Misty was near the front of her kennel with her tail tucked and wagging between her legs. She had her head lowered and looked moderately fearful. She was easy to get on the rope and was led to the pens and then attached to a flat lead. While in the pens Misty wandered briefly before relieving herself. After that Misty spent the rest of the time socializing with me. She would sit on my lap and nuzzle into my chest while I was sitting down. She continued sitting next to me or on me for the next several minutes. I then led her back to her kennel which she entered without issue.
Misty greeted me with a soft body. She allowed me to place my rope on her and direct her to the play pens. She explored the area with a drag leash attached; relieving herself immediately. Misty and I began a game of fetch, she would approached me with the ball in her mouth, and relinquish it, and when asked. After a few minutes of fetch, Misty jumped towards me with a soft wiggly body, then lean on me when I began to pet her. She walked back to her kennel without an issue when her session was over. All staff members are allowed to walk Misty.
Misty continues to demonstrate the same friendly behaviors.
Misty had a soft wiggly body when I was standing in front of her kennel. She was easily roped, bowing her head and then pushing out of the kennel. Inside the yard Misty was exceptionally affectionate and social. She re-entered her kennel without issue.
