Missy is a 10yr old spayed female Lasa-Poo that has no past or current medical issues that the owner is aware of. Missy is a sweet, chunky gal that came to us because her owner was evicted. Missy lived with a cat and gets along well with other dogs and children.
According to the owner Missy is very good when it comes to meeting new people and when interacting with them she is fine. She has been in the presence of children and interacts with them in a playful gentle manner. Missy gets along with other dogs (large & small) and she interacts with them in a playful manner. Missy lived with a cat and according to the owner they got along fine. They would even cuddle together. Missy has never bitten a person or another animal.
According to the owner Missy doesn’t have any guarding issues when it comes to food, treats, and toys. These items can be given and taken away with no problems. Missy is afraid when it comes to her taking a bath and she will struggle/try to flee while you bath her. When it comes to her having her coat brushed and having her nails trimmed Missy is fine.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Missy is described to be friendly, playful, affectionate, and excitable with low to medium activity level. When in the home Missy is the type of dog to follow you around seeking attention or be in the same room. She loves all types of dog toys and will play with just about anything. Missy is an indoor only dog that is mostly house trained and has accidents a few times a month according to the owner. She was given dry food and the brand the owner gave was Pedigree. When left alone in the home Missy is well behaved and this applies to her being left in the yard as well. For daily exercise Missy was taken on walk on a leash and let out into the yard.
Missy came into our center as an owner surrender citing housing issues. Owner reports Missy has been in the presence of children, playful and gentle. It is also reported Missy gets along with dogs of all sizes and has lived with a cat. Owner reports Missy is not bothered if anyone touches Food, Treats, Toys while she is eating. She is described as friendly, playful, and affectionate. Missy was friendly and allowed all handling during intake and her initial medical exam. She walked nicely on leash for her relief walk, no pulling. Missy held gaze for three full seconds during Look item, relaxed. She stood still and accepted the touch during Sensitivity item, body soft, tail wag. She did not follow at the end of the leash for Tag game, but approached at the end of game with coaxing, and body remained soft throughout entire item. She did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts. Missy showed no interest in Toy, though this may be due to environment as owner reports she loves all types of dog toys and will play with just about anything. Missy approached the helper dog at an appropriate pace, tail at spine level, not stiff. The Behavior Team feels Missy would do well in an Average home. She would benefit from regularly scheduled professional grooming appointments (approximately every 8-10 weeks) to avoid severe matting and keep her coat tangle free.
Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds.
Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is wagging. Dog’s mouth is closed for at least a portion of the assessment item.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, does not follow at end of leash, but approaches the Assessor at the end of the game with coaxing, body remains soft throughout.
Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. Her eyes are averted and her ears are relaxed.
Toy: 1. No interest.
Dog-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip neutral.
When off leash with other dogs, Missy does not engage in play but will often explore the yard with other dogs. She does not offer corrections and is tolerant of a sexually motivated male.
Missy continues to be tolerant of a sexually motivated male, and often stays by human handlers side.
