Summary: Nevada was social throughout his assessment and displayed no concerns.
During his initial medical examination, Nevada was friendly and allowed all handling.
We have no history on Nevada so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. However, he is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
