to face greeting, Milo offers a small lip curl and walks away.
12/8: Milo is still nervous, but engages in a short burst of gentle play.
12/9: Milo is playful but begins to persistently mount male and female dogs. He does not respond to handler interruptions or corrections from the other dogs. When another dog mounts him, he becomes nervous but does not offer correction.
12/10: Milo engages in gentle play when solicited by another playful dog. When a male persistently mounts, he becomes nervous. He lowers his body and displays a tense face.
