Date of initial: 7-Feb-2018
Summary: Mr. Milo was active but allowed handling.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Mr. Milo so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium level of activity.
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: EXPERIENCE (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with the behaviors outlined below)
Potential challenges: Fearful
Potential challenges comments: Fearful: Mr. Milo is a bit fearful at the care center, especially with quick movements. It is important to always go slow and give Mr. Milo the option to walk away from any social interaction. Mr Milo should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Mr. Milo’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Mr. Milo would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.
