PLAYGROUP: 12/3: When off leash with other dogs Monroe is fearful. She lies down in a corner throughout her interaction but will sniff dogs that approach her. 12/5: Monroe allows brief sniff from other dogs. Monroe otherwise trembles in one corner. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 12/3/16 During his initial medical exam Monroe appeared tense and nervous but allowed all handling. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) _X_No children (under 13) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Monroe has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Monroe easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.)
