Noah came right up to the counselor with a wagging tail and allowed to be scanned and collared with no problem.

Noah jumped right into the kennel and took treats gently from the counselor.
08/30/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Yes, he’s a ‘bruiser’, but a gentler, more fun big boy will be hard to find! Up front in his kennel as he saw me approach, his tail wags, his eyes twinkle and his smile promises I’m going to like him. And I do! Leashed easily, we make a beeline out the door where he goes potty immediately, looking up at me as he ‘goes’, and then sitting in front of me when he’s done. It seems pretty clear Noah was taught to go potty with a ‘good boy’ and a treat, and waits for it. Is that cute or what? He’s pleasantly plump, fed with love, has great leash manners (pulls towards squirrels a bit) and sits before being asked when he sees my hand near my treat pocket. In the park, he bounced a bit on the grass then posed for pictures like a star as his eyes continued to sparkle with “let’s have some fun”. Staff told me he likes toys, so we went to a corner of the building where I could take Noah off leash with a toy which he proceeded to tear apart. RIP soft toy. No soft toys for this guy. Noah says, “I need indestructible toys please (although I have so much fun tearing them apart)!” Spirited, playful and in turn affectionate, Noah has clearly been raised with love and is looking to find a new person or family with whom to share his life. Come meet him today!
08/30/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Noah pulls hard on the leash. He was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up. He was overexcited during handling, jumping up, grabbing at the leash, and was hard to position, but showed no aggression. Noah was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. He became uncomfortable during paw handling air snapping at the assessor hand. During the resources Noah put his body between the assessor and toy, showing no growling or stiffness. The behavior department feels that he would do best if placed with a New Hope partner who can follow up on this behavior in a more stable environment and can provide any necessary behavior modification before placement into a permanent home. Look: 3. Dog jumps on the Assessor, consistently rubs his shoulder on the Assessor, and will not allow Assessor to conduct the assessment. Sensitivity: 2. Dog displays high energy and movement, but it is directed toward getting closer to the Assessor. His body is soft, likely panting, may jump up between attempts to lick Assessor. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (may need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1: 4. Dog air snapped at the assessor hand Toy: 2. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is between you and the toy, and he is loose and wiggly. No growling or stiffness. Dog-to-dog: 2. Dog approaches helper dog with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, lip long or neutral.
